Vimto appearance with a frothy head. The slight cherry flavour makes the drink a pleasant package. Hardly a dunkel though.

Chestnut color. A bit of Caramel and rasin but in the end......blah.

Well I was expecting utter rubbish but I was actually somewhat surprised. Pours a gorgeous ruby amber clear under a light tan head. Light fruit and faint caramel roast aroma. Delicate smooth roasted fruity sweet start. Then I was waiting for something, bitter would have been nice, but it never arrived. The palate then stayed sweet and everything got even weaker all the way through to the ’unbitter’ end. A pity as it showed a lot of potential.

Red-golden with a medium head. Weak aroma, some sweetness though. Very smooth, slightly sweet malty taste. Sweet finish. Maybe a bit un-balanced.

Bottled, GBBF London. Chestnut/red colour good off white rocky head with lots of condition. Peppery spicy nose with hints of roasted coffee beans. Malty sweet bock like body but more like a Dutch bok. Sweetness remains and dominates finish to its detriment.

From the murky waters of the Baltic comes this unremarkable dark lager. Once again, Baltika beers fail to make an impression on me. What can I possibly say about a forgettable, bland lager such as this.

Aroma and taste have caramel, chocolate, roasted malt, coffee and chichorei. My grandmother used to put Buisman (some kind of mix from sugar and chichorei) in the coffee to boost the flavor. This beer has about the same taste.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 19, 2002
Clear dark amber. Foamy tan head. Steady carbonation. Light toasted caramel aroma, hard water and sugary notes. Medium light body. Mellow, sugary sweet but not overly so. Faintly bitter aftertaste. Thinnish malt flavors but decent. Warming. Easy drinking and maintains its composure throughout. Sweetness is more like molasses than malts. Thickens slightly as it warms. Finishes with an increased bitterness and nutty dryness. Not bad. Beware as outdated samples have zero hop aroma and flavor.

Candyish bubblegum and toffee aroma. Hazy amber-brown, with med thick head. Very sweet candyish flavor. Medium body.
