Default Budweiser Black..?

Tonight we found a pub that had a tap, with a handwritten label saying Budweiser black.

After debating wether to try it, as we disike bud with a passion, we thought why not.

It WAS black, one of the darkest beers ive had, but it was delicious! (From what i remember, we'd been trying a fair few beers beforehand). However, we went back and they didnt have it again!

Basically... is there such a thing as a bud black?? Thats actually tasty? I think it had a chocolatty flavour.. but the different beers were mixing together by that time of the night...

And if so, if someones tried it, any ideas on how to brew a similar beer?

Cheers

Probably someone having fun at Guinness. It's pretty much the Budweiser of stouts, isn't it?

I think they do make A Budweiser Budvar Dark Lager in Europe. Perhaps thats what you had.

google has nothing on Budweiser black, unless you want a black bud hat. verry odd. Go back and tell the owner to pay you off or you will tell bud co.

I'm guessing it was a bar tender's social experiment to test people. You probably could have ordered the (insert oatmeal stout name) that was tap right beside it and it would have tasted the same, But most standard customers would prefer the "Bud Black" because of the brand recognition. This is just a guess. It could actually exist.

I'd say it was this just as brrman said. It can be written Budvar, Budweisser, and a few others. It is Czechvar in the US.

You didn't ask the bartender what it was all about?

Considering there is a (assumed) contract Budvar brewery in London, me thinks you got the Budvarian' Budweisser.
