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.

June 2011: 500ml brown bottle, obtained in Berlin and flown home to review at leasure. That review day has arrived: poured into my lovely Wolnzacher Brauhaus glass tankard, the beer having a best before date of Nov 2011, some 5 months away.
Deep ground coffee colour (without milk), a tanned foaming head sat on top, half an inch initially, but thinning as the tasting progressed, but trying to stay the distance.
The beer was well chilled, so no smells at first: I willed the beer to give off some esters I could talk about: to be truthful it didn’t give up a great deal, some chocolate and coffee I suppose.
Mild dark chocolate and roasted Kenyan coffee flavours, with a slightly burnt toffee semi-sweetness in the aftertaste. The beer getting sweeter as it warmed.
Mouth/body feel was fine, neither rich or creamy, but certainly not watery. The 7.0%ABv sitting nicely within the brew and hardly noticed, the carbonisation was just right, making it easy to drink and enjoyable.
This isn’t a blow your socks off Bock, but it is well worth having if you can find it.
