3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 Light brown color with nice off-white head that leaves some lacing.
Smell is dominated by roasted malts.
Taste follows the aroma. Just malt, no hop character.
Soft body with just the right amount of carbonation.
Overall this was a decent beer. Highly drinkable.

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
courtesy of Dorin - light hazy amber beer under a solid creamy beige foam; light earthy aroma with metallic and sourish notes; sourish palate, moderate malt body, short earthy and gently caramelish aftertaste - bad and very surely past its prime

Nice deep nutty color with a fine tan head. Ok lacing. Coffee, candy and caramel aroma. Medium body. Unusual good for a beer at 4.3%. Moderate sweet and a fine bitterness. Average carbonation. Nice rich flavor with coffee, vanilla, caramel and toffee. Nice one Moldova.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Many thanks to dnicolaescu for this bottle! Malty and dry beginning. Nice and smooth, not too full-bodied, but nice bitter till the end. Hints of nuts, quite dry. Roasted malt without the caramel-sweetness. The aftertaste is quite dry, hints of roast, but not too much body. Easy to drink. Mild and moderate aftertaste, not too bitter, dry-malty with roasted nuts, but not too intense. Interesting!
