500ml can from a trade with dnicolaescu. Pours dark red with a brief tan head. Big aroma of roasted malts, caramel, sugar, coffee liqueur l. Taste is sweet caramel, coffee, a bit of booziness seeps through. Nice bitter finish.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Not enough body to be a proper bock. Some astringency in the finish hints at the alcohol part not being well hidden. On the other hand, the caramelly, light nutty profile with dried fruit notes is certainly not unpleasant. Not bad, all in all.

Sporym zaskoczeniem w Rumunii była czarna wersja Silvy, która mimo iż ma pochodzenie koncernowe, w swoim łagodnym smaku mimo alkoholu urzekła mnie i moich znajomych.

I echo these coMments:500 ml bottle, poured into a lager glass. Color is clear amber-brown. Head is big and foamy and has a beige color. Forms some decent lacing. Smell is dominated by roasted malt. Taste is sweet, malty with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Body feels light and is well carbonated. Overall this is a decent romanian beer. Definitely the best dark one. Well balanced and drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours dark brown with a dense medium-lasting beige head. Aroma is weak - hops and slightly sweet malt. Taste is bitter forward, but balanced by fair sweetness. Flavors are strong of slight hops and malt, with a gentle and somewhat citrusy sour tang. Some weak roasted notes. Mouth feel is watery with nice medium carbonation and strong tang in tongue from hops and carbonation. Ending is clean, but tang in tongue remains for a while. Overall, nicely balanced, not too heavy , and good to drink as part of a meal. Nice.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours a clear light brown color, topped with a nice and solid tan colored head.
The aroma is mild but easy to pick up. Malts, biscuits and caramel can be felt.
The taste is strong, bitter with a bit of (unpleasant) alcohol taste, but it finishes with a nicely bitter and caramely finish.
A very decent beer of strong taste.
