vipinvelp (2361) - Velp, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2014
Clear ruby brown with beige foam head, quickly fading away. Light caramel aroma, bit too sweet. Watery taste, not too much taste actually. Dissapointing. (Velp 201411)

Douberd (2598) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2014
(Bruch Festbock) Stubby bottle 330 ml from trade with vipinvelp, thanks! Served into a snifter, ABV 6.8% Light brown colour on the body, clear and transparent, with a small and thin light beige head. Low retention, minimal lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel malts, sugars, light floral notes. Taste is sweet, caramel, malts, some faint chocolate on the finish, toffee. Thin body, low carbonation. Overall okay, a bit too thin for me.

Erzengel (3553) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - OCT 25, 2013
Rating from 2008: Im Antrunk malzig-wässrig. Im Hauptteil hält sich dieser Eindruck von einem alkoholischen Malzbier - insgesamt ziemlich flaches Aroma. Es fehlt irgendwie die Tiefe. Der Abgang ist neutral-süßlich, aber mit einer doch lang-anhaltende malzigen Süße, die aber stärker sein könnte. Auch machen sich erst im Abgang die 6,8% bemerkbar. --> Könnte mehr Tiefgang und Charakter vertragen! --> 12,9,12,10,12,10 - 10,45

Ruprecht_007 (641) - Cesky Tesin, CZECH REPUBLIC - JAN 7, 2013
Bottle, trade with Grima, huge thanx! Barva: tměvě hnědočervená. Pěna jemná, nedržící. Vůně: lehká kávově karamelová. Chuť: plné výrazně sladké pivo se sladovou chutí s jemným náznakem višní a kávy. Jen slabý chmelový náznak. Přestože nejsem fanda sladkých piv, tohle je prostě výborné!

stevoj (2328) - Boise, Idaho, USA - OCT 4, 2012
Nice bite to this beer. Sharp, bitterness with elements of coffee and chocolate. Color is deep brown, no head to speak of, but taste is right on the money. A nice sipper for a fall day.

kevnic2008 (8479) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - MAY 31, 2012
Clear copper color lasting head. Aroma: Caramel and alcohol. Full in body. Finish is sweet and short. I get caramel and perceive a bit of hotness from the alcohol.

Koelschtrinker (11053) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Dunkler Malzgeruch, leicht schokoladig. malziger Antrunk, der leicht scharf aufgrund einer säuerlichen Alkoholnote wirkt. Im Mittelteil röstmalzig (leicht verwässert) und etwas erdig. Fruchtige Nuancen deuten sich an, werden durch die prägnante Herbe aber überdeckt. Die Malzigkeit gleitet im Nachgeschmack samtig aus, bleibt aber lange Zeit auf hohem Level, ohne das Herbe oder sonstige Aromen stören. Bissig startender Bock, der mit der Zeit besser wird. Danke an Malzbonbon für das Bier! Test vom 22.3.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 7,8,8,11,6,9 - 8,65

Grima (2123) - Saarburg, Rhineland-Palatinate, GERMANY - JAN 18, 2011
The beer in glass, looks amber - brown, and a beautiful fine-pored cream stands on top for a long time. Smells very malty, subtly roasty.Starts very malty, with a slight roasted malt note. The aftertaste is slightly bitter, the taste really pulls out a long time. To the center part of the aftertaste it is slightly sweet. Great Bockbier!
