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.

MartinT (8550) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Toasted and toffee malt flavors produce a simple but still compelling example of a Lithuanian Tamsus.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the deep amber.
-The flavor profile is balanced out by wooden hops and their light bitterness.
-This is very drinkable.
-The intensity and length of the toastiness is nowhere near that of Davra’s Varniuku, for example.

Bottle.

FatPhil (10892) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 9, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 500ml bottle (?, Vilnius) (5:4:5:3:10=2.7)
Deep copper, almost no head. Simple malt aroma. Minerally taste - chalky. Dry, a touch too minerally. Passable beer, but not exciting me.
Rerate: 500ml (Olu Volu, Tartu) (6:4:6:4:12=3.2)
Pours with a sweet cakey aroma, very malty, a little mashy in the glass, just a little hint of liver once or twice, but sweet raisiny cakeyness, and even kali/kvass-like aspects, dominate that. Nice dark copper, small tight beige head. Smooth palate, pleasant carbonation. Rich sweet taste, again a little raw and kvassy., but again has a little bit of liver in its graininess. Anna says it’s a little vegetal, but I’m not getting that. Feels a bit watery, this could be made a bit bigger, all the way to doppelbock levels. Much nicer this time. Useful rerate.

Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of straw, wet hay, and malt. The flavor is sour with notes of malt and wet hay, leading to a lemony finish.

Papsoe (25073) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of Schroppfy. Pours a cloudy amber with a lacing off-white head. The nose has a little exotic fruit and dryish(!) caramel accents. Light body, again this interesting lactic tartness. Overripe fruitiness, rustic metallic notes with a dry finish. Again hardly any hops. Very far from what you’d normally associate with a Dunkel! 080911
