Smells malty, sweet, toffee, bit of cocoa powder, molasses. Taste is sweet caramel, roasted, metallic, bit of fruitiness (reminds me of nectarines for some reason). Nice creamy mouthfeel with a lingering sweetness. I like that sweetness, but wish it had a bit more roastiness to it. Nice beer

Indra (2711) - Suburbia, Kansas, USA - JUL 18, 2005
500ml bottle. Aroma is sweet and rich, with notes of molasses, milky chocolate, raisin, vanilla and faint roastiness. Deep brown-black color with an uneven tan head. Flavor is toasty to start and very lightly bitter to start, with a darkly fruity middle reminiscent of prune and licorice and having a big, sweet, dark brown sugary finish. Somewhat thin on the palate, body is medium-full. Interesting enough, in its way.

Nate (4279) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 15, 2005
Rich caramel and roasty malt sweetness. Molasses and Twizzlers, Bohemian malt and light fruity hops. Coffee and anise notes, cocoa. Earthy, grassy, herbal. Dark black-brown clear, with thin light tan lacing head. Medium heavy watery body with medium carbonation. Starts malty and sweet, reminds me of doppelbock. Caramel and coffee, anise. Mild carbonic tang and saltiness toward the finish. Light dry roasted malt and bitterness. After is grainy and mildly sweet. Just a bit watery overall, but nice taste. Hint of the 7% abv.

I was deployed to the "-Stans" a couple of months ago. While at one air base we were allowed two beers, twice a week. Since this was a Russian speaking country we had, of course, Russian beers to choose from. Due to only being allowed two beers, we all went for the highest alcohol content we had to choose from. No. 6 was the highest content in the biggest bottle....We have a Winner! The odd fact is that this was a really good beer. I was blown away at how good aroma and body was. Rich chocolatey malt flavor with a kick. If I could find this beer locally, I would keep some on hand all the time. Very good brew!

UPDATED: JUL 10, 2005 (bottle) I was quite impressed by this. An aroma that I can only describe as chocolately-grapey. A flavor that stayed with me from the time my lips touched it to the time I swallowed - very consistent. Quite yummy. I wish Id had another one.
