Zlotta (832) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 26, 2015
On tap at PINT Bokbierfestival 2015. Clear, reddish amber with a creamy, slowly diminishing, tan head. Sweetish-malty aroma of brown sugar, caramel, nuts and hints of coffee. Sweetish-malty taste of brown sugar, caramel and nuts, followed by a short, slightly bitter, coffeish finish. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Good.

Benzai (11840) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - OCT 18, 2015
Sampled from bottle @ Eindhovens Bierfestival. Clear dark amber to amber - brown color, small to average sized off-white to beige head that diminishes fairly quickly. Smell and taste malts, a bit sweetish, malt sweetness, a hint of leaves, a hint of chestnut, hazelnuts, lightly a malt bitter hint in the finish as well. Decent body and carbonation.

Bottle from Oase. Chewy malt nose, caramel, vanilla. Glowing red-brown with lace. flavor of peaches, oranges, huge malt, raisins. Great malt character but not overly sweet or cloying. Rather dry finish. Great bock.

massingasetta (555) - München, GERMANY - MAR 7, 2015
This doppelbock is no ordinary doppelbock, it tastes like a strong Kellerbier. Though I am no fan of such strong alcoholic beers, this is a rare exception of a good doppelbock that is fairly drinkable.

Theydon_Bois (14969) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle (from Rewe Freising), on the train from Schwanndorf to Amberg, Bamberg post Xmas jolly day 1 - 24/01/14. Vibrant chestnut brown with a good sized beige head that retains well - a handsome beer ! Nose is brown bread, nutty twang, dark fruits, molasses, brown sugar, malty. Taste comprises dark toffee, rye bread, brown sugar, raisens, dates. Medium bodied with a little oomph, fine carbonation, semi drying close with a lick’o’booze. Decent D-Bock, one of the best (top 5) train beers of this trip!
