wedgie9 (2701) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - APR 4, 2013
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.

nephirem (450) - CROATIA - JAN 29, 2017
Bottle, 0.33l. Sampled as Žatec Dark. Deep ruby pour with minimal white head, vanishing instantly. No lacing whatsoever. Smell of iron and toffee with herbal touch to it. Caramel takes over as it clears up. Thin to medium body. Carbonation is average but prickly on the tongue. A bit watery texture. Bittersweet. Aroma is grainy and malty, a bit of caramel, slightly herbal. Faint corn. Somewhat peppery, slight metal in the aftertaste. Not complex, quite simple but executed fairly well. Finish is a bit dry and slightly bitter. Overall, ok. Drinkable, yes, but quite an unimaginative effort.

Bottle Tried as Zatec Dark Lager. Black and quite lively upon opening. Smooth malty flavour with liquorice in background. Well balanced and definitely worth trying

330ml bottle kindly shared by Per Pippin. A bubbly fawn-coloured head over a clear dark ruby coloured body. Scattered lacing. Roasted bread on the nose, semi-sweet. Taste of brown malts, moderately roasted. Backdrop of herbal hops, mid-sweet. Medium bodied. Quite alright (Shared with friends at Prestvika, Sommarřya 02.09.2016).
