this is strange, duff decides he´s coming to visit, i figure we should go on a daytrip to žatec and then he comes out the next day and rates one of their beers. anyway, dark brown, caramel and toffee apple aroma. vanilla and coffee icecream with a surprising amount of late bitterness. luscious and nice, good to know there are still good tmaves out there

Bottle from Pivní galerie. Black color with orange head. Good dunkel (or schwarzbier? what’s the difference?) but inclination towards sourness. I like Herold more.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Surpised that this wasn’t in the database. Nice schwarz. Very dry and bitter, but soft at the same time. Softly buttery, with some light raisin, finishing bitter and floral, with subtle roasted/chocolatey malt, this was really, really nice, and extrememly drinkable.

UPDATED: JUN 5, 2009 Easy drinkable czech dunkel(rather dunkel) beer. Semi dark body with a tan head. Light roasted aroma, some caramel and cocoa. Moderated body, roasted flavor, cocoa and sourish yeast taste with a fine toasty caramel. I’ve tasted it again, called Zatec Premium Tmave. Fine, easy but delicious.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(bottle, as Žatec Premium Tmavé) Clear, dark brown colour with a beige and thick foamy head. Moderately sweet, nutty and roasty malty aroma with earthy notes and liquorice. Moderately sweet and slightly roast-bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Slightly molassy roast-malty taste with liquorice and a tinge of dark chocolate; sweet and roasty bitter finish with notes of chocolate and traces of metal in the aftertaste. Anyway a good one. 30.X.10
