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.

From tap at the brewpub. Pours dark brown, unclear and with a lacing light brown head. Mild roasted malt aroma. Flavour is roasted malt together with a nice liqourice hops flavour. Ends dry and bitter with a nice lingering liqourice spiced hops finish.

Draught. Very deep ruby red colour, big beige creamy/bubbly head. Lots of lace. Aroma is caramel malts, some toffee and mildly rubbery notes. Flavour is very roasted malts, some toffee, licorice and mild herbal notes. Longlasting roasted aftertaste.

Grovlam (4157) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2008
Draught @ the brewpub. Average beige and creamy head that mostly lasted. Good display of lacework. Quit black color. Aroma of mild coffee, sweet chocolate, roasted malt. Over the palate came mild hoppy and dusty floral notes. Medium to almost full bodied with an average carbonation. Moderated bitter and sweet flavor in balance. Lingering roasted malty and bitter hoppy finish. Nice crispe and fresh that was very drinkable.

coldbrewky (1457) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - JUN 1, 2008
Draft at Strahov Monastary Prague: Lighter medium body with hardly a taste after the initial front of tounge assault. Not much nose. Weaker oily head with sandy lacing. A good swashing about the mouthe hepls this brew out a good bit and releases the nutty dark malts. Some carmelization. Overall not a bad dunkel. I mixed this with their weiss and it was Magic.

Stew41 (1760) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - MAY 29, 2008
Well made for the style (more porter for my tastes) but perhaps a bit pedestrian. Light milk chocolate on the nose. Palate shows medium strength sweet chocolate with a sliver of bitterness. Solid if not spectacular.

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 7, 2008
Back from a Czech Republic pub-crawl this is part of my express ratings for the “typical” Světlý 11°- (Czech light Pils), Světlý 12°+ (Czech Pils), Polotmavý (Czech Amber Lagers) and Tmavý (Czech Black Lagers). Non-typical beers will receive personalized descriptions after the express ratings.
-------- /> How: Tap at brewpub (Klásterní Pivovar Strahov, Prague)
The look: Black body with medium beige head
To me a typical Czech Tmavé (Czech Black Lager) is: Dark malts and barely any roastiness sensation. Some dark fruits flavours (raisins with a little figs, dates and prunes) wrapped in smooth dark caramel (borderline toffee) and a subtle chocolate note. A bit bready. Moderately sweet without much hops presence and only a mild bitterness (voluntary unbalanced it seems). Very smooth body, like a watery cream.
This one: As above with a little tobacco hint. Average.

DruncanVeasey (7316) - NUNEATON, CONF N, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 2, 2008 At the brewery. Pitch capped with mountainous beige. Deceptively citrussy nostril with some very English sulphur. Smells almost like a cask ’golden ale’. Bitter hop punch (mandarin,grapefruit) without much malt roast or chocolate. Vaguely smoky, but it could be the choking nicotine. Tasty, uncomplicated, juicily hopped...

Ernest (6356) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 27, 2008
Draught, Strahov/Praha. Head is initially average sized, frothy, light brown, mostly lasting. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, coffee, chocolate). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, moderately bitter. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Straightforward and plain but decent. If I hadn’t had the Kout dunkel a day or two earlier, I might have liked this a bit more, but it wasn’t even close.
