4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle courtesy of Milwaukee YeHa! white elephant (score!) Dark, pretty much opaque and brown in color with a creamy, mossy, 1/3" dark tan head. Aroma rolls up prunes, plums, rum raisin, pepper, black licorice, brown sugar and dry chocolate. Even a hint of black patent malt wafts on the coattails as well. Flavor takes us in the right direction. Hearty and full flavored. Chocolatey toffee fortes with a distant plum pudding and graham cracker crust vibe. Ripe, burnt, purple skinned fruits meld magnificently with rich chocolate bock allegories. Arid chocolateness countermands the creamy bock goodness. Excellently balanced and quite the masseuse on the palate. Finish reveals earthen tobacco, bakers chocolate and flame licked prunes. Simply a damn good bock.

Hard to think that this was found at a Grocery Outlet. They are known to carrry quality beer from time to time (it’s awful hit & miss) but there are times when you can strike gold, like this time with Dreher. Coming all the way over from Hungary, this dark beer is very good. It’s almost like a cousin to a stout in many areas like the aroma, the appearance and flavor. Definitely a strong dark beer, not sure why it’s only been reviewed just once before this review. A really great beer.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
The aroma as I popped the cap filled me with dread - it seemed artificial. It poured black with medium sized tan brown head. Once in the glass the malty aroma gave vegemite and roasted notes but was dominated by the sweetness which, upon tasting, proved sickly. Quite a full body, but it’s thick and sticky enough to have you gagging.
