Pours black, a few shades of ruby into the light. Rich two finger tan head, that doesn't pop away too fast.
Smells earthy, with dark malts, dusty coffee and cocoa powder, bit of caramel and some spices.
Taste has a Czech lager zingy characteristic, enriched with nice dark malts (roasted grains, dark bread crust), faint dark chocolate and light coffee. Spicy feel, very faint nuts, some grass. Earthy hops in the finish, mild bitterness. Nice dry aftertaste, clean, with just a hint of roasted malt.
Light body, medium carbonation, a tiny bit oily.
Not the most flavorful, but a nice Czech dark that's very easy to drink.

500ml Bottle from a Prague Mini-Market (35CZK):
Dark ruby to black & a thumb-sized, foamy, tan head that settles about 1cm tall with nice lacing.

Dark roasted malts & light, earthy notes with touches of caramel. Some sweetness comes through but nothing too strong, with some milk chocolate and faint coffee notes with roasted grains too.

Earthy malts and dark, roasted flavours that also features some grain & a combination of light chocolate & coffee. A milk chocolate taste towards the middle & touches of hops and light spice, with some caramel sweetness to compliment the malts rounding at the end.

Light medium bodied with a slightly dry taste and a faint tang on the tongue as well. Well carbonated and quite easy to drink with a nice, well-balanced finish.

Drinkable & fairly enjoyable in a average sort of way, probably because of how easy it was to drink. Not the best Czech dark beer but a nice offering with a decent alcohol content & a well-balanced taste.
