Topvar 11 % tmavý výčapný ležiak je charakteristický svojim typickým buketom, ktorý je zmesou vôní špeciálnych sladov a kvalitného chmeľu. Lahodnosť piva spočíva v harmonickej kombinácii svetlého, bavorského, karamelového a farebného sladu. Má výraznú tmavú farbu, sladkastú karamelovú príchuť a primeranú, miernu horkosť.(from the website of the brewery...)

11% that’s weaker than the 10° used to be? Go Slovak Republic :D. 0.5l bottle, Topvar Premium Tmavé, brought by ogivlado from Bratislava and shared with me (thanks!)
Poured a very dark red-brown, almost black with a medium sized tan head that went away at a medium pace. Quite impressive. The nose showed promise too, dusty macchiato, pleasant chocolate, sweet and nice. And, to our delight, the taste fulfilled the promise. Nice bittersweet roasty coffee maltiness, notes of chicory, long roasty bitter aftertaste. A superb, well, I’d put it under schwarzbier but it doesn’t matter, a superb dark lager, especially for the strength.

Transparent ruby brown color. Average frothy tanned head. Chocolate, molasses, coke, brown sugar in the aroma. Mild sweet molasses, bread, liquorice flavors with light sour yeasty notes. Slight grassy hops in the aftertaste. Balanced, easy, pleasant.

Light dessert dunkel one. Althought the beer has a lower gravity, it is a nice one. It has a dark brown body with a huge and stable foamy beige head. In the nose i can feel some roasted grains, cocoa, some coffee, a light sourish yeast perfume. Medium bodied beer with a nice roasted character, cocoa-dark chocolate taste, some caramel, toffee. Fine roasted aftertaste.The beer was a positive disappointment. Not the biggest boom of the slovakian beer tradition, but a nice and easy drinkable dunkel stuff.
