Finally get to try the dunkel bock category after over two years on RB and five years as a beer geek! Excited! Pour: amazing head on this one. More than a finger length, and the retention and lacing are amazing to behold. Copper color with ruby hints underneath. 5 on appearance. Aroma, unfortunately, is heavily skunked by the green bottling. Beyond the skunk, I smell the dark malts, but it’s just too overpowered by the skunk overall. Taste: malt-forward, slight booze, yet feeling somehow crisp and light at the same time. Whenever beer rookies make the mistake of thinking dark=heavy (due to the influence of stouts), or that craft rookies make the mistake of thinking lager=lack of flavor, this would be a good beer to show them. Hope to find more in this style in the future.

maekchu (1943) - Hirakata, JAPAN - MAY 29, 2014
Bottle from Yamaichi. Medium-sharp malty nose, with raisins, grain, and light cola. Deep copper/brown. Sweet raisins, dates, harsh edge in mid from hopping, goes flat, and then a bit of sugary sweetness in final. Some alc. warmth. Medium body. Nose is promising, but flavors don’t develop very well.

A clean honey like sweetness. It comes off almost too sweet but then abruptly becomes bitter and quite floral. It’s ok

Jimthechap (1539) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 26, 2014
Thanks to Cantabrian. It was perfect amber with a good cream coloured head. The aroma was a good showcase of German malts. Perfumy and sweet. The body was sweet with a malt extract type texture and flavour. This dries to become tart with flavours of mandarin and tangerine. This was intensely flavoured and long finishing.

Case (212) - GERMANY - APR 23, 2014
Pours clear copper bronze with medium white head. Aroma of dark malts and biscuits. Taste is huge caramel sweetness that meets very bitter grassy herbal hops. Dry finish. The bold flavors are so exquisitely balanced that it drives drinkability through the roof. I can drink this all night. This is the original Bock beer from the North that gave the style its name. A personal favorite.

BOTTLE 33CL from Erzengel. Thanks, Gabriel! Look: clear copper with a light beige head. Aroma: strong light kilned malts and grains, some toffee. A trace of hops maybe? Taste: light caramel sweetness balanced by quite some bitterness. Light bitter and long finish.

A simple, clean and very drinkable bock.

33cl. Bottle.
Pours clear light brown with off-white head.
Aroma bread, caramel, hay, some roasted malts.
Taste bad sweet, little bitter.
Mouth-feel thin.
Bad stuff don’t like it.
