2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
500 ml can. BB 14/06/2013. From Cuso. Köszönöm!
Dark reddish brown almost black colour with a small to average sized foamy light tan head.
Strange chemical aroma with some plum, some sweetness and some sweat in the aroma. The flavour is also quite messed up with sweet malt, prune essence, alcohol, some spices and Coke.
After the flavour the aroma isn’t that bad anymore... but this ain’t no legendary. Could be a bit less sweet.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Reddish-black, small reddish-brown foam.
Strong artificial plum aroma.
Overdosed sweet flavor, medium carbonated syrupy body.
Destroyed the basic Demon line. Not good.
Worse than the Meggy Demon.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
0,5l can. This beer has artificial aroma and taste, and it is not so drinkable. Aroma is mostly plum, and taste is strange. Overall, it is not good.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle. Absolute artificial, it’s never seen plum or good beer ingredients. By the way, the artificial aroma is stronger than natural, so smell is good (for me), but taste is very bad, beside some smoke. Foam is little, CO2 is fizzy. Not good at all.

1.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
UPDATED: JAN 25, 2013 the appearance is quite great: brownish, dark colour, medium, though quickly collapsing head; the aroma is also acceptable: dominated by plum - it’s ok so far (though not as good as the plum beer of Békésszentandrási brewery, but ok); regarding the taste...well it was a mistake to taste it, it would have been much better just to see it and enjoy the appearance...it is horrible! the artificial fruity aroma (which is not really plum...it’s just typical artificial fruitness) unfortunately not absolutely dominates the taste, therefore a disgusting metallic bitter aftertaste can be felt for minutes (which seems an eternity in this special case). this thing is very far from ’drinkable’ category...and what’s more! it has the same price as staropramen lezak, or an Edelweiss Heffeweissbier! it was a huge mistake to buy it!

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle - Pours deep beige, nearly black. Artificial for the nose and in taste as well. This a syrup and not really a beer.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
0,5 l bottle, Tesco, because of curiosity.
Poured deep brown with a small lacing tan head. Chemical plum aroma. Discusting and unbalanced, roasted character, bad artifical taste. Brrr, this is terrible. Absolutly wrong way of develop

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
26/12 A 0.5 l bottle ogivlado gave away, thanks! It poured clear dark brown body with medium sized ocher head. Aroma of dried plums and some booze, could be brandy. Flavor was slightly bitter, fine dried plums with sweet malts, messed up with coffee, herbal and some spicy dry notes. Medium in body with long, correct caramel, dried plums and coffee finish. The thing was saved with the aftertaste, however it’s was hard going and not really likable.

2.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Thanks to ogivlado for bringing this from Hungary and sharing with us! Poured a red/black body with a slightly off white nice head. Sweet plummy nose, slightly slivovitz-like, light... alcohol? or is it just the plums that invoke such thoughts. Dunno. Anyway, sweet and kinda nice. The taste, however, is a mess - a light roastiness battling with slightly overly sweet plum notes, some bitterness shows up and doesn’t help. Smells much nicer than it tastes. Didn’t expect it to be any good, ended up being slightly better than expected, and still not good.
