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.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 29, 2009
UPDATED: APR 18, 2009 Dark brown with red hues. Mostly diminishing creamy beige head, avarage lacing . Pure grains, cereals in aroma with a touch of smokiness. Dark chocolate, bitter coffee feels in the flavor with medium roasted finish. Light to medium bodied, poorly developed malts. Rather average than significant.

MartinT (9191) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 8, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
This drinkable and inoffensive Dunkler Bock proffers molasses sweetness and cherry fruitiness offset by neutral hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A veil of foam covers the darkest brown.
-This is not bad per say, but not much malt development for the style and generic hoppiness make for a forgettable experience.
-The body is lean. I prefer more chewiness in the style.
-A little alcohol shows.
-If you are in Hungary, get the Gösser Bock if you want a readily available Bock with more malt personality.

nate2g (1548) - Boomtown!, AUSTRALIA - DEC 27, 2008
Pours a dark ruby with a beige head. Aroma is of caramel and dark fruits, with some roastiness. Flavour is of fruit and sweet malts. This one has a sticky palate with a dry finish.

MBison (548) - Southern Highlands, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2008
Bottle (500ml). Poured very dark hazy brown (virtually black) with a small, rocky, light brown head which was mostly lasting. An extremely rich aroma with roasted sticky toffee malts, burnt sugars, dusty chocolate, brandy, muscatels, currents, creamy caramel and light notes of olives in the back. Flavor was a very mild bitterness with rich toffee malts, brandy soaked fruit cake, chocolate, caramelized dates, sultanas, hints of coffee and toasted light warming finish. Well hidden alcohol content. Medium bodied with soft carbonation, a chewy mouthfeel, somewhat syrupy texture and a good length finish.

Muggus69 (2020) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - AUG 30, 2008
500ml bottle, Bazaar Beer Café, Sydney. Near-black body, almost opaque with bit of ruby highlight, small dense tan head. Rich vinous aroma, dried fruits, dark chocolate and nuts, not overpowering. Thick body, low carbonation, alcohol definately shows its colours, some slight astrigency to contrast the sweetness. Plenty of dark fruit on the body, plums and prunes, raisins and dark grapes, with a backbone of rich dark malt chocolate. Finish is a bit on the gritty side, drying and a tad alcoholic. Certainly packs a punch, and a 500ml bottle surely acts as a sedative. Good dessert beer, couldn’t see myself drinking a whole bottle again though!

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUL 27, 2008
Very impressed with this one. Similar to Silva Dark Strong Beer from Romania, but with a bigger hit and a more roasted taste. I got a pleasant caramel taste when it first hit my tongue, which then proceeded to dance about my mouth with joy. Bottled, Bar Kelta, Budapest.

Bottled (BB 12/2008)
Dark ruby color, steady tan head. Aroma is interesting: thick mix of sour milk, red currant and toasted malts. Medium-, almost full-bodied. Caramelly, slightly grainy, some toasted notes and some alcohol. I have no idea what this beer wants to be: dark malt liquer?

Marko (4798) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 13, 2008
0.5l bottle purchased at some store in Budapest
Poured an impressively dark brown/black colour with a tiny brown head that went away too damn fast. The nose is roasty and malty, quite nice, some caramel. The taste is good but doesn’t match the expectations set by the appearance and the nose... light macchiato, with some low quality milk chocolate. Some roastiness, weak lq, slightly acidic hopiness, weak caramel. Alcohol well hidden (but not perfectly). A bit warming. Not the fullest of bodies, but really heavy for Hungary. The best macro in Hungary I guess, taking a niche that (the infinitely superior) Tomislav takes here in Croatia.

evilempire (147) - sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2008
draught in Nagykanisza. yet another brewery that brews a pretty awful lager, but then redeems themselves with a decent dark. Similar to Tomislav, being a deep ruby-black, slight head (brown) that lasted throughout. Fruity, malty body with a dry aftertaste

UPDATED: JUL 27, 2010 Egy magyar baksör a fajtára jellemző jegyekkel,csak kicsit kommerszebben.Nem rossz,de nekem túl "karamellás". 2010.07.23. Régen kóstoltam már, de most jobban ízlett mint akkor. Gyümölcsös, karamellás és könnyen iható bak, ami egy kicsit édes, de egyébként kellemes.
