2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Malty sweet aroma, thin white head that goes quickly and no lacing on the glass. Dark amber coloring, fairly clear with no trace of sediments. Flavor is all malts with very little bittering from hops, though the malts are decidedly more sweet than roasty. The palate is basically mild sweetness up front, and balanced middle, but a somewhat overly-sweet cloying finish in the back. There is no trace of the 8% alcohol, though if you drank a few of these, I’m sure the 1pt. 0.9oz of this easy drinking brew would kick in with a vengeance.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
The aroma is light with roasted dark malts, nuts, and corn. The appearance is mahogany with a small head. The flavor is sweet and very much like the aroma with a bitter, toffee like finish. The palate is thin. Overall this is drinkable.

16.9 deep coppery bronze color is not what i expected to see. light tan head is there and gone fast. sweet malt on the nose. light grassy aroma as well. caramel body and sweet malts are matched with prickly carbonation and saaz hop character. flavors are off here. honestly better than i thought it would be but not great by any means.

Bottle from Belmont Party. Poured a clear brown color with an average frothy off-white head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate fruity malt and alcohol aroma. Medium body. Medium bittersweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of short duration. Drinkable high alcohol brew.

Bottle: Mahogany brown, no head or lacing. Nose of fig, bright fruit and alcohol, some chewy dark malts. The flavor is similar and a bit of sherry, sweet and chewy. Toasty tail. Meh.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated 10/11/06: Another strong Lithuanian brew, this is not a stout as stated. I believe the usage of the word stout refers to "sturdy" or "strong" as in high abv. Pours a rich copper/amber with a constant thin head and medium lacing. Candy sweet aroma pleasant but stings the nose. Decent feel on the palate middle of the road, finish is interesting. Flavor is solid, this is my third Lithuanian beer and they have all had the candy like sweetness. Caramel malt is well hidden. This isn’t going to work for most people and I’m still undecided if I really like it or not, either way it’s a unique drink.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours a copperish orange with a modest, but short lived off-white head. Nose is very sweet with malt, hints of fruit, and a bit grassey. Bold, malt taste is a bit abrasive with the alcohol content. Dry, sour and a bit metallic.
