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.

Mahogany brown with thin head. Strong malty aroma almost whiskey-like. Flavour also has an intense maltiness with a touch of caramel and wood. Nicely bitter in the finish.

500ml can from a trade with dnicolaescu. Pours dark red with a brief tan head. Big aroma of roasted malts, caramel, sugar, coffee liqueur l. Taste is sweet caramel, coffee, a bit of booziness seeps through. Nice bitter finish.

This beer is Romanian and has a wonderful taste. I recommend it for a evening of decadent luxury.

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.

Sporym zaskoczeniem w Rumunii była czarna wersja Silvy, która mimo iż ma pochodzenie koncernowe, w swoim łagodnym smaku mimo alkoholu urzekła mnie i moich znajomych.

Clear deep amber appearance, medium head. Sweet roasted malt on the nose, plums. Dried fruit sweet taste, well balanced with alcohol. Decent Dunkler Bock style.

I echo these coMments:500 ml bottle, poured into a lager glass. Color is clear amber-brown. Head is big and foamy and has a beige color. Forms some decent lacing. Smell is dominated by roasted malt. Taste is sweet, malty with a slightly bitter aftertaste. Body feels light and is well carbonated. Overall this is a decent romanian beer. Definitely the best dark one. Well balanced and drinkable.
