Bottled "Dark Lager" (BB 10/2010)chrisv10 (17275) - DENMARK - OCT 18, 2012
Dark brown color, small beige head. Chocolate, cardboard, dominantly roasted rye-bread/malts in the nose. Medium-bodied - quite good body actually for 11 plato Czech lager. Caramelly, chocolaty, mild roasted malty flavor. Light hoppyness behind the sweet aftertaste, some licorice too. Balanced, ok Czech dunkel.
Tap @ C4 as "Ferdinand Dark". Dark brown/red with small tan head. Aroma is malt, chocolate, caramel and a little nutty. Flavour is malt, chocolate, caramel, little nutty, hop and medium sweet. Oakes (17274) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 19, 2011
Dark brown with caramel head. Light caramel and toast notes, maybe a hint of butter. Fairly soft, with some light milk chocolate. Basically an easy-going sweetish dark beer, but in a good way. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - NOV 29, 2007

UPDATED: JUN 19, 2010 500ml bottle (K CM, Kamppi)MiP (15650) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 2, 2005
Deep red, brief spongy beige head. Rich grainy aroma, sweet. Really grainy in fact, some huskiness. But also really sweet. Smooth, sweet body, rich roasty and sugary retronasals, carbonation soft. Residual sugars not only high, but I notice there’s saccharin in the ingredients, which I have to penalise them for. Tasty roast, but just too sweet. Drinkable, but leaves me thirstier due to the stickiness! (6:4:6:4:10=3.0)
Rerate: 500ml bottle (K CM, Kamppi)
5+ simple sweet dark lager aroma, tough of roast.
