COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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).

kerenmk (2371) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - APR 14, 2013
Draught at Berăria Ursus, Cluj, Romania, March 2013. Black with a quick dissolving tan head that leaves a ring. Sweet aroma - plum, marmalade, raisins, very faint roastiness. Tastes slightly fruity and very, VERY buttery - WTF?!?! Medium body, smooth texture, long, sweet and a little roasty finish. 7/3/5/3/8=2.6
Draught at Caru cu Bere, Bucharest, April 2013. Malty, caramel, bittersweet chocolate aroma, roasty, sweet chocolate taste. 7/3//7/3/14

JorisPPattyn (7908) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - NOV 12, 2010
Small dark-cream head over totally deep-dark amber beer. Very demure nose with dark malts, and something lactic. There’s another aroma, that reveals itself in the mouth as green apple. Main taste is sweet-neutral. All in all a pretty dim stout, but there’s worse around.

omhper (19370) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 10, 2011
Draught at The Gin Factory, Bucharest. Near black, brief head. Roasty coffee aroma. Sweet with some syrup and caramel, above medium bodied with clean mouthfeel. Syrup and coffee dominates. Fairly low bitterness. Akin to a roastier Dreher Bak.

Marko (3932) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - AUG 22, 2011
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...

Tim Webb (229) - Cambridge, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2012
50cl bottle in Sighisoara, northern Romania. I can see that the exotica politica could give this beer a leg up and it is by no means poor, but its dark allure seems to me to come more from molasses than skillfully blended darker malts. Plain and nice but not the top quartile in my view. And schwarzbier is a bit of a cop-out as the connections in this part of the world are with Scandinavia, so bokking it up a bit might bring more authenticity.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2008
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.

Canned 500ml. -Reddish brown coloured, medium sized brown head, sweet caramel nose. Slight roasted malt, caramel and brown sugar with notes of licorice and chocolate. A way too sweet beer.
