3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Strong strawberry aroma. The color was a swampy green brown with a big off-white head. The flavor had lots of licorice. You could feel the alcohol, this beer wasn’t as balanced as it could be. It even had a little bit of a metallic aftertaste. Despite all that I still liked it.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark, murky appearance with a large, fluffy almost white head. Aroma is richly malty with fruit, banana-like esters, spice and some background alcohol. The flavour is sweet and malty with apparent alcohol and some fruit. This is quite drinkable:)

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Dark mahogany in color. Thick brownish head. True to the brewer’s description, it is not too sweet like some bocks. I guess I prefer a hoppier beer. I could drink one of these occasionally. I am sure that bock lovers would feel this is a very good beer. But to my own taste buds - ehhhh, so-so.

500ml. Pours ebony with garnet highlights and a dirty white head that reduces to a ring of fizz that keeps moving for a while. Smoke, sugar, and chocolate on the nose; they’re joined by molasses on the tongue. That palate, though--the sugars come up, and so do the fizz. The aggressive bubbles really score the stuff against the surfaces of the mouth, it’s harsh and raw. It’s fun, it’s interesting and drinkable, but the rawness really subtracts from it. It ends up not being subtle or complex enough to make up for the sweet and the fizzy.

The aroma is smokey and full of malt. It looks a lot darker than my other doublebocks. Quite picuant flavour (hah!), which means that it’s quite hoppy. Very nice beer. Not that special actually, just very good stuff.

Bottled. Thick flat black body, had a cappuchino head for a while. Aroma of wet glass and liquorice. Full of yeasty goodness, slight sweetness, carbonation brings a creamy palate.
