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).

LazyPyro (172) - Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 15, 2015
500ml can from Albinuța UK, imported from Romania. Black colour with a decent sized smooth brown head, slowly dissipating to a small one. Aroma of sweet, lightly roasted malts. Taste is prominently malts, almost overwhelming, and quite sweet, some fruitiness - In fact, if a malt loaf could be turned into beer, it would be like this. Light bitter aftertaste. Smooth and creamy mouthfeel. It’s a nice beer, but maybe a little too sweet and bready.

Kita (1590) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 25, 2015
Can, 0.50l, courtesy of Vlad, shared with colleagues. Pours pitch black with large soapy tan-like head and nice lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee, caramel and bread with mild smokey note. Taste starts with light sweet roasted malt, coffee and mild chocolate, following is bready sour with dry mouthfeel and mild bitter finish. Medium body, slick texture and average carbonation in palate. Surprise, surprise, didn’t expect it so good...

500Ml bottle, served almost everywhere in Brasov for about 1GBP. Aroma is malty, chocolate, caramel, hints of coffee, hints of fruit. Taste is well balanced, lightly sweet. Medium bodied, oily with a short, dry finish. A nice surprise.

vickey9 (825) - Brussels, BELGIUM - AUG 14, 2015
I am not much impressed by this stuff... Dark red brown or black with a creamy head. Nose is fruity but in palate there are also some artificial units. An average dark one. D@Caru cu Bere

Derek881 (1186) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUL 22, 2015
Poured from a can into a tall narrow glass to drink. The beer and a a thick black appearance with an average-sized creamy dark tan head with shorter retention, but decent cling and lacing. Its aroma featured notes of chocolate, bread, some earthy hops, and a little bit of grain. The taste had a subtle, sweet chocolate, bread, and grain mix with a slight earthy bitterness. The beer was pretty creamy and smooth with average carbonation and a very thick and wet mouthfeel. Pretty good overall.

mikkos (306) - FINLAND - JUL 7, 2015
0,5l can from somewhere in Romania. Really dark cola colored beer with smallish bubbly beige head. Aroma is dark bread, mämmi, chocolate, smoke, a but of ash. Taste is quite bready, a bit sweet, plums, fruitiness, hint of orange, espresso. Mouthfeel is a bit thin, co2 a bit higher than medium. Finishes sweet, smooth and a bit bitter. Rather good, better than expected :) ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown color beer with a frothy, big and lasting light brown head. Aroma is roasted malt with bread, caramel and alcoholic notes. Flavor is sweet, like toffee and caramel. Sticky dry end for a beer with an oily body and low carbonation.
