A dark beer with a full taste and strong malt aroma, with a prominent aftertaste of burnt malt and a light touch of wine.

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.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 3, 2004
(Bottled) Dark red color with a small but lasting head. Quite dry, malty and ashy aroma. Chalky and neutral, somewhat sweety-sugary, malty flavor. Medium-bodied, smooth-carbonated palate. A very nice and tasty, sweetish and quite full-bodied brew. Definitely worth tasting, while not quite earth-shaking.

Dunkel appearance with slightly dark wheat beerish flavours, and a floury thick palate. Not too bad at all.

rauchbier (3652) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 28, 2003
Bottled. Black brown, low head and condition. Initial roast barley aroma soon overtaken by a solvent/alcohol note. More roast flavours in the mouth with hints of raisins but the finish becomes thick and syrupy-sweet.

ElGaucho (2285) - Minnetonka, Minnesota, USA - MAY 23, 2003
Bought this beer in bottle at a market in Pskov, Russia. I was pleasantly surpised. It rivals Baltika 6 as the best Russian beer I've had (which isn't saying too much). Roasted malt aroma with some sweetness. Reddish brown body with white, frothy head. Avg. sized head that is mostly eroding. Looks like a coca-cola with less carbonation and with a frothy head. Not much lace to speak of. Flavor is rich and malty; dry and chalky. Pleasant. If I lived in Russia I would probably buy nothing but this and Baltika 6 (until I find another winner).

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!

Boystout (1000) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - AUG 11, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 2, 2004 Sweet, malty and even slightly roasty aroma above the glass of beautifully ruby liquid. Taste is malty, winey, fruity (plums and cherries) with fine dose of bitterness in the aftertaste.

ectuohy27 (708) - 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)

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