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.

UPDATED: JAN 30, 2004 Red-brown color, not very much aroma. Tastes of coffee and a touch of cocoa. Smooth and fruity.

beermatrix (1497) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - JUL 15, 2003
Super rich, dark amber with a huge, frothy, foamy head thats 2 inches and sticks around. Settles, leaving patchy, tight, webby lace. Smell is very deeply roasted malt with a bit of liquorish and some floral hop notes, somewhat soft. Taste is about the same as the smell, very soft, subtle, and smooth with good deeply flavored maltiness, slightly earthy. Theres some very subtle hints of liquorish, dry hops, and maybe even some rye. Its a bit on the light side in the flavor and feel though. All in all, this is a pretty decent dark lager.

Dark brown coloured. Very pleasant brew with loads of soft maltiness. Good body and lasting aftertaste.

Pernille (518) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2005
Bottled. According to the label, this beer only holds 4,4% alc. Oh well. It is a lovely dark amber with a nice head. It smells and tastes like liquorice. Really intense, black liquorice. -Like the pastilles, that some men carry around with them. Funny taste. But definitely not bad.

jspruit (122) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 3, 2007
Bought this 0.5L bottle in Prague while visiting and drank it back at home in Ireland. Pours a rich dark amber with a 1.5 finger head that had a bit of yellowish to it but was basically white and it disappeared slowly into a decent lace that stuck around throughout the drink. The smell was great malty hints and some light floral & fruity hints. The taste is exactly what you would expect from the smell and was very smooth going down with more and more light fruity sugary notes coming through as it warmed up. Not a strong or harsh beer that went down great and something I could drink all day long-wish it was more available.

BeerBiker (1412) - Odense, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2008
I wanna rate this beer as I felt it tasted the first time I sampled it many years ago on tap in Praha. One of the best beer ever at that time. Fullbodied with a dark caramel character, sweet and with not much carbonation. Fresh and I want more!!!
