Bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a rusty looking reddish brown, with a small half inch head, and no lacing.

Smells kind of musty, stale, and a little metallic, with a slight bit of toasted bread poking through.

This has got to be one of the most flavorless dark lagers I've ever had. It's a bit musty and stale feeling, with some raisin, caramel, and toasted bread flavors in the smallest amounts to remain noticeable. This is watery, bland, and just plain boring. As meh as it gets.

This is light bodied, with a watery, think mouthfeel. It's should be drinkable, with how light it is, but it's not, given how meh it tastes.

This is a big fail. I don't know if the beer is always bad, or I just got a bad/old bottle, but I will not be revisiting either way.

A bomber. No bottle on date, but there was a spot for it. Poured into a stemmed tulip.

I don’t know how to evaluate a euro dark lager, but basically it is a malty Budweiser with a beautiful color and a poor head. 3.25

A – Pours a clear very dark amber with a one-finger rocky beige head that dissipates quickly. 3.75

S – Bright, fresh, slightly sweet, malty. 3.5

T – Malty, slight dark fruit. 3

MF – Medium-light body, medium-dry finish, slight sweetness, well carbonated. 3.25

500mL bottle, no date.

appearance is true to the bottle label - "deep velvet" deep red color, little head. smell is sweet. taste is smooth, even, slightly caramel malt. slightly earthy. no hop flavors detected at all. medium body and carbonation, average body.

overall, cool to try a beer from the Ukraine, but not that great.

No date stamp on the green bottle.

Loose clumps of bubbles on the surface, caramel color in the light, good clarity. Head breaks apart quickly, no lace to speak of.

Metallic and grainy aroma, slight sweetness, vague old coffee, no roast.

Astringent, husky toasted grains, dry finish. Not overly sweet thankfully. However it's pretty bland and one-note flavor wise. Not much body, pretty coarse and lacking finesse. Overall not something i'd pick up again.

look: 3 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

A: Pours a hazy ruby red in color with light amounts of visible carbonation. The beer jas a thin layer of soapy light beige head that reduces to an extremely thin film and a thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Light lacing is observed.

S: Fair amounts of dark fruit sweetness (raisin) as well as some caramel malt sweetness. Some slight hints of earthiness.

T: Lots of sweetness with some underlying earthiness - dark fruits (raisin) and caramel.

M: Medium bodied with moderate amounts of carbonation. Slightly dry with a light amount of thickness that is exhibited by coating the inside of your mouth.

O: More of a sipping beer than a sessionable one, a little too sweet to be easy to drink.

A: The beer is slightly hazy garnet in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a quarter finger high head with large bubbles that died down and eventually completely faded away.
S: There are sweet aromas of malts in the nose along with some notes of dark fruits.
T: The taste is very similar to the smell and also has some additional hints of caramel in the flavors.
M: It feels medium-bodied and has a bit of thickness and coats your mouth. A moderate amount of carbonation is present.
O: This beer is easy to drink and has some nice flavors. The taste isn’t very complex, but it would pair well with a meal.

.5L bottle.
Deep amber color. Great clarity. Khaki tinted white head. Holds just so-so at first and then depletes to nothing. Appears to have no sediment, most likely filtered. Average carbonation. Smells of clean lager yeast, mixed with some caramel malty tones. Smells well fermented.

Tastes of toast, caramel malt, a bit of roasty maybe. Light sweet adjunct flavor happening... Smooth mouthfeel. Carbonation gives a pleasant bite/acidity. Not huge off flavors. After taste is dark malt and slightly sweet. Bitterness and hop presence are minimal but suiting. Pretty good, nothing crazy awesome.

Brewed with maltose treacle.
Pours clear copper-brown beer with moderate tan head, leaving some laces. Smell of caramel malts and dark fruits. Good taste of caramel malts, slightly smoky and roasted, chocolate and fruits. Medium-bodied beerwith high carbonation. Pleasant, but not so well-balanced beer.

Out of a bottle this beer was a copper color with one finger of khaki colored head. The retention was so-so and it left spots of lacing. The aroma was of cereal grains, a bit of toasted malt and a bit of sweet malt. The flavors were not as appealing however. It tasted a bit skunky with notes of cereal, booze, sweet malt, caramel malt and an underlying flavor of h that seemed to spoil the rest. The mouthfeel was frothy, the body medium and the carbonation a touch too high. I wasn’t really sure what to expect from this one and even after trying it I wasn’t really sure what to think. Personally, it just didn’t appeal to my palate.
