Nexxus (261) - Apple Valley, Minnesota, USA - NOV 20, 2003
Very dark brown with a huge tan head. Aroma presents malt and roast notes with a hint of dark fruit. Medium-thick creamy palate with little carbonation. Flavor is mostly malt and roast with hints of molasses, cherry and raisin.

Pours black, with a small off-white head. Not a bad porter, though it does has that "strained through cardboard" aftertaste endemic to many Russian beers. Definitely has a strong kick to it. I can imagine myself drinking this at a kiosk on Nevsky Prospekt.

spporras (259) - FINLAND - MAY 15, 2006
(Bottle BB 21/12/06) Roasted malty, slightly licorice and very slightly alcoholic aroma. Very dark red colour. Large, light brown, slowly diminishing head with fair lacing. Burned malty, average bitter, licorice and slightly coffee flavour. Medium to full-bodied and softly carbonated palate. An excellent porter! 14/05/06

Mainuh_man (259) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2014
0.5L bottle. Pours black with a big, tan head. Aromas are fairly mild: bread, cereal grain and chocolat.e. Flavor is fairly sweet, with lots of chocolate and some roasted malt coming through. Finishes with some roasted malt bitterness, but sweetness remains. Medium-full body with a slick mouthfeel and mild carbonation. Overall, some nice malt character, but fairly unidimensional flavorwise.

steelhead3686 (258) - Athens, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2011
Pours a dark, dark brown with a think carmel head. A slight toffee and fruit aroma but nothing like a great porter. Sweet taste with a hint of bitterness. Medium on the sweet and very light on the bitter. Light body with a slight creaminess. This is a fine porter but it lacks the body, aroma, and palate I expect out of a great porter. However, I really can’t complain with a $1.99 price tag for 1 pint 9oz bottle. A must buy.

vidmidia (256) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - FEB 7, 2016
Escura, opaca. Espuma bege média de média duração. Aroma levemente ácido de malte tostado, defumado, chocolate e caramelo. Sabor adocicado equilibrado com notas de café, chocolate, caramelo e um pouco do álcool. Retrogosto ácido com final amargo.

greig (253) - Hamilton, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 9, 2008
Nice - a bit like an imperial stout-lite - some of the same burnt toffee, raisin, and warming alcohol characteristics. A little thin bodied though, and the head pretty much just vanished. Not a bad effort at all, I’d drink this again.

BrewingFan (251) - Texas, USA - APR 7, 2010
Chocolate sweet aroma, pours black with a bubbly off-white head. Very heavy in sweetness, balanced by a bit of hop bitterness. Very clean, leaves a touch of hops and burnt malt in the finish. Overall it is good, very nice with the strong sweetness powering through.

lukedarock (246) - Howell, Michigan, USA - JAN 17, 2014
Decent coffee like aroma with a nice head that doesn’t go anywhere, taste isnt bad but there is a metallic like note, and that helps this go down smooth, a tasty different porter.

In tallahassee you can buy this stuff extremly cheap so i never thought much of it. finally i decided to give it a try and found it a nice surprise. defiantly the best alcohol at its prive tier. anyway warm malt some roast produces a sweet thick taste on the tongue. some chocolate, does well to make this beer taste non alcoholic.
