Out of the commercial beers found on the Romanian market, this is the best dark beer to be found.
A bit sweet overall, but enjoyable maybe more in the cold season.

Looks good, tastes good, feels good! This is another example that Heineken can do very well with Romanian breweries (Ciuc, Silva). It is commercislly manufactured but at such a quality that you can still like and enjoy them. The bootle says: "Authentic Romanian Craft-Quality Beer" - well, it is almost like that! Feels almost like a craft.
Especially this Silva Bruna, this brown strong lager, all good and clean and crisp, no sickening euro lagers here! Talking about above average stuff. I think ut is worth giving them a try, it will worth it!

Creamy beige can head that trails over cherry brown body.
Toasty nose with some cherry stone.
Snap wheat crackers, some tin, light blonde toffee, brown pear, and mild spice to end.
Almond skin finish and yeasty linger.
Lt-med, creamy, slight cling.

Not as cloying at Timi Bruna. Nice silky body, too. This would be easy to session if the strength were a bit lower.

Most like a proper dunkelweiss.

0.5 liter can
Deep red, tan head.
Some dark fruit in the nose, with a little chocolate. Also an off-putting harshness most likely from the alcohol.
The same harshness on the palate, with some nice dark fruits behind it and a pleasant dry, bitter chocolate taste on the finish.
Not too heavy, not too carbonated.
Overall, kinda harsh but the underlying flavors aren't so bad. Quite unremarkable though.
