(Bottle) Dark reddish brown colour with dense, beige head. Malty nose with notes of caramel, dark bread, roasty malt, chocolate and hints of raisins. Malty, roasty taste with caramel, dark fruit, chocolate, dark bread, raisins and a gentle spicy bitterness in the finish. Medium body, with a touch of sweetness. Quite nice.

Aroma: heavy, raisin, no coffee aromas - rather poor. Very low bitterness, tastes slightly sweet. Full body, heavy (too heavy for me), creamy, low carbonation. For me does not taste like a Czech dark lager, more like a Baltic porter - too heavy and not refreshing at all. Big disappointment. Beergeek23322 (2602) - Chester, Virginia, USA - MAY 24, 2013
May 2011. Bottle. Pours darm amber with a large white head. Aromas of caramel, honey and malt. Flavors of roasted malts and caramel. Not bad at all. Bamaboy1975 (242) - Suffolk, Virginia, USA - MAY 5, 2013
Dark color. Made a three finger head with low retention.
Nice aroma of toasted malts and dark chocolate.
Flavor of toasted malts with coffee and caramel notes. Earthy/hay hops also emerges through its malt, and gets more and more present as it warms up.
Dry aftertaste, a bit oily and buttery.
Medium body and low carbonation.
Good beer, faithful to style and very pleasant to drink. A beer not for drinking a single bottle, once it has a good mix between drinkability and flavor.

Pours a deep copper with small amount of tan head that quickly disappears. A more roasty aroma than most dark lagers. Coffee, caramel, dark chocolate, and something that reminds me of the yoohoo chocolate drink in a bottle. Nothing like elementary school nostalgia while rating beers on the internet. Very grainy taste. Lots of sweet toasted malts that give way to an earthy hop finish. Drinks very light and smooth with a slight hop bitterness left on the tip of the tongue. A unique dark lager.

Found some notes from 2010. Pours deep clear amber with a thick beige head that leaves heavy lacing. The nose is dark caramelized malt, cereal, and just a touch of nuttiness. The flavor is dark cereal malt, a nice dose of caramel, some sweetness, and the same nutty hint from the nose. The body is light with lively carbonation and a medium bitter finish. rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 27, 2013

33 cl bottle @ home. Rated on 14.02.2009omikr0n (927) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 21, 2013
Aroma is slightly sweet and malty with some syrupy notes and hints of herbs. Flavour has bready malt, roasted notes and some chocolate. Slightly harsh finish with coffee and hints of metal. Better than I expected.
Bottle. Pours dark brown with quickly disappearing white head. Aroma is malt, roasty, unpleasant peat and caramel. Flavor is malt, caramel, coffee. Syzzer (647) - Oregon, USA - JAN 12, 2013
This is a pretty good dark lager. Straight forward, similar to schwarzbiers. There is a simple malty roasted overtone. The head is weak, color a dark brown/clear. Mouthfeel is ok. Not bad, not great. 6.4 BD 9.7 Joek
