This is a nice dark beer that pours smooth. It has a good amount of foam initially and then retains just a small line of foam after pouring. Right away I'm liking this beer just based on look and pour. My first taste was the foam because I had to drink off some of it to be able to fit the rest of the can into my glass. That first taste I picked up a large note of caramel in it. After the foam faded however so did the caramel flavor. It has a decent smell to the beer but not a very large bouquet. Its not a real heavy beer and has just a hint of bitterness to it. Overall I'm liking it more and more. I'll probably wait a couple more months for when it gets colder before I get another.

Poured from the bottle into a pokal style glass.

Deep red mahogany with excellent hues. Creamy light khaki top, with some fine pin head bubbles, a little bit of carbonation.

Really nice nose. Hints of hazelnut light roast, a touch of milk chocolate as well. A little bit of thickness too.

Clean light toffee, chocolate rich malted milk flavors on the palette. Slight creamy body. Rich but light. Faint hints of light drip coffee on the aftertaste.

Quite a delicious easy drinking dark lager.

Toasty, malty, and mildly nutty, with just a hint of sweetness in the aftertaste. Very brown and translucent when held to the light; clean. A nice mild flavor profile with a silky smooth backbone. Perhaps a little hint of brown sugar, nuts, and mild chocolate in the nose. Easy to drink many because of the mild 3.8% abv. A perfect creamy head that dissipated to a film around the edge of the glass. Like I said, drink several!

It's much better than the other varieties of Kozel, and it's a shame it's not sold in the US, but after the first one it gets a bit heavy and bland.
