The color of the beer - brown, when you look at the light - streaked with shades of mahogany. Froth beige. Aroma mostly pronounced malt, with characteristic karamelistostyu, zhzhёnkoy light, dark tones of bread and fruit. The body is medium-full, but very soft and really velvet. The taste is very balanced with firm bitterness. Mnogosolodovost unique flavor and complexity. Then there are caramel and chocolate, and fruit, as well as the grain component of rye malt. Bitterness felt slightly burnt bread crust. This crust is still a long aftertaste with light nepritornoy sweetness.

Pours clear dark red with small head. Aroma is very caramel and sugar like, a bit of roasted bread. Taste contains some burned sugar, bread, cookies, malt. Has slight bitterness, but sugar taste overrules it. A lot of carbo, that kills delight. Not awful, drinkable.
