500ml can -

First, a big thank you goes out to my buddy Brian for bringing me this back on his last trip to Romania. Those poor souls in Romania...ugh..some of the beers he’s brought back were good and others were just plain awful. This one was all that bad though. It suprised me with the level of hops that was found, with a bit of spicy hop note. The beer seemed overly attenuated, with a dry, chemical-like aftertaste. Almost no malt character, esp for a dunkel. Maybe the 7% comes from the extra sweetness that should be there? The beer looked like rusty rain water in my glass with a light tan frothy head.

For my 500th rating - a dark beer from Romania... Not too bad! Caramel and toffee beginning with a slightly bitter aftertaste.

Koelschtrinker (12464) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 7, 2011
Plump malzig-würziger Antrunk, in Ordnung aber bei weitem nichts Besonderes. Im Mittelteil noch etwas klebrig malzig, im Hintergrund wässrig und leicht schokoladig. Die Aromen dümpeln vor sich hin, nehmen aber im Abgang an Intensität zu. Die Malzigkeit bleibt klebrig, zum Schluss angenehm würzig. Test vom 12.8.2008, Gebinde: Dose Noten: 6,7,7,8,11,8 - 7,65

Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, quite stable off-white head; moderate sweet caramelly nose with roasty, coffeeish and fruity influences; moderate sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; slightly lingering drier roasty -fruity finish with a pleasant bitter aftertaste. Good, no doubt.....

Huge bottle in Targu Muresh, Romania at a cool little bar with grape vines over us. Dark cola pour with some amber highlights when held to the light. Nose is roasted malts, grains, some bitters, and a sour note. Taste is roasted malts, rather smooth, slight cream like feel. Brown sugar, caramel, toffee, and some burnt pancake.

heavy (2270) - Split, CROATIA - JUL 8, 2010
0.5 l can courtesy of Doggythedog, thanks for sharing! It poured darker amber body with small brownish head that went down slowly. Caramel, fruity and a bit licorice and very slightly alcoholic aroma. Sweetish fruity, slightly coffee flavor with strong presence of alcohol. Medium to fuller body with fine bitterish herbal and caramel finish. OK one, quite drinkable and pleasant for what it is and where it’s from.
