Reminds me of a maibock. Soft malt flavors, well balanced.

Perhaps the best Norwegian beer. Drink this beer temperate!

UPDATED: APR 4, 2005 While I don’t agree with Shadallion who said this is the king of bock, I must admit that this was by far the best norwegian beer I’ve tasted until the apparition of the Nogne O beers - dark ruby colour, fine head, caramel, malty and sweet.

Very nice bock, with full dark fruit flavors, but all subtle. It had an amazingly soft and creamy mouthfeel. Nice sweet, fruity aroma. Not the best from Aass, but a very good beer.

UPDATED: NOV 26, 2005 Everything that Samuel Adams Triple Bock should have been. Rich pruneish nose. Tastes like a fine after-dinner brandy. Full bodied and rounded out with a roasted maltiness. Prescence and kick of the alcohol becomes apparent in the finish. Excellent! Give me some more of that Aass!!!

This the king of bocks. Smooth, creamy and delicous. Not as challenging as dopples, so a new beer drinker should start here. A bottle-conditioned twang takes it to a new level. Awesome beer.

This beer tastes and smells like aass. Ok now that I got that horrible pun out of the way... This oh so bubbling lager has a clear amber colour and a somewhat creaming taste. There is a nice little white head constantly on top of the brew. The taste was somewhere between chocolate and apples with a roasted coffee finish. Green bottles are very cool and this bottle is no exception. The shape is very neat. One problem my Aass was slightly skunky due, no doubt, to the semi-transparent glass.
