500ml can 3.8%. nice mellow toast on first sip. NO aftertaste with a slight exception of a toased malt. Much more body that a usual fake example of a Schwatrzbier. Very nice drinkable brew even from a can after sitting in a suitcase for 20 hours.

midovark (435) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - JUL 16, 2016
0.5 l can. Pours black with long lasting beige head that remains for long. Fruits, malts and some coffee in aroma. Earth, malts, coffee and some strange notes in taste. Short finish, watery texture, soft carbonation. That weird taste that I cant identify ruins it all for me. Not good.

Can shared by Dan tonight, thanks! Dark brown with a smallish off white head. Caramel and light chocolate notes against some bready earthy hops. Not horrible.

77ships (7432) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAY 31, 2016
(Kiev 2016) Sampled draft @ one of Pivnaya №1 establishments. Dark brown blackish, little mocha bubbles. Nose is iron, herbal, rotting licorice & moldy. Taste is dull iron, herbal, rotting leaves, spoiled rotting herbal, and metallic. Overly industrial, not good, I suspect the keg also not being in the best shape.

Grumbo (1196) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2016
Bottle, UK import, unrecalled source, historic rating. Poured dark brown with a light tan head. Aroma of roast malt, with hint of chocolate. Moderate to heavy sweetness, light bitterness. Light body, rather watery texture, soft carbonation. Has a dry finish. It’s ok but not great.
