pivnizub (10910) - Bochum, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2006
Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, creamy tanned head, slowly diminishing to a small stable foamy layer; sweet-malty, toasted-malty nose; sweet-caramelly flavour, light bodied, soft MF; toasted, caramelly finish with a small chocolatey bitterness in the end. Hearty, easily drinkable Dunkel, a bit on the sweet side....

KyotoLefty (10810) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 21, 2010
Very dark brown, but not quite black. A tall, creamy white head. Aroma of burnt malt. Slight caramel and coffee. A touch of hops and raisins (apples?). Aroma stronger than usual. Sweetish flavor, lots of caramel, not as much roasted flavor as is in the nose. Slight burnt aftertaste, still sweet, a bit of hop dryness, but not much. Not roasted enough. Not enough hops really. A nice tasting beer, to be sure, but on the sweet end of the style. A little more like a German dunkel than is usual for a Czech dark.

tderoeck (10639) - Gent, BELGIUM - MAY 2, 2010
Tasted on different trips to Czech Republic. Pours a dark rubyred to brown peer. Very fine laced beige head. Smells sweet-malty. Full body when drinking, alcoholsweetness with some caramel. Ends in not too subtle roasted malts while the tongue is still tangling with carbon. Only a sweet aftertasts survives. A good basic beer for a night in the pub, although a little too sweet to my taste.

jmgreenuk (10378) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 24, 2014
Tap at the Staromestska Restaurant, Old Town Square, Prague. Poured a clear dark brown with a big frothy light tan head. The aroma is sweet malt and caramel. The flavour is medium to light sweet with a sweet watery malt light yeast palate. Light bodied with average carbonation. Not a lot going on but not so bad either.

3.2
deanso (10287) - Chiang Mai, THAILAND - DEC 5, 2010
50cl bottle from an Albert supermarket, Prague, only 50c. Nice dark beer, plenty of flavour despite it being only 3.8%

2.9
Maria (10211) - Thisted, DENMARK - FEB 1, 2008
Dark and malty and the flavour is sweet, but not cloying, and it has notes of caramel. It’s easy to drink but it could have more depth. (Early rating, and too short)
