Travlr (24262) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - SEP 3, 2012
Draft at one of my locals, Churchkey, in Washington DC! Whoa! Murky dark brown color, tan head, solid lacing. Aroma of chocolate biscuit and a bit of pepper. Taste starts sweep and syrupy, then only a bit of bitterness to balance. OK.

0.33l bottle. Brown color with disappearing head. Aroma is caramel, toasted malt, burnt sugar, dark fruits and light chocolate character with some soapy notes. Taste is toasted malt and fruity with some bitterness. Overall it’s nice dark lager.

nephirem (497) - 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
