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. Best Before 03/11/20. Poured into a glass stein.
Look: A cola black, lets a little light through giving a reddish tinge where it does, About 2-3 cm of bubbly off white head that subsides to a thin film over the course of a minute.
Smell: A little grainy malt straight up, there is a little bit of roastiness in there too but I'm not getting much else.
Taste: A little roastiness, some yeastiness (soy/vegemite), some dark chocolate (like a fruity dark chocolate).
Feel: Lighter bodied, clean. Not too much bitterness, but a slight dryness at the end.
Overall: Tasty, I enjoyed it, could easily drink a 5-6 of these on a coolish night.

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.
