Deep red with yellowish head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, faint floral hops, some sulphur. Taste toffee, malty, nutty, some herbal hops. Light body, aking to watery. Light spicy bitterness and light caramel sweetness in the aftertaste, Slight drying astringency. Very quaffable mainstream beer, tasting simple but balanced. Nice drop!
On tap at Kuhmistr, Minsk. Dark mahogany coloured with a pale beige head. Caramel and raisins with malt and hints of bread and dark fruits. Sweet and malty with a rather light bitterness. Fair enough. Tsukihime (3) - NETHERLANDS - MAY 19, 2017 does not count

Aroma is malt, caramel, nuts.
Taste follows the aroma.
Medium body, average carbonation. Rychuku (115) - POLAND - MAR 2, 2017
Apparently they changed the name to "aksamitnoe", which means the same (velvet). Clear, light-brown colour, average, darkish head. Light, sweet caramel aroma. Taste sweet, peanuts and caramel, but also kind of sour, which spoils the overall impression. NikitaDE (87) - Minsk / Schweinfurt, Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 14, 2017
Dark brown color. The foam is lasting only several secobds. Aroma is so miserable, only silly caramel notes. The taste is okay - malts, caramel. Sweet but again a bit watery finish.

Clear, dark brown color with a crimson tinge and a large, tanned head of normal retention. Aroma of malts, caramel, some wood, sugar, and perhaps some nuts. Taste is also malty, some chocolate is introduced but otherwise the beer seems very much like its own aroma. A light body, a creamy texture, and an average carbonation. Finish is medium long and sweet, sugary to an extent but certainly not syrupy. All in all I have never been particularly fond of dunkels and this one does not change my mind.
Dark beer with caramel and nuts. Minimal head, light sweetness, light body, light finish
