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.

klukas (121) - 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 (1793) - 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.

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

nephirem (270) - 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.
