A dark lager with an exceptionally fine taste which is talked about with recognition and admiration. Staropramen Dark is exceptional for its calming, full-bodied, sweetish caramel taste with gentle, hopsy bitterness. It is a taste you will never forget.

Habanero (3090) - Tranbjerg, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2005
Tan, medium sized and avarage lasting head. Brown body. Aroma of herbs and some hops. Flavour of malt, herbs, bread and with small notes of dryed fruit. Watery palate. Tiny biter aftertaste

larsga (6626) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 1, 2005
Small, tan head with coarse lace over clear dark brown body. Aroma is light and sweet; not very strong. Taste is clean, light, not too powerful. Malty, with quite a bit of roastiness; roastiness grows more pronounced in aftertaste, which also has nice, rounded bitterness. A well-made beer, but not very exciting.

Joffe (3) - USA - OCT 23, 2005 does not count
Great beer but not a knockout. Ultimately not as memorable as the Velkopopvicky Kozel Cerny beer, which is still the best Czech dark beer. Kozel Cerny (dark) did just win the gold medal at the Belgian world beer competition in 2005. Staropramen is great but not as great as Kozel. Compare them and you will understand.

yngwie (14935) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 29, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottle. Dark copper with off-white head. A disappointing aroma, mostly light malty. More interesting flavour, with roasted elements and some licorice that hides in the background. There’s also caramel in the flavour. Nice hops towards the end. (050929)

Engelsmann (651) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 12, 2005
Bottled. pours a dark brown, with a tan head. Aroma is malty and fruity, with roasted notes. Taste is sweet fruity, and of roasted dark malts

On tap in Praha:

The Lure:
Roasted nuts and caramel make up the semblance of a brown ale. Straightforward and easily decipherable.

The Festivities:
Roasted malt and its bitterness painted evenly onto the fruity caramel and plentiful nuts. All flavors are united into one creamy body, a mariage which again is quite brown ale-like.

Making your own bread.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Psyched to see this brew in Akureyri, Iceland. Delicious, though for the style it could’ve been less fizzy and a tad sweeter to really impress me. Thin body with lots of carbo and moderate sweetness.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 29, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 29, 2005 Dark garnet color with fizzy tan head. Looks like Coke and tastes a little too much like soda as well. Flavors of licorice and caramel, bordering on sinewy. Very fizzy mouthfeel that complements the taste well if you want a refreshing drink, but doesn’t feel like you’re drinking a beer.
