As pale “Kanapinis” received great popularity, the dark version of this beer was brewed as well. For brewing of the beer, hemp seeds and roasted malt is used which gives rich dark colour and, upon tasting, caramel savour with distinct hop bitterness unfolds. NOTE: Since the end of 2016 hemp seeds are no more used in making of this beer.

SWING-TOP 1L. Hazy red, tan frothy head. Aroma of caramel, cherries, spicy hops, dry leaves. Some smoked cheese far behind. The flavour is similar, fruity with a zesty bitter finish. Smooth, silky mouthfeel. Despite the rustic feel to it, it feels quite clean.

UPDATED: DEC 28, 2016 Re-Rate Clear amber red color with medium tan foam. Aromas of sweet caramel malts, toffee and caramel its self with light earthy and herbal notes. palate, medium/light body with nice mouth coating smooth texture leaving long sweet finish. Taste quite sweet of caramel, very malty brew with touch of earthy hops folowed by light rye bread notes. Overall, quite nice sweet brew with some hops peresnt there too, simple but not watery and too boring. 6/30/2015--Aro-6 App-4 Tas-8 Pal-4 Ove-15 Nice dark amber colour. Foam is not too big and it is pale. Tastes nor too bitter nor too light somewhere in the middle and quiet simple but not too simple. Aftertaste was pleasent and inviting to have another one.
