3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
bottle. slightly oxidized nose of cardboard, dust, stale plum, light char with moderately strong dark fruit esters. medium-thick body, low acid and bitterness with medium-high sweetness (black cherry, plum, light burnt apple) and an inky tar character, but all rather muddled and dulled by the yeast. obviously not in perfect condition, but i feel that even if it were I’d not consider it one of the best beers out of Hungary.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2012 0,33l bottle from Sörspecialista, Budapest. Clear ruby color with minimal beige head. Nice coffee, caramel, alcohol and fruit (prunes) aroma with some roasted malt. The alcohol is too dominant. Dry, medium bitter-sweet taste. Full body with creamy texture and lively carbonation. Long fruity alcohol roasty finish. It’s a very good beer. It’s a transition between the taste of stouts and doppelbocks. It’s a promising attempt from a small Hungarian brewery.

not my favourite beer style but this is kind of good. arome is like other doppelbocks. the flavor is light to medium and it has a very dry and winy after taste which makes this beer good.

Bottle from Csak a jo sörëki, Budapest. Pours black with a small tan head. Roasted malts and molasses aroma. Quite sweet to start with, then developing more roasted flavours to complement the caramel. Not revolutionary, but absolutely drinkable.

2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle brought home from Budapest. BBE 20082012. Pours a very dark brown, almost black with no head. Aroma is sweet syrupy liquorice, some roasted malt. Taste is very light and thin, watery, not as sweet as you’d imagine, liquorice, tones of roastedness and coffee, slight traces of alcohol. Palate is light, watery, no carbonation. Very disappointing.

Bottled. An almost black beer with an orangey head. The aroma has notes of malt and caramel. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, caramel, alcohol, bread, and nuts, leading to a dry finish.

On tap during the Főzdefeszt, Hungary’s first Craft-Beer Festival in Budapest.
It was quiet hard to situate this beer to my personal experience. Hard to compare with other beers that I know.
Dark beer, small foam. For a 9% ABV it’s a light tasting beer, a surprise to me, soft roast caramel and the bitterness is low. I’m confused and surprised as well. But I’ve enjoyed the beer and I’ll definitely give it an other try if I have the possibility.
BTW, I really hope that the Hungarian Craft Beers will find their way in the Budapest Pubs, which is not the case yet.

A budapesti Főzdefeszten ittam csapolva. Méltó a hírnevéhez...
Szép, krémes habja van; színe egészen sötét. Állaga sűrű, alig mozog a pohárban, már-már egy krémlikőrhöz hasonló. Ízében étcsokoládés, kissé édes. A 9 %-os alkoholtartalmat csak akkor veszed észre amikor már a fejedbe szállt...
