Canned (Thanks TBone!). Deep rubyish amber colour with mediumsized beige head. Leaves quite nice lace. Aroma is raisins, syrup, caramel malts and some mild notes of sour wood. Flavour is slightly smoked wood, syrup, mild alcohol and some slight grassy dryness. Way better than I thought when I saw the can.

Koelschtrinker (16443) - 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

Can. It pours a dark brownish golden body and a dense but small, light beige head. Lightly caramel and choclate smelling, with a light almost buttery hint, in a pleasant way. Pleasant carbonation, medium to full body, with flavors of caramel, roasted malts notes, some chocolate hints and a faint touch of alcohol. Pretty much the same in the end. Didn’t expect a beer this good from Romania. 120516

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.

Light brown with no head. The aroma is caramel, maybe some nuts. The taste is sweet, with caramel. The body is thin, and the alcohol begins to seep through as it warms. Nowhere near as good as its competitor Ursus Black.

bierkoning (12193) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2008
Thank you Tbone, for providing me with a new country! Can. Dark brown color. Molasses and apple syrup in the aroma. Sweet, grainy flavor with apple syrup, a hint of chocolate and caramel. Watery mouthfeel, yet medium bodied. This beer has quality problems.

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.
