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°

Bottle (as Bochka Aged). Pours clear amber/copper with a moderate white head. Bready, silghtly sweet malty aroma, with a little grass. Flavor is slightly sweet bready malt, only a little sticky, with a modicum of hops and a bit of astringency and bitterness in the finish. A bit too carbonated and maybe too astringent, but a nice fairly full body and pretty decent on the whole.

Oh, now I see it was a Vienna - thougt it was some odd, herb-flavoured lagerwith very strong bitterness that had been lying in the barrel for a long time. Kinda heavy but good, I enjoyed it.

Jedsbrew (465) - Rhineland, Missouri, USA - SEP 28, 2005
Amber hue with a soft creamy head, good lacing and a mild dryish malty aroma. Light to medium bodied, caramel malty flavor, some molasses, almost cloying with some alcohol and bitterness in the finish. Not the freshest in the world but still drinkable-probably pretty good when fresh.

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.

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.

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.
