 Beer Description: A dark variant of Czech lager, which was created using four types of malt and Czech varieties of hops. The combination of special-colored malts gives the beer a full caramel flavor with traces of roasted black coffee and prunes. The round malt taste, subtle bitterness and velvety foam will directly invite you to take another drink and bite into something sweet.
