Emelisse is great in tuning up ordinary beer styles. This bock is a bit different from other bocks, all ingredients are a little more tasty and special. Nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep reddish brown with a thin, tan, frothy, lacy, mostly lasting head. Sweet smell of toasted grain, lots of malt, caramel and an earthy tone with a ting of sourness. Medium oily body with soft carbonation. Tastes nutty sweet with burnt caramel and chocolate notes and finishes with a sour sweet overcooked toffee end. A excellent balance of sweet and sourness. Smooth to drink

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Bierkoning. Clear dark red pour with thin tan foam. Aroma is very toasty, toasted grain really put forward with rich caramelized malt notes following. Taste is sweeter, rich burnt caramel, light toasted grain, a hint of raisin bread. Palate is med-full and aggressively carbed but leaves a long smooth lingering finish. Very robust bock, without ever being over the top. Yum

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 330 ml at home, into a snifter. ABV 6.5%
Deep red brown colour on the body that turns to a deep ruby red when hold against the light. Something more than one finger of foam, off-white in colour and thick, with average retention. Heavy lacing left on the glass.
Aroma is mainly of roasted malts.A touch of sourness on it. Little bit of chocolate.
Taste has more of the chocolate notes, roasted malts again, sweet and lightly sour. Some caramel and toffee as well.
Medium thick body, low carbonation. Good dry palate.
Overall a tasty bock.

brown, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, medium body, flat carbonation. Especially the flat carbonation makes it a bit boring.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rotbraun, trüb, etwas Schaum. Würzmalziges Aroma. Dünner (!) Antrunk. Karamell, Butterscotch, Kohl, diverse Fehlaromen. Bitter-säuerlicher Abgang. Aromenarm, dünn, langweilig und für das Ergebnis einfach viel zu teuer. Schlecht!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Clear brown colour, cream head. Aroma of caramel, malts, coasted malts, light banana, bread. Sweetish caramel flavour, bitter roasted malts, nuts. Bitter finish, caramel. Decent beer, quite nice bock, but I’m not a real big fan of the genre.
