thirstyrabbit (1410) - Tallinn, - DEC 27, 2012
410ml bottle; 5,8%. Dark copper body, minimal head. Aroma has dark malt and very light red wine. Caramelly taste with some cherry and red berries. Low hoppiness. Not dark roasty and hoppy like you would expect a Dunkel to be. If you came for that you’ll be disappointed. It’s more like a fruity Vienna.

lokis333 (10) - LITHUANIA - JUN 30, 2015
Nice dark amber color with slightly darkish foam, tastes slightly bitter and dark as the name suggests, it is very pleasant and smooth dark beer to drink and the bitterness for this one is not an overkill.

jjsint (1334) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JUN 11, 2015
Bottle at Bambalyne, Vilnius. Light brown, translucent. A trifle insipid-looking. Intense chocolate malt aroma. There isn’t much else in the nose but there doesn’t need to be. Likewise, the taste is straightforward yet profound. Massive malt hit, sweet, with notes of milk chocolate and freshly roasted coffee beans. The alcohol makes its presence felt in the finish. Palate is a bit thin, and I’d have liked more carbonation. Still very good.

Manslow (368) - Warsaw, POLAND - MAY 20, 2015
Kufel pite na Litwie podczas wyprawy rowerowej. Kolor czarny, piana ciemnobrązowa, gęsta. Aromat karmelu i kawy, smak czekolady i karmelu, wysycenie średnie. Bardzo pijalne piwo o łagodnym, dobrze ułożonym smaku.

Kavu (2817) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2015
0,33l bottle from a supermarket in Kaunas. Pours clear deep amber with a low off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts with some dark fruits. Flavor is roasted malts, dark fruits, nutty notes and a slightly hoppy finish. Decent.

tomer (2131) - Rishon Le Zion, ISRAEL - FEB 8, 2015
At a tasting, thanks Stas, small bubbly off white head, clear brown color with a hint of reddish hues, honey caramel aroma, flavor of grain and hay with a hint of caramel and a suprisingly strong sourness. Not too good.

DSG (8324) - Tel Aviv, - FEB 6, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Max’s place. Thanks Stas. 5.8%. Clear deep amber with a beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, licorice, a bit of nuts, a roasty hint and a light alcoholic note. Sweet flavor with caramel, licorice and a roasty hint. Medium-bodied.

Hoppy_Luke (623) - Poznań, POLAND - FEB 3, 2015
Kiedy ostatniego dnia wakacji okazało się, że skończyły mi się przywiezione piwa, podjąłem drastyczną decyzję - idę do sklepu i kupuję co będzie... Na szczęście trafiło się coś innego niż produkty trzech największych... Nie wiedziałem, co to będzie, ale wziąłem w ciemno! Okazało się, że to całkiem przyzwoite piwo. Czarne, nieprzejrzyste z ładną, beżową pianą. Pachniało przyjemnie czekoladą i nieco kawą. I takie też było w smaku. Kawa delikatna i mocniejsze nuty czekoladowe. Do tego moc odpowiednia, małe wysycenie i piło się naprawdę przyjemnie. Przyzwoity napitek z Litwy!

Keg at Crown Plaza, Vilnius. Clear dark brown, small head. Coffee and metal up front. Mid sweet, medium body, clean hard mouthfeel. Syrup and chocolate. Metallic finish. Sharp.

01.08.14, Bottle 0,44 l, local grocery store in Dziwnów, Poland. Brązowe piwo z cienką, puszystą, beżową pianą oraz słodowym zapachem. W smaku gładkie, palone z łagodną goryczką na finiszu.

All Vilkmerges beers i tasted were decent. This one is full of bread and caramel aromas. Maybe a little "earthy". Slight sweetness.
