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 :)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Not a good beer. Actually, not even a beer, considering the crappy ingredients used and the added ethylic alcohol, enzymes and additives.

This is black beer, with a intense aroma of coffee, lively carbonation. Quite surprised that have so many good reviews, because I’m not a big fan.

dark brown colour, medium sized, very dense, creamy beige head; aroma of coffee, herbal liqueur, dried plum and raisins, some burnt woody notes and hints of caramel; taste is the same with less intensiveness; not a miracle, but good to drink
