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).

This beer was brought to me from a co-worker returning from a trip to Romania. First and foremost thank you Delia for taking the effort of buying this beer and traveling with it half way across the world so I can try it. The Aroma was evident went I was decanting it from the can. I picked up bread, charcoal and spicy aromas with slight hints of fruit. The beer had a off white to a light brown frothy head that diminished leaving a small amount of tracing. The color was clear black that wasn’t transparent. Initial sip started out kind of sweet. Then a little sour. Finished with a heavy bread flavor with somewhat of a harsh and aftertaste. The palate was light with an oily texture and soft carbonation. I originally gave it an 11 out of 20 overall score. I’m going to change it to 12 because it came out of a can instead of on tap or out of a bottle and it traveled on a long journey.

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 (1119) - Riga, LATVIA - 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 (303) - 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.

Aroma: roasted malts, burned bread, cramel, very light wine notes. Taste: sweet, light to medium roasted bitterness, light sourness like roasted coffee. Flavour has some roasted coffee, light liquorice sweeteness, dark malts. Good roasted beer, maybe body is too light.
