3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
.33l bottle from Sörspecialista.hu in Budapest. Waxed/sealed top, but pours gorgeously in to a snifter with blackest brown body and minimal head. Sweet treats, childhood candies, coughdrops. Cultural relativism failing when rating. Sour cherry, but is roundly blended in with a strong, rich dark ale. Very full, fruits of all sides abound. Really tasty, mighty beverage. chocolate hopping is just incidental to the wealth of flavors that come through the upper fruit and hop/malt flavorings. Complex, tasty beer, but does not always come together as a harmonal beer. lovely, another please sir.

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 2/20
Bottle. Deep brown body, small off-white head. Nose is extreme black berries, syrup, black currants, hints of coca-cola. Too much. Taste is loads of syrupy berry juice and hints of grains and licorice. Thick body and medium carbonation. Jeez, talk about screwing up a fairly decent dobbelbock with berry concentrate. Bad, bad stuff.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle from Csak a Jó Sör - Only Good Beer in Budapest. Pours a deep brown colored body with a slight purple hue. Finger-width, creamy, purple head that dissipates slowly and leaves a nice lacing. Aroma is slightly medicinal berries and currants with traces of caramel, spice, roast, and a faint tartness. Flavor is better. Nice caramel base with a solid berry fruitiness. A slight medicinal quality to the bitter hops, but not distracting. Hints of cocoa, roasts, and some spices show up with a touch of tartness before this finishes smooth and somewhat dry and bitter with plenty of berries. Lengthy aftertaste following a soft, medium body and a slightly creamy, medium-light carbonation. Overall, an interesting beer. The fruits are very distinct, but the malts and dunkel base still plays a nice role in balancing this out. The slight medicinal note is my only beef. Nice beer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
330ml bottle from Csak a Jó Sór in Budapest. Almost jet black body. Fading beige head, spotty lacing. Quite inviting smell of blueberries and blackcurrants mixed with dark malts. Berries, semi-tart, together with dark caramel malts resulting in a bit jam-like flavour. Mid-tart ending. Unusual and quite tasty (Cabin at MS Rügen, 03.08.2012).

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
330 ml bottle. From Budapest, Hungary. Thanks Armando!
Black colour with tiny greyish frothy head.
Aroma is nice mixture of strong ale and berries. Some berries, not just bilberries, some sugary sweetness and right amount of vinous alcohol.
Flavour is strong. Lots of vinous and liqueur alcohol strength. Berries, sugary sweetness and some mild liquorice dryness.
Very nice for a Doppelbock. Slightly thin though. I believe this is the best Hungarian beer so far for me.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Black body, almost no head. Aroma of berries, not particularly blue berries. Sweet aroma. Flavour is intense and more blueberryful than aroma. Little funky twist. Sweet and alcoholic. Interesting. Light berry liqueur.
