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°

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!

5000 (6299) - 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.

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.

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.

Aurelius (4379) - 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.

Delirium (636) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 10, 2007
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.

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.

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.

500ml bottle - thanks SaintMatty
Deep copper orange, healthy tight head. Baked bread aroma, a bit fruity - raisins. Slight hint of alcohol (drunk at room temperature, so that’s less surprising). Fairly soft palate. Grainy and buttery, a little bit woody. Sweet spiciness too, almost peppery. Long woody finish. Quite sophisticated beer, covers the alcohol pretty well. Worth hunting out, very good nutty lager.
