2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

0,5 boks (takk til Petro!), på Action mars-15: klar rødlig rav med tett skum som varer. Mild aroma av maltsødme, fiken og overmodne solbær. Saftig smak med en lett tørrhet i avslutningen gjør den meget lettdrikkelig, og vitamininnholdet holder seg diskret i bakgrunnen.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can. Not enough body to be a proper bock. Some astringency in the finish hints at the alcohol part not being well hidden. On the other hand, the caramelly, light nutty profile with dried fruit notes is certainly not unpleasant. Not bad, all in all.
