3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Odd yeast smells when the bottle was opened. Nice red foil deco. Pours looking nice, with large foam head over brown ale.
Sweet nose of malts. Flavor is better than average, esp for the style. Very minimal hop bite, noticable only in the finish. While the palate is a little "off", this was still enjoyable. Pint .9 @ $2.50

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear ruby-red, beige head. Too much burnt sugar in the nose, along with a little dark malts and some sweet and spicy dark bread. The taste starts sweet, but soon is getting dryer and spicier, even a little salty. Light spicy and hoppy bitterness in the after-taste. Quite a decent dunkel, just a bit too hard on brown sugars.

Clear amber color with tiny beige head. Aroma of caramel. Taste is medium sweet, flauvour of caramel and coffee. A bit sticky mouthfeel, but quite nice dunkel anyway.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle from Mini Mix, Barcelona (€1.05):
This one was an okay offering from the Baltika brewery without being the best from them that I’ve tried thus far. There was a nice sweetness to proceedings & I quite enjoyed the sticky patches that showed with the beer thanks to the caramel malts & sugars. Overall the balance was good & it was definitely an enjoyable beer but it just didn’t seem to grab me.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Vermelha escura, quase marrom, límpida. Espuma bege, fina, média de média duração. Ameixas, caramelo e mel no nariz. Na boca, ainda, madeira, malte torrado e um pouco e defumado. Sabor adocicado com um pouco de torrado levando a uma leve acidez. Sensação ácida na língua devido à fina carbonatação. Corpo médio.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
From a bottle bought in Los Angeles. Poured in a North Coast chalice...pours light brown with head and lace. Aroma of light malts, caramel, minerals, industrial cleaner. Medium carbonation and mouthfeel. Flavors of brown malts, caramel malt, carob, grains, minerals, straw hops, hay, slight peat. Overall fairly rich with a modest malt body, yet some unpleasant and bitter components.

oured from a 16.9 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance is a dark brown with some reddish highlights. The pour creates a small white head. The aroma is wheat, caramel malt and fruit. The taste is a perfect match for the aroma. A good beer.
