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.

Pours copperish with a decent white head. The aroma has some malt notes. Flavor has a maltiness to it and lttle in the way of hops.

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.

jake65 (2616) - Williston, North Dakota, USA - APR 21, 2007
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.

16.9 oz bottle-A hazy orangish amber body with a nice white head. Has a floral aroma with a little alcohol. Taste of sweetness, grass and finishes witha bit of an alcohol kick. I was expecting worse but it is not bad.

So I starts to pour this into a glass, and imagine my surprise as I find a Lithuanian beer that isn’t yellow! This "stout beer" (???... see Comm. Desc.) pours a bright copper color with faint carbonation and a fast head of an indeterminate, "light" color. Light vegetal and latex paint aromas fade to a base of sweet, caramel malts. Flavor holds a much more solid malted character and is sweet without being cloying. MIld hops finish. In the end, I’m quite impressed. <applause>
