Bottle, bought and drank in Kosice. Very dark brown color with a nice, lasting head. Good roasted aroma, malt-centered but quite dry. Roasted malt flavor, a bit sweet, but mostly dry, with ok hops. Richer than average. Dry hop and roasted malt finish. Very good.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled from a supermarket in Velky Meder. Very dark brown head, tan head, roasted malt and sweet nose. Roasted malts and hops come first in aroma, followed by sweet and gently roasted malt and chocolate in flavour. A bit watery, I think mine just suffered too much y being shaken in the car for hours. Flat bitter mouthfeel with sweetened taste. Very very nice.

Majdnem feketébe hajló színe és barnás fehér tömött habja van.Illata édeskés, kávés.Íze is édeskés,pörkölt malátás,enyhén kávés.Utóízében enyhén megjelenik a komló keserűje is.Közepes,kicsit vizes teste van.Kellemes délutáni sör egy jó kaja után.

I would put the dark lager of Zlaty Bazant a tick lower than the original lager ...
this brew is in the classic Slovakian dark style, rather dry, medium bodied and with a surprising lack of roasty notes ... well brewed, but lacks a bit of originality ...

Great on the train with some cheese and dark bread. My cousins thought that I was crazy going shopping for beers the day before we left Bratislava but I was not about to pay train prices for drinks on a 5.5 hour train jaunt. Glad I grabbed four of these. For a darker brew this one still had that lighter body. Maybe I am refering to this due to the fact that I have been drinking my share of impy stouts in the last weeks.

Very dark red, almost black. Pleasantly malty aroma. Very richly roasted burnt maltswhich evolve in the mouth to sweeter maltiness and finally ending as walnuts. Well balanced lager.
