Pours a crystal clear, medium brown; the color of strong pekoe tea. Sweet smells of warm pumpernickel, waffles. Taste is toasty with definite notes of rye/pumpernickel. Sweet caramel and toffee on the swallow. Medium body. Smell of rye malt really picks up as it warms a bit. This is an awesome beer! Definitely a euro-style dark lager and was not intended to be a Munich Dunkel. Style categories at this site are in serious need of correction/expansion.

Pours dark copper with little head. Has a kind of dark taste with syrup, some sweetness. Toasty malt, maybe a little too sweet for my tastes, but ok.

"a smooth, pretty tasty, kind of unassuming beer. not as good as their porter (6) but good enough to enjoy. a little lighter, and a little sweeter...

PsychoGunnar (200) - Bergen, NORWAY - OCT 12, 2014
Smells like artifical additive chemicals, alcohol and soy. Dark brown with pretty foam, a lot of malt and a lot of artificial tastes.

tania_nexust (196) - Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2014
Bottle from local Eastern European shop. Pours a rich red-amber, looks like it will have malty/Dortmunder flavours. However aroma and flavours are a little thin, not much going on. Was hoping for more maltiness & body.

djoeye (1572) - Tromsø, NORWAY - SEP 25, 2014
Deep off-white towards tart-creamy white head. Ruby-copper-brown fine coloured body, clear. Aroma; fruity caramel malts, candied fruits, raisin, leaves, earth, dusty hops. Taste; prunes’ style caramel malts, syrupy bread, raisin, sweet dough. Lively carbonation. Sweet finish with prunes in front. Very sweet dark beer. I’d wish Vladimir were sweet as this... [50cl brown embossed special bottle, abv5.6%, BB18.01.15]

Dermi (636) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 11, 2014
50 cl, bottled. Pours bubbling, clear red with a nice creamy wheat head. Aroma: Caramel, roasted malt, sugar. Taste: Noticeable sweetness, balanced bitterness. Malty flavours, some caramel. Sweet, yet quite balanced. Syrupy notes. Body: Light-medium body, some carbonation. Malty aftertaste. Not bad but probably won’t be buying again anytime soon.

luttonm (2272) - Belgrade, SERBIA - SEP 8, 2014
.5l bottle in Belgrade. Reddish brown with off white head. Amber caramel malt aroma, medium sweet and banana bread body. Cloyingly sweet, but decent darker lager in a way.
