Beer is a copper amber with no head. Almost looks like cider. Taste is malty, caramelly, dry, and watery. It has resemblance to an Oktoberfest beer but not as tastey. It also has an English cask ale flavor. In all it's a beer based off an old Lithuanian recipe which may have been brewed using hops, barley, yeast, and knowledge of Oktoberfest beers in Germany and Cask ales in England that the brewers just mixed a bunch of ingredients together with no knowledge of what they were brewing and basically brewed up a high potency cask ale Oktoberfest that the beer must be given over a 3 rating on its recipe.
It's a perfect beer to have at the end of Halloween night or beginning to mid November to give a cheers to the end of Oktoberfest marzens and pumpkin beers for the year.

Poured from a 16 OZ bottle into a pint glass. The appearance was a reddish color with a large white head. the aroma was malt and the taste was wretched. Maybe this beer had become contaminated. NOT Good at all.
This was a drain pour.

For a strong beer, this is pretty smooth. Lots of malt presence in the aroma and taste, some honey sweetness, some hay. Orange amber with small creamy head. Not as bad as expected.

Hazy dark amber with a one finger light beige head.
Sweet bread caramel aroma with a sweet dark fruit flavor.
Lower carbonation and maybe a little less than medium mouthfeel.
Yes, a bit too sweet but still fairly tasty for what it is nonetheless.

Appearance: Pours a deep hazy orange, with a one finger rocky light beige head.

Aroma/Flavor: Fruity, yeast driven aroma, with a touch of acetaldehyde. Some bready malt character as well. Malt character is more present on the palate as caramel and bread with aforementioned yeast character. Less green apple.

Mouthfeel: Medium+ body

Pours a hazy amber with a thin white head. Smell of raw sweet malt, peach, apple, dried, fruit, and candi sugar. Taste of candi sugar, sweet malt, apple, prunes, figs, dried fruit, and syrup. It is overly sweet with a moderate to full mouth feel.

It is great beer! I like almost exclusively Stouts with deep flavor and this is not that, and yet it is great, the flavor is rich with hints of honey and orange. Id love to have this on a hot day. THe 8.2% ALC by volume doesn't hurt either. If you are on the fence about this one pick it up it is fantastic!

Oddly reddish brown in color with a murky complexion. There's a trace of beige head mostly present around the rim of the glass and barely elsewhere. The aroma is rather off putting with loads of malt and alcohol. The flavor is packed with loads of malt and the alcohol is detectable. The mouth is sticky and chewy.

A little too sweet upfront and a lingering aftertaste. But not terrible and very strong. I'd have it again.
