A dark lager with an exceptionally fine taste which is talked about with recognition and admiration. Staropramen Dark is exceptional for its calming, full-bodied, sweetish caramel taste with gentle, hopsy bitterness. It is a taste you will never forget.

Okay soft aroma of barley. Has decent head and an okay darker burgundy body. Flavour is soft barley notes with hints of coffee. Just okay, not exciting, nor complex.

MarkoNm (2518) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - AUG 19, 2015
Pours a coppery brown color, topped with a medium to small tan colored head. Caramel malty aroma, some bready notes, a slight soury feel. Taste is sweet, malty with caramel presence. Bready. Mild bitterness in the finish, slightly soury as well. Pretty decent one. Easily drinkable, light, but enough taste.

A light dark beer which wont blow your head off (4.4.% vol) If you are an aficionado of Bok or Hungarian Bak beers this may be a little to light for you. But a good beer nonetheless and very drinkable, not too sweet, good malty, slightly nutty taste. Only 199Ft or Ł0.45 per half liter bottle at Auchan in Budapest... Good choice to give to friends.

Bottle 0,5l from common Czech market. Reddish clear body, small white head. Aroma of nuts and dark malts, dark fruits, very low intensity. Terrible watery taste of sweetish nothing with notes of dark malts, bit roasted. (It’s like the second flush out of facility where was a good dark beer.) Light, but drinkable body, medium carbonation.
Bad. Maybe the worst Dunkel I’ve ever had (but I can imagine worse...). This one is refreshing in summer days, if nothing else...

Rotin (1143) - Neratovice, CZECH REPUBLIC - JUL 4, 2015
Bottle 0,5l. Clear, brown colored beer. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel, roasted malt, slight tones of cherries, plum jam. A bit sweet flavor, some roasted tones, caramel, almost no bitterness. Light bodied, slightly watery.
Not tasty beer, disappointing.

Cristobal37 (870) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 25, 2015
A nice medium bodied dark czech lager. Chocolatey sweet malts are the highlight for me. Very drinkable and low abv. A nice example of the style.

jaghana (5700) - Strasbourg (Alsace), FRANCE - JUN 24, 2015
Bottle 50cl, a brown beer with off white head. Nose is on toasted cereals. Aroma is on caramel, biscuits, metallic, berries, bottom yeast, brown biscuit, almost no hops, correct for the alcohol level even if not outstanding.

Derek881 (1260) - Denver, Colorado, USA - MAY 27, 2015
Had a pint of this beer on tap in Prague. The beer had a brown-dark amber color with a huge, foamy-creamy tan head with excellent retention, and good cling and lacing. The aroma had an earthy, herbal, and grainy hops blend along with very light touches of caramel and toffee. It was slightly sweet and malty with a slight toffee taste but blended with a somewhat bitter herbal and earthy blend. The body was wetter and a touch creamy with a smooth finish and mouthfeel with low carbonation.

KoNrRiI (1314) - Ĺrhus, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2015
0.33 bottle. Clear, brown color and a small, tanned head. Strong aroma of dark malts, sour dough, and delicate sugarcane. Taste is somewhat sweet, again dark malts, hints of cocoa. Light to medium body, subtly creamy texture, and average carbonation. Finish is delicate, doughy, not very long. Overall a mediocre beer.

KoRoBeNiKi (147) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - MAY 21, 2015
Bottle from a Russian restaurant that oddly serves Staropramen. though it was listed under "Staropramen Dark" Aroma: Light dark malts, a little sweetness and bitterness detected Appearance: Dark with a little red Taste: A little bit of smoke with some sweetness and bitterness Palate: Refreshing, easy to drink, some bitterness, light. Not super good but for the APV, there is much worse to choose.
