BeerViking (3477) - Brentford, Greater London, - NOV 11, 2012
Dark chestnut brown with thin beige head, caramel, touches of peach and coffee and a hint of banana on the nose. Roasty rich body with a good balance of crisp earthy bitterness and dark fruit. A nice strong Franconian dunkel .

The aroma is caramel malt abundant and an almost sticky sweetness that fortunately short-lived and not too sickly. It is a very beautiful and hearty bock where hops bitterness only just chipping in with a slight tint. As bock I will probably think that it is too sweet, but I have almost learned that in the old days sweetened its bock with powdered sugar, and with that knowledge in mind, I would still say that this bock is a good and kind right bid for a bock of the old-fashioned kind.

Nanu... Wo ist denn der Schaum... Naja ok.. Die Farbe ist rotbraun. Das Aroma hat malzige Züge und Milchchokolade. Cremig-rezentes Mundgefühl. Malziger Antrunk. Süßer Abgang.

luttonm (3416) - Seattle, Washington, USA - JUL 8, 2015
.5l bottle at Foraperfora in Trieste. Twist top like cola, odd. Light cola pour, small tan head. Slightly smoky, dark woody grain. Quite tasty. A bit banana sweet. Solid, tasty.

Bottle from my father who bought it in Germany. Fruity and dark malty smell with some caramel. Malty taste with caramel. Alright but a bit onesided.

Calisky (2015) - ALSACE, FRANCE - APR 9, 2015
Couleur brune sombre, très légère mousse. Nez fruité (pomme banane) et caramel. Gout fruité pareil, avec caramel, pain toasté et grain, assez sucré. Bon corps. Fin de caramel fruité assez rapide.

oh6gdx (23682) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 29, 2015
Bottled. Deep reddish brown colour with a small beige head. Aroma is caramel malts, some alcohol, ripe fruits and earth. Flavour is ripe fruits, alcohol, some caramel malts, mild syrupy notes as well as quite much bitterness compared to a "typical" German Bock.

kerenmk (3483) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - NOV 22, 2014
Bottle. Murky coke brown. Burnt caramel and a little earth and cherry in the nose, burnt caramel sweetness in the mouth. Medium body, soft fizz and that caramel aftertaste.

Lele (278) - Padova, ITALY - NOV 3, 2014
ASPETTO: marrone coca-cola un po’ più chiaro, limpido. Schiuma non molto fine, scarsa e poco persistente. AROMA: lievi toni maltati. GUSTO: appena messa in bocca, si avverte un’abbondante carbonizzazione. Si avverte anche l’amaro, ma non abbondantemente. Nella parte finale della bevuta, emerge un tenore maltato, che ci ricorda che abbiamo a che fare con una bock. Retrogusto amarognolo. Sapori non accentuati. Birra che presenta solo due sapori, e anche lievi e disomogenei. Non si fa ricordare.
