Meh. Too watery, to little complexity for my taste. Some roasted coffee, little chocolate.

haggis03a3 (197) - Orinda, California, USA - APR 21, 2016
Almost black with a tan head. Aroma is brown sugar, molasses, roasted malt, fruit. Sweet flavor, fruity, and finishes with the roasted malt. Soft palate.

Flasche - Dunkelbraune, fast schwarze Farbe mit leicht dunklem Schaum. Cremiger Krper mit feiner Kohlensure. Aromen von Schokolade und dunklem Malz, im Nachgeschmack etwas Alkohol. Leicht slich, wie es sich fr ein Porter gehrt. Angenehm.

Butelka 500 ml. Ciemne o brazowej palonej pianie, ktora szybko redukuje sie do obreczy. W zapachu niestety dosc ubogie. Bardzo plaskie karmelowo czekoladowe tony. Smak to jednak wynagradza. Swietnie ukryty alkohol. Na pierwszy plan rzuca sie melasa karmel czekolada ale piwo jest umiarkowanie slodkie. Ziemisty posmak . Niezly porter. Mysle ze przelezakuje kilka.

BeerRenter76 (902) - Texas, USA - MAR 19, 2016
Originally rated on 7/24/08. My first russian beer, have to say it was pretty good. Pours a very dark body with a thin tan cap that left good lacing. Aroma of coffee, molasses, and chocolate. Flavor was similar to the aroma, it was a sweet beer that went down smoothly, nice finish, and upon finishing a pleasant little buzz. Price was good as well, I would recommend this beer.

King_Alex_II (1228) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 2, 2016
Brown color with little foam. Roasty and a little heavy nose. Heavy sweet taste with roasted coffee aromas and licorice. Sweetish aftertaste.

Coffee and roasted malts not so intense as I expected. Decent porter but little bit poor. I liked but I would like to find more in.

My first experience with a Russian brew. I cant put my finger on it to name exactly what it is that doesnt agree with my taste. Theres a lingering flavor along with an aroma that simply doesnt appeal to my senses. I can drink it however I dont believe Ill revisit it.
