COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
First beer we have cooked here after many years of break. Its origins reach back to Munich from the first half of the 19th century. Our St. Norbert tastes dryer and bitterer than the Munich lager. Whole malt well hopped beer, showing the Munich, caramelized and roasted malt in its taste.

KyotoLefty (6571) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 22, 2010
Draught at the brewpub. Pretty, fine, somewhat rocky head on a siny black beer. Aroma and flavor of licorice, chocolate, dry and woody. Smooth body, relatively high carbonation and hopping. Nicely bitter finish with a wood or charcoal edge. Clean and fresh, though maybe a bit boring.

Todeon (325) - SWEDEN - JUL 31, 2010
Bottle. Dark brown/black with a touch of red color. Aroma is dry roasted notes along with some burned brownsugar. Nice big beighe head. Taste is plenty of roasted malt and caramel along with some nice leafy/cigar notes. Feels really big for just 5.5%. Finish is really dry and bitter with some dark chocolate and cigar tones that lingers on for a while to make this a really nice beer! Creamy mouthfeel. Carbonation is medium, a bit aggressive but not unpleasant. Luxurious!

ladnewton (1439) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 27, 2010
On tap at Klásterní Pivovar Strahov on 12th July 2010. Deep red, virtually black with creamy pale brown lasting head lacing fully. Malty biscuit aroma then plenty of burnt caramel and roasted malt, some hints of espresso coffee and a touch of leafy cigar/pipe smoke. Zingy mouthfeel and very bitter aftertaste. I cannot remember this beer tasting so good! (previous tasting September 2004)

Rastacouere (6134) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 12, 2010
Draught @ the brewpub. Easily my favourite of the Tmave I’ve had up to now. That one wore a dense, huge beige head that could hold a coin atop its coke-coloured, veiled body. Chocolatey, toasty and gently nutty nose that is surprisingly aromatic for a dark lager. The engaging leafy hops help. The mouthfeel is ridiculously round, yet it feels light, simply enveloping your mouth and never disturbing you with anything resembling agressive carbonation. Top add to my satisfastion, it is dry despite its ample body and just keeps putting on its chocolatey show after you,ve swallowed. Impressive to pack so much in a single pint. Sure the place is expensive for Prague, but that level of quality is rare even among Czech land.

Brown, ruby color with a tan lacing head. Caramel, sourish yeast, roasted malts and some herbal hops in the nose. Medium bodied one with moderated carbonation, mild sweet caramel and toffe flavor. Dry, roasted aftertaste. Easy drinkable, fine.

Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - MAY 25, 2010
On tap at the brewery. Dark brown color with a beige, lacing head. Caramel, brown sugar, yeast, roasted malts and light hops in the aroma. Light sweetness in the taste with a dry, roasted aftertaste. Low carbonation in a thin body. Not my style, but a good dunkel from those I have tasted.

rakkasan (142) - Bresso, ITALY - OCT 23, 2009
on tap - Kalsterni pivovar Strahov. Dark brown with fluffy, creamy head. Coffe and caramel aroma which carried over to the flavor along with a nice hint of roasted malt. Lighter body than I expected making it very easy to drink.
