0,5 l bottle as a gift.Hermod (7936) - Vantaa, FINLAND - MAR 26, 2011
Deep mahagony reddish color with a nice foamy tan-light beige head. Caramel and biscuit in the nose with nice fruits like wild berries, fig, raisins and yeast. Smooth mouthfeel with a balanced body, biscuits again with caramel, fruits and honey, some spicy ginger, a bit of grassy hop in the finish. Nice surprise!
50cl bottle. Poured red/dark amber color with a fluffy head. Caramel sweet malty aroma. Flavor is sweet caramel malty mostly, found it better than I had expected it to be, thought it would be much sweeter than it actually was. Not something I will buy again though.

500 ml brown bottle.
It pours a pale amber/orange with a fizzy white head that quickly dissipates with no head.
The smell is fruity, there is a bit of spiciness, perhaps form the hops, and some caramel sweetness.
The flavor is sweet, with hints of oxidized apple, some nuttiness, alcohol, and a huge hit of caramel. There is also some hint of golden raisin. It is interesting for the style, but it could be better.
Overall it is interesting, but maybe not worth a second try, it was cheap though.

Medium, amberish tinted head over foxy-amber, clear beer, well-carbonated. Caramel, almonds, marzipan, childrens’ sweets, artificial aromas. Roasted flavour, with a short dry bitterish main taste, a somewhat sticky, marzipan-like suite, but with a harsh metallic end. Slight stickiness, watery feel. Dry aftertaste. The coloursyruppot, and that’s it. Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2011
A little on the light red-colored side for a tamsuis, but in the range. Nice head. Sweet and sour, caramelly elements in the flavor mostly. Slight hop skunk (pepper/spice) in the aroma, but mostly grainy, a little rind. Aroma quite a bit better than flavor. Slippery, almost to oily mouthfeel; this negative palate aspect detracts from the beer. Drinkable for a mass produced product, but nothing like the natural dark Lithuanian beers from some of the smaller breweries. Very fresh (BB Oct 2011). BeerBaboon (2095) - FINLAND - FEB 9, 2011
Tumentuneen kuparin värinen olut keskirunsaalla vaahdolla. Karamellinen ja hedelmäinen tuoksu. Maussa on makeutta, pientä katkeruutta, karamellia ja hedelmäisyyttä. Kulauksen jälkeen suuhun jää öljytty tuntuma. Melko hyvä olut, josta paras terä jää kuitenkin puuttumaan. Aika tasapaksua kamaa. dyetube (1378) - Hurst, Texas, USA - FEB 6, 2011
Bottle from kegs and barrels. Thus beer pours a rich red with a thin off white head. The aromas are bread, nuts and musk. The mouthfeel is bready and slightly sweet with a dryness and heavy body. Not a great beer.
