3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from Systembolaget. I’m not a big fan of bocks. Boozy and overly sweet most of the time. So is this one but I still think it´s pretty good. Golden and clear with a small white head. Wonderful scents of grain, almonds, honey and sweet flowers accompanies the alcohol really well. The taste then? It´s still to sweet and boozy but also grainy and the honey that goes well together with sweeter dishes. It´s a mild aromatic bock that manges to win me over on it´s side and thats not bad.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
0.5l bottle poured in a Weizen glass.
A: Crystal gold color with a 1 to 2 fingers white head which dissipates quickly.
S: Strong malt, yeasts and honey. Quite "bready" too.
T: Very strong malt taste. Yeasts and honey can be also easily noted. A hoppy-bitter end.
M: Medium body. Medium carbonation.
D: Good. Despite the 6.9% ABV.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Crystal golden yellow with huge frothy top. In nose pleasant malty sweet, a bit alcohol pungent, hops are only in flavor and gentle bitter more towards finish. Thick mouthfeel, oily-slick texture, a bit sugary aftertaste but without sugar sourness. Reminds more strong pils than bock. Pleasant.

3.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet, dark brown bock with hints of liquorice, rock candy, dates and syrup. A lot of good malt tones, weak smell and ephemeral aftertaste. Weird brew - the good parts of it are very good and the boring parts very boring.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Couleur dorée, mousse blanche qui disparait. Nez malt doux, note pomme. Gout malt, orge, note raisin et pomme, corps huileux et notes d’alcool, qui me fait penser a une malt liquor.
