COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Zolotaya Bochka Seasoned is a beer which brewing requires almost twice the amount of time as usual, due to long seasoning in specific conditions, in which it gains full-bodied flavour and a natural high strength. 14.9°

JoeMcPhee (8551) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 2, 2011
Deep amber pour with some thin white head. The aroma is fairly caramelly and slightly sweet. A little bit of clean toasted malt and a touch of sweet vanilla-like character. There is a little bit of light sweetness. There is some peppery character as well with a little bit of clean lagery sweetness. It’s actually a decent Vienna - which for Russia is pure awesome.

GTAEgeek (1285) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - AUG 22, 2010
Bottle in Moscow, Russia. Pours a deep, clear amber color with a medium white head. It leaves a fair amount of lacing. The aroma is very malty, with some notes of corn, pine hops, and some slight, tart fruits. The flavor is mostly sweet with an unpleasant sour and bitter finish. The body is somewhat heavy, and the alcohol warmth is undeniable. Overall, a decent beer.

0.5L bottle, medium lasting beige head with some lacing, clear,deep but not dark brown colour, strong caramel aroma with some dried fruits, flavour of caramel and dried fruits with notes of cheap brandy, alcohol strong and overwhelming adding an unwelcome bitterness. Could have been nice with less alcohol.
