The bottle looks good, the beer in the glass is okay. Woody-sweet aroma. Nice. Tastes woody, too, but not really sweet. Strong, but not alcoholic. Finish woody-grasy, a bit moldy and unbalanced. Had better bocks.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - NOV 27, 2008
It’s a beautiful amber color, and the head is huge and white. The aroma has sweetness and notes of malt, candy sugar and the flavour has sweetness, notes of candy sugar, malt and fruit. It’s smooth and well balanced.

Bottle. Nice orange amber with a golden head. Fat malt aroma - pretty much smells like raw malt with alight sour note. Lightbodied, papery malt base, a hint oranges, some citric and herbal hops. Bready finish, caramelized and light citric aftertaste. Chewy enough body.

MiP (14519) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - APR 10, 2007
Bottle, 6.5%. Clear dark copper colour. Small white head. The flavour is OK malty with some pepper in OK balance. Not powerful for a bock, but still good. Like a stronger Apoldaer 1806.

bierkoning (11400) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2006
Deep golden color. "Sweeties" aroma, like cheap cherry sweets for children. Malty flavor with a hint of roast. Just a bit alcoholic. Fairly dry. Well made. Bottle from MoritzF.

pivnizub (9482) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - APR 26, 2006
Deep golden to light amber coloured, small head, qickly diminishing; alcoholic nose, traces of sweet malt and honey detectable; slghtly sweetish flavour; short, sweet, a bit metallic finish. Absolutely not impressive; a quite bland BocK from the "DDR".........

MoritzF (8860) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - APR 19, 2006
(bottle) Clear pale amber colour with a minimal off-white foamy medium head. Sweet and toasty malt aroma, slightly honeyish and alcoholic. Sweet flavour, medium bodied, low to medium carbonated. Initially sweet malty and slightly toasty taste with shy hints of caramel, also slightly buttery; moderately sweet malty, light-hoppy and only slightly bitter finish. Rather bland Bock.

rpattinson (84) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2005
Cardboard aroma; neutral taste with smoke and cardboard aromas; bitterish finish with smoke and dust aromas. Crap. Horrible stale hop taste and otherwise bland.
