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.

Ungstrup (37309) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2011
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has notes of straw, wet hay, and malt. The flavor is sour with notes of malt and wet hay, leading to a lemony finish.

joergen (27983) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 10, 2011
Bottle at Papsř. Hazy orange coloured with a medium sized off-white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of varamel, berries and spices with notes of lactic acid. Fruity flavour of berries, spices and lactic acid. Tart finish.

anders37 (26227) - Malmö, SWEDEN - NOV 27, 2011
Bottle @ Papsř. Pours a hazy pale orange color with a small off-white head. Has a fruity malty grainy aroma with yeasty hints. Fruity malty grainy lactic flavor. Has a fruity malty yeasty weak lactic finish.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of Schroppfy. Pours a cloudy amber with a lacing off-white head. The nose has a little exotic fruit and dryish(!) caramel accents. Light body, again this interesting lactic tartness. Overripe fruitiness, rustic metallic notes with a dry finish. Again hardly any hops. Very far from what you’d normally associate with a Dunkel! 080911

omhper (24973) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 27, 2014
Keg at Šnekutis Užupis, Vilnius. Hazy mahogany colour, rich creamy head. Fruity nose with coffee and bread. Mid sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. Honey, caramel and coffee, light cellary notes. Low bitterness. Mellow and harmonious.

Light haze on this amber beer, small white head. Light and semi dry palate. Very sweet caramel malt with lots of paper and dryness. Touch of orange candied fruit underneath. Semi dry finish. An oversweet and papery mess.

FatPhil (15966) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 9, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 28, 2014 500ml bottle (?, Vilnius) (5:4:5:3:10=2.7)
Deep copper, almost no head. Simple malt aroma. Minerally taste - chalky. Dry, a touch too minerally. Passable beer, but not exciting me.
Rerate: 500ml (Olu Volu, Tartu) (6:4:6:4:12=3.2)
Pours with a sweet cakey aroma, very malty, a little mashy in the glass, just a little hint of liver once or twice, but sweet raisiny cakeyness, and even kali/kvass-like aspects, dominate that. Nice dark copper, small tight beige head. Smooth palate, pleasant carbonation. Rich sweet taste, again a little raw and kvassy., but again has a little bit of liver in its graininess. Anna says it’s a little vegetal, but I’m not getting that. Feels a bit watery, this could be made a bit bigger, all the way to doppelbock levels. Much nicer this time. Useful rerate.

Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2011
Bottle at Papsř’s - Thanks. Cloudy amber - white head. Lactic acid, sourness, fruity notes, toasted, knćkbrřd, nutty. Not sure why !!!

bierkoning (13278) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 3, 2011
Bottle from Schroppfy, thanks! Pale amber color, cloudy. Peach and pear in the aroma. Tart flavor with lemon, canned peach and pear. Metallic and yeasty notes. These Lithuanian beers really are something else. But in a pleasant way.
