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.

What a dunkel by the Staropramen Breweries!!! So tasteful, that you can drink at any time. This is really a great experience. Typical standard for Czech brewers, the best in the world.

Another one tried in Budapest - from bottle at hotel. The Guinness of lager?! Really delicious. Like a dunkel with more chocolate and malty flavor.

A dark beer with a lovely burned taste.

What a surprice! Great beer, with a real great og fine aroma and taste of something burnt, coffee. Hints of chocolate, but the coffee is real present. A-buy-again-beer!

I love this beer!! Had it in a bar in Tel Aviv, Israel. Very dark with medium head and a sweet AND slightly bitter aftertaste. My favorite dark lager. Here is my plea and I know it belongs in the forums. I can’t get this beer in the U.S.! Email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and we can work something out it you can get it in your country. Thanks and regards to all fellow beer lovers.

One of the beers that convince the Czechs they have the best beer in the world.
