Inspired by a 2019 trip to Prague with Bagby Beer and a visit to the historic U Fleků who have been serving drinks since 1499! All you have to do to #LagerHard with this smooth, malty, and delicious Dark Czech Lager is get gothed up and out of the house.

(0.5l pour into a Tubinger mug at the brewery on 15 Sep; preceded by the Slow Pour Pils, which went down too fast... review copied from notes taken on my phone)

Smells like pissed khakis... sort of tastes the same, but moderately malty, with little depth or roast... persistent foam cap... grassy/hay-like... dried flowers or washed linens in the aftertaste with a very slight caramelized toast note

what I can add from memory: the 'pissed' part was dead on to me and it slowly went away as I made my way to the last drop... it did get a heck of a lot more tasty, but it never quite reached the degree of richness, roundness, or depth of some of the other American and import versions of the style I've recently tried/reviewed... really wanted to like this more (2020)

Matte very dark brown body with a huge light brown head, but lacing is limited. An almost creamy nose with focus on dark fruit, dark malts garloe, dark cocoa, dark yeast and a brightening vanilla note. Taste has more of a smoky and earthy thing going for it, but with the same stars. Feel leans malty over yeasty, but closer than expected, smooth and creamy.

Medium brown body, thick two finger offwhite head. Crisp and freshly baked pumpernickel, touch of earthy hop bite, a dab of chocolate and floral. Medium body, good carbonation, refreshing and a nice change of pace from the pale Czech lagers.

From Beer Drop. No dating on the can.

Looks kinda black until I hold my glass up to the light. Dark brown with reddish highlights, clear, long lasting head of foam and good lacing.

The smell is roasted malt, toasted malt, some hop bitterness, smells like, and I am no expert, a beer that came out of the Czech Republic.

Tastes authentic too. Nice roastiness, toasted malt, hint of nut, likeable hop bitterness. Beautiful to look at, a real pleasure to drink. I'm glad that I have 3 more cans!!

Poured into a matching Tmavé 13 mug.

This one pours a very dark brown, nearly black color, with a small creamy looking head, and lots of lacing.

This smells like toasted malt, rye, chocolate, roast, and light spicy hops.

As expected from this brewery, this is really good. It's roasty and toasty, with a nice creamy flavor, and just a hint of hoppy spicy character. It's all super well-balanced, and hits all the notes you want in this style.

This is creamy, rich, and ultimately so drinkable. It's always so impressive when a brewery can pack this much flavor in such a small ABV package.

I really love this this style, and this is a wonderful version of it. It just makes me want to try classic U Fleku even more.
