Light brown head on a dark amber body. Caramel and chocolate in the taste, with some fruit. Well balanced, not too strong taste, a nice companion for a meal.

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.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2007 Very fine dunkel. Creamy, very dark head over almost pitch black body. Slight coffee flavour, maybe a bit too thin indeed but very refreshing and relaxing.

Dark colour with white-brown head, in taste I felt caramel and moderate sweetness I find only low bitterness, not really sweet, with coffee & malts aroma.

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 ...

Very dark red with a beige head. Strong fruity and roasty aroma. Roasty notes and surprising maltiness in flavour, a strong, roasty bitterness.

Reminds me of many Porters. It’s sweet, and has a nice finish. I’d keep this in my fridge if I could get it.

Slovak dark beer with mild bitterness and a caramel taste. A little bit too sweet but I like it.
