Bottle brought to me by some Czech relatives. Dark brown with a thick tan head. Malty and dry with a fair amount of bitterness. A very smooth and elegant Dunkel.

on tap at Klasterni Pivovar in Prague. Dark brown, large head, slightly hazy, as it is unfiltered. Lovely taste with flavours of wild berries, roasted malt, coffee and caramel. Not sweet at all.

(Draught at the brewery in Prague) Very dark amber, great offwhite head. Malty aroma, a bit roasted. Quite hoppy flavor at first but with alot of butter and toffee notes. Vanilla and a bit roasted after a while. Bitter finish, but also with vanilla and milky notes. Some grass . Great balance in this beer!!!

Draught at the monastery/brewery; Sv. Norbert Tmavý 14°
Dark brown to black color; nice creamy head. Very nice aroma, delicate, roasted malt. Soft mouthfeel, caramel first, some malt, roasted malt, very harmonious. Ends with some hops, roasted malt, caramel. Probably the best Dunkel I ever tried, for its harmony and elegance.

Thought this was just OK, but enjoyed the brewpub. Lots of malt flavor but no complexity.

4.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap at the pub. Pitch with a little chestnut seeping through at the bootom edge. Light brown, rich, and lacy head. Aroma dark and chocolatey, plenty of roast, a little toffee, light hops, maybe a little brown sugar. Whoa! hugely potent taste, massive coffee and chocolate. Herby. Damn that’s potent. Crisp start; middle is creamy and thick enough to cut with a spoon; end is herby, very dry roasty bitterness. Soft but full-bodied. Superb.
