1.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
A semi-sweet grassy malt aroma. By far the best part of the beer and actually quite nice. Has a nice color but the head dissipates rapidly. The first bit to hit the tongue is the only bit that is drinkable. Afterwards, the sweetness comes, then the alcohol, then just a general nasty nasty finish. Kills the rest of the beer really.

1.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
16.9oz bottle. Nose sweet grain, alcohol, grape, basically the pillars of crappy outsized Polish and Russian lagers, here in tacky form from Lithuania. Pours a rich clear amber, sometimes more red, sometimes more orange, with a compact off-white head. Taste cloyingly sweet with almost no bitterness, strong apple juice and grape juice flavor, heavy heavy honey, alcohol strong and fumy but not burning, and an oily slickness that provokes the urge to pitch. Sticky medium body, light corn and toast. Some acceptable caramel in the middle, if a little dull; there’s nice layering of the malt flavors into strata that play well with each other -- some things to like. Still, this is a rough boozer for the end of the night when you’re already drunk. [2015.12.18: 1.9]

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pretty damn good but not much depth of flavor. Good bready flavor. Almost like a slightly watered down Salvator.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
2015-07-03. Crisp dark amber body with a small head. Aroma is boozey, sweet malt character. Flavour is similar, sweet caramel malt.
Average bodied palate, good carbonation. Better than I expected to be honest, but the alcohol presence is just a bit much as is typical for some of these stronger eastern european breats. Bottle from Merchant’s Wine, Dearborn MI.

Palate- A heavy bodied beer with medium carbonation and a creamy texture.
Overall- An average beer, The Frazetta inspired artwork on the label is pretty cool

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pint bottle. This is, literally, a hot mess. Alcohol dominates. It does bring some fruit and rich malts. So much sweetness, too. Unpleasant.
