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.

LoveCaissa (873) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - DEC 13, 2002
Very nice Czech dunkel! Wonderful almost porter-like aroma with hints of coffee, toffee, and chocolate. The flavour is very pleasant and more like a traditional dunkel: roasted malts and a dry, (malty) bitter finish.

Another good Czech dunkel. Dark brown color, coffee aroma. Little bit dry, bitter finish.

Oh all places I had this on tap after a Spa day at the Roman Baths in Baden Baden , chocolate toffee with a long dry finish. Page 438 of Michael Jackson’s of Great Beer Guide and only 245 of his 500 Classic Beers to go.

larsniclas (6145) - Billdal, SWEDEN - MAY 25, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2004 Draught at The Red Lion, Gothenburg. Some coffee and chocolate. Fresh taste to be that dark, only some sweetness. Maybe some cocoa too.

Mads Langtved (2244) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - JUN 20, 2003
A classic dunkel. Very smooth and malty. Quite fresh and clean. A nice example of a great "dunkel" beer. Not as heavy and agressive as most German versions.

jerohen (2076) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2003
Cloudy dark coloured. Roasted aroma. Soft flavour, creamy, liquorice, bready. Smooth palate. Nice.

iwantalambic (1478) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - SEP 7, 2003
Red chesnut brown, with a thin, but very persistant light brown head. Wonderful burnt/roasted chesnuts, over an open fire, with lots of smoke. . . The fire is blazing with large oaks surrounding. Woody, gritty palate that is all around nice, different and unqiue. Strong flavours of sweet oak, smoke, buttered toast, a fabulously well balanced and flavourful beer.

ThomasE (5174) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 28, 2004
Dark reddish colour with only a small head. The taste has a nice sweet and smoked edge.

turbothy (1141) - Bonn, GERMANY - JUN 9, 2004
Almost no head. Nice flavour, fresh, bittersweet taste. Pleasant malty aftertaste.

Psyched to see this brew in Akureyri, Iceland. Delicious, though for the style it could’ve been less fizzy and a tad sweeter to really impress me. Thin body with lots of carbo and moderate sweetness.
