50cl bottle thanks to onkelgobber. Pours dark brown with a red hue - a thin head. The nose has honey and gingerbread, going into Madeira. The taste has more of the cake notes with a nice cinnamon and rum note that stays with you. The palate is balanced with a medium body and texture. Overall, a decent beer for scooping. pivnizub (10768) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - JAN 26, 2013
Bottle:Deep ruby-amber coloured, stable and lacy off-white head, sweetish toasty-roasty nose, some malty bitterness in the background; light to moderate sweet-bitter flavour, light bodied, but quite soft; sweet toasty-malty finish, ending with a delicate bitterness. Surprise, a decent Dunkel, better than expected... Quack-Duck (9490) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 16, 2013
bottle, delivered by pivnizub! Deep brown colour, mid-sized beige head. Aroma of roasted malts and chocolate. Medium-bodied, malty base with chocolate and caramel, hits of coffee. Lingering chocolatey finish. Much better than expected. thirstyrabbit (1849) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 7, 2011
Bottle. Dark brown body, medium head. Aroma is fresh and malty. Taste is sweet and malty. Low bitterness. Much better than Stary Melnik pale lagers, which vary from sub-average to nasty.

Chestnut brown. Has the aroma of bread, lots of sugars. This has a good dark sugary character. A bit like an American Dark with deep Asian sugars. It’s sweet, but the flavours are nice. Powertrip (1000) - Calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2012
Single bottle purchased from a grocery store in Krasnaya Polyana, Russia on 03/06/2012. Colour: Extremely dark red with no head. Nose: A very distinct and dominant burnt sugar aroma - clearly some nice toasted malt. Lots of dark grains. Taste: Medium sweet, medium-light bitter, medium-light sour. The caramel is abundant and plays the lead vocals here. A one-man band. DSG (15119) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 27, 2012
Bottle. Dark brown color with a nice big off-white head. Toasty malt aroma with dark bread and some caramel. Sweet flavor, a bit sugary, but not cloying, with malt, kvass-like notes and light toasty hints. Finish is also quite sweet. Light-medium-bodied. Surprisingly quite decent and easy-drinking. zvikar (6349) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - SEP 12, 2012
Pours like coke with a huge beige head, aroma of caramel, dark bread and cookies, flavor is sweet and metallic with some toasted bread, chocolate and vanilla, kvas like, medium bodied, OK Marduk (8218) - Reval, ESTONIA - OCT 13, 2012
500ml bottle. Dark brown color. Medium size, tan head appears, stays. Good lacing. Caramel, malts in the aroma. Very clean aroma. Caramel, malts, buttery, slightly metallic notes in flavor. Not bad, but very clean and boring.
