Bottled. Dark amber colour, little beige longlasting head. Dark chocolate and caramel in aroma and hints of roasted malt. Sweet malty flavour with hints of plum and dark chocolate. Chocolate grows a bit in the finish. Sadly not much much aftertaste. Very wellbalanced.

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 ...

A dark red beer with a huge brown head. The aroma is roasted combined with rye bread and malt notes. The flavor is very sweet with some vinous caramel and malt notes, very smooth. The end is roasted.

Bottle. Small head but with a good long duration. Aroma is roast malt. Taste is on the sweet side with caramel and roast malt. Maybe a bit smoky too.

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.

Warning! Early amateur rating! Bottle in Bratislava. Light and sweet start. Light bodied - seems to contradict the dark colour. Dry finish, nutty undertone. Good.
