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°

5000 (6862) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - JUN 18, 2006
Bottle: Fiery amber, very clear, moderate to large off-white head, a few rings of lacing, no noticeable carbonation.   Semi-sweet malt aroma, slight caramel like, a touch of hay and grass as well.   Cookie dough and bready on the tongue, fairly clean, but lingering straw.   Decent body, moderate mouthfeel.   Finish is a bit sticky, but otherwise clean.   Better than I had expected.

SaintMatty (6847) - 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.

Marduk (6436) - Reval, ESTONIA - AUG 24, 2013
500ml bottle. Clear redish amber color. Small white head, stays. Malty, papery, sweet notes in aroma. Alcohol, very malty, grainy flavor. Slightly papery aftertaste. Medium bitterness. Just purely to enjoy that bitter aftertaste I could have another one.

JPDIPSO (5672) - 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.

heemer77 (5297) - 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.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - JUL 1, 2003
Nothing special really. Amber colour. Quite malty and sweet, but not very full bodied.

Aurelius (5094) - 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.

RichardGretton (4653) - 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.

zvikar (4439) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - AUG 1, 2010
Pours clear bronze to orange with a light carbonation and a nice tan head, aroma of malt, caramel and bread with some yeasty marmalade notes, flavor of malt, cheap brandy and lots of alcohol, some herbs at the finish, quite zesty, light to medium body, something in between Vienna and European Strong.
