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.

Koelschtrinker (14073) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 5, 2011
Voller Malzantrunk mit passender, aber eher hintergründiger Röstigkeit. Im Mittelteil folgt ein Durchhänger, später nimmt das Ganza dann aber wiederzu und bleibt dann, nachdem eine leichte Bitternote hinzukommt, konstant. 12/10/9/9//9

Nagyon sötétbarna színe van, bézs habja sűrű és enyhén krémes, sokáig kitart. Illatában a pörkölt maláta aromája a meghatározó, kevés karamell és étcsoki is érződik, finom. Ízében a pörkölt maláta már visszafogottabban érződik, a keserű csoki és pörkölt magvak ellenben már fontoskodva jelennek meg, a lágy keserűségről egy kevés komló gondoskodik. Közepesen testes, száraz, lágyan szénsavas, mégis kicsit komolyabban kell venni, kell egy kis idő mire felvesszük a sör tempóját. Soha rosszabb dunkelt!

Oakes (13860) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 20, 2011
Very dark brown. Big thick head. Chocolate, bready dark malt aroma. Quite toasty, with a light chocolate undertone. Smooth - a little soft. Nice dark lager.

draft at brewpub. Gorgeous! With thick head. Subtle carob aroma and some soft phenols. Soft palate. Lots of nice mild chocolate flavors. Tasty, fun brew.

culchiem (3148) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 19, 2010
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2010 Bottle. Jet black with a full beige head. Literally jumped out of the bottle, once the cork was popped a gush of beer came out even though it was standing in the fridge for a few days. Light notes of roasted malts. Flavour is much stronger malt with a dry smoky finish. Quite dense and creamy finish

KyotoLefty (8121) - 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 (1669) - 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 (6162) - 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.
