Pro ženy i pro muže vaří Žatecký pivovar tmavý ležák - Žatec Xantho - vskutku výjimečné pivo. Výběrem surovin a speciálním varným procesem se podařilo zvýšit obsah vysoce žádané látky zvané xanthohumol na téměř dvojnásobek. Kdo ochutná noblesní chuť tohoto černého klenotu, objeví čarovné účinky, které jsou v něm ukryty. 14.5°

Marko (4094) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 1, 2008
Sample at the Vinarna Hrozen RBESG tasting from a bottle supplied by.. asheft I think (thanks!)
Very dark brown colour. Lovely nose. A pungent aroma of roast malt, caramel and raisins. A very sweet caramel tastes with notes of something I can’t decypher from my notebook. Go me. Overall, thought that it was a very good beer and certainly the highlight of the night until then. Bringing these to the tasting was a great idea.

Wow....Bottle aquired at the beer store in Mala Strana Prague. This was a Dunkel? Had this while playing cards with my cousin back at the Hotel room. for me this was one of, if not the fullest bodied brews from the Czech Republic I had ever had. I was not struck by the forcefullness of ripe fruits as others seem to have been, it was there but I thought overshadowed by the bold volume of Saaz se along with the strikingly chewy mouthfeel of caramel and toffee. It was nearly too big for me at the time sice I had been traveling that day. Yeastiness in the nose along with hopped malt.
