Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JAN 21, 2016
Bottle in Kiev. Amber pour, sugary, some ripe fruits and caramel in the aroma. Watery texture, slightly boring, sweet and thin.

artemb (904) - Chisinau, MOLDOVA - NOV 24, 2015
UPDATED: NOV 25, 2015 Aroma: malty, bready, roasted with very light spicy herbs Taste: sweet with some tannin astrigency and some fruity sourness. Flavour: roasted bread, some sunflower oil, some spices. Macro dunkel with very light spices and astrigency. Not bad for macro, however not so strong and spicy as expect for Xmas beer. Note: my sample was 4,4%

Beer, as in previous years, produced in a limited quantity. Unlike beer 2012-2014 period, according to the data on the label, this year has been slightly modified formulation. So, at the same density, alcohol content increased slightly (from 3.9 to 4.4%) + from the composition of the maltose syrup disappeared.

ectuohy27 (1155) - ESTONIA - FEB 14, 2015
Somewhat sweeter/maltier than the usual Lvivske run but nothing hugely distinctive (would actually not have known it was a dunkel--or even a dark beer--had I tasted it blind.) A bit watery as well, and not much in the way of Christmas spices, but quite drinkable nonetheless

pfriesen (113) - Richmond Hill, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 8, 2015
Really well put together, nice lacing with a lighter body. Some apple, brown sugar, not picking up much spice though

Johnsense (1629) - - FEB 8, 2015
Dark brown pour, puffy head. Lighter spice, brown sugar aroma. Grassy, spicy, caramel, brown sugar. Medium to light body.

djoeye (4605) - Tromsř, NORWAY - DEC 31, 2014
Mahogany body. Fluffy fawn head. Berryish spices, fruity dark malts, fruity grassy sweet hops to the nose. Tastes fruity brown malts, plums, crowberries, grass, leafy hops, colabean, chocolate. Finishes fruity but not lingering. Average body, soft carbonation. Nice sipper to new year dishes or a fruit plate. [50cl br btl 3.9% 11.6°, tp091214 Bb090615 [email protected]’po Kremenchuk UA]
