3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500ml bottle. There is rotten egg smell, after much lactic sweetness then some caramell, at the end of dried fruits and dark chocolate with some bitter hop. All of this is good but not complex for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
500 ml bottle. Clear, dark reddish-black colour, long-life small beige head, dried fruity and roasted notes, medium body, a little bit fizzy, very sweet creamy malty taste, slight alcoholic and dried plummy palate. Nice one.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2013 Unfortunately seems that this bottle is not good. Hope the second one is not sour. The travel till home has been long and very hot...
Clear brown, light brown head minimal
winey, rosted malts and caramel
taste, sweet & sour, after taste, roasted malts slightly smokey and bitter
Better than first time, but not so good as I expected

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
0.5 bottle from Különleges Sörök Boltja. Foam quickly vanishes, even lace is totally gone, appearance is thus quite disappointing. The taste is sweety, roasted stuff, cola, caramel, a bit of hops is detectable in the aftertaste. Drinkable but mediocre: way to simple. I would expect more from a porter.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black, small egg-color foam. Caramel, molasses, little roasted grains in the aroma.
Taste of malts, slightly brown sugar... some caramel. Light body, medium carbonated.
I seemed a little water, and as there was something indefinable, unpleasant aftertaste.
It will not be my favorite, this still needs work.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
UPDATED: DEC 31, 2012 Szép fekete szín, gyenge habbal. Édeskés-kesernyés íz, jól sikerült porter, bár nekem a porter nem kedvenc tipusom.
However, Porters are not my favourites, I have to admit that it is a quite good beer.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
On tap @ Corvin beerfest. Dark brown body, light brown head. Aroma dominated by dark fruits, but has some chocolate in it. Taste reflects the aroma. Lots of dark fruits and some chocolate. Very easy to drink. It’s an awesome beer!

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap at a festival, Budapest.
Poured black with a small tan head that disappeares slowly. Caramel, molasses, some roasted grains in the aroma. Sweet, oily character with molasses and caramel, roasted grains. Too sweet for me but drinkable.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark brown colour, light brown head, oily liquid. Aroma is quite complex: chocolate, some smoke, roasted malts and some fruity fragrances (raisins, dried fruits). Taste of malts, slightly sweet with chocolate and some roasted nuts. Tastes a bit like iron... But not a bad brew after all.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draught at Főzdefeszt III, Budapest. Black coloured, small pale brown head, sweet nose with hint of chocolate. Sweet malty, light chocolate and some berries with whiff of smoke in the finish. Pleasant brew.
