Barva: měděná, pěna hustá, držící. Vůně: výrazná sladově chlebová, Nasládlý chlebový nástup, hořkost jen velice mírná. Výrazné sladocvé tóny. Tohle pivo mě teda neoslovilo...

Avar Dérer Tmavý Ležák
(Draught at Hopfenreich, Berlin, 16 July 2015. 6.0% according to beer list) Black colour with frothy, beige head. Malty, roasted nose with chocolate, coffee and caramel. Malty, roasted, slightly fruity taste with notes of raisins, prunes, coffee, chocolate and a gentle roasty bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Quite fruity for a tmavý, but rather tasty. Quite nice.

Kaum CO˛, kein Schaum. Der Antrunk ist süffig-süßlich, vollmundig. Zum Hauptteil wird das Bier süßlich-malziger, sehr intensiv. Caramellig-röstmalzig, leicht säuerlich. Sehr sirup-ähnlich. Zum Nachgeschmack hin wird es leicht herb, Röstmalz --> Lakritz, Kaffee, Sirup. Auf der Zunge bleibt eine röstmalzig-konzentrierte Note zurück. --> Mir zu intensiv-konzentriert!

Draught @ BBF13. Pours clear amber with small white head. Clear aroma of hops with mild fruity notes. Sweetish, malty aroma with notes of citrus. Sweetish and bready flavour of malt with notes of hops and grass. Bready finish. A trifle disappointing but not bad as such. Smells like an APA but tastes like an SHV.

Trochę prosta stylistyka etykiety, ale za to krachlowe zamknięcie na tym niepasteryzowanym piwie. Piwo produkowane dla małego lokalnego browary na śląsku w Polsce. Ale ciut wodniste niestety się mi wydaje. Zdobyte na targach ze starociami.

On tap at Hostinec Richtár Jakub. Clear golden colour, small white creamy head. Taste is light to medium bitter, light to medium sweet, strange bitter-sweet combination, and a little mild. Aroma of grassy hops, again mild. Dull and uninteresting. Though quite refreshing, this beer rather fails.

International Green Week, Berlin 2012: our second day and we find ourselves in hall 17 where food and drink from Italy, Switzerland and The Czech Republic were on offer (as well as a few other countries) I notice a spare table and a couple of barstools, so plop the wife down and peruse the taps around me: I get the wife a Budweiser Budvar and myself this lovely looking ‘Schwarz aus Bohmen’ beer. 0.3 litres in a vase shaped, badged glass. A beige head sat on top of the ruby red body and all was well with the world. The smell was of dark fruits and malts; raisins, plums and dates being the fruits, caramel and toffee being the malt aromas. The taste was very similar to the smells, but with some chocolate arriving mid-mouthful: might sound sweet but it wasn’t, smooth and almost creamy, but not overly sweet by any means.

draught at Zly Casy beer festival Prague, May 2009. Hazy golden yellow, mid-sized creamy white head. Hoppy nose. Malty base with some herbal-grassy hops and a touch of boiled peas (?). Malty-fruity with a touch of veggies. Not outstanding but solid and interesting.

Back from a Czech Republic pub-crawl this is part of my express ratings for the “typical” Světlý 11°- (Czech light Pils), Světlý 12°+ (Czech Pils), Polotmavý (Czech Amber Lagers) and Tmavý (Czech Black Lagers). Non-typical beers will receive personalized descriptions after the express ratings.
----------------------------------------------------------------
How: Tap at Pivovarsky Klub, Prague
The look: Dark ruby body with medium beige head
To me a typical Czech Tmavé (Czech Black Lager) is: Dark malts and barely any roastiness sensation. Some dark fruits flavours (raisins with a little figs, dates and prunes) wrapped in smooth dark caramel (borderline toffee) and a subtle chocolate note. A bit bready. Moderately sweet without much hops presence and only a mild bitterness (voluntary unbalanced it seems). Very smooth body, like a watery cream.
This one: As above, very typical.

My Bottom Line:
Prunes and figs shower the caramel maltiness with their fruity sagacity, as chocolate roams on by adding complexity to this sweet Tmavé.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the brownish copper.
-The fruity sweetness in this may recall brown rum at times.
-The body is soft and well-rounded, the archetypal Tmavé build.
-That fruitiness (prune-driven) could get annoying to those who don’t like this kind of fruit.

aroma of roasted malt. Beautiful colour and large, creamy and consistent head. Not as sweet as many Czech dark beers, quite dry and full of taste (coffee, caramel and roasted malt).

Flip-top bottle:Deep amber coloured, mid-sized tanned head, lacing and quickly diminishing to a small, stable creamy layer; a mix of dark malt, toasted and roasted malt in the quite dry aroma; robust dry (malty-) bitter flavour, light bodied; lingering malty, a bit coffeeish finish with a little sourness detectable. A good example, well crafted.............

Draught. Weak, slightly roasted, but pilsnerlike aroma. Dark brown colour, small creamy head. The flavour is quite roasted, as well as the aftertaste. Flavour also has a little fruitiness. A bit thin, but this is of course Schwarzbier.

Tap at the Leipziger Bierbörse, where it was listed as a Schwarzbier (and tasted closer to one than a Dunkel). Rich, frothy, creamy, lacing tan head, very dark ruby color. Slight roasty flavors and a very dry aftertaste. Where’s the aroma though? Very weak. Oily, medium body. A Disappointment.
