At a tasting, thanks dnicolaescu, smallish creamy head, clear brown to red colour, aroma of caramel, dark bread and a hint of wood, aroma of prune, kvass and dark bread, a bit too sweet. Drinkable but not worth your while.

MarkoNm (439) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUN 11, 2014
Pours a dark brown color, slight red undertone, topped with decent off color head. A fairly strong caramel aroma, some chocolate and some alcohol aroma is picked up by the nose. The taste is sweet, slightly roasty, but only just, slight bitterness in the end. Light taste, but nice.

Zarkam (371) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 19, 2014
500ml bottle from supermarket in Vyborg, dark reddish brown colour, small beige mostly vanishing frothy head, litle lacing. Moderately malty roasty aroma dark bread, grain and some coffee, raisin and chocolate notes, some light herbal hops in the background. Taste is initially moderately sweet with some bitterness mainly from the roasted malts that gets a bit more powerful in the roasty finish. Medium body, somewhere between watery and oily texture, lively carbonation. A fairly drinkable and tasty if unsurprising dark beer of some kind. One of the better commonly found ones in Russia though not the best.
