This beer is outstanding! By far, the best bock I have ever had. Pretty orange-maroon color, small head. Aroma of roasted malty caramel. Taste was excellent...somewhat complex for a bock....molasses, caramel, rounded out perfectly with a crisp hop finish....this beer kicks aass!

Cola like appearance/color. Pale brown head - loose and carbonated - dissipates quickly. Decent aroma - deep roasted malt. Flavors seemed very subtle - malt dominates, not really sweet, didn’t notice any hops. Overall seemed a bit ’light’ in style, flavor and body.

npdempse (934) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JUN 2, 2002
Reddish brown body with a small head. Nose is sweet and malty and quite enticing. Has a good full, buttery mouthfeel. Flavor rivals Celebrator--sweet and malty with just a touch of bitterness, with a complex array of chocolatey/toffee/coffee notes.

Probably the best Norwegian beer (of any style) you can get. The benchmark of a Norwegian bock.

Very nice!! I proclaim that from now on, I will not make immature jokes about the name ’Aass’. Just kidding, I will. What if you crossed Aass Bock and Hair of the Dog? Anyway, I LOVED the appearance - rich, creamy head, dark color. Nice caramel in the aroma which followed through well into the flavor, maltiness, sweet. Attention Shiner, Ziegen, Saxer, Michelob: THIS is a real bock!!

MilkmanDan (1943) - Eagan, Minnesota, USA - APR 26, 2002
Deep brownish-orange with not much head. Smells very sharp, sweet, lemony, and malty. Flavor is quite sweet and extremely malty. Get some hints of lemon juice and a mouthfeel of unfiltered mineral water. Hops dry the finish somewhat. A decent bock, though not as robust and hearty as expected.

tbookman (618) - Ephrata, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2002
A decent bock - moderate sweetness, robust maltiness. Nice lingering head, deep brown/ruby color. No bitterness/hops to speak of.

legion242 (2344) - Richardson, Texas, USA - APR 24, 2002
Red-cola color; Head was eggshell colored and dense; Clean, malt aroma. Appropriate mouthfeel. A bit metallic (tinny). No alcohol detected. Amazingly mundane.

chronictonic (472) - Oreland, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 18, 2002
Norway’s Oldest Brewery - Medium bodied bock beer with a proliferation of sweet malt flavors. Kind of thin bodied and subtle in it’s flavors. Mild hopping. Finishes with a pronounced lager yeast flavor. Not bad - definatley something different.

While I didn’t like their pilsner because of the vanilla flavor in it, the toffee flavor in this bock makes it simply excellent. A truly great bock.
