Now "Nepasterizuotas" [Unpasteurized] instead of "Gyvas".
Surprisingly complex, layered beer with distinct notes of banana and toffee as well as (and much less of) the usual sugary caramel one would expect from a regional dark.

Medium beige head. Clear brown body. Earthy chocolatey cocos
aroma with fruity notes. Dry-acidic earthy chocolatey taste with
bitter roasty finish. Mid-bodied. Infected, and so
spoiled. (0.5l bottle, forget where from. BBD 2012-11-09, so
partly my own fault. Still, it shouldn’t have turned to vinegar
already. Will rerate if possible.

Bottle (Kauno Brewery, Kaunas)
Dark reddy brown, large tight beige head. Sweet fruity berry aroma, gently roasty, a little bit of toffee and coffee. Taste follows that closely, a well-balanced roast, sweetish, but not sticky. Smooth palate, decent carbonation. Finish gently burnt and bitter. Well rounded dunkel, very tasty.
