Probably the best dark beer you can find in Romania, great aroma, complex palate and an awesome first and overall taste.

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

bytemesis (2610) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Can. Pours clear chestnut, small fizzy tan head, dissipates quickly, some lacing. Aroma is light nutty, caramel, toffee. Flavor is similar, but harsh, burned, lightly smoky, unappealingly bitter, chemical. Medium body, flat carbonation.

ectuohy27 (520) - 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 (9) - München, Bavaria, GERMANY - OCT 14, 2013 does not count
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?.

Can. Thanks bigbro. Pours clear auburn with a large, creamy, off-white head. Aroma has sweet malts, nuts, roasted sugars, liqourice. Medium to low carbonation, fine dry and fairly light mouthfeel. Flavour is dry, caramel, toasted, quite fine liqourice notes from the sugar. Quite alright.
