Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
The beer pours a medium brown-amber color with a white head. The aroma is toffee and earthy hops. The flavor is chocolate, earth, dirt and toffee. There is no detectable alcohol. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
500ml in a pottery bottle with a swing-top that was bought at Galeria Kaufhof am Alex in Berlin. Presented as a Weihnachtsbier. Shining, dark brown body with ruby highlights. Decent, off-white head fading to a patchy surface. Dark malty aroma with discreet notes of dark fruits. Toffee malts in flavour with a touch of chocolate and dark fruits far behind. Dry, noble hops to the ending to keep the malty sweetness at bay. Smooth drinking. Just alright on a lazy day back home (Tromsø, 03.01.2010).

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
500 ml bottle. Reddish brown and crystal clear. Tall light beige fine-laced head that clings to the glass. Papery aroma with a spritzy lager character. Nutty malty and papery flavours. The hops are clearly there but they are clean and metallic with a note of grass and leather. Nice and nutty, but the hops hide the sweetness really well and leaves the beer rather thin and disappointing.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle: Clear, amber coloured, quite stable mid-sized off-white head; caramelly nose with a light acidity (no infection!) and traces of hops; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, medium bodied; slightly lingering solid bitter-sweet finish with a hoppy touch, completed by molasses and dried fruits. Nice Bock, quite well balanced.......
