3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Light hues from the bottle. Slightly sour and earthy - like it was filtered through a cave and bottled at the mouth. Quite strong and surprising in that regard

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
(330 bottle from Csak a Jó Sör, Budapest)
Opaque and dark with a top-of-your-coffee head.
Aroma is dark bread, raisins, and dark cherries. Maybe a hint of
Plums in the mouth and a few of the raisins. Warming alcohol.
Not as full a mouth feel as it could have.
Slightly drying burnt finish. A tad hot, to be honest. Dark fruits.
Crank back the alcohol a bit, add a bit more body, and this would be
great. It has enough positives to merit a 3.3- anyway, I think.
Unusually, Phil did not share this.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours dark brown, almost black, with 0,5 finger head, which vanishes quite quickly. Aroma has bready maltness, but also a lot of alcoholy berries and a little bit of chocolate. Taste has alcoholy berries, rye-like breadiness, chocolate, but the liqueur-like alcoholiness is very dominant. Palate is very carbonated, sweet, alcoholic and quite warm. All in all, strange and alcoholic doppelbock, with berriness, but this tastes a little like berry liqueur with maltiness and hops. I’m still not too convinced about hungarian beers.

thought this was a stout but the aroma made me check the style, light sweet malts on the nose. appearance is black with no real head. Taste is light sweetness light bitterness light alcohol. Compared to the strength of the taste alcohol presence is too obvious. dry lagerish finish, medium body.
