0,5l can, 24.11.2014, R3328642C16:16
Brown in the glass with a nice beige head. The nose is dry-malty, sweet. The beer starts very watery and slightly roasted-sweetish. Not much flavour. The mainpart is malty, dry, sweetish and watery. So the aftertaste.
Easy to drink with only a slight bitterness. --> 7/12/8/7

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pretty good dark--relatively clean, largely a one-note hit of toasted nuts with a slightly caramelly sweet finish. Uncomplicated compared to the style, but refined compared to the average macro from the region for sure!

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Creamy light brown head has about 2-3cm and lasts for around 3-4min at full height, after which it settles to around 1-2mm. At 7% alcohol level it is an excellent dunkel with hints of caramel and a slight bittery aftertaste. It’s in my opinion the best dark beer Romania has to offer, clearly above Ursus Black or Timi?oreana Brun?.
