After definitely favorable reactions to the Baltika lager and dark beer, I regret to report that this one totally does not work for me. However, as Meat Loaf once said, two out of three ainít bad.

16.9 oz bottle at Russia House. Probably should have had good Russian vodka instead of this one. Average macro aroma. Only thing working for it is high alcohol content.

Nasty. I bet the communist made junk was better. Stalin Stout or some crap like that. Yuck!

Aroma of honey and corn syrup. Pours clear gold with a decent soapy white head that leaves lacing. Flavor is syrupy sweet, not enough balance, very grainy and sweet. Has a nice alcohol kick, some Russian hooch for your gullet. Itís better than most American macros, at least itís neither a dirty fermentation nor dominated by adjunct grains. Cloyingly sweet, like a corn syrup bomb, donít think I will repeat.

Lacks body, color comes across as a watery blond rather than light straw. Its saving grace though was a honey sweetness that comes through. Not much aroma to speak of.

Surprisingly easy to drink considering its alcohol content, mild sweet taste.

UPDATED: AUG 27, 2007 The beer had a slightly dark yellow color, and a lot of flavor. It gets a thumbs up from me.

Clear, light gold pour w/ little head. Mildly hoppy aroma. Lightly carbonated mouthfeel and mild malty flavor with a tinge of hop bitterness. sweetish finish. A pretty light, mild beer for being labeled "Strong" and 8%.
