Ungstrup (38248) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2003
An amber beer with no head. The flavor is sweet and slightly bitter. An OK beer - but nothing special.

omhper (25565) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAY 12, 2003
Bottled. Chestnut brown, Richly malty with soft mouthfeel. Still it gives a bold and clumsy impression, and points are also deducted for the syrupy finish and lack of complexity.

fiulijn (21022) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 15, 2003
Brown-amber color. Regular dark beer with a lot of caramel, but not impressive (and tastes a bit like old beer).

TBone (18099) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 16, 2005
Bottled (dated 03.05.2005)
Dark ruby color with nice big brown head. Malty, caramelly, roasted aroma. Quite liquerish mouthfeel, sweet sugary. Sweetness overcomes 6.5% alcohol count. The best of the 5 Stary Melniks.

FatPhil (16930) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAR 17, 2008
500ml bottle (Rimi, Tallinn)
Dark red, brief head. Understated malt aroma - some burntness. Rich toasted malt taste, yes it’s quite stout, but neither chocolatey nor coffee-like. Sticks to the tongue, so a roasted finish. Covers 6.5% very well, helped by a bit of sweetness.

leaparsons (10712) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 11, 2002
Quite an odd beer. Similar to a malt liquor, but lighter. There are strong alcohol notes and a chemical nastiness in the finish.

ogivlado (7955) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 26, 2006
Bottled(500ml). -dark ruby coloured, little pale brown head, sweet malty and light roasted aroma with slight toffee notes, too sweet syrupy finish

motelpogo (7704) - Plzen, CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 25, 2007
bottled. purple coloured, soft texture, chocolate porridge aroma, quite tasty - ovaltine. much better than expected

McTapps (6957) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep dark colour with steady head and smooth body. Aroma of sugar and caramel mixed with malt. Taste of brown sugar, sweet malt, bread and grains. Very sweet overall - sticky, awful sweet. Not drinkable at all.

MichaelAwesome (6545) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - MAR 16, 2014
Kaum darzustellen, wie eklig es ist. Vielleicht wäre die Beschreibung von Melasse und Zucker der beste Vergleich. Ekelhaft und eins der wenigen Biere, die ich nach dem ersten Schluck direkt weggekippt habe.
