3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
19/08 0.5 l bottle at Timisoreana brewery restaurant. It poured dark brown to black body with medium to big head. Coffee, some roasted caramel, slightly herbal hoppy in aroma. Flavor is coffee driven, orange, grass, fine caramel notes. Some good quality malt used here surprisingly, and it’s not thin at all, though it had shorter, fruity sweet finish. Interesting and much better than expected on the place. And it’s a schwarzbier, not dunkel.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle at the Timisoreana brewery restaurant. Poured a clear, extremely dark red, almost black. Off white head. Sweetish nose, raisins and plums. Slightly cardboardy taste driven by dark malts and raisins. Slightly too fruity for its own good. Baltic Porter? Good one. Ok, but I expected more...

Bottle at a Rustic Pizza Restaurant an hour South of Cluj. I’m impressed with this beer! Full bodied, rich bitter (seemingly bitter) coco with an aftertaste that lingers. Very nice!
