Stouty black with lumpy tan creamy head.
Tinny, acidic black malt nose with maybe a bit of ash.
Bit of coffee with sugar, some licorice sweets, metallic bite, and bit of marmite and some roast.
Tobacco leaf end and root beer barrel finish.
Med, round, lots of chewy residual sugars.

Maybe a bit too big and sweet but the roast takes a stab at balance. Again, hides the ABV like these other Romanians. Very much black, not brown.

Most like a Czech black lager.

Served in Sigishoara probably poured from a bottle.

Black opaque color with a cream colored somewhat solid head. Head manages to stay.

Smell of nut possibly chestnut but not much else, faint nose a bit weak.

Tastes like an average typical brown ale of sorts, not hoppy some malt perhaps on the palate, a bit too wet for my tastes in mouthfeel though. It is a pleasant taste, there is no excessive alcohol or anything unpleasant but some. It is very macro like tasting.

Easy drinking if that is your thing.

Almost black, ruby edges. Beige, creamy foam. Very beautiful.
Not too intense smell, but whit toasted malt and caramel well noticeable.
Same notes at the taste, stronger and more intense. Malt, caramel, toaste, liquorice, and a bit of bitterness.
The liquorice is longstanding in the mouth and aftertaste, not tiring, but rather giving the beer a good drinkability.
Overall, much more elegant and refined that expected.
Good surprise.
