2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
16/01 0.5 l bottle courtesy of Marko, thanks for sharing! It poured clear brownish body with medium sized head. Sweet caramel and other malt aroma, weaker grainy notes. Quite sweet flavor, simple caramel and sugar with coffee that doesn’t balance it much. Medium bodied with very sweet finish. Slightly alcoholic as well, which should not be for such ABV. Expected much more from this renowned beer.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
In my opinion one of the best Norwegian bock beers, with a good balance of caramel, dried fruits and coffee flavours and a pleasant hint of hops in the background.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
0.33l bottle. This is a clear light dark brown body with a thin sidesticking off-white head. Aroma is light sweet with some dark caramel, thin fruity hints and perhaps even some raisins. Average carbonation, medium to full-bodied and it has a light sticky to oily mouthfeel. Flavors are also mildly sweet with lots of dark caramel, more of those raisins, something mildly burned and just that little prickling and warming boozy alcohol touch in the finish. All in all a light drinkable bock (I even got my girlfriend to drink this and she’s not the kind who normally drinks bocks) This has to be one of the best I’ve ever had from Aass.
