COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Lovers of strong beer need not worry that ERDINGER Weissbier Pikantus 'dark bock beer' is going to be too sweet, as is the case with so many bock beers. Despite the higher alcohol content, the Erding brew masters have succeeded in retaining the special Pikantus taste.

I have had this many times over the years. A favorite in a pub overlooking the dom in Bamberg, germany. Nice dark appearance with a roasty chocolate taste. Love the bock beer taste.

Beergaard (174) - Aarhus, DENMARK - APR 30, 2015
Murky brown color, very short lived head, highly carbonated. Malty, yeasty and sligtly herb and banan like aroma. Taste is spicy with sweet malty and esthery notes. Quite refreshing and not bad at all.

I’m not a fan of dark beers, but this one is very safe. Has a pleasant taste, nice smell, good looking. Would definitely drink on almost any occasion.

onceblind (5176) - Denver, Colorado, USA - APR 9, 2015
Dark nutty brown with a thin rocky light tan head. Nice toasted malt nose with a bit of bock-tinged sugariness and earthy dry toffee. Generally very bock-y aroma. Smooth and balanced flavor with earthy toffee, a bit of toasted bread, a kiss of nuttiness and a touch of mayble clove? Robust and rich but also a touch one-dimentional. Basic bock action here, though maybe less doughy/bready than other bocks. I mean, obviously it’s a weizen bock but theres not a terrible amount of weizen to the flavor. But still, pretty great all around.

Dark golden - light brown colour with creamy head. Aroma and flavour of caramel, bananas, fruits. Little presence of alcohol but in second half of a bottle it become somehow watery. In comparison with the best weizen bocks is an average beer.

Hyviä viitteitä, muttei tarpeeksi vahvasti. Jossain taustalla on Makuja, mutta ei ne oikein tulee esiin.

W zapachu nuty winne. Smak dość łagodny, lekko torfowy, na początku kwaskowaty, na końcu słodkawy, ulotny.
