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.
50cl Can. Pours a dark brown color with a small off-white head. Has a faint roasted malty caramel aroma. Roasted malty caramel and dark fruit flavor. Has a roasted malty chocolate and dark fruit finish.decent anders37 (26657) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2017
Can. Pours a dark brown color with a small off-white head. Has a roasted malty caramel aroma. Roasted malty caramel and dark fruit flavor. Has a roasted malty chocolate and dark fruit finish. geolgau (248) - Cluj-Napoca, ROMANIA - FEB 20, 2017
On can. Pours dark brown, with a rich, brown-ish head.
Aroma is not that great: roasted malt, left-over coffee, even hints of soy sauce. But you can feel a bit of hopiness going around. After it rests a bit in the glass it gets better: caramel, brown sugar, and the coffee aroma is more pronounced.
Taste is sweet, with a slight hint of bitterness. Flavors that come up: roasted coffee, toasted brown bread, malts. Alcohol feel is slightly higher than 6%.
Oh, and as I recall from my college years, more than 2 cans give me one memorable headache in the morning. evergreen0199 (3369) - Northwood, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 9, 2017

Nasycenie ?rednie, idealnie sprawdza si? w tym piwie.

- dark brown to black pour with beige head. Sweet bready toasty malty, with some caramel, slight cocoa, hoppy backing, toasted malty close. Decent.
Bottle 500 ml (clearly better that the canned version of this beer)
Dark brown colour with a fluffy beige head. Aroma is of roasted malts, candy sugar and some yeast.. Taste of roasted malts, dark chocolate, candy sugar and some mild bitterness. Toasty! Refreshing finish. Not very complex but surprisingly tasty or a macro. Philip Nollander (2) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2016 does not count
Several cans in Romania. Great beer to drink on the beaches of the Black Sea. Also in the forest or around campfires. Affordable and has an amazing honey/caramelly taste and nice dark color. I hope to find it again.
