Ursus Black, Ursus Breweries, Cluj Napoca, Romania – Ursus, or Bear, thus it is named after a Black Bear. Dark, nearly opaque, it is topped with a creamy colored head. Aroma is of dark bread, dark malts, and dark sugars. It presents a dark almost burnt character, offset by an intense sweetness and punctuated with a bit of licorice. Mouthfeel is similar to a Schwartz beer and seems light compared to the intense sweetness. Bitterness makes an appearance in the finish.
