3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On tap at a draught beer-selling joint in Vyborg poured into a 500ml pet bottle and consumed from a glass half an hour later, cola brown colour, small cream head. Aroma is quite roasty with coffee and notes of chocolate and resin, full body, medium carbonation, bitter and roasty finish with a hint of starchiness lingering in the mouth. Quite pleasant and felt like something between a dark lager and Baltic porter, if it was more intense in the aroma and without the starchiness, would’ve been seriously awesome, still good.

Coffee dominates with a slightly sweet aftertaste. A very enjoyable dark beer, although it seems like it doesn’t know whether it’s a dark lager or a stout. Too heavy for a lager but too thin for a stout. Never tasted anything like this anywhere else.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap. Dark reddish pour, white foam. Roasty, nutty aroma with lots of caramel and some smoke. Taste is sweet and smokey, tastes more like porter than dunkel to me. Palate is smoothly carbed, full body. A bit too sweet for my taste but still highly drinkable.

På fat i St. Petersburg 2011. Nästan helt utan kolsyra, mycket söt med tydliga karamelltoner. Dog är det något annat i den som gör att sötman inte tar helt över. Småtrevlig

On tap in St Petersburg, July 2011.
Dark brown with a small head. Aroma of roasted malt and coffee. On the sweet side with some notes of fruit in the taste. A descent beer I must say.

Bottled, from Norman, St. Petersburg. Hazy dark brown, mid sized head. Evident coffee aroma. Mid sweet with medium body, low carbonation and well rounded mouthfeel. Coffee with a minimal amount of sugar, salight salty bitterness. Pleasant and nicely drinkable.
