Svesse (6041) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 3, 2008
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Stockholm, 1 feb 2008) Dark ruby colour with frothy, off-white head. Malty, nutty nose with chocolate and dark fruit. Malty, slightly spicy taste with notes of chocolate, hints of clove and/or nutmeg and a spicy, chocolatey finish. Overall very balanced and smooth. Nice and well made bock, without straying too far from the middle of the road.

ha1ag (700) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2006
bottled 30 cl. industrial bok, alcohol sticks out, sweetnees seem to come from chemicals and not from a well-composed flavour. It was my sacrifice on the altair of bok worshipping

DanBerg (59) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2006
Bottle at home, out of a sixpack. The first one I drank was good, I enjoyed it. But later on, the flavor became disappointing. Not one of the best bockbeers I’ve got this fall.
