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.

33 cl bottle from monopoly Alko. Pours dark brown with a brown head. Aroma is roasted malt and light fruity. Flavor starts sweet and with a malt flavor, light roasted. Good, but nothing special.

Marko (4991) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 23, 2016
Version brewed at Borsodi, bottled at Palermó Pizzéria, Szigetvár. Our organizers had fucked up so we ended up not being able to go to any grocery store during our trip to Hungary, so we ended up at the only open place in central Siget/Szigetvár, where I got this (faced with a limited Borsodi-driven selection) as the least bad choice. Turned out, shockingly, that it was a new rate too, so here goes. Red-copper, clear body with an off white head. Light mild caramel aroma. Dry caramel taste, slightly sweetish, vaguely roasty. A bit soapy. OK little dark lager.

klukas (125) - Rijeka, CROATIA - SEP 4, 2016
Enjoyed: Poured from a bottle into a lager glass. Appearance: Dark, brown colour, with medium dirty-white foam. Aroma: Very gentle aroma of barley and caramel. Palate: Medium body, gentle carbonation. Taste: Gentle sweetness. Roasted malt. Caramel, chocolate. Medium bitter aftertaste. Overall impression: Very enjoyable and tasty. Alias made in Zagreb Brewery is much worse.

JorgeLee (1800) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2016
On tap, Chateau Dobris. Actually not that dark brown, hints of red, colour a bit washed out looking. Thick white foam. Great malty flavours, malt loaf, fruit, bread. Nice mouthfeel from carbonation. No hop flavour to speak of, but good bitterness to balance; much more drinkable than say the Kozel dark. Decent.

mice (819) - FINLAND - AUG 10, 2016
Tummanruskea olut pienellä vaahdolla. Tuoksu makean maltainen ja hieman paahteinen, maku pehmeä ja makea, helposti juotava ja maistuva tsekki.

nephirem (272) - CROATIA - AUG 9, 2016
Pours dark ruby, almost black body with small, off-white head. Smell of burnt malts, yeast, caramel, smoke. Medium body, softly carbonated with smooth texture. Bittersweet taste. Aroma of burnt malts, caramel, toffee, chocolate and licorice. Long, slightly bitter finish. Overall, nice one.

Shuffle (26) - Budapest, HUNGARY - AUG 1, 2016
A habja kicsi és az is hamar felszívódik. A színe viszont szép mahagóni barna. Az íze kicsit keserű, kicsit karamellás, de leginkább semmilyen, amit tovább ront a borsodi gyártmányokra jellemző csapvíz buké. Gyöngyöző pohárba, nagy melegbe azért iható.
