3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (traded with EithCubes, thank You!) : Deep ruby amber coloured, smaller off-white head, quickly diminishing to a foamy layer; sweet-fruity (black berries), dark toasted-malty aroma, a bit yeasty/hoppy; sweetish-bitter flavour, medium bodied; sweetish, slightly alcoholic and fruity finish, balanced by some bitterness in the aftertaste. Not bad, but a bit too much on the sweet side...........

VEyr good, a little too sweet and watery perhaps, not so strong as I would have thought. Very dark and good foam.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle, traded with EithCubes) Clear, dark reddish-brown colour with a bubbling foamy off-white medium head. Quite complex aroma: slightly dusty and sweet toastmalty nose with a touch of toffee and dense fruity notes of dark berries. Medium sweet flavour, toastmalty taste with toffee and fruity undertones; sweet malty, slightly hoppy finish with a well-integratic warming alcoholic touch. A solid and decent Bock.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled. Dark brown pour, ruby with backlighting, and a tan head. Malty aroma, overly sweet caramelly taste. Pleasantly mild, dry, sweet roasted malt finish. Medium-bodied. Nothing really wrong here, a bit too sweet, though.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Apple and raisin aroma; sweet taste with caramel toffee and apple aromas; bitterish finish with fruit and toffee.
A bit too caramelly, but inoffensive enough.
