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°

Pours amber with thin white head. Aromas are smoke, caramel and booze. Metallic aromas. Not really a good one! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

rsmeds (228) - Turku, FINLAND - DEC 15, 2005
Bottled. Enjoyed from a used tea cup in Novosibirsk, Russia. Clear, deep amber color, with small off-white head with short retension. Malty sweet aroma, with a hint of alcohol. Flavor is fruity (apple, banana?), caramelly sweet malts, with a hoppy alcoholic tang in the fairly long finish. Not terribly exciting, but enjoyable enough, and the alcohol makes the flavour appreciatively rich. The carbonation is certainly a bit heavy though, but the same goes for most russian beers in my opinion.

YantarCoast (214) - Moscow, RUSSIA - NOV 12, 2014
500ml bottle, ABV is 6.8%. Pours a very pretty amber with a small white head that fades, but not completely. Minimal amount of lacing. Faint caramel aroma. Taste is caramel followed by a slightly bitter and alcoholic finish that I found a bit harsh to begin with.

A friend of mine brought this beer back to me from their recent trip to Russia. The aroma was rather insipid, slightly weezy and metallic. A nice light beige head crowned a light amber, slighly brown colored beer with superb clarity. Bochka Seasoned was soft on the tongue with barely creamy mouthfeel. The flavour was well balanced with the hops overwhelming the malt just a bit providing a sharp, dry swallow. There was something going on in the aftertaste (alcohol?); but, it wasn't that noticeable. The overall affect was rather full.

Petronius (55) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2012
Dark amber beer with big shored-lived head. Not very aromatic - you can smell alcohol and bread - that’s it. Toasted bread and burned sugar. Creamy, a tad sweet, alcohol is evident but pleasant. Slightly bitter finish.

One of the best bock beer in Russia. Alcohol is not feelin when i served this in glass for belgian beer, aroma is flavoured with white bread, some alcohol notes, taste is creamy, fruity, little honey and little touch of hop, after sip i feelin’ aftertaste like ale :) It’s a very decent Russian bock, recommended!
