(copied from blog - written January 12, 2013)

Appearance – Pours solid black with a half finger white head.
Smell – Smells strongly of roasted malts and chocolate.
Taste – Similar to the smell, chocolate and caramel sweetness up front with a finalizing burnt/roasted malt flavor that lingers.

Černé Pivo is Czech for “Black Beer.” If you didn’t peep the label and no one told you, you’d never be able to tell that this is a session beer weighing in at only 4%. A first gulp reveals a pleasantly carbonated, sweet yet roasted, light bodied smooth beer. Since it is a session beer, it is very easy to put down but the full flavor of the beer makes it seem more practical to sip slowly and enjoy.

12 oz. bottle served in a...not sure what this is. Footed pilsner glass? Sounds right.

A: Pours a deep, opaque jet black, with only the slightest hint of crimson near the narrow foot of the glass. A tight, one-finger tan head forms and recedes slowly towards the walls of the glass, leaving a ring with fine bubbles and very impressive lacing.

S: Roasted malt and dark cocoa fill the nose, with an ever-so-slight floral note. Very clean, quite mild.

T: Sweet chocolate and caramel up front, almost reminiscent of a tootsie roll. The flavor shifts in the middle to nicely roasted malt with flavors of bitter cocoa and mild coffee. Finishes clean with a soft noble hop bitterness. Filled with flavor, but not overly complex. I think refined is the word I'm looking for, although that sounds like an awfully pretentious word to use to describe a beer!

M&D: Medium-full bodied with only the slightest chew and a low alcohol that doesn't bite at all. Carbonation is light enough to not sting the tongue and distract from the flavor, but present enough to provide a little levity and to contribute to a nice dry finish. If I could find this on tap, this would be a regular for me. I could drink this all night!

Absolutely fantastic. I would absolutely make this a mainstay, provided I could get it on tap regularly or in sixers/twelve packs. The flavor is bold but its contituents are all well balanced and below the cloying threshold. Remarkably similar to some of my favorite schwarzbiers. Highly recommended!
