Great beer. Its light, adequately aromatic, flavorful, and extremely strong. It tastes very similar to Russian beers, specifically Baltica. For having such a high alcohol content (8.7%) it feels surprisingly light. I prefer it much better than Belgian beers which are typically heavy and sweet like maple syrup. If you can find a bottle, pick it up. You won't be disappointed.

Mmmmm, that sweet and bitter taste. Flowers and alcohol. Hard candy, you know, the butterscotch and root beer flavors. Dissolve an aspirin in a jelly jar of sweet vermouth.

This smells like jelly beans with the faintest whiff of brake fluid. A lot of caramel and marzipan. Then you get the medicinal bitterness. This is just revolting. I'm surprised so many people seemed to get it down.

The best feature is that after the carbonation evaporates in about two minutes, it looks just like Scotch whisky. From the 500 ml bottle bought at AJ's Fine Foods in Phoenix.

A: The beer is clear light amber orange in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high off white head that died down a bit but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of apples are present in the nose along with notes of sweet malts and hints of alcohol.
T: The overall taste is a little sweet and rather malty with notes of apples and hints of alcohol. As the beer warms up, the alcohol becomes a little more noticeable.
M: It feels medium-bodied and a little syrupy on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: This beer reminds me a lot like a sweetned version of an American Malt Liquor except the taste is not that offensive. The apple flavors definitely help to mask some of the alcohol. This beer is surprisingly not that difficult to drink considering its style and strength.

16.9oz bottle poured into a pint glass

Appearance- Yellowish in color with amber hues and a tiny bit of white head that fizzes away quickly. Lots of carbonation bubbles streaming up from the bottom.

Smell- A tart hop with hints of bready grainy malt.

Taste- A hint of booze followed by toasted wheat and grain with a nice tart hop balance.

Mouthfeel- Nice medium mouthfeel with tons of carbonation that is an easy drinking beer.

Overall- A very tasty beer for the style. Lots of flavor that is well balanced and pretty easy om the palate.

Poured into pint glass, color is amber, feint head.

Smell is grainy, kinda harsh, not much malt flavor to note.

Taste is also harsh, lots of grain but no malt specific notes, light adjunct. Bitterness is there but not adding anything.

Mouthfeel is actually ok, not a harsh carbonation.

Overall, a euro dark lager with nothing to stand out

Served in a pint glass.

Appearance: Slightly darker (maybe bolder is a better word) gold with little bubbles on the body. Light white head that is a settles to nothing before a sip. Take a taste and no head at all.

Smell: Light malt scent, and that is about it. Not bad but definitely not much word smelling here.

Taste: Like a serious malt beverage, I do like it but not the best you will have. Strong alcohol feel that makes the bitterness feel a little sweet. Feels like a light marzen with it slightly being creamy.

Mouth: Great after taste, but disappears as quick as you can blink.

Overall: This beer is good for a buzz, but that's really it. Not a bad thing, just don't treat it like the best beer will ever get because there is room for improvement. Salud!
