COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
URSUS Black nu este o bere brună obișnuită. Povestea ei începe nu cu unul, așa cum au berile obișnuite, ci cu trei tipuri de malț toate 100% pure. Iar în povestea ei, fiecare malț are rolul lui: unul dă gustul, altul dă culoarea, pe când al treilea conferă aroma. Gustul blând, nu foarte amărui (23 unități de amăreala), și cele 6 procente de alcool îi dau personalitatea unică. Așa că URSUS Black cu trei tipuri de malț, e altfel decât orice altă bere brună.

URSUS BLACK a fost medaliată de trei ori la competiția European Beer Star (Germania).

This beer was brought to me from a co-worker returning from a trip to Romania. First and foremost thank you Delia for taking the effort of buying this beer and traveling with it half way across the world so I can try it. The Aroma was evident went I was decanting it from the can. I picked up bread, charcoal and spicy aromas with slight hints of fruit. The beer had a off white to a light brown frothy head that diminished leaving a small amount of tracing. The color was clear black that wasn’t transparent. Initial sip started out kind of sweet. Then a little sour. Finished with a heavy bread flavor with somewhat of a harsh and aftertaste. The palate was light with an oily texture and soft carbonation. I originally gave it an 11 out of 20 overall score. I’m going to change it to 12 because it came out of a can instead of on tap or out of a bottle and it traveled on a long journey.

500ml bottle. Very nice, dark brown beer with an impressive foam. Quite malty, medium bodied but not too heavy and not too alcoholic. It is a good balanced beer.

Though Ursus Black is a simple dark beer, thus most these examples are successful, it has an empty bar for aroma and palate.

The beer is tasteful enough for the low price and 0.5l bottle. You will enjoy the medium bitterness and the dizziness also :)

Thomasalias (320) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JUN 9, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 12, 2012 0,5l can as gift from Romania. Beautiful, clear, deep brown color with creamy, medium, brown head. Coffee and roasted malty aroma, typical dark lager. The flavours of the Carafa malt dominates. Basicly light bitter taste, but later some sweetness appears. Light to medium body, creamy texture, lively carbonation. The sweetness continues in the aftertaste, and it is finished with a roasted malty flavour. Delicious, light, but tasteful beer. Drinkable, good for every day.

Can. A dark red-brown beer with a brown head. The aroma has notes of caramel, bread, and roasted malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of bread, metallic hops, alcohol, and caramel, leading to a dry roasted finish. Thanks yespr for sharing.

Pinball (10779) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 23, 2012
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2012 clear brown, smooth light brown head. mild malty aroma, dry. flavor is pretty messy mix of bitter malts, bitter caramel, plastic and a slightly tart sour note. also tried a bottle and that one was a lot clearer in the flavor. no plastic, no tart sour note, but perhaps a roastiness that could be interpreted as almost sourish/tartish. flavor 4->6, overall 8->13
