crossovert (9585) - Illinois, USA - AUG 13, 2015
41 cl embossed bottle. 5.8% abv.First of this is the best packaging of any beer ever. it past its best by 10 days ago. Pours an amber color with a fizzy head. Aroma is oxidized dark frutis, those jelly filled raspberry hard candies you find at nut shops too. Falvor is nutty dark fruits, definitely oxidizes, herbal skunky hop character. Nothing too special inside this immaculate packaging.

lokis333 (77) - Biržai, 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 (1464) - 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 (384) - 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.

tomer (2253) - 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.
