3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 mL bottle shared by ebone1988 for the stupid book. The pour is a dark ruby copper color with a thicker light tan head and a lack of lace as it falls to a small bubbly ring. The aroma is very malty and full of caramel there is a little bitterness to it. It’s interesting. The flavor is definitely sharp and malty. A light caramel and a sharpness to it really ties it together. This is a bit messy, but it’s not terrible. The mouth feel is a little light and surprisingly carbonated with a lingeringly bitter caramel aftertaste. It’s not terrible, I suppose.

Clear brown colour, thin beige head, disappearing quickly. Toffee and rsted malts, no hops. Sweet malty taste with chocolate notes. Light body, average carbonation, sweet finish with roasted tones. Not so bad, but its boring.

Sampled at Russian House in Austin, TX. Drank from the bottle. Definite malt lead. Light touch of sweetness afterwards. Glad I had a Russian beer. Worth the effort.

Originally rated on 12/12/08. #4 pours a slightly murky deep brown body, with a thin light tan cap that didnt leave any lace. Aroma and flavors of sweet malts, and lots of caramel. Overall it was o.k. but nothing terribly great.
