2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle. Creamy pour...dark brown...tan head. looks rich. Earthy, piney, burnt aroma is fairly present and interesting...pine resin is the dominate smell. Somewhat reminds me of the OSA. The taste shows even more piney resin. nice creamy thick mouthfeel, finishes with serious resin. Not striking me in any way as a German beer. Maybe this is just left over OSA??? I’m not knocking it for not being German, rather I’m knocking it for being too much like OSA, which I really dislike for the most part...a beer that can honestly only be drank once a year in very small quantities isn’t a great beer.

Bottle. Dark amber, red in colour with white head. In aroma caramel and malt with a hint of dried fruit. In taste caramel and toasted malt mainly. Surprisingly low bodied, medium bitter. Doesn’t really taste like a proper bock, isn’t that bet on the other hand.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Not bad, but too sweet for my taste. It pours a warm brown color with a lot of head. The aroma is sweet malt. It’s very sweet smelling, and the flavor is even sweeter. A little spice, some nutmeg, some ginger, some fig... but mostly, a butter-sugar-molasses thing going on in the flavor. This wasn’t bad but I won’t have it again.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown colour. Aroma of roasted malts. The same is the taste. Slighty watery aftertaste. For dunkler bock it should have nearly 2% higher abv.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottled. Pour into snifter, black porter color, big tan head. Aroma is toffee, fig, cherry, plum, caramel, slight burnt sugar. Like a malt forward Barleywine. Really awesome Aroma. Flavor is sweet candied sugar. Really really sweet sugar. Cherries, plums, dark fruits, caramel. Very sweet but not unpleasant. But the body is a bit too effervescent. Otherwise really good.

American Bock, and the land of the free! In my humble opinion, go for Doppelbock instead, too soft for my taste!
