4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This is one of those beers that just hits me the right way. There is nothing truly extraordinary about it - it is quite smooth and drinkable, with notes of caramel and chocolate - but the simplicity strikes me as honest. Not all of Zatec’s Lagers are all that impressive, considering the age of the brewery, but this one has long been a favorite of mine.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Láhev 330 ml. Aroma je znát po karamelu a má lehký kvasnicový nádech. Pěna je světle hnědá, jemná, vysoká a držící. Barva samotného piva je temná rubínová. Chuť má kávový střed s nádechem třešní a kakaa, okraje jsou sladové a finiš je jemně hořký a nevýrazný.

A very enjoyably Czech Tmavy! Flavorful aroma, nice opaque ruby appearance, tastes of roasty malt with cocoa highlights. Manages to have both an earthy taste and a clean caramel finish. Has a great full body and is creamier than other dark lagers.

Dark ruby red, brown actually. Light brown foam head. Aroma is bit malty, bit caramel. Taste starts of little licorice, turning little caramel, not too strong. Lasting fresh taste in mouth. (Velp 201311)

in bottle ... this was quite a nice easy drinking dunkel. Notes of cocoa with a creaminess to it ... better than expected and actually smoother than some of the German dunkels. I would buy this again
