COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Prémiový tmavý ležák doplňuje tradiční nabídku piva z pivovaru Budějovický Budvar, n. p. od roku 2004. Je vyroben stejným postupem jako originální světlý ležák, za použití nejvybranějšího žateckého chmele, moravského sladu, vody čerpané ze 300 m hlubokých artéských studní a tří druhů speciálních barevných ječných sladů: mnichovského, karamelového a praženého.

Charakterizuje jej výrazně tmavá barva, suchá, jemně hořká karamelová chuť bez dominance sladkosti. Vůně je delikátní po praženém sladu.

Spab (3628) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 12, 2016
500 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a dark, slightly reddish, brown with average-sized light tan head. Aroma is toasted grains, coffee and wet straw. Flavour is dry, roasted grains, hints of coffee and a damp straw note. Body on the lighter side of medium. Ok.

Raistlin (371) - London, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 7, 2016
A very dark red-brown, almost black. Foamy, light brown head. Chocolate, cola, and molasses on the nose. A sweet start (cola again) with a drier finish. Aroma has slightly roasted malts, fair nuts, bread, slight licorice, faint notes of green coffee beans. Taste is slightly sweet up front, with a well balanced dose of bitterness. Thinner than i expected, and with very low carbonation.

DerWeg (1616) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 6, 2016
From the 500ml bottle it pours almost black with a mocha coloured head. Soft grassy sweet-dry-sour aroma. Taste caramelly and bready malts with a small edge of roasty dryness, fresh bready sourness. Chocolate emerges. Saaz are classic noble with delicate bitterness and sweet grass and faintly lemony. Very poised medium palate. Munich Caramel and Roasted malts in description agree with my assessment, I’m guessing all legit ingredients no fake malt extract here yes? Better than I expected, cool addition the LCBO!

500ml bottle. Dark mahogany brown with a frothy beige head. Flavors are bready/roasted cereals, burnt toast, molasses and toffee with fruity and light herbal notes. Light to medium body, moderate carbonation, smooth texture.

MattChiasson (71) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - OCT 25, 2016
Out of the bottle, poured a very deep brown/espresso colour, translucent, with a thin off-white head. I got aromas of roasted malts, molasses, chocolate, coffee, dried fruits (like chocolate covered raisin) and wafer. On the palate, repeats of chocolate (more like sweet milk chocolate) and coffee with a relatively short lager finish. Very enjoyable dark lager. Will definitely try again.
