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.

Kita (1538) - Koper, SLOVENIA - AUG 14, 2015
Can, 0.50l, shared with colleagues. Pours clear dark brown color with thin creamy tan-like head and sparkling appearance. Aroma of caramel, roasted malt and grass. Taste starts with sweet caramel, follows by roasty undertones, mouthfeel is dry and alcoholic, while finish is moderate bitter. Light to medium body, sticky texture and lively carbonation in palate. Surprise, surprise, not bad at all...

mikkos (306) - FINLAND - JUL 15, 2015
Can from Romania don't know where. Clear reddish dark brown beer with a small bubbly beige I thin it was head. Aroma is sweet, malty, a bit syrupy, plums, dark bread, brown sugar, some liqueur tones maybe. Taste is sweet, some alcohol, dark bread, sweet bready malts. Mouthfeel a bit thin. Finish smooth and some bitterness. Rather ok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Holmen1 (3734) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAR 27, 2015
UPDATED: SEP 27, 2015 0,5 boks (takk til Petru!), 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. Ny boks (også takk til Petru!), delt med Willy på brygga. Vår felles konklusjon var at dette er en meget kompetent og nytbar bokkøl. Passet fint i høstsolen etter et sjøbad (14C).

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.
