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).

kerenmk (3239) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 14, 2013
Draught at Berăria Ursus, Cluj, Romania, March 2013. Black with a quick dissolving tan head that leaves a ring. Sweet aroma - plum, marmalade, raisins, very faint roastiness. Tastes slightly fruity and very, VERY buttery - WTF?!?! Medium body, smooth texture, long, sweet and a little roasty finish. 7/3/5/3/8=2.6

triskaideka (235) - Killarney, IRELAND - MAR 6, 2013
Bottle in Bucharest. Pours black with brown/tan head. Caramel flavours with the dry stout-like bitterness. Something like a porter and none the worse for that. Recommended

armando629 (2448) - Budapest, HUNGARY - DEC 30, 2012
0,5 l can as a gift.
Deep brown near black one with a froathy medium tan-light beige head. Aroma of sourish yeasts, some burnt wood and roasted grains, liquerice, caramel. Medium bodied one with some roasted grains, moderated ash and burnt wood, sourish yeast. Not bad - not good.

Oakes (13537) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 28, 2012
Dark brown with a thin head. Malt-forward aroma is clean molasses and caramel. Rich caramel, more like a Baltic porter than anything else, but not quite that either. Finishes sweet with earthy liquorice notes. The only serious go-to beer in Romania.

inbirraveritas (1350) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 17, 2012
Canned. Clear deep dark brown/ruby in colour with a creamy beige head. Cara-malty nose and aroma escorted by bread and mild chocolate underpainted by roasted malt. Some fruity accents appearing, too. Nice creamy mouthfeel. Sweetbitter and gently warming finish with coffee and breadcrumb. Nice, enjoyable.

Tim Webb (270) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2012
50cl bottle in Sighisoara, northern Romania. I can see that the exotica politica could give this beer a leg up and it is by no means poor, but its dark allure seems to me to come more from molasses than skillfully blended darker malts. Plain and nice but not the top quartile in my view. And schwarzbier is a bit of a cop-out as the connections in this part of the world are with Scandinavia, so bokking it up a bit might bring more authenticity.

50belair (2955) - Florida, USA - AUG 29, 2012
Can. Dark brown/black pour with a tan head. Roasted malt aromas. The body and carbonation are good. Nice roasted malt and bitter chocolate notes with just a hint of cola. To be honest, I did not have expectations and am pleasantly surprised...
