I found this 500ml bottle at Sal's Liquors in Addison, IL for $2.99. Cool label but no freshness date.

The beer poured a murky apple cider color with a 1-finger white head. Short lived retention and almost no lacing.

The aroma was on the sweet side Toffee/maple syrup smell with bready malt and a good dose of alcohol.

Very sweet caramel and bready malt flavor with a lot lot lot of alcohol. Huge and unpleasant alcoholic aftertaste as well. Yuk!

Medium bodied with medium high carbonation.

Not very drinkable. A waste at any price.

So picked this stuff from a bottle shop in Chattanooga, TN out of curiosity of trying some import from Russia. Turns out this is from Lithuania.

Anyways.

Pours a brown colored liquid. Deep amber with copper and brown hues inside the glass. Almost one finger thick tan colored head that disappears very very quickly. Leaves nothing behind. No lacing. Some bubbles seen rising up. Slight haze.

Extremely rich malty sweetness with caramel and toasty character. Alcohol is not apparent. Seems like some dry fruit as well, some figs may be. But very off setting aroma. Not inviting at all. No phenol, alcohol or hops are felt.

Hits the tongue with all the sweetness there is. Looks richer in molasses. Full of caramel, bad toffee taste and flat single sided malt taste. Tastes a bit unfermented. Finish is sweet. Some alcohol is felt. A bit of carbonation and alcohol add some value to an otherwise flat malt taste. No bitterness, but some hops must have been used to prevent the sweetness from overpowering.

Medium to slightly full bodied. Moderate to slightly high carbonation. N oastringency except for some moderate alcohol feeling that creeps in with taste. Sweet on palate. Difficult to finish.
