3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Hazy amber with a low white head - huge wood and vanilla aroma - The wood and the vanilla olso dominates the taste, but there is some hints of malts in the back - Finish is again all wood and vanilla - Interersting and nice

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
375ml bottle (300e of overpriced beer tasting) (Alus Celle, Riga)
Smells old and aged, a bit oxidised, but it gets better as it warms. Tops pour was clear, and that had some acetone. Taste of that is quite raisiny. Cloudier one had even more raisins, but more of a bread pudding melange. A little sticky, but not heavy or boozy, and at 10.2% thatís worth crediting it an extra point.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Dark amber color. Malty caramelly soft spicy nutty aroma. Very sweet, nutty flavor with caramel, hints of cognac and dried fruit. Milk chocolate. Hardly any carbon. Alcohol totally hidden. Hardly recognizable as a weizenbock, but well done.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours brown like sweet sherry with minimal carbonation and no head to speak of. Smells of liquorice and slightly woody. Tastes sweet, caramel and slightly dry after taste. Very thick on the palate, almost like food. Not sure this has any liking to a weizenbock iíve ever had. strange flavour. undecided on whether i actually like this one or not.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
37.5cl bottle at home from Only Good Beer, Budapest. Body is hazy rusty brown, head is flat, minimal lacing. Nose is brown sugar, red wine, light coffee liqueur. Flavor is wine, toast, light smoke, spices, dried fruits, wood. Heavy sweet, light bitter, light sour. Finish is short lasting light roasty bitter, light sweet sour, hint of alcohol warmth. Full body, sticky texture, soft carbonation. Quite sweet therefore a bit heavy, very interesting and unique, but as itís too sweet itís not my style.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle, many thanks to madmitch76, cheers ken!
Bottle number 8565 of 9992 to toast Lucy leaving Brewdog Bar Bristol and going to Cloudwater.
Poured into my EurHop festival glass. Dark murky colour, looks like sewage water, and also caramel colour too. Not good.
Aroma is booze, toffee, bannoffee pie, sweet malts, alcohol and oak and wood. Taste is caramel, toffee pudding/pie, licorice, nectar, honey, some Simcoe bite and booze. A little too much crystal and too much booze on the finish.
An interesting style and a good attempt at copying it but not my thing.
