Kozel Cerny is a German-style Munich Dunkel brewed by Pivovar Velké Popovice a.s., and for the purposes of this craft beer review, the lager was served in a tumbler from a can.


The lager pours a clear chestnut brown and is topped by nearly an inch-thick cap of cream-colored foam that shows modest retention. Its reduction leaves some lace on the sides and settles into a thin ring of residue.


Its aroma is malty with a scent of toasted bread and dark chocolate.

The palate follows the nose with a taste of toasted bread, nut, and finishes somewhat sweetly with dark chocolate. Bitterness is mild, offering only a hint of floral hops to the background.


Its feel is smooth and on the lighter side of a body that’s nearly medium-light and moderate carbonation.


The Kozel Cerny is a little thin for the style but its clean palate does offer some lovely dark malt flavors. And with such a low ABV, this brew is just so easy to tilt back. So if you’re looking for a sessionable dark beer, this is a fine candidate.
