Pours a deep copper with small amount of tan head that quickly disappears. A more roasty aroma than most dark lagers. Coffee, caramel, dark chocolate, and something that reminds me of the yoohoo chocolate drink in a bottle. Nothing like elementary school nostalgia while rating beers on the internet. Very grainy taste. Lots of sweet toasted malts that give way to an earthy hop finish. Drinks very light and smooth with a slight hop bitterness left on the tip of the tongue. A unique dark lager.

nearbeer (4157) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - JUL 15, 2015
500 ml. bb 09 09.16. Clear deep brown with a lasting film of foam. Nose is cocoa, caramel and a bit of dry grass. Flavor is the same with a nice dry roasty finish to balance the big malt. Light-medium body has a nice balance and a medium carbonation.

Aroma is dark sweet malts, caramel, toffee, and molasses. Taste is creamy, toffee, and sweet malts. Finishes with a light roastiness. Appearance is a clear brown with a thin pearl head that retains fairly well.

peponi (783) - Krakow, POLAND - FEB 12, 2015
Aroma: roasted malts, roasted caramel, roasted barley. Appearance: clear dark copper color, thin beige head. Taste: low bitterness (herbs), slightly acid, roasted dark malts, slightly sweet, caramel. Palate: medium body and high carbonation, roasted finish. Overall: Not so bad, but still a quite empty dark lager.

Beachmaster (233) - Oklahoma, USA - JAN 31, 2015
500 ml bottle into a pint glass. Pours black, with a big khaki head that lasts. Decent lacing. Not much on the nose. Taste is dark malt, but not a strong flavor. creamy mouth feel, with a long, somewhat sweet finish. Not bad, but not great, either. A pleasant enough session beer.

Buena cerveza checa tomada en el museo de la cerveza, oscura y un poco ligera, entra sola, muy suavecita,se puede repetir, pero mejor buscar otras.

adster (511) - HUNGARY - AUG 31, 2014
Karamellás illatok bontogatják szárnyaikat egy kissé füvesen fanyar, pörkölt kávés alaphang kíséretében. Ízében egyszerre édeskés és pirított karakterű, tejkaramellás és étcsokoládés, kakaós ízjegyek köntösébe öltöztetett főzet.

askewbrew (23) - Edmond, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 22, 2014
Pours to a buff head that lasts and laces. Transparent ruby black color. Slight roast and decocted malt aroma with a honey-like floral hop note. Flavor is reminiscent of molasses, coffee and toffee, with a balancing clean bitterness and hop spice. Mouthfeel is light medium. Overall an outstandingly satisfying and complex dark lager.
