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 ekstedt (6708) - 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. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 8, 2008
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.kappldav123 (6097) - GERMANY - JAN 18, 2010
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.
Bottled, name says tmavy special. Looks good. Beer in the glass very dark, almost black. Small head. Fruity aroma like a good red wine. Tastes malty-strong, modest fruity like berries, hints of caramell and liquorice. Very drinkable and good beer!

Tap at the brewpub during RBESGDonMagi (5593) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUL 5, 2008
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. duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 5, 2004

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.
Draught at the brewpub.
The best beer from this brewery. Dark brown colour with creamy head. Powdery chocolate in aroma, along with caramel and dark berries. Semi-sweet with pleasant rounded mouthfeel and good balance from the variation of malts, and accurate hopping. Bit of sweetish coffee here. Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 6, 2008
(Draught) Pours near black with red hints. The aroma is of dark caramel, dark fruits, dark berries - mostly blackberries, liquorice and dark bread. The flavour is of caramel, light chocolate, dark berries, dark syrup and brown sugar. The mouthfeel is light syrupy, yet clean and soft. Some hop dryness in the finish. Medium bodied.
