3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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.

Quickly disappearing head. Tastes more like a Baltic porter than a Schwarzbier - heavy taste, with strong roasty notes plus some ash. Not much bitterness. 50 cl can.

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

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.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
