2.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
On tap at Brewery Õlleklubi in Tallinn, Estonia where it was listed as "Dark (Tume)" on the English menu and "Voor Sterke Dark Beer" on the Estonian menu. Brewery Õlleklubi tries to look like a brewery, but its house beers are mostly rebranded Latvian beers. According to information on RateBeer, it’s actual Tumšais brewed by Krāslavas Avots.
Lightly hazy, orange rusty brown with an off-white head and very good lacing.
Very sweet aroma of brown sugar and toffee.
Taste of super sweet malt, toffee, brown sugar and light molasses (i.e., molasses without the dark flavor).
Medium/full body and medium/low carbonization.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Quite malty, bit caramel, bready, weird fruity. Moderate sweet with some moderate bitter finish. Definitely not bad, but unbalanced for me and brings headaches X)

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap poured in PET bottle, Miestiņš beer store, Riga, Anniņmuižas iela 2. 5.9% alco
Pours brownish with good beige thick top, above average lasing, thick as well, diminishing speed - acceptable. Aroma - dominant sweet malty, a bit rye bread like with good tones of roasted, toasted malt. Taste is caramel-malt sweet with average bitter from darker malt and hopping, but hops are lesser partner in this flavor. Palate - medium+ body, quite thick texture, flat carbonation, finish is sweet plus light bitter. Easy drinkable overall, but not much cause becomes a bit annoying, a bit boring in taste.

Served into PET bottle from tap at Miestins, Riga. Enjoyed around the corner in a park. (noted at 4.8 on the label, 5.9% in the information booklet). Cloudy copper colour, coarse head. Distinct roasty bread aroma. Mid dry with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Bready and roasty with some spicy hops and hazelnuts. Slight malt bitterness. Nice!

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
From keg to PET bottle as "Krāslavas Tumšais" but the ABV is marked to be 6,2%. This can’t taste the same as the 4,8% version that is listed here. Copper body with a minimal head. Aroma has some berries and a weak roasty character. Taste has caramel and berries. Finish is nutty and sour. Feels off. Maybe the keg was oxidized?

Draught. Light copper color. Small off-white head. Wild strawberries, hops, some roastiness in aroma. Bitter, hoppy flavor. Mild coffee like aftertaste. Some weird unclean side taste.
Earlier Rating: 5/4/2012 Total Score: 3
Draught @Brewery õlleklubi. Black as coal. Small beige head, disappears quickly. Roasted malts, caramel, fruity, nuts in aroma. Sweet honey, burnt sugar, caramel in body. Very mild and short bitter ending, dark chocolate. Not a bad beer, but they serve it ice cold. I wonder how sweet it could be if served in normal temperature.
