iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUL 27, 2008
Can, Diesel Bar, Cluj-Napoca. Very dark pouring, and an immediate hit of liquorice and caramel on the tongue. A strong beer but not overly strong tasting of alcohol. Long finish.

Chestnut brown color, small beige head. Alcoholic, caramelly, toasted nose. Caramelly rounded mouthfeel. Quite pleasant balance of alcohol, toasty malts and sweetness. This is a bit like Saku Tume. So far the best Romanian beer I’ve had.

Eructoblaster (2851) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 11, 2008
On tap at Cerdul Carpati, Brasov. Nice brown body with a fair beige creamy head. Malty taste with caramel, fruity, and roasty hints. Taste, however, lacks complexity and is rather thin. Ends with a short bittersweet finish.

For me the caramel taste is perfect. No taste of any fruits there ... some comments speak about this :) Its perfect for a sunset on mountain.

Ando brought back a shlew of Romanian beers from his recent European excursion. I’m told Romanian beer can be a real special treat. Here’s hoping! Apperance: Pours a clear, dark brown body with a lush, fizzy off-white head. Smell: Bready dark malt aroma of caramel and molasses. Hint of almonds. Taste: Mild caramel and molasses flavors with a moderate sweetness. Again, there’s that hint of almond. There’s only a very vague hint of hops. Ultimately, the beer finishes pretty sweet. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: It’s okay, but so far the clear-cut winner of Romanian Beer Nite!

*did not mind would not buy* app: fine but not pretty smell: sweet malt earth molasses kinda thing, light .. weak, too sweet. taste: mild, brown beer.. like an amber bock from miller.. BUT with a nice pleasing after taste that actually hints at quality. mf: fine.. a bit coating in the back drinkable?: sure. not amazing but ok.

Gr0ve (2113) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 30, 2007
500 ml bottle. Dark copper colour. Tall light beige head. Clear. Licorice aroma. Distinct münchener malt and licorice aroma. Roasted character. Hints of coffee. Quity syrupy and sugary. Strong alcohol character, but without dominating the overall picture. Clean sharp neutral hops. Almost no aftertaste.

Big yellowish brown coarse lasting head. Dark red-brown body with carbonation. Sugary caramelly aroma with papery notes and a touch of wood. Sweet roasty caramel taste with spicy papery notes. Kind of watery. Short taste, fades out quickly. Papery taste lingers. (0.5l bottle at Old Centre Bistro in Brasov.)

UPDATED: APR 27, 2008 Silva Black, my friends. And to my friends in Romania, Silva Bruna. This is hands down one of the best Romanian beers I have had. Being a beer enthusiast in Romania isn’t easy.This is a dark bock with deep roasted caramel flavor. You have to head north to Hungary, Czech Rep, and Poland to find this style done perfectly. Another beer of this style is Ursus Dark. Enjoy!
