Tastes like the foil wrap that covers the neck and cap. I don't want to be too much of a naysayer, so I'll use a filler here: blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. I couldn't make it past the third sip. Drink, drank, drunk.... dumped!

A 330ml bottle with a BB of Aug 2013. Acquired recently from a B&M store for a rock-bottom price. The labelling has a classy Czech character....

Poured into a straight pint glass. A dark reddish-brown hue that appears black unless held to the light. Good carbonation. Yields a large head of creamy beige foam that lasts for a while before slowly reducing to a surface layer. Aroma of roasted malt with hints of brown sugar/mild molasses, grain, coffee, subtle chocolate and faint yeast. Slightly sweet, with a metallic twinge lurking in the background.

Tastes of dark malt with a dry, bitter finish. Notes of roasted grain, coffee, molasses, faint chocolate, a hint of liquorice, earthy yeast and stewed hops. Undertones of harsh cardboard and a weak metallic twang. Well attenuated, followed by a restrained bitterness upon swallowing. Mouthfeel is smooth, dry and lightly tingly, with spritzy carbonation and decent body for the style. Mildly astringent, accompanied by an aftertaste of roasted malt, subtle bitterness and faint molasses.

Pretty good - uncomplicated yet it has a satisfying wholesomeness to it. Looks the part, while the aroma and flavour emphasise the roasted malt and faint sweetness that belong to this beer style. Some faint off-notes don't spoil it too much. Decent body. Not mind-blowing but very drinkable. At the price I paid for it I could see myself grabbing some more - worth sampling if you come across it.

Krusovice Cerna has a very thick, foamy, beige head, a good amount of lacing left behind, and a clear, yet dark, ruby-brown appearance. The aroma is of dark-roasted malt, brown bread crust, sweetness, and even coffee. Taste is of the same, with just a touch of hop bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Krusovice Cerna finishes crisp, refreshing, and highly drinkable. Overall, this is a delicious and tasty beer.

look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.5

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Looks like a stout, superior dark brownish black with a thin body. Head is a very light tan that rose to maybe 1/2" off the body.

Smell: Light malty sugars, almost bock like but it is then again light.

Taste: Molasses come off light, little sweet but still lightly bitter. Honestly it feels like the only thing missing is dessert.

Mouth: Medium carbonation, lightly sweet after-taste.

Overall: Good beer but not exactly great. I have had Schwarzbiers before and didn't even know this was one till I started taking my first sip. Not a hard beer to drink and pretty easy to like, grab a glass...Salud!
