COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As pale “Kanapinis” received great popularity, the dark version of this beer was brewed as well. For brewing of the beer, hemp seeds and roasted malt is used which gives rich dark colour and, upon tasting, caramel savour with distinct hop bitterness unfolds.

SWING-TOP 1L. Hazy red, tan frothy head. Aroma of caramel, cherries, spicy hops, dry leaves. Some smoked cheese far behind. The flavour is similar, fruity with a zesty bitter finish. Smooth, silky mouthfeel. Despite the rustic feel to it, it feels quite clean.

Aroma: diacetyl, caramel, lactic acid, ammonia. Taste: unpleasant sweeteness, light sourness. Very bad with aroma of public WC. Sorry this is a really bad thing.

lokis333 (45) - LITHUANIA - JUN 30, 2015
Nice dark amber colour. Foam is not too big and it is pale. Tastes nor too bitter nor too light somewhere in the middle and quiet simple but not too simple. Aftertaste was pleasent and inviting to have another one.

thirstyrabbit (1433) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - MAY 20, 2015
1L brown glass swing top bottle. Opaque light brown body, small head. Rustic Lithuanian aroma with a pleasant bready roast. Sweet nutty taste with lactic hints and more soft roast. Oily mouthfeel and a bit low carbonation. Finish has some harsh wooden/herbal hops. Quite nice beer until the finish which is a bit unrefined. Also, please consider using reasonably sized bottles.

visionthing (3618) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 13, 2014
50cl bottle got as a gift. Pours hazy caramel brown with an off-white head. Malty and caramelly aroma with mild fruity notes and hints of wet wood and vanilla. Medium sweet with caramel dominated flavour, light acidity and quite balanced bitterness. On the sweet side, but quite tasty and easy to drink.
