3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark with an average head. The aromas are complex, which surprises me for a fairly mainstream beer (according to those I was drinking it with). Malts, a bit of burnt sugar and coffee-like notes appear in them. The flavour profile is better than many other Schwartzbier, caramel comes in very well balanced, with a nice palate too.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Dark beer with standar carbonation, brown head that dissipate quickly, at nose there are several yeasty notes that overcome on the expected malt ones, the flavor is quite good, lots of coffee and nuts flavours with a mild bitterness, but the overall balance is just ok. The aftertaste is quite metallic revealing the yeast again.

Along with Silva Bruna, one of the most solid commercial beers to be found in Romania. Pours a dense, dark colour with big, frothy light brown head that lingers for some time. Taste is full of coffee and a slight hint of caramel, walnuts and roasted malt. The alcohol could have been better masked and it will give you an awful hangover if you abuse it :)

0.5 l can. Very slight malty coffee aroma from the black colored liquid topped with beige head. The taste is similar roasted malts and hints of coffee but very watery, the finishing is short as well. Softly carbonated, light bodied.
