Hazy brown with a smattering of tan froth. A light grassiness lofts over a sturdy toffee and cookie base. Broad, smoky sweetness with mild finishing hops and acidity. Fluffy carbonation, slick texture.

Somewhat singular in its sweetness

50cl bottle, best before 26.2.2009.

Jukkabro (3484) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 6, 2008
Deed dark red colored with medium sized beige head. Aroma is dominated by nice smoke and fine sweet roastiness, some caramel also here. Medium bodied. Flavor is more sweet with some dried fruits and plum, some roastiness in still strongly sweet aftertaste with mild hops. Well, nice aroma, overly sweet flavor.

Miksu (5046) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 2, 2008
0.5 l bottle. Dark reddish brown color with medium peige head. Caramelly and toasty aroma with licorice, dark bread and hint of grass. Caramelly and toasty flavor with some roasty charcoal notes towards finish. A bit watery palate. A bit boring ordinary dark lager.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
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: Almost black body with a medium tan 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 but thinner. Below average.
