This sort of beer characterizes by a distinctive, barely suble, branded bitter. The unique taste of this velvety beer achieves by using six special malts at once: barely dark, barley light, biscuit, caramel, black and rye. “Zhiguli Barnoe Barkhatnoe” brews according to the classic receipt of velvety beer. Besides six special malts its consist of artesian water, surface yeast, hop and cane sugar. This beer is bottled in original dark brown bottles, highlighting rich amber color of beer. The novelty has not aesthetic but also practical advantages: there is an original ring on the bottleneck, that makes it more comfortable.

Some floral notes in the back. T - as the nose it tastes of roasted malts, caramel and toffee. There's a hint of bittersweet finish.

Gangstergafje (1274) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 30, 2017
UPDATED: NOV 15, 2017 30-10-2017; bottle; somewhere in Moscow, Russia. The looks of the beer are nice. It is a nice Dunkel/Tmavý. The beer seems to be clear and has a lovely ruby red color. It is not to dark. On top of the beer some nice and soft almond coloured foam is formed. Foam retention is average. Not bad. The smell of the beer is fine. Not to strong and not to special. It is a bit mild. I smell some mice malt aromas, some caramel and liquorice and also some dark fruits. There is also a nice tastiness. Some bitter hops are there, also giving some fresh fruity touches. Not bad. The taste of the beer is nice. It has a nice sweet maltiness, with some touches of caramel and liquorice. There is some dark fruit to. Hops give nice bitters, but also some fresh acidity. Well balanced. The palate of the beer is fine. Medium full body, smooth texture, but slightly thin. Carbonation is high. The finish of the beer is nice. It has some lovely sweet malts, syrupy touches and a bitterness from the hops. All in all, a nice beer. Good one.

A malty and sweet aroma. The small beige fizzy head disappears fast, the body is black. A malty taste, some chocolate and licorice, quite sweet. The body is light, a little bit creamy with a flat carbonation.

Lore (2898) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 24, 2016
beautiful appearance of ruby-mahogany colour and one inch dense beige head; aroma of toasted rye bread, some milk chocolate notes, hints of dried plum and roasted nuts; taste is the same; well, much-much better than I expected -would be a perfect choiche if it was not 1.7 EUR in Hungary.
