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.

MRMedellin (271) - Bogota, COLOMBIA - APR 22, 2016
Dark beer with standar carbonation, brown head that dissipate quickly, at nose there are several yeasty notes that overcome on the expected malt ones, the flavor is quite good, lots of coffee and nuts flavours with a mild bitterness, but the overall balance is just ok. The aftertaste is quite metallic revealing the yeast again.

arkanu (44) - Iasi, ROMANIA - APR 15, 2016
Along with Silva Bruna, one of the most solid commercial beers to be found in Romania. Pours a dense, dark colour with big, frothy light brown head that lingers for some time. Taste is full of coffee and a slight hint of caramel, walnuts and roasted malt. The alcohol could have been better masked and it will give you an awful hangover if you abuse it :)

midovark (262) - Balassagyarmat, HUNGARY - MAR 20, 2016
0.5 l can. Very slight malty coffee aroma from the black colored liquid topped with beige head. The taste is similar roasted malts and hints of coffee but very watery, the finishing is short as well. Softly carbonated, light bodied.

Not a good beer. Actually, not even a beer, considering the crappy ingredients used and the added ethylic alcohol, enzymes and additives.

This is black beer, with a intense aroma of coffee, lively carbonation. Quite surprised that have so many good reviews, because I’m not a big fan.

Lore (1942) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 28, 2016
dark brown colour, medium sized, very dense, creamy beige head; aroma of coffee, herbal liqueur, dried plum and raisins, some burnt woody notes and hints of caramel; taste is the same with less intensiveness; not a miracle, but good to drink

CanCrusher (854) - Ilirska Bistrica, SLOVENIA - FEB 25, 2016
Can 0,50L. Courtesy of Kita. Pours very dark ruby-brown color with big, frothy light brown head. Aroma of roasted malts, caramel, chocolate, nuts. Taste starts light sweet and chocolaty while finish is combination of light sweet and light bitter with cocoa and chocolate. Medium to full body, oily texture and soft carbonation. Suprisingly good!

LazyPyro (372) - Cheltenham, 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.
