4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
I can’t remember i had a bock beer this good. The smell is mostly rye. The taste is sweet with the rye base there again with caramel, nuts, toast and a ripe fruit smooth finish. Lovely easy going beer. The only downside is maybe the balance. It’s a bit simple and sweet, not a beer you take a few of. Also there was nearly no foam in the glass, but not sure that was a glass problem or it’s the beer. Anyway, nice flavor packed and warming beer.

Bonito color marrón, no demasiada espuma blanca. Aroma a caramelo con toques de uva. Sabor menos dulce y mas frutal, aguada y con baja carbonatación y un final flojo.
