Kaum darzustellen, wie eklig es ist. Vielleicht wäre die Beschreibung von Melasse und Zucker der beste Vergleich. Ekelhaft und eins der wenigen Biere, die ich nach dem ersten Schluck direkt weggekippt habe.

McTapps (4574) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep dark colour with steady head and smooth body. Aroma of sugar and caramel mixed with malt. Taste of brown sugar, sweet malt, bread and grains. Very sweet overall - sticky, awful sweet. Not drinkable at all.

ectuohy27 (627) - ESTONIA - JAN 26, 2014
Sticky sweetness (flat cola notes evident, and this bottle isn’t that old--production date 2 months ago in Tatarstan), some toasted malt, almost bizarrely alkaline finish...that said, not terrible (I bet the earlier 6+ % abv version was better, but now it clocks in at 4.6% abv)

BeerSkull (1314) - SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2011
Clear malty flavor with a slightly burnt nuance and with elements of sweet syrup, fruit and wine. Despite the rather special taste it’s surprisingly pleasant. If you find it’s definitely worth testing!

FatPhil (9596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 17, 2008
500ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn)
Dark red, brief head. Understated malt aroma - some burntness. Rich toasted malt taste, yes it’s quite stout, but neither chocolatey nor coffee-like. Sticks to the tongue, so a roasted finish. Covers 6.5% very well, helped by a bit of sweetness.

bottled. purple coloured, soft texture, chocolate porridge aroma, quite tasty - ovaltine. much better than expected

Bottle. Bit like a stout - good and chocolately, with a rich flavour that hangs about conscientiously.

I’ve got it in the local Russian store. A very pleasant toasted taste. Excellent beer to enjoh next to a fire in cold days, but not quite so possibly in warm ones. Excellent beer nevertheless...
