2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
It’s a nice red amber colored beer with an OK head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, sweetness, caramel, hints of candy sugar and alcohol. The flavour is sweetish with notes of roasted malt, caramel, candy sugar a touch of fruit and alcohol. It’s not my style of beer as such, but it’s OK.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(33cl bottle) Clear, bright ruby colour with a medium-sized, slowly lacing, light-beige foamy head. Sweet toast-malty, melanoidinic nose with caramel, liquorice and subtle fruity notes. Sweet, slightly sugary flavour, full bodied with a pleasantly soft carbonation. Toasty malty taste with caramel; sweet but not sticky malty and molassy finish with a light alcoholic burn. Way better than expected.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
bottled from AH. Translucent reddish orange color, thin quickly diminishing head. Nice warm color but lacks the thick looks of a bock. Lots of roasted sugar wiith a sticky mouthfeel. Roasted malts and caramel dominates further. Alcohol is coming through strongly. Completely lacks the thick warming body which makes the bock so popular this time of the year
