Bottle. Dark brown/black, medium beige head. Sweet roasted malt and nut aroma, yet not anything spectacular. Medium sweet, with light bitterness. Medium body. Low carbonation. Long finish. Overall - pleasant and definitely a top tier experience from Bauskas Alus brewery.

ectuohy27 (1008) - ESTONIA - JUN 27, 2013
Very solid! Interesting beer; aroma is the same basic dark-malt and roast, but the taste is fairly light, with a less weighty palate and elements of apple to go with the usual chestnut and faint chocolate--better than the overpowering stickiness of other Baltic dark brews. True to style, even though it’s a rare style for the region

500 ml bottle. Thanks Andris!
Pours a dark brown colour a white foamy head. Aroma of strong sweet raisins, nuts, corn and palm. Flavour is rather sweet with caramel, raisins, nuts and rather interesting strong spiciness. Medium bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dry, nutty, slightly sweet finish. Surprisingly good.

Small beige head. Clear brown body with light carbonation. Light earthy nutty oily aroma with caramelly notes. Dry-sweet grainy earthy oily taste with cardamom notes. Mild, soft mouthfeel. Mid-bodied. Dryish grainy caramelly aftertaste with spicy cardamom and clove and dried fruit notes. Lovely! Highly drinkable and very complex. (0.5l bottle from Stockmann, Riga.)
