On tap and in the bottle on many occasions. Another decent Czech beer from a mega-brewery. Nice brown colour, sweet smell. Sweet taste and some caramel. Pleasant after-taste. Another totally unspectacular, available everywhere, Czech beer. Arve_Christian (5225) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 15, 2012

Brown colour, medium, lasting head. Slight notes of roasted caramel, not too sweet, well balanced overall. Smooth end. Saurononline (136) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAY 30, 2012
Really light one, good taste for the little amount of alcohol in it. I recommend it!

Bottle, from an ethnic food store in Scunthorpe. Deep red brown, thin shortlived off white head and moderate condition. Initial berry fruitiness in the nose soon gives way to a sweet caramel note, a slight peppery spiciness and a faint phenolic smokiness. Quite thin in the mouth with a powdery chocolate note giving way quickly to fruty berries and a gentle buttery sweetness laced with burnt toffee, dry in the finish with some burnt maltiness but ultimately quite thin.

500mL bottle. Great aroma, solid pour...dark head looks delicious. The taste is awesome, one of the best dunkels I’ve ever had. Mouthfeel is great, the body is light & just right for the style. Really enjoyed this dunkel. mikkellund42 (922) - DENMARK - MAY 11, 2012
Can. Pours dark brown with medium brown non-lasting head. Aroma is malt syrup and caramel. Taste is medium sweet. Body is watery with soft carbonation. Finish is short, sweet and metallic. BlackHaddock (7956) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 30, 2012
Bought in Prague early 2009, but is it brewed in Russia now? This brown 500ml bottle had 5 days left on its ’Best before date’ when I reviewed it on a cold, wet and dark night in September 09.
Poured (twice) into a Westmalle chalice; looked good, dark, almost black body with a good, well formed tanned head. When held up to the light you could see it was clear and a deep reddy brown colour really.
The smells sent mixed messages to my brain, sweet yet bitter dark chocolate and liquorice esters vied for my attention.
The taste had no liquorice, and the bitterness of the dark chocolate also failed to turn up in the flavours, just the sweetness of the aforementioned dark chocolate was evident.
Lacks body and substance in its bottle form, drank from a tap in Prague I thought it sweet, but it had more depth of body and character. Disappointed with the wishy-washy bottled version and it is my last beer from prague that I obtained to review, wish I’d kept something else back now.
