Budvar tmavy served in a small glass goblet at brewery in 2011 (from notes).
Žatek hops and 3 types of Moravian barley: Munich, caramel and roasted.
A semi-dry malty flavor that is more bitter than sweet.
The aroma is typical of a Czech dark lager, but the flavor is less sweet, a tad more hoppy, and more complex.
Aroma is similar to the nearby Eggenberg dark that also uses Moravian barley.
Very dark mahogony, nearly opaque, with a light tan head that reduces rather quickly (typical for style) to a lating ring that leaves
Medium body and enough carbonation to impart some crispness
O - an outstanding Czech dark lager, although probably at its best here at the brewery. (Trying the beer again many km from the brewery, I find the beer to be indistinguishable from that at the brewery).

Seems dark enough even through bottle, very pleasant, mild hops aroma, very interesting hops. Not grassy, not herbal or very aromatic but the combination of... weird but very pleasant. Taste is pleasant light sweet plus medium bitter, more from roasted malt. Flavor reminds roasted rye bread plus Bohemian pilsner. I haven’t tried dunkels for long time and his seems very solid. Medium bodied, a bit velvet texture, seems medium to high carbonated, dry finish. Pleasant. greenclansman (906) - Nicosia, CYPRUS - AUG 21, 2013
