3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
500 ml. bottle split with Kogymo. Procured @ Anna Maria. Pours reddish dark brown with a non-lasting tanned head. Taste & smells of caramel extracts, soda-syrupy, rye bread, kvass, flat fake coca-cola, sugar,… Bit flat fake coca-cola & caramel extract feel to it, palate-wise. This felt like drinking caramel extracts & malts, not awful or anything but very non-beer-like. Obv. a bit odd feeling to it due to the unnatural associations with caramel extracts.

0.5l bottle from a Russian shop. Sweetish grainy nose. The beer starts malty-sweetish, not too sweet, not too malty, not much roast. The mainpart is a bit flat, sweetish, malty, not too intense. A bit dusty. Malty-sweetish with a strange roasted malty aftertaste.
