3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap during the Főzdefeszt, Hungary’s first Craft-Beer Festival in Budapest.
It was quiet hard to situate this beer to my personal experience. Hard to compare with other beers that I know.
Dark beer, small foam. For a 9% ABV it’s a light tasting beer, a surprise to me, soft roast caramel and the bitterness is low. I’m confused and surprised as well. But I’ve enjoyed the beer and I’ll definitely give it an other try if I have the possibility.
BTW, I really hope that the Hungarian Craft Beers will find their way in the Budapest Pubs, which is not the case yet.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Brown/black color. Medium carbonation. Aromas of tobacco and some dried fruit aromas from the malts. No clear hop aroma. Very malty taste of chocolate, prunes, with noticeable, but not overbearing alcohol. Light body for its strength. Easy to drink. I’m a fan of the style and this one is a bit better than average.

Tha aroma is sweet, caramel, vinous, dry fruits (mainly cherry), alcohol. Nicely oxidized. Taste is sweet, malty, dry fruits, toffee, some roastiness and coffee in the back. Slightly alcoholic with a pleasant warming; it tastes a bit like cherry liquor. Medium to full body, low carbonation. Overall: I’m not very keen on bocks but this one is very enjoyable.
