This sort of beer characterizes by a distinctive, barely suble, branded bitter. The unique taste of this velvety beer achieves by using six special malts at once: barely dark, barley light, biscuit, caramel, black and rye. “Zhiguli Barnoe Barkhatnoe” brews according to the classic receipt of velvety beer. Besides six special malts its consist of artesian water, surface yeast, hop and cane sugar. This beer is bottled in original dark brown bottles, highlighting rich amber color of beer. The novelty has not aesthetic but also practical advantages: there is an original ring on the bottleneck, that makes it more comfortable.

beautiful appearance of ruby-mahogany colour and one inch dense beige head; aroma of toasted rye bread, some milk chocolate notes, hints of dried plum and roasted nuts; taste is the same; well, much-much better than I expected -would be a perfect choiche if it was not 1.7 EUR in Hungary.

DoctorHU (442) - UKRAINE - JAN 27, 2016
The color of the beer - brown, when you look at the light - streaked with shades of mahogany. Froth beige. Aroma mostly pronounced malt, with characteristic karamelistostyu, zhzhёnkoy light, dark tones of bread and fruit. The body is medium-full, but very soft and really velvet. The taste is very balanced with firm bitterness. Mnogosolodovost unique flavor and complexity. Then there are caramel and chocolate, and fruit, as well as the grain component of rye malt. Bitterness felt slightly burnt bread crust. This crust is still a long aftertaste with light nepritornoy sweetness.

phfyysik (780) - Tartu, ESTONIA - JAN 11, 2016
Pours clear dark red with small head. Aroma is very caramel and sugar like, a bit of roasted bread. Taste contains some burned sugar, bread, cookies, malt. Has slight bitterness, but sugar taste overrules it. A lot of carbo, that kills delight. Not awful, drinkable.

mansquito (5474) - Nueva York, New York, USA - SEP 25, 2015
Some place in Kyiv: pours clear brown with little head. Looks like kvass. Aroma is light roast and caramel. Taste is actually better than the taste. Some roast and toasted malts. Really not bad.

Alengrin (4604) - BELGIUM - AUG 1, 2015
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2016 Bottle from a Russian supermarket in Ghent. Creamy, very dense and thickly lacing, moussy, very stable, yellowish beige head over a clear, very dark burgundy coloured beer with deep cherry red hue, finely sparkling and actually beautiful to look at. Simple sweet malt aroma, mostly caramel, clear presence of iron, hints of grass, hazelnuts and chocolate powder. Sweet, straightforward caramel taste, thin, lightly oily body with medium carbo (less strong than expected based on the looks), clearly metallic, finishing in the same caramel maltiness but with a light grassy hop accent somewhere in the background as well as a very light roasted (coffee) touch. Simple, but a pretty sight and still fairly enjoyable in view of its style; the back label said ’Schwarzbier’ somewhere, and indeed it has a lot in common with Czech cerne, the Bohemian equivalent to it, though it would need some more roasted bitterness to fully classify as one.
