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.

(Bottle BB 07/06/08) Roasted malty and caramel aroma. Dark red brown colour and large, light brownish head with fair/good lacing. Roasted malty, caramel and coffee flavour with a hint of licorice. Lively carbonated, chalky and medium-bodied palate. Tasty, well-balanced brew! 09/08/07

500 ml bottle from lcbo. Quiet pour with good carbonation and and an aroma of roasted malt and hints of coffee. The colour is dark auburn with a craggy tan head and good lace. The beer has a smooth roasted malt start with coffee notes expanding into the middle. Good length to the finish with notes of bread and a touch of molasses sweetness. A good dark lager!

Leicht phenoles Näschen, ein nett angesweeteter Samttrunk und viel Charakter, zumindest für ein Industriebier, sind eine echte Überraschung.A Gift from Enti...👄

MrMati (92) - Trzebnica, POLAND - JAN 1, 2017
Dense, beige head and coke like, clear colour. Some diacetyl, caramel and coffee in aroma. In taste there’s coffee, caramel and hint of herbs. A little sour finish. Not much bitterness. Body is full, carbonation rather low. If you want to know how Dark Czech Lager should taste like, definitely try this one. It’s decent dark beer.

TET (2791) - Kaarina, FINLAND - DEC 30, 2016
A colablack beer, a head is quite big and beige. Aroma has sweetness of syrup, also balancing roastiness. Taste has maltyness, some roastiness, luckily only decent sweetness. Almost medium bodied, quite smooth. Quite balanced and not too sweet beer.

Canmoore (437) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 29, 2016
Pours a dark ruby red, nearly opache with a bubbly beige head. Aroma has notes of grains, toffee, and coffee. Tasting notes include lively malts, burnt grains, coffee, and sightly astringent finish. Not bad.

From notes. Enjoyed at Brot & Spiele at dinner with Gary. 500 mL bottle. The pour is a darker brown color with a hefty bit of ruby shining through. There is a thin light tan head that fades quickly, leaving a few spots of lace. The aroma is full of roasty malts right up front. This is nothing like I was expecting. There is a light licorice and a very bready presence. Surprising. The flavor is much of the same. It’s roasty and crisp with a nice bready character to it. There is a hint of licorice, but this all just fades off so quickly. The mouth feel is really watery and light with a decent carbonation and a lingeringly sweet and roasty finish. I like it. A lot more than I thought I would.

bottle. Poured dark, reddish-brown with a creamy tan head. Roasted malt aroma. Medium body, pricky carbonation, a bit oily. Typical roasty malt flavour, notes of coffee, smoke, dark fruit, treacle. Slight astringent finish.

AleRider78 (830) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 18, 2016
Pours a nice 2 finger thick frothy tan head and has a fairly dark amber appearance with ruby highlights. Lively carbonation. Aromas of roasted malts, hints of coffee and very faint resin hints. Flavours are mostly the same as aromas, lots roasted malt notes, some sweet malts, notes of raisins of other similar dry fruits. Fairly smooth and slick sensation on the palate. Big bubbly mouthfeel, somewhat fizzy as well. Very good.

Olorin (20) - Graz, AUSTRIA - DEC 17, 2016
500 ml bottle. Dark reddish brown colour, small head mostly lasting, little lacing, soft carbonation. Nose is roasted malt, coffee, some liquorice. Flavour is less sweet than expected, nicely balanced bitterness, a bit watery. Leaves a smokey aroma in the aftertaste. An OK beer, nothing special.

500ml bottle from LCBO. Pours an opaque deep brown colour with one finger of lasting head. Lacing clinging to the side of the glass. Aromas of roasted malts and bread. Taste matches the aroma with espresso finish. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation.
