2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, traded with McTapps and MichaelAwesome, thanks! Quite full bodied beer, with notes of bread crust, caramel, nuts, dried fruit, as well as subtle marzipan and a floral hoppy hint. Unfortunately the alcohol content shows up with time, rendering the drinking experience not really worthwhile.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle from The German Club 010415. Smokey, malty goodness in a bottle. Pours thn dark brown colour with an even layer of tan foam. Some smoke in the aroma and a whole lot of caramel and malt in the flavour. This is a good beer that goes down quite easily. Hold the 7.2% ABV quite well. Slight burn in the back of the throat. Thin bodied but quite full in the mouth.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Ein schön malziger Bock mit einer gewissen Muffigkeit, etwas an Malz, ein wenig Süße, aber schon einer ordentlichen Stärke. Absolut in Ordnung, wenn auch ein wenig zu viel Stinktier im Abschluss.
