Have you tried Kozel dark beer?
If you like speciality beers, you’ll love Kozel dark beer.
This rich and flavourful beer is a highly drinkable 3.8% ABV, and has won seven ‘Dark Beer of the Year’ awards
When poured, you’ll notice the ruby colour and distinctive dark foam.
When sipped, you’ll taste the caramel sweetness of barley mixed with a hint of bitterness from hops.
Kozel dark beer is brewed in Velke Popovice near Prague, following the recipe that’s been unchanged for decades:
First, the brewmasters draw pure soft spring water from Kozel’s own well in the forest. They add four types of crushed malt – including a dark caramelised malt made from toasted local barley – and boil the liquor to extract the sugars, flavours and colours.
For bitterness, they use the finest quality Saaz hops. They add yeast and wait while the sugars ferment into alcohol and release their natural CO2 for a gentle fizz. Finally, they add whole flower hops to give the beer its fruity flavour, citrus aroma and signature grassy finish.
Using a traditional Czech two-phase process, the lager is transferred into maturation tanks to develop its rich and balanced taste.
See what beer-lovers say:
“THE best dark beer ever. I really like the kind of chocolate/coffee aftertaste.”
“A nice example of a dark Czech beer with some complexity and none of the heaviness of an English porter or stout.”
“Since I tried Kozel, every dark lager I've tried has paled in comparison. It's so deliciously hoppy and refreshing.”
