Notes: Velkopopovický Kozel Dark beer is brewed to the original recipe using a special mix of dark malts, clean water from our own well close to the brewery, and a selection of the best hops. The caramelized malt gives this beer a unique ruby color and sweet flavor, thanks to which it is appreciated and respected all over the world.

(500 ml bottle). Moderate head, dark reddish brown colour. A very flavourful dunkel despite the low ABV - malty, rounded caramelly sweetness, low bitterness. Not bad - would like to try it on tap.

Rerate draught in Prague, compared to Krusovice Cerne: Sweeter than KC, smaller head, more carbonation, less hops, less roastiness, lighter body. Overall 13/20.

Pours a clear, deep mahogany coloration with a medium, creamy head. Smells of bready, caramel malt with a hint of licorice. Taste follows the nose, being dominated by bready, slightly caramelly and lightly roasted malt with hints of smokiness and licorice. There's also a very light grassy/herbal note to this. Finishes with a medium bitterness and some roasted/smokey notes lingering in the aftertaste. Smooth mouthfeel with a medium body and carbonation.

Pretty nice Dark Lager with a good malt profile that subtly leans towards roasted/smokey notes and very light grassy/herbal hops for balance.
