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.

Rastacouere (6174) - 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.

Dogbrick (11513) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - APR 15, 2009
On draught at the brewpub. The beer is a nearly opaque dark brown color with a medium beige head that dissipates slowly. Small patches of lacing. Roasted malt aroma with notes of coffee and hops. Medium body with a roasty character and flavors of malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Light hops are present at times too. The finish is roasty with a lingering malty aftertaste. Pretty good overall.
