slang (654) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - JAN 25, 2006
Odd yeast smells when the bottle was opened. Nice red foil deco. Pours looking nice, with large foam head over brown ale. Sweet nose of malts. Flavor is better than average, esp for the style. Very minimal hop bite, noticable only in the finish. While the palate is a little "off", this was still enjoyable. Pint .9 @ $2.50

SeniorZozo (1532) - Budapest, HUNGARY - NOV 25, 2016
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.

KevinReddirt (117) - Midland, Texas, USA - NOV 24, 2016
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.

BeerRenter76 (882) - Texas, USA - SEP 24, 2016
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.

johndoughty (5229) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2016
Bottle. Brown with a small head that dissipated after a few minutes.. Malty with a medium body. Quite surprised me in a very positive way being far better than I expected.Pleasant and easy to drink.

dnicolaescu (2388) - Chișinău, MOLDOVA - AUG 11, 2016
BOTTLE 50 CL. Clear ruby-red, beige head. Too much burnt sugar in the nose, along with a little dark malts and some sweet and spicy dark bread. The taste starts sweet, but soon is getting dryer and spicier, even a little salty. Light spicy and hoppy bitterness in the after-taste. Quite a decent dunkel, just a bit too hard on brown sugars.

Nevalainen (692) - FINLAND - AUG 2, 2016
Clear amber color with tiny beige head. Aroma of caramel. Taste is medium sweet, flauvour of caramel and coffee. A bit sticky mouthfeel, but quite nice dunkel anyway.
