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.....

BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUL 26, 2010
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 (2349) - 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.

0.5l can courtesy of a friend who brought it from Romania (thanks Krešo!)
Poured a lovely dark amber-red body with a medium ochre head that went away relatively fast. Sweet fruity malty aroma, nice and strong. Dry bittersweet taste, coffee and caramel, licorice, quite bitter finish. The alcohol isn’t all that evident but it’s warming. A surprise I guess and a good beer, though definitely not something most would like.

armando629 (2453) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 27, 2010
0,5 l can as a gift.
Clear ruby beer with a nice foamy tan-light beige head that diminshes to a small lacing one. Toasted caramel and toffee, plum and raisins in the nose, light cocoa. Smooth mouthfeel, medium body with caramel, some toffee and roasted grains, cocoa. Roasted aftertaste on the tongue at swallow. Fine, it suggests to the hungarian Gösser Bock (litle bit easier, the GB is more roasted).

inbirraveritas (1417) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 2, 2009
0.5 l can from Déva. Reddish brown/mahogany colour, small pale brown head’s remaining, average carbonation. Roast-malt, fruity smell. Sharp and sweet taste, medium bodied. Flavour is a mixture of coffee-bitter and fruity sweetness. Light-bitter and dry finish. In opposite of the cans label, alcohol’s not knocking the head, it’s an easy drinkable and nice dunkel.

gyllenbock (6480) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2009
Can in Bucharest. Dark amber color with a white head. Aroma of caramel, fruits and some burnt malt.. Flavor was quite sweet. Ok aftertaste and bitterness. Clearly, a good beer compared to many of the other Romanian beers.

rozsoma (612) - Győr, HUNGARY - AUG 26, 2009
Még egy kiváló sör a Csíkszeredai főzdéből, bár ezt épp Déván sikerült megkóstolni, méghozzá csapra verve. Nagyon erős főzetről van ám szó, nem is bírtam egy pohárnál többet meginni belőle. Állaga már-már annyira szirupos, hogy össze ragad tőle a... szám. Illata is brutálisan erős és valami érdekeset sejtet, csak még nem tudom mi lehet az. De nem kell, sokáig várnom, ahogy megkóstolom, azonnal leesik a tantusz, hogy itt bizony dióról van szó. Én sem értem miért, de belepasszol az összképbe, úgyhogy elrágcsálgatom egy darabig, oszt lefekszem.

rickgordon (3846) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - AUG 2, 2009
Bottled, sampled at Bierhaus, Timisoara/Temesvár, Romania. Mahogany colour, pale white head. Lots of caramel and butterscotch (not diacetyl) in aroma. Flavour is loaded with butterscotch (not diacetyl) with licoricy suggestions. No malt focus in the body. One-dimensional Bock-style beer with low maltiness.
