Sticke -- First Impressions
It is alcoholic (6.9%) and malty -- so much that it covers any hop flavor and much of the bitterness. Very drinkable -- before we realized it we had drunk 4 each.
So we decided to take a break and ended up walking by the Pilsner Urquell Brauerei Ausshank and I noticed they had U Fleku back on the menu. So we went in and discovered they also had another dark Czech beer -- Kozel Černý from Velkopopovický (Which is owned by Pilsner Urquell). The U Fleku was as good as I remembered, but the Kozel didn't have a lot of flavor and had that aftertaste I associate with color beer (e.g. SINAMAR from Weyermann), They also had ads for Budvar Dark but didn't actually carry it.
