COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Dreher Bak méltón képviseli azt a gazdag ízvilágot, ami a Dreher márkát ismertté és közkedveltté tette. A háromféle - bajor, pilzeni és karamell - maláta igazán erőteljes testet kölcsönöz ennek a mélybarna színű különlegességnek. Pörköltségét harmonikusan egészíti ki a hozzá kapcsolódó keserűség, így minden megtalálható benne, ami egy barna sört igazán tartalmassá tesz.

theacelatrain (262) - Washington DC, USA - AUG 19, 2005
On tap at the farmer’s market in Budapest. Simple and sweet, but well-made. Flavors of raisins and plums, molasses, and caramel. I liked it overall, and definitely better than most Hungarian swill.

johndoughty (4114) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 5, 2005
Very Germanic-dark with a strong and lasting mouthfeel. Some nutiness but not really a complex beer. My first from Hungary-quite impressed.

DanielBrown (3927) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2005
Bottle from a shop in Budapest. Dark chestnut brown, wi’ a fluffy white head. Strong aroma of malt and coffee. Nice flavour - smooth roasted coco - but pleasantly sweet. Smooth with no alcohol burn, just an insistent taste. I thought this might count as a Baltic Porter, but regardless of style it’s good stuff, possibly the best Hungarian beer I’ve tried.

highlandlad (1421) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2005 Complex but overdone Hungarian bock. Poured the colour of tar with a short tan head. Pungent nose - sump oil, molases and the contents of a spice rack. Fierce and not especially inviting. Didn’t know whether to drink it or sprinkle it in a curry. Full-bodied and syrupy sweet. Heavily spiced, with herbal and espresso notes. Oily mouthfeel. Unusual but not in a good way. (Bottle)

madquacker (1052) - Canberra ACT, AUSTRALIA - JAN 1, 2005
Aroma of cough mixture with a dash of creosote to taste. A dire brew which is a traversity to black beers everywhere. I feel they have over egged this. Avoid.

turbothy (1120) - Bonn, GERMANY - OCT 26, 2004
A very good beer for casual drinkers. Not too subtle or complex, but with a pleasant round taste, velvet mouthfeel and a very appealing appearance.

I spent a good amount of time with this beer (purchased for $.79 at a cheap-ass grocery--I’ll be going back!) and fam very surprised at its poor showing here!? Rich, coffee and carrot juice body, with lavish, lackadaisically unfurling ringlets of foam. Aroma is dark chocolate, bitter orange peel, a little pine, and currants, and a little leather. This beer exudes a tremendous amount of odor--mostly very good. Flavor is not quite as impressive but still very good. It’s not a salty and alive as one might expect from the aroma. Still, there’s some light coffee/caramel flavors here backed by cream, and then a much more brash, jagged roastiness seeps in and the tongue-numbing hops hit last; quite a transformation throughout the sip. Finishes out a bit thinner than one might expect. Still, a really delicious brew.
