Rotin (359) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - SEP 11, 2014
Bottle 0,5l. Sweet, toasty malt aroma. Flavor is full, smooth, malty sweet with tones of chocolate, caramel, bread, grains and toasted sunflower seeds. Light and pleasant hop bitterness. Well, good one.

asheft (2776) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 23, 2006
[bottle from Galerie Pivni in Prague] Clear, reddish brown with a nice, lasting yellowy foam that leaves plenty of lacing. Refreshingly "dark" aroma for this style containing coffee and smokey bacon blended with subtle yet typical Pilsner hops. While the aroma was above average, the flavour was a bit disappointing: fairly sweet with pilsnery hopping and obvious alcohol. A little bit of watermelony caramel as well. Medium body, medium carbonation.

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.

Ruprecht_007 (721) - Cesky Tesin, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 8, 2012
Barva: černá, neprůhledná. Pěna nažloutlá hustá držící. Vůně: karamelově sladová. Chuť: výrazně sladová se stopou karamelu a lehce nahořklá. Perla mezi černými pivy!
