Bottle in Brasov. Black with a large brown head.
Smell of coffee, burnt malt and chocolate. The flavor contained the same as the aroma, plus a decent bitterness. Not bad at all for being a Romanian beer.

Bottle (thanks mom!). Black-colored with a big brown head. Aroma of roasted malt with some light chocolate notes and dark bread hints. Sweetish roasty flavor with caramel, a bit of coffee and some metallic hints. Finishes dry with a bit of alcohol. Medium-bodied. Quite tasty.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled (BB 03/2009)
Very dark ruby color, mostly vanishing tan head. Brown sugar aroma. Fizzy carbonation. Suprisingly not really sweet .. there is some molasses, but mainly flavor is dry, cardboardish and slightly licoricey. Good for being Romanian beer, but I like Silva Dark more.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Ibis Hotel, Bucuresti. Opaque black body with low carbonation and a thin beige creamy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with roasty hints. Its hoppy taste is slightly misbalanced and ends with a short bitter/roasty finish. Not bad.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
*did not mind would not buy*
app: garnet pretty tan head, cute.. not majestic
smells like my pipe tobacco.. some chocolate as well, mild, decent..
taste: dark malt like malta goya, spritzyness in the beer that is not good. nice earthy dark malt raosty flavor, lil on the soy side, not much just a tad, its just not a coffee chocolate leaning stout.
mf: to thin to spritzed.
drinkable?: very.. not that great, but ok.. decent lil odd stout.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very good stout. Soft and simple but with almost all the elements you can look for in a stout.
Deep black color with a beige head almost nonexistent. No carbonation. Very intense and rich smell and aroma of roasted malt, wood, coffee, chocolate... Very refreshing with a great aftertaste. I only miss a better appearance (head and carbonation) and a bit of bitterness in the finish. Overall, good.

Very good stout! hearty with a slightly molasses aftertaste. Nice full, creamy head. If you did not know better you would think irish stout. This one’s a keeper!
