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).

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.

triskaideka (210) - 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

gyllenbock (5666) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 20, 2009
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.

jimmay (807) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 27, 2010
500 ml can. Pours thin and black, with decent tan head. Aroma and taste are roasted malt and hint of chocolate. Very light body for a stout. Enjoyable though!

Glouglouburp (6104) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 19, 2012
In short: A sweet and sticky burgundy beer with liquorice and dark fruits flavors
How: Tap and bottle a few times in Transylvania/Romania
The look: Clear dark burgundy topped by a persistent small beige head
In long: Nose is black liquorice soft candy, bran muffin, notes of fresh tobacco. Taste is more of the same. Liquorice soft candies, black jelly beans, residual sugars, caramel, dates, figs, cookies. Medium body and medium carbonation. This beer is actually not all that bad beer when fresh on tap, however the beer has an oily sweet flavor that I just cannot drink in quantity, it therefore loses points for low drinkability. To give you an idea of the Romanian beer scene, this Ursus Black is currently the highest rated Romanian beer on with a current weighted average of 3.23 and an overall score of 74. So you can imagine the shit I was drinking in the weeks I spent there. On the positive side, my decision to spend my 2011 vacation in Romania was met by cheers and applause by every other nation on the planet.

Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2012
Bottle is better than draft with this one, generally...Is black, and nearly opaque with a stable tan head Very pleasant malty aroma if brown bread and mild chocolate Pure bready malts are creamy and smooth on the palate with lingering spice. Very nice.
