English (translation): As its name implies, the beer (style) originated in Belgium, and it was the first produced by the friars of small Belgian monasteries at the beginning of the early fifteenth century. Produced exclusively from the finest imported barley, strong and aromatic, amber in color, with an elevated percentage of alcohol - up to 8%.

On tap at 2.NSFZP. Pretty red/orange body with a big head. Very nice malty aroma with notes of orange, and the taste is similar, fresh, perfumey orange and maltiness. Good stuff!

Pint glass at the Black Turtle on Svetogorska. Hazy cherry wood, brown body. Thick bubbly head. Tart candy sweetness, red fruit, cherry and raspberry. Sticky sweetness, but finishes relatively cleanly with some bittering. Creamy, overtly sweet, but not really bad even. Missing carbonation but feels like there is some ale in there. Strange. This might be the best black turtle beer I’ve tried, and I guess ’closest to the mark’ they are aiming for when they tell us what style they are trying that I’ve seen. Head sticks around; a real ale finally? Any day, this was tasty.
