tap @ bohemia (budapest) dark brown colour, medium body, average carbonated, coffee, caramel, roasted malty, bit smoked Rod_beer (69) - DF, MEXICO - JUN 2, 2016
Dark ruby (almosy black) with tan thick head. Aroma of coffee and red fruits. Taste is sweet, bitter notes on the way, kind of licorice feel. Too strong for a dark lager, too weak for a doppelbock. It gets better if it’s cold as ice.

Dark brown, slightly hazy, brown head. The aroma is dominated by sweet rye bread. The taste begins dry with medium bitterness, but becomes gradually sweet and a bit salty towards the finish. The taste is supported by medium carbonation and a medium body. All in all, it is bit of an odd bird: too strong (6.3% ABV) and too sweet for a dark lager, but too straight-forward and too light-bodied for a doppelbock.
