BeerViking (2874) - 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 .

oh6gdx (21544) - 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 (2874) - 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 (198) - 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.

sinte (378) - Udine, ITALY - OCT 16, 2014
Bottle 0.5L. Clear reddish/brown body with small, frothy, tan head, mostly diminishing with virtually no lacing. Moderate malty (caramel, light roasted) and light hoppy aroma, with notes of alcohol. Moderate sweet and light-to-moderate bitter flavour with some acidic note. Light-to-medium body with watery-to-oily texture; soft carbonation; light alcoholic feeling in the finish.

bartlebier (2358) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - OCT 7, 2014
50cl screwtop, Stadelbauer, bb: NN. Rather thin ruby-maroni pour, almost translucent. Fruity sugary nose of plum wine, Vitamalz, pear syrup. Taste is nearly the same with that diluted pear/apple syrup quality to it, with a redeeming drinkability and not too much sugar. Soggy mouthfeel. Balancing dryish hop bitterness underneath.

DSG (7456) - Tel Aviv, - JUL 24, 2014
Bottle. Nice clear reddish chestnut brown color with a rather stable beige head. Aroma of malt, caramel, light toastiness and a nutty note. Sweet malty flavor with caramel, a bit of toast, some dark bread, nuts and a slightly drier finish. Medium-bodied. Alright.

Bottle 50cl, a clear dark amber beer with low off white head. Nose is on caramel and light grapes. Aroma is on toasted grain and caramel, toffee, brown bread notes, light candied fruit, medium sweet, pleasant but not that complex.Finish on toffee again with barley sugar and honey touch.
