3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

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...

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

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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 :)
