Bottled. Many thanks to Gurthnar! Aroma minimal of roasted malt. Taste is superb! Dried plums! My favorite dried fruit! Love it! It is a eurolager type of flavored water, I know, but damn it tastes great! :D

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
50cl screw-top bottle. Rather fresh. Unfortunately, they now call it a beer-drink, not a beer. It has quite some additives to it: coloring agent, pasteurizers, sweeteners etc. A big disappointment for me. I used to like Stary Melnik selection, but I can not say that now. I would advise you not to purchase more than 1 bottle. For me, this drink was on of the worst drinks I had this year.

50cl bottle at Svevan (road cafe) near Tallinn. Pours very dark with an off-white head. Mild malty aroma with caramel, dark fruits and hint of roasted malt. Quite sweet but still fairly balanced. Easy drinkable and went well with the food.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
bottle, delivered by pivnizub! Deep brown colour, mid-sized beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Medium-bodied, malty base with chocolate and caramel, hits of coffee. Lingering chocolatey finish. Much better than expected.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle:Deep ruby-amber coloured, stable and lacy off-white head, sweetish toasty-roasty nose, some malty bitterness in the background; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied, but quite soft; sweet toasty-malty finish, ending with a delicate bitterness. Surprise, a decent Dunkel, better than expected...

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
50cl bottle thanks to onkelgobber. Pours dark brown with a red hue - a thin head. The nose has honey and gingerbread, going into Madeira. The taste has more of the cake notes with a nice cinnamon and rum note that stays with you. The palate is balanced with a medium body and texture. Overall, a decent beer for scooping.
