COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Ungstrup (29286) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - DEC 3, 2002
Beutiful red-brown beer with a small head. It has a nice aroma of a good malt blend, sweet with hints of liqurice. The taste contains no sweetness but a very dry hoppy bitterness - for the bitternes level not a suiting hop for my taste. It too contains hints of smoked malt - a little watery in the middle. Not a beer I’ll have again.

Papsoe (25085) - 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
