2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
33cl bottle as a gift (bought at the brewery - labeled "Gubernija art drink series"). Pours clear deep amber with off-white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with bready notes, rye and hints of dark fruits and some earthy notes. Sweet, caramelly and malty with a fairly light bitterness. Decent, stuff, but too sweet for me and not quite my favourite style.

On bottle with Visionthing, thanks a lot! Brown color, good foam. Medium aroma intensity; malty, dried fruits-'some fruitiness. Medium body & complexity. Quite sweet- a little too much for me. Good craftsmanship - but too sweet & malty

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
At a tasting, thanks Stas, smallish creamy head, a touch hazy dark red color with light brown hues, aroma of caramel and candy, caramel flavour with fruity sourness and a strong but not cloying candy sweetness. Mediocre.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas. Clear amber. Aroma of malt, caramel, a fruity note and a toasty hint. Sweet flavor with caramel and a cough syrup note. Medium-bodied. Sweet, one-dimensional and not too pleasant.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml bottle, thanks to djoeye for sharing. Dense, off-white head. Clear copper coloured body. Good amount of lacing. Malt-accented aroma, some dusty hops. Mid-sweet bread-like malty flavours in addition to herbal hops and a touch of prunes. Rather sweet ending. Mostly hidden alcohol. Okay, in danger of getting cloying sweet (Tromsř 11.11.2014).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Many thanks to kevnic2008. Smooth malty and quite sweet beginning. Brown sugar, hints of roast, nice bitterness, getting stronger till the end. The mainpart is sweet, brown roasted malt, brown sugar with hints of herbs. The aftertaste is smooth, lots of brown sugar together with a moderate bitterness. Nice!

Bottled 500ml. -from Iki supermarket Vilnius. Clear amber coloured, minimal pale beige head, caramel and malt in the nose. Toasted malt, sweet caramel, touch of alcohol and discreet hops presence with heavy sweetness in the finish. Not the best choice to finish evening session.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear copper brown, under a low dense blond head. Refined, heavily sweet malt nose Some fine bread tones, and hint of dark fruits. Thick, almost succulent mouthfeel. Near full body. Sweetish peppery and rounded roasty caramel flavor. A tad on the sweet side. Anyway, lots of qualities in this one.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
500 ml bottle. L13/12/13. BB 14/04/2014. From Lithuania. Ačiū Tautvydas!
Clear dark copper colour with a small greyish light tan head.
The aroma is metal, sweet malt, caramel and bread.
The flavour is also quite sweet with diacetyl, sweet maltiness, breadiness and some dryish metal. Not that great. Lacks the freshness.
