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.

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.

Tummanruskea olut pienellä vaahdolla. Tuoksu makean maltainen ja hieman paahteinen, maku pehmeä ja makea, helposti juotava ja maistuva tsekki.

nephirem (218) - 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.

Розлив. Прага. Самый не вкусный чешский темный лагер.

Teran (278) - Belgrade, SERBIA - JUL 20, 2016
Typical Czech tmavý, copper colour. Roasted aroma, palate watery. Dry and low in alcohol, because Czechs like to drink gallons. Easy to drink.

DraftDodger (1039) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 8, 2016
Copenhagen 8/7 2016. 33 cl bottle from Fřtex. A drawing of good old Prague on the label in order to convey that you are holding a real Czech beer and a red ribbon declaring that this is "Number 1 Beer in the World". Modesty seems to be a Czech virtue. Pours clear very dark brown with off-white head. Settles as creamy layer of clinging foam. Lacing on the side of the glass. Aroma is a bit pilsner-like. A little brown sugar and wood in addition to the sweet malts. Medium carbonaton and watery palate. Taste is sweet with only very ubdued bitterness. Some nuts and wood in the aftertaste. I would not call it "The Number One Beer in the world" but a quite pleasant very light Dunkel.

nybol (1365) - DENMARK - JUL 2, 2016
En mřrk udgave af den berřmte řl. Nok ikke deres bedste. Den smager af for lidt, Let syrlig, nćsten ingen humle. En řl der lćsker, hvis man vil ha’ en der er lidt mřrkere end end en pilsner.

Andris1988 (11) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 24, 2016
Nutty toasted chocolate-like and caramel-like malty sweetness in aroma and flavor. It is a good dark beer. Nagyon jó csokis-karamellás barna sör. Ár-érték arányban az egyik legjobb.

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2016 It has dark brown chokolate color, the foam top is low and tan. Aroma is sweet caramel. Sweet taste a little bit metallic aftertaste. Drinkable. This is one of my favorites.
