thewolf (11191) - Kolding, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2008
Bottle. [thank you, bierkoning]
Pours lovely ruby-red with a medium, frothy, off-white head. Aroma has light caramel, some citric hops with a light smoky note. Highish carbonation, fine mouthfeel. Flavour is a bit metallic, some sweet malts. Lots of dryness and a light fruitiness. Quite hoppy finish. Okay.

sayravai (4674) - Helsinki, FINLAND - SEP 28, 2008
(Bottled, drank at about 15C) Clear, dark amber with a smallish, firm head. Aroma of caramel and some roasted malt, with a hint of sourness and smoke. Sweetish-malty, caramely flavor with some alcohol presence, and dried fruit. Almost medium body with quite smooth carbonation. A simple, but smooth and reasonably balanced bock with not too much sweetness.

Borresteijn (4791) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle @ a tasting session. Ruby brown colour, off-white head. Aroma of roasted malts and caramel. Flavour is very metallic, roasted malts and some dark fruits. Quite bitter. Bit thin. Don’t like the metallic flavour at all.

Svesse (6174) - 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.
