Dark, almost opaque ruby to black, lace. Creamy coffee head. Sweet roasted aroma with some bite thrown in. Typical dunkel roasted coffee-like palate. Medium-bodied. Thin finish, but very drinkable.
Light nose, dark but clear deep brown, frothy tan head. Late arriving chocolate malt with little hop, but some coffee bitter. Improves as the glass warms (was served too cold) Thin and straightforward profile. Pretty good session beer. KyotoLefty (10689) - Kyoto, JAPAN - JUN 27, 2010
Draught at Dacicky in Kutna Hora, 2006. Full of rich malt taste. It’s not really sweet, just a touch of sweetness, just the way I like it. It’s not overpowering at all. Has a dry, roasted taste, moving towards a Porter. But it is still relatively light, and very good with goat cheese. Love it. YogiBeera (2569) - New Jersey, USA - AUG 8, 2004
Licorice malt nose and taste. Dark brown color, light fast diminishing taste -nice.

Dark brown beer with a thick tan coloured head. Very malty, brown sugar and molasses taste. Full-bodied and slightly sweet. Finishes fairly clean with a hint of perfumey hops and caramel flavour. Simpley than many of the dunkel I’ve been drinking in the Czech Republic, but still very good. gmonroe10 (243) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 7, 2008
Draught in Kutna Hora. Pours a dark brown, clear. Head is small white/brown and fluffy, quickly leaving. Nose is sweet malts- molasses and caramel as well. Flavor is sweet and hoppy, not too much bitterness on the quick finish. jutuahol (190) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - APR 10, 2004

Dark color with notes of amber, medium off-white head that vanishes quickly. Typical Czech dunkel flavor and aroma - roasted, coffee-like and a bit caramel-like sweetness. Smooth palate, medium body. Not the best Czech dunkel but decent overall.
Amber color, offwhite head. Hoppy soapy, quite discreet aroma. Malty flavor mixed with a pleasant hoppy bitterness. Some burnt sugar and a hoppy finish. MiP (15973) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 9, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2007 Draught at BBF06. Clear chestnut colour. Stable light brown head. Roasted flavour, a bit sweet. High carbonation. The bitterness is a little high for a Tmave. 6 3 6 3 12
Draught at BBF07 as Dačický Dunkel. Very dark brown colour. Small bubbly light brown head. The flavour is nicely sweet with a hint of brown sugar. Not very roasted. The aftertaste has a little metal, but it seems to disappear after a little while. Well-balanced. 6 3 6 3 14
