3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
In short: A darker Lithuanian beer offering a stack of toasted hay with a light farmhouse character. Highly drinkable
How: Bottle 500ml. Consumed fresh the day of purchase, split 4-way
The look: Almost clear dark-golden body topped by a small beige head
In long: Nose has plenty of very toasted hay (a recurring theme with many Lithuanian traditional breweries), some cookies and light rural farmhouse character. Taste is once again very toasted, a bit of caramel and toffee, some roasted wood. Overall low sweetness sensation. This one is an average just a slightly above average Lithuanian Tamsus but I really dig the dryness and the super-toasted character of those Lithuanian darker ales. Very sessionnable. Another good Lithuanian beer with only bad ratings except those from some of my friends from Montreal, you guys are alright, I’ll kill you last.

Bottle 50 cl, BBE 12/2013. Pours hazy brown in color with a tan head. Sweetish
toffee, light notes of butter and slightly burnt bready notes in aroma. Toasted
bread, butterscotch and nutty notes in taste. Easy to drink with just the right
amount of flavors. Burnt dark breadyness with mineral notes in finish. I do like
this kind of interpretations of dunkels.

butelka z kapslem i oryginalną etykietą. Bardzo fajne piwko polecone mi przez kolegę Gediminasa z Kowna. Trochę za dużo karmelowego słodu ale ta świeżość rekompensuje wszystko. Wśród ciemnych litewskich piw przoduje choć pewnie nie da się tego wypić naraz za dużo żeby nie przesłodzić. Ocena wysoka i trzeba kupować.

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.

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.

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."

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
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?
