3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: MAY 30, 2014 33cl bottle - quite pleasant caramel & nuts bock with a light body, hence well drinkable but hardly an example that will turn over the non-enthused of the style or make a case for enjoying it out of season.../rerate V14: did not realise I’d had this before...thoroughly enjoyed the well-balanced rich mix of abbey dubbel notes this time (prune, caramel roast, butterscotch) with even coffee and late liquorice rounding off the augmented Bock experience on a stout note. +0,5

Bottled. Murky reddish amber colour with a small slightly off-white head. Aroma is sweet malts, some nuttyness, mild caramel and some slight grassyness. Flavour is caramel, bread, some earth, herbs and mild nuttyness. Quite pleasant bock, and actually feels quite much like a lager.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(Bottle, 0.33 l - BBE 06/2013, at Pikkulintu, 20130306) The beer poured dark brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, chocolate and molasses. Palate was full bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were mildly roasted malts, molasses, grass, malts and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty and bitter. Nice but a bit too booze flavoured bock.
