One of the many 5 star ales from latvia, uzavas tumsais (Toom-shai-s, meaning dark) is a delicious concoction of pure deliciousness.
It doesn’t have a strong aroma or an especially memorable palate, but the flavor alone might just put this one in your top 5.

On keg at Lido in Riga. Pours a red - orange colour with a medium beige head. Aroma of bready yeast, caramel and light coffee notes. Similar flavours with a chewy mouth-feel. Lingering caramel and bready yeast characters. Moderate carbonation with a mild CO2 prickle.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Unfiltered on draught in Lido Centrs in Riga and others. This is one of those beers where rating the unfiltdand filtered version the same is daft, as there is a measurable quality differential - the filtered is 2.8 on my ratings. Chewy, toffee-laced, comfort beer that I could have drunk all evening.

Bottle. Deep golden colour with an off-white head. Aroma is fruit, malt, apple, hop. Flavour is fruit, malt, apple, hop, caramel. Medium body. Boring beer.
