Fľaša. Tmavo jantárová farba, pena okamžite padla. Vôňa sladká karamelová, medová, toffiffe. V chuti pražené slady, karamel, prázdne telo a prílišná sladkosť.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.5 litre bottle from a local Moscow grocery store. Surprised to see Ukrainian beer on the shelves. Probably just cleaning out inventory. This one pours dark brown with a tan head that disappears pretty quickly. Aroma of caramel, doughyness. Taste of caramel, vanilla. Very smooth. One of my favourite Ukrainian beers so far.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle (500ml). Slightly hazy amber-brown with a small head that disappears in a minute. Aroma of caramel, honey, toffee, light roast. Sweet but not cloying, caramel malts, toasted bread, mild hoppy bitterness in the finish. Rather light bodied, watery texture. Not bad.

Bottle.Pours clear dark ruby copper brown with small off-white head. Clear aroma of malt, caramel and some other sweet stuff, with notes of yeast. Sweet flavour of caramel malt, with bitter, hoppy notes and estery touches. Rough, estery finish with sweet-sourish touches. High carbonation. An OK Dunkel but nothing really special.
