on tap at the brewery on my 2011 birthday. one of the best things about so many new czech breweries opening has been the return of the tmavy. for a while a few years back it was hard to find anything dark that wasn’t kozel. anyways, this is pretty close to black with a steady beige head; aroma of prune juice and cocoa powder; soft texture; hints of sour cream, some tinny bitterness; quite drinkable MoritzF (9901) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2011
(100cl plastic bottle with thanks to Quack-Duck) Slightly hazy, dark brown colour with a short and slightly tanned foamy head. Mildly toasty malty aroma with notes of caramel, chocolate and a delicately nutty touch. Moderately sweet and toasty bitter flavour, light to medium bodied with a calm carbonation. Dry toast-malt-character with nutty notes and a touch of chocolate; bitter-sweet caramely finish. Pretty good, not too sweet Dunkel from Bohemia. 09.XI.11 pivnizub (10614) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 8, 2011
Lahev (gšeft s Quack-Duckem!): Almost clear, ruby-amber coloured, small off-white head, relatively rich nose: dark malt, toasted malt, nuts and freshly ground coffee; more dry than sweet flavour, malt bitterness mainly, soft, light to medium bodied; walnutty traces in the soft and dry bitter-malty finish, balanced by some caramel. Very tasty beer from this Böhmerwaldbrauerei… Quack-Duck (9484) - Down South, GERMANY - NOV 6, 2011
