Pours very dark with a lot of head. Not a lot of carbonation. Smell is weak, but pleasant. Taste is gentle, very rich, little roasty with a slightly carbonated soir aftertaste. A very very good beer.

visionthing (3678) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2015
50cl bottle from Bohemia Deli T2, Prague Airport. Pours dark mahogany coloured with a beige head. Moderate aroma of dark malts with mild notes of chocolate, dark fruits, dark bread and hints of caramel, herbs and metal. Medium sweet with mild roasty flavours and a mild, but fairly balanced bitterness. Quite tasty and easy to drink, but not very memorable.

GIJOE (969) - North Berwick, Maine, USA - AUG 1, 2015
On tap in Moscow's Sheremetyevo Airport, Terminal E. Pours darker than cola with a big, beautiful, creamy head that rises like a Guinness and stays forever. Nose is light grain and malty sweetness. Taste is light, sweet, and odd. Kind of a corn like note. Fairly flat on the palate. Not a big fan, but I wouldn't turn down a free one. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours dark brown with a tan head that starts off big and dissipates into a thin layer. Aroma of caramel, roasted barley and biscuits. Taste is biscuity, sweet with just a hint of bitterness to finish it off. Quite a watery palate. Very drinkable.
