Erzengel (6242) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2014
Schöne dunkelbraune Farbe mit beigem Schaum. Das Bier verstöhmt einen angenehm malzig-röstmalzig-süßlichen Geruch. Im Antrunk ist da Bier herb-malzig mit angenehm milder Note. Zum Hauptteil entwickelt es einen vollmundig-malzigen Geschmack mit süßlich-röstmalzigen Einschlägen und einer ganz schwachen Bitterkeit. Die malzige Süße üebrwiegt aber über dem röstmalzig-herben. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine röstmalzig-trockene, zugelich aber malzig-süßliche Note.
→ Leckeres röstmalziges Dunkles. Für meinen Geschmack aber ein Bisschen zu süß! 10/12/10/11

Glouglouburp (6103) - 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 Klub Skorpion, Pilsen, Czech Republic
The look: Very dark amber body with a medium tan 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 but a bit less fruity, a bit more roasted with light cacao notes.

McTapps (6045) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2013
Dark brown-ruby colour with big and steady ehad and medium to smooth body. Nose of sour malt. Taste of dark nuts, dark bread, vanilla, torf, rich malt and caramel. Little bit too metallic finish, but otherwise really nice and easy to drink.

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2013
Bottle shared with McTapps. Easy to drink one even if it´s deep and bit milky in its look and the taste. Malt all the way which is not rocket science but a solid one.

Sigmund (5987) - Tau, NORWAY - APR 4, 2005
500 ml bottle, bought at Pivni Galerie, Prague. Typical dunkel reddish brown colour, large lasting off-white/beige head. Moderate malty aroma, notes of caramel and leather, maybe some dark fruits too. Low carbonation, a bit thin mouthfeel, malty sweet with notes of molasses, minimal bitterness. Nice enough to drink, but I’d really like some more hops to balance the sweetness. Must be another beer for the target group "convalescents and nursing mothers".

Borresteijn (5646) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 4, 2012
50cl Bottle from Tesco Plzen. Deep dark brown to black colour, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, burnt caramel, nuts, dusty cocoa. Flavour is light sweet, cocoa, roasted malts, light coffee, nuts, bitter burnt caramel finish. Light-bodied. Good dunkel imo.

kappldav123 (5588) - GERMANY - DEC 27, 2007
The bottle looks good, but the coloures should be combinded better. There’s not much foam in the glass. The beer starts very vapid, becomes a little bit drier in the middle, but the finish in nearly washy. An average beer.
