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.

yngwie (14762) - 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)

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.

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.

joergen (22447) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 27, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2005 Bottled. Clear red brown coloured with a medium sized beige head. Malty aroma with notes of dark bread and dried fruits. Flavour of malts with notes of dark bread, caramel and fruits.

KimmoS (51) - FINLAND - JUN 8, 2005
Very dark brown color. Some head but it does not keep. Nice yeasty fresh aroma. I like how it feels in my mouth. Slightly bitter. Nothing fancy but a nice beer. I like the bottle (green glass, black/gold label).

hammenlind (737) - Sundbyberg, SWEDEN - MAY 29, 2005
(Draught at Atmosphere Bar, Prague) Dark brown, almost black with a thin white diminishing head. Sweet, malty, sugary nose. Sweet caramel flavour with hints of liquorice and toffee. Light to medium bodied.

Papsoe (25074) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2005
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2005 (Bottle 50 cl) With typical German flair for pretty names this is renamed "Staropramen - das Prager Schwarzbier" at 4,6% ABV. Very classical dark lager with a reddish tint. Limited head and a lightly smoked edge from the dark malts. Soft with a limited bitterness. Pleasant and easy to drink. I’ve also had this named "Staropramen Cerný" and "Staropranen Dark Prague Beer" at 4,4% ABV. 210499/190502/180904
