Nagyon sötétbarna szín, tetején világosbarna habbal. Illata pörkölt malátás és enyhén karamelles. Már többször ittam olyat (más bakoknál is tapasztaltam amúgy), hogy csak úgy áradt a büdös száraz táp illata (alias kutyakaja), most nem, és kifejezetten jó. Íze sem rossz, pörkölt maláta, kevés kakaóval, karamellel és kávéval. Lecsengése keserédes, száraz, szénsavassága is egészen el van találva (ami a Dreher Classic-nál egy bődületes katasztrófa). Kicsit nagyobb testtel még jobb lehetne, de így sem rossz! LoFi (1753) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 25, 2010
Bottle found in a Hungarian supermarket. Black with a brown head. Roasted malt, chocolate, fruit and nuts. Not bad at all! leems (406) - Portland, Oregon, USA - OCT 2, 2010
Hungary 2010, bottle. Dark brown with a little head. Toffee, cherry, light roast aroma. Taste of plum, cherry, and burnt caramel. BeerBlockaid (683) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - AUG 1, 2010
Bottle into a glass @ restaurant in Budapest, Hungary. Pours a dark cola color with amber hints through the light. Medium cola head. Nose is sweet and malts. Some sulfuric hints, and some herbs. Taste is malts, a bit roasted. Nutty and very sweet. Some vanilla hints and herbal hints. Balazs (787) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - JUL 24, 2010
Poured dark brown with a beige, lacing head. Roasted malts, caramel, burnt sugar, plum and hints of coffee in the aroma makes this beer a pleasant surprise. Light body, medium carbonation with a sweet finish. Good.

Aroma was dark barley with nuts, and a touch of soya sauce. Nice dark appearance, very appealing burgundy-black colour. Taste was heavy, a barley wine almost, plenty of sweetness as well as some coffee hints. Dry finish. A good, strong dark beer. Nickls (2607) - Alexandria, Virginia, USA - MAY 10, 2010
(Old BA rate - tap)
Poured with a generous, slightly tan head. Deep, dark brown color nearing on black with ruby hints around. Decent lacing. Bit of sweet maltiness, and just a touch pruney...pretty muted. Expect more depth in these areas for the style. Kinda of bitter (not as in hop bitterness) verging on cold coffee without the roastiness. Little bit of the maltiness shows up. Lighter and nearing on thin, not enough body. Not all that drinkable and was somewhat of a chore to work through. Not really inticing, but not terribly offensive. Overall, just doesn’t hit on the style and actually reminded me of a very dumbed down version of Guiness draught. Thought this was more like a Euro Dark Lager rather than a Bock. luttonm (6767) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAY 2, 2010
Draft at a small stand in the Budapest central market. Really great! Darkest ruby brown pour with thin bock head. Nose is sweet and deep, body is a warm coating, slightly biter sweet. Less smoke/roast than other Hungarian bocks I tried. Really tasty. hallinghansen (3421) - Odense SV, DENMARK - DEC 29, 2009
Bottle shared by Anker. Clear brown body, with a small white head. Aroma is sweet caramel. Flavor is the same including some malt. Plovmand (8624) - Grindsted, DENMARK - DEC 27, 2009
Bottle shared by Anker. Dark brown body with a steady tan head. Light roasted aroma with some malt and sweet tobacco. The flavour is lots of sweet tobacco, malt and loads of caramel.
