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.

Light haze on this amber beer, small white head. Light and semi dry palate. Very sweet caramel malt with lots of paper and dryness. Touch of orange candied fruit underneath. Semi dry finish. An oversweet and papery mess.

KyotoLefty (7870) - Kyoto, JAPAN - AUG 24, 2013
Tap. Dark brown with a huge, fine head. Nose of chocolate, raisins, and some yogurt. Rich malt falvor, grass, caramel, sour edge. Weird and not so nice.

boxofrane (2438) - Spring City, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 9, 2013
Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a small tan head. The aroma is roast, rye bread, toffee. The taste is sweet, roasted malt, some caramel. Best part of this beer is the brewery name.. which I repeatedly called "Can of penis."

zenkis (677) - Ogre, LATVIA - JUL 15, 2013
Pours close to clear copper, beige medium top diminish fast, min lasing. Aroma - toasted malt mostly, some licorice and honey, maybe something like dark sugar as well. Taste - a bit roasted flavor, bitter above average, light sweet, a bit caramel-sugary, min sour in finish, light dry ending as well. Palate - medium bodied, watery texture, not very pleasant light sweet-bitter aftertaste, average carbonation, quite sharp flavor, too much roast goes out of balance.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 29, 2013
0.5 L bottle shared by larsga. Unclear copper colored body. Low dirty blond head. Rich caramel aromas, some toasted grain and a hint of fresh grass. Caramel-accented malt body. Peppery and toasted, and light acidic. Fruity yeast tones. Soft on the palate. Quite full. Nice acidity linger in the finish. Exciting stuff. A farmhouse Dunkel? [09.02.13]

500 ml bottle. BB 3 III 2013. From Lithuania. Ačiū Tautvydas!
Hazy dark brown colour with a small to average sized light tan head. Malt, yeast, honey, diacetyl and bread in the aroma. The flavour is much easier. There’s malt, bread, mild yeast and mild diacetyl. Some sweetness too. Drinkable. Soft carbonation.

ectuohy27 (762) - ESTONIA - JAN 22, 2013
Another solid, complex, bready, yeasty beer full of flavor from Panevezys Municipality, brought by Lithuanian houseguests. Uniquely non-sweet and non-hoppy, a pleasant change of pace indeed!

Grzesiek79 (3518) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 9, 2013
dobre i prawie rewelacyjne piwo. Wielka butelka 2litrowa robi wrażenie, etykieta skromna przy tak dużej butli z krachlą. Piwo po jej wystrzeleniu mocno dymi, aromat silny, jakby końska derka lub spocona skóra zwierzęcia. W smaku podobnie bo bardzo ostry i kwaśny smak, nie każdym przypadnie do gustu. Miłośnikom kwaśnych lambicków napewno przypadnie do gustu. Kolor przypomina raczej dzikie Ale niż dunkela.

larsga (6767) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2012
Medium beige head. Slightly hazy deep amber body. Earthy dusty strawy aroma with caramelly grainy notes. Dry-sweetish earthy roasty caramelly taste with dusty nougat notes. Mid-bodied. Mild, slightly hot, mealy mouthfeel. Dry dusty strawy roasty grain aftertaste with chocolatey earthy notes. Really nice and full of flavour. (0.5l bottle, from Bamb Alyne, Vilnius.)
