ciocanelu (594) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - APR 24, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2015 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.

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

ectuohy27 (869) - ESTONIA - DEC 22, 2013
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!

Dark brown color with medium beige head. Aroma of caramel malt, coffee. Taste, caramel malt, burned sugar, dried fruit, wood, coffee. Light bitterness in finish, but alltogether too sweet for my taste.

RaduLuchian (48) - München, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2013
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?.
