First beer we have cooked here after many years of break. Its origins reach back to Munich from the first half of the 19th century. Our St. Norbert tastes dryer and bitterer than the Munich lager. Whole malt well hopped beer, showing the Munich, caramelized and roasted malt in its taste.

On tap at Strahov monastery brewpub, Prague. Roasty aroma with distinct red fruits, caramel, maybe some licorice and wood. Light, creamy, roasty, malty, develops a woody bitterness and a dry finish. Medium body, soft carbonation. Malty character. Very good.

visionthing (5236) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUN 29, 2015
On tap at the brewpub. Dark mahogany coloured with a beige head. Malty aroma with dark fruits, some roasty notes, dried dark fruits, caramel and herbs. Medium to moderate sweet with nice malty flavours and a balanced bitterness. Smooth, but feels a bit light too, anyway easy to drink and quite tasty.

Bamsen78 (5291) - Sřnderborg, DENMARK - JUN 28, 2015
Draught @ the brewpub. Pours hazy very dark brown with stable, creamy light tan head. Dark aroma of roast, malt, caramel and nuts, with touches of hops. Bitter, roasty flavour, with sweetish malty and estery notes and touches of caramel. Hoppy finish with some sweetish touches. Well-balanced and very enjoyable. A prime example of Tmavý!

Butelka zakupiona w Klasztorze. Po przelaniu pi?kny ciemny kolor. G?sta piana oblepiajaca szk?o. Zapach: karmel, palona kawa. W smaku identycznie. Niestety w budynku w mojej butelce (warka do 14.07.2015) wyczuwalne ?elazo. Generalnie jedno z lepszych piw ze Strahova.

Rounding out the Strahov tasting - I actually passed on trying the IPA and I think one other because I wanted to keep ordering this. Definitely one of the better tmavys in the business. Best of the Strahov set - original and best. Big coffee, hops, and malt - just great strong flavor. A beer with excellent impact. Brought me back to 2010 on my first trip to Prague, when I stumbled upon this place and fell in love. Tasted even better this time!

HerrBierkoenig (1418) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAR 3, 2015
From tap - 0,25l at brewpub. Pours clear dark brown liquid, medium frothy tan to brown head, good stability, Aroma: roasted notes, coffee, malty, dark chocolate, minor smoke notes, very good, Taste: medium sweet, medium bitter, dry, malty, roasty and smoke notes, sausage - meaty, very good, Palate: medium body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, long bitter roasty finish, Overall: very good, nice smooth palate, perhaps only some thing, that disturbs me in the aftertaste - in the aftertaste, the mouthfeel gets bit empty/ flat, but the body, bitterness and caramel are ok. I m not able to describe it more precisely.
