Šio alaus gamybai naudojamas vanduo, šviesusis miežių salyklas ir karamelinis miežių salyklas, apyniai ir alaus mielės. Be to, dedama natūrali kvapioji medžiaga, kurios komponentai yra apelsinų, anyžių, gvazdikėlių, kardamono, cinamono ir šalavijų aliejai bei ekstraktai. Karamelinis salyklas suteikia alui kiek salstelėjusį, “pilną“ skonį bei sodrią tamsią spalvą, o švelniai juntamas žolelių prieskonis suformuoja išskirtines šio alaus juslines savybes.

Tamsusis su þolelëmis is made of water, light barley malt and caramel barley malt, hops nad beer yeast. Natural flavoring which ingredients are the oils and extracts of orange, aniseed, cloves, cardamom, cinnamon and sage, is also added. Caramel malt gives a slightly sweet, full taste and intense dark color while gently felt herbal tincture forms execptional aroma of this beer.

mzaar (2837) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2013
Flaska (Bambalyne, Vilnius). Samma smörkolaaromer som finns i stort sett alla litauiska öl doftar det även här ifrån. Dessutom knäck, hallon och svagt av citrus. Örtighet i smaken, men också fruktighet. Där hittas en fräsch, om än svag, syrlighet. Pepprighet i eftersmaken.

Grzesiek79 (4032) - Radom, POLAND - NOV 24, 2012
Piwo dość specyficzne, z dodatkami różnych przypraw oraz kilku odmian chmieli. Gożkie piwo i lekko kwaskowate, pikantne i ciemnawe, o kolorze herbaty. Polecane do dań mało doprawionych.

FatPhil (14122) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 17, 2011
330ml bottle (Bambalyne, Vilnius)
Super sweet super-ripe bananaey spicy, minty and clovey, sweet aroma. Like a banana caramel desert with a splash of underberg over it. Super smooth palate, soft carbonation, really lush in the mouth. Retronasals full of overripe banana. That level of ripeness normaly makes me gag, but this is lovely. Rich redy brown, small tight beige head. Lovely mellow sweet palate, spices prominant, but not dominating, a sweet dark roast backs them up , some caramel too. Finish has a lovely gentle tingle of bitter hops, which are a little papery, but quite whole. Super drinkable - asks to be sessioned.

TBone (16197) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 17, 2011
Bottled 330ml (Maxima, Vilnius, BB 11/2011)
Dark nut brown-ruby color, quicky vanishing off-white head. Aroma of sweet bun, caramel and berries. Medium-bodied, but thin palate. Clove spicey flavor, caramelly too with unclean diacetylic notes. Not very good spicey beer.

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - NOV 23, 2010
Aroma is super fresh, quite herbal (bit of juniper? forest/tree bark, other spices including pepper). The taste though is mostly cola-ish and caramel, with too much sweetness. I wanted more spice. Fine, but not what I was hoping for, which was more assertiveness. Lovely aroma. Good conditioning.

larsga (7313) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 10, 2010
Medium beige head. Deep red body with light carbonation. Spicy herbal cardamom aroma with gingery raisiny notes. Slick soft mouthfeel is slightly hot. Light body. Dryish mealy gingery chocolatey aftertaste with papery notes. Very nice. Delicate, unusual, and highly drinkable. (0.33l bottle, Bamb Alyne, Vilnius.)
