3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

On tap at Epcot. Black with red hints. Medium, tan head. The aroma is licorice, burnt oak, vanilla and molasses. Tastes very sweet, with very little bitterness. The palate is medium, syrupy, and vinegary. This is a good, flavorful malt-bomb.

Draft at Trinity Brass Tap. Pours a dark brownish black with a dark ruby hue along the edges. Tan foamy head that fades rather quickly and leaves virtually no lacing. Aroma has roasted malt sweetness. Nice flavor of roasted malt with some coffee notes. The 7% is well disguised.
