Formerly known as Modrá Hvězda 14° Tmavé. Unfiltered.

Počátek pivovarnictví v Dobřanech je datován již v roce 1378 udělením privilegia s právem várečným. Původní pivovar se nacházel v Dobřanech v Pivovarské ulici. V roce 1872 byl za řekou Radbuzou vystavěn nový měšťanský pivovar, který zanikl roku 1950. V roce 1998 byla obnovena výroba dobřanského piva otevřením pivovaru MODRÁ HVĚZDA. Spojením původního jména hotel Modrá Hvězda s tradicí výroby dobřanského piva, připomíná název tmavého čtrnáctistupňového speciálu "DOBŘANSKÁ HVĚZDA".

Marko (5718) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUL 5, 2008
Tap at the brewpub during RBESG
Poured a very dark, almost black red colour with a small head that went away fast. A light but nice caramelly nose. The taste is caramel again, very creamy. good maltiness, even if it’s a bit light overall. A solid, quality dunkel that’s very drinkable to boot.

Tap at the brewpub. Alround rating: Quite a sweet roasty beast with hints of fruit. Just not my style.

ekstedt (6790) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JUL 4, 2008
Draught at the brewpub during RBESG08. Dark brown to black with a red edge and medium beige head. Dark chocolate malt aroma with herbal hops. Medium bodied and smooth. Quite dry with low to moderate bitterness.

Fad på brewpubben. Dejlig mørk-sort øl med et beige skum.Mørke bær, rugbrød, maltet, chokolade. Også let kaffe og puddersukker i samgen. Lækker blød og rund.

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 brewpub (Modrá Hvězda, Dobřany, Czech Republic)
The look: Clear dark ruby body with a medium beige 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 a little but a bit more roasted and dry than the average Tmavé. Very good.

TaktikMTL (7798) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 4, 2008
En fût. Pinte dégustée directement à la brasserie. Arôme: Odeur de caramel avec une pointe de café. Apparence: La couleur est noire. Présence d’un moyen col beige mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe de chocolat et de café. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Arrière goût légèrement torréfié. (Rating #1660)

MartinT (9880) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 25, 2008
My Bottom Line:
This cherry-flavored mokaccino of a Tmavé thrives on its sensual body and elaborate malt complexity. Another highly successful Modra Hvezda product.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A thick layer of foam covers the apparently clear ruby-tinged dark brown.
-There are few hops in this one, even in the finish.
-The nose is rather fruity, swaying from cherries to cranberries, from raisins to prunes.
-The body on this one is as hedonistic as their Polotmavé’s.

On tap at the brewpub.

PETka z pivovaru. Very dark, nearly nlack colour, large beige head. Malty nose. Full-bodied, flavours of caramel, chocolate and cocoa powder, also roasted malt. Slightly hoppy, not too sweet overall.

[email protected] Hvezda. Sweetish, soft and roasty. Mild, with some light acidity, medium bitterness, pleasant tmave, very drinkable. I also agree this has a touch of jammy fruit to it. Pretty classy stuff.

motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 3, 2004
amazingly black and thick and rich with an off-white head. aroma of cocoa powder. despite seeming to have very little sweetness, i tasted sultanas, molasses, strawberry jam and a drop of espresso. very full for a czech dark beer, probably the most stout-like one i´ve tried
