3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle @ home, thanks sint! Aroma is bready caramalized malt, some notes of hops (!) And spice. Flavour is quite bitter of roasty malt, burned caramel and hops. Some fruity notes. Weird how much hop profile is still left. Probably would be better with a bit less. The heavy carbonation does’nt do it any good.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, 330ml from Burg Bieren, Ermelo, Netherlands. Dark chestnut with cream head. Immediate impression was of a soft, fruity beer, dates, plums interlaced with a red wine alcohol note. Fullish on the palate with a good roasty malt note, some latent sweetness, just enough. An accomplished beer, very tasty, but not similar to many bocks I have had before.

Clear, amber body with a brown creamy head - long lasting. Full aroma of cara and burnt malts, smoke, grapes, fruit, ... Very complex and interesting nose. Heavily bitter, lightly sweey flavour: very nice and well balanced. Brilliant by being simple.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 30/0911, at Pikkulintu, 20110923) The beer poured dark brown and hazy. Its head was large, white and long lasting. Aroma had molasses, malts and Belgian style yeast. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, mild roastedness, yeast and bitterness. Aftertaste was yeasty, malty and bitter. The Belgian style yeast flavour and aroma pushed this beer very far from any bock.
