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.

Sweet toffee and caramel flavors highlight this beer. This is an easy drinking, medium bodied beer.

I’m rather certain that this is the famous "Zhigulevskoye" that the waitress at the Russian restaurant claimed to have served me. Deep red in colour, with a foamy beige head of good stamina. Sweet malts, some dark-roasted coffee and even a bit of dark berry aromas on the nose, but all in all rather weak in this department. A high, albeit somewhat cola-like carbonation when taken together with the overall sweetness. Sweet finish. Not necessarily my favourite porter-style beer, but enjoyable.

Simple one with only a few special moments. Brown sugar, some malt, some syrup and a bit of hay. Drinkable and noninspirational piwo.

McTapps (3018) - Ruhrgebiet, GERMANY - FEB 12, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep dark brown colour with low head and medium body. Aroma of malt and dark grains. Taste of bread, brown sugar, barley and caramel. Medium bitter with sweet finish. Average beer but not that bad.

Senka (349) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 17, 2014
50cl screw-cap bottle in a pint glass. Mildly caramelized malts and some hops. 0 body. Very faint aroma and taste. Low alcohol, and is an easy drink. Suits good with some sweet desert and extra cold on a hot day. Othervise, it is rather week example of a Dunkel.

Dzhigga (56) - Kirov, RUSSIA - JAN 11, 2014
Bottled. Small brown fast-disappearing head. Caramel and rye bread notes in aroma. Sweet taste. Some bread in flavor. Resembles russian kvas.

thirstyrabbit (1004) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 9, 2014
Bottle. Dark brown body with a reddish hue, medium tan head. Aroma has dry cocoa, rye bread, raisins. Sweetish taste of rye bread and dark malts. Pretty good light and sweet dark beer. I generally find Russian macros to be impossibly industrial but in this case I have to give credit where credit’s due: this is a nice beer, would drink again.

Marduk (2038) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 26, 2013
500ml bottle. Deep copper color. Small size, brown head, stays. Bread and caramel in aroma. Taste is identical to aroma. Rough mouthfeel.

MiP (13047) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2013
Bottle, 4.0%. Sweetish malt aroma, a little syrupy, perhaps even has molasses. Clear dark brown colour. Small fizzy tan head. The flavour is roasted and sweet at first. The finish has a lot of molasses and is more roasted.
