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.

MartinT (8135) - 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.

TaktikMTL (6021) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 27, 2012
Bouteille de 500 ml achetée chez Gramuté (Vilnius, Lituanie). Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales grillées. Apparence: La couleur est cuivrée-ambrée. Présence d’un mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de céréales grillées avec une pointe d’houblons. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de céréales en arrière goût. (Rating #4190)

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2012
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.

RexTalionis (2603) - FINLAND - OCT 25, 2013
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.

OleR (4802) - 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]

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - JAN 4, 2011
Cool orange-ish color. Nice head retention. Aroma is all soured hay, lactic, some fresh bread. Flavor is more sour on the scale than the lighter Kanapinis beer I’ve had in the 2L bottle. Has a soaked rye/pumpernickel bread flavor that I like, but it isn’t multiple flavors at once. These just keep lasting. Sessionable, duh. From Dejsk Piwa Regionalne; they seem to be stepping up their game to try to approach Piwoteka in selection.

halapablo (82) - Warszawa, POLAND - OCT 7, 2013
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.

omhper (19953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2014
Keg at Šnekutis Užupis, Vilnius. Hazy mahogany colour, rich creamy head. Fruity nose with coffee and bread. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Honey, caramel and coffee, light cellary notes. Low bitterness. Mellow and harmonious.

larsga (6319) - 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.)
