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.

4.4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
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?.

Head: beige, medium, frothy, low to average retention. Colour: chestnut red-brown, clear.
Aroma: malt, caramel, hops, slight roast, some dark fruit as it warms up. Taste: sweet, caramel, hops and/or roasted bitterness. There’s some alcohol when you first taste it, but then it disappears (evaporates?).
