was hoping it would be a Munich dunkel when I bought it, guess not. 500ml brown bottle.

It pours a cola brown with a foamy head that leaves cobwebs of lacing.

The smell is interesting, it almost has the smell of ovaltine, but with a slap of bread and honey. The hops, like in the other primator brews, were up front and herbal/grassy/medicinal. In this particular brew, they could have done without the hop in the aroma.

The flavor is okay, the hops are overbearing with herbal character, it kind of ruins the already weak taste.

The primator beers are just hopped in the wrong way for me.

Very dark body with a creamy head and a rather smoky nose.

Taste is sweet, very mouth coating and roasty, finishing malty, dry and smoky.

Kind of a rough beer and quite heavy too, although you shouldn't let the cheap looking bottle and the sugar listed in the nutricion facts frighten you off. In the end it's better than one expects.

Clear dark brown colored beer with a medium sized tan colored head.

Smells mostly of grain and chocolate. Good Nobel hop aroma mostly grassy with a little green herb. Faint smell of molasses.

Starts out malty with a graham cracker and chocolate flavor. Slight raisin bran cereal flavor. Moderately bitter aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is OK.

Drinkability is OK.

500 cl brown bottle. Color deep brown, with red spark. Small and unstable cappuccino head. Very modest lace.

Aroma is a mix of candy sugar with well-roasted malts and dry fruit.

Start is a bit prickly, general mouthfeel smooth, on the thin side. Taste sweetish, malty-fruity, with a gentle note of nuts. Finish fruity-acidic. Aftertaste complex: hops, malts and fruit, rather well balanced.

Worth a try, but there are Czech dark lagers much better than this one.

pours a dark brown with a large dirty white head, and great lacing.

smell is of malt, some caramel, and a little sweetness in the back.

taste is smooth, malt, a touch cocoa, some roastiness, and a little caramel, ends a little dry.

overall a nice dark lager.

Firstly my bottle looks abit different to this but its exactly the same beer and it pours a ruby cola hue with nice carbonation that leaves behind a creamy two finger head and a layer of lacing around the sides of glass,i really like the aroma of this its very sweet indeed almost like maple syrup,milo,caramel and lots of honey,the mouthfeel is quite sessionable and just above light but could be thicker and has tastes of sweet toffee,caramel,roasted barley,dark dried fruits and finishes with a buttery,maple syrup smooth finish,overall it definately took me by suprise as i wasnt expecting it to be like this and my only real complaint is its mouthfeel and if you dont like sweet beers you will not like this one but im quite enjoying it and more than likely will revisit.
