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. 15°

PorterPounder (5489) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - MAR 5, 2006
Half-time Liquors, Tallahassee, Fl, - 500 ml. bottle. Nice, dark orange to light brown pour with a thin, but sticky white head. Aroma is sweet and caramel-like with some molasses notes and a hint of chocolate. Full bodied flavor is rib sticking with hints of caramel, molasses and a back end of alcohol. The alcohol blends in well though and does not distract. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy and this one stays strong throughout. One of the better Russian beers I have experienced.

SaintMatty (5203) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAY 14, 2008
500ml Bottle - Copper coloured with a large white head. Fresh,yeasty and malty aroma with a hint of tea. Malty and moderately bitter taste with tea also being detected along with a yeasty element. The bitterness does not last too long but a fairly pleasant finish lingers. Not bad at all and quite a nice surprise.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2003
Nothing special really. Amber colour. Quite malty and sweet, but not very full bodied.

heemer77 (5100) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - OCT 3, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 5, 2004 Has a light amber iced tea type coloring. The head was very small. The aroma is both nutty and bready. The taste is oak, molasses and bread. This is surprisingly good. The best beer I had in Ukraine and it is brewed in Russia by a company owned by Miller. Weird.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2004
"Seasoned" as in aged, as my bottle states. Clear copper color with a nice tall light beige head. Small amount of lace. Aroma of mild caramel and pale malt with a hint of grass. Toffee and nutty flavors. Light and airy feel. Light acetic finish that helps sweep away some of the sweetness. Alcohol comes out as it warms. Nice malt linger. One of the better russian lagers I’ve had.

RichardGretton (4241) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 2, 2002
Great long lasting dense head from this brown beer. The flavour and aroma is prodominently mildly coffee, and a lot harsher than a dunkel. A great russian beer.

Aurelius (4127) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - APR 8, 2006
Rich, ale-y, oatmeal cookie aroma - molasses, vanilla, grainy. Orangish, medium oak color, huge head. LIghtly astringent, moderately bitter, parched graininess, medium-light sweetness, dark syrup flavors. Medium body, finishes exceptionally bitter and alcoholic. A notch above most of the Eastern European brews.

rickgordon (3843) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2011
From bottle. Amber colour with creamy head. Caramelly malty, sweet nose with hints of toffee. Short flavour with sweet industrial lager style. Light to medium body with no bitterness.

rauchbier (3598) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2003
Bottled. Deep bronze with a good rocky cream coloured head. Though it was going to be a dunkle style but more of a spicy Vienna or märzen. Lemony citric aromas along with malt and a suggestion of coconut that follows through into the mouth with a spicy maltiness. Sweet chewy malty and alcoholic finish.
