3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap at the brewpub. Dark mahogany coloured with a beige head. Malty aroma with dark fruits, some roasty notes, dried dark fruits, caramel and herbs. Medium to moderate sweet with nice malty flavours and a balanced bitterness. Smooth, but feels a bit light too, anyway easy to drink and quite tasty.

Draught @ the brewpub. Pours hazy very dark brown with stable, creamy light tan head. Dark aroma of roast, malt, caramel and nuts, with touches of hops. Bitter, roasty flavour, with sweetish malty and estery notes and touches of caramel. Hoppy finish with some sweetish touches. Well-balanced and very enjoyable. A prime example of Tmavý!

Butelka zakupiona w Klasztorze. Po przelaniu pi?kny ciemny kolor. G?sta piana oblepiajaca szk?o. Zapach: karmel, palona kawa. W smaku identycznie. Niestety w budynku w mojej butelce (warka do 14.07.2015) wyczuwalne ?elazo. Generalnie jedno z lepszych piw ze Strahova.

Rounding out the Strahov tasting - I actually passed on trying the IPA and I think one other because I wanted to keep ordering this. Definitely one of the better tmavys in the business. Best of the Strahov set - original and best. Big coffee, hops, and malt - just great strong flavor. A beer with excellent impact. Brought me back to 2010 on my first trip to Prague, when I stumbled upon this place and fell in love. Tasted even better this time!

From tap - 0,25l at brewpub. Pours clear dark brown liquid, medium frothy tan to brown head, good stability, Aroma: roasted notes, coffee, malty, dark chocolate, minor smoke notes, very good, Taste: medium sweet, medium bitter, dry, malty, roasty and smoke notes, sausage - meaty, very good, Palate: medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long bitter roasty finish, Overall: very good, nice smooth palate, perhaps only some thing, that disturbs me in the aftertaste - in the aftertaste, the mouthfeel gets bit empty/ flat, but the body, bitterness and caramel are ok. I m not able to describe it more precisely.

Thanks to David’s sister/mother for bringing this back. Really solid, lightly sweet malty lager with some nuttiness, caramels. Drinks more like an amber lager than I expected from the color.
