I lived in Albania for five years, and Korca i zeze was by far my favorite local beer. Hard to come by though, not found in many places. Nevertheless, this has a great taste and always goes down smooth.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Kolor ciemnej herbaty.
Piana obfita, średnio pęcherzykowa, beżowa. Ładnie koronkuje na szkle i bardzo długo się trzyma.
W aromacie ciemne słody, nuta palonego karmelu.
Nawet lekka nuta wędzona.
Nisko wysycone, bardzo gładkie, niemalże kremowe w odczuciu.
Niska goryczka, ale dość długa. Karmelowo-słodowa.
Zostawia lekki kwaskowy posmak.
Smakuje i pachnie jak typowy dunkel.

(33 cl bottle from minimarket in Saranda; bbd: August 2nd 2014) Pours a clear, dark copper with ample, tan head. Good retention and beautiful lacework. Aroma is pleasantly malty without having too much caramel sweetness present. The predominant aroma notes are biscuity and nutty with perhaps a hint of something darker akin to roasted malt, licorice, aniseed or perhaps a graham cracker. Never the less a pleasantly refreshing beer. Oily texture, soft carbonation with medium to light body and a slightly sweet, biscuity finish. Flavour largely follows the nose and it has something distinctively Czech to it - I wonder if it could be Saaz hops, which shine in this beer that is only a month old? An unexpectedly pleasant surprise.

Nice 2 finger foamy head.
Color is amber brown dark reddish.
Smell caramel, malts, hops, slight hint of chocolate and some spices.
Taste is a fine and soft mix of caramel, spices, malts, yeast, some sugars, a very slight hint of chocolate and hint of bitter and hop taste (just a very slight hint).
Soft (milk stout like density and softness) and smooth taste. Slight hint of nuts.
Drank it cold when it was warm, delicious beer (for Albanian standards).

Bottle from a restaurant in Durres. Poured a dark chestnut brown with a big frothy off-white head. The aroma is weak malt leading to a weak bitter, nutty flavour with a watery palate. Not the worst beer from Albania.

Very dark brown with minimal espresso-like head. Aroma of fresh baked bread! Taste gets coffee, roasted malts and caramel. Not too bad.
