Bottle. After trying some other beers from Ukraine this came as a pleasant surprise. Black with a small head and medium body. Slightly chocolate with coffee in the background. Quite complex and very smooth. Excellent.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Flaske på RB samling hjemme (takk til Petro): opp gjennom et beige skum stiger en bæraktig aroma. Fin munnfylde og den bæraktige smaken (solbær/bjørnebær) er så absolutt til stede. Delikat ettersmak med litt ekstra sødme mot slutten. Smaker kanskje mer som en dobbelbock enn en baltisk porter. God uansett.

3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
omhper in Montreal #9 (with MartinT,tiggmtl,Rastacouere,DYCSoccer). Were we rating the receptacle, this would get a "6"...industrial gray plastic screwtop 1L container looks better suited to holding Nuclear waste...light molasses/dark maple color, translucent with little head. Dried figs, chocolate and some odd hints of toasted cocoanut in the strong nose...lightly chocolaty, cookies, light-bodied flavor/palate...dry, slightly chalky finish follows the heavily sweet center. Thanks again for this and so many others, Per!

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Rating #1111: It seems we were all really taken by the bottle but there is a surprisingly good beer in there... Very enticing, malty, meaty (lightly oxidized?), sweet, round aroma with plenty of spicy dark fruit. Opaque, dark brown with ruby tones and tan head that recedes to ring. Sweet nutty marzipan notes with dark fruits and mild roasty bitterness in the finish. Medium-full body with low carbonation and dry finish. Bottle enjoyed with DYCSoccer17, MartinT, muzzlehatch, Omhper and Rastacouere.

1.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle - 500ml. Dark brown body with instant-fading beige bubbly head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with sweet and roasty hints. Taste is quite thin and finish barely detectable. Very disappointing Strong Beer.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark opaque brown colour with frothy pale brown head. Not so rich in aroma but vague tones of rye bread, caramel and licorice. At 6,8% the mouthfeel is medium. Dark flavour in general but not pronounced - we have sweet malt, little toast and tad chocolate. Soft mouthfeel with subtle acidity from the toast malts. Pretty ok beer with no bitterness.

Taste; dark caramel, fruits, cream, nuts, almond, milky chocolate,
leading to a soft liquidish finish.
