Bought this beer at a grocery store in Berlin. Aroma has a sweet scent and some coffee notes. Nice exapmle of a bock. A little thin tasting, but not overly. If you like malty beers on a chilly night, I’d recommend this one.

Location: 500 ml bottle shared by mwmanvt, 12/2/12
Aroma: The nose has some roast, a little bit of fruit, caramel notes, and a little brown sugar
Appearance: The pour of this beer is dark brown in color with an off-white head and no lace
Flavor: It is medium sweet and fairly malty, with similar components to the nose, and a light bitterness
Palate: The body is fairly light and a little watery, it has an average carbonation, and a clean finish
Thanks for bringing this one back from Berlin, Mike! I found some stuff to like about this one for sure. Maybe it doesn’t come together perfectly, but the components are all pretty nice.

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Medium tan head. Deep dark brown barely translucent body. Sugary earthy soy sauce aroma with candy notes. Sweet-dryish licorice and soy sauce taste with chocolate and toffee notes. Mid-to-full body. Mild, soft, smooth mouthfeel. Dryish candy, soy sauce and chocolate aftertaste with earthy spicy notes. Some lingering alcohol heat. Really clean and well-balanced, but lacking in flavour.
