Stefano (1864) - Esbjerg, DENMARK - OCT 31, 2006
Dark golden color, small white head. Malty, a bit honeyish aroma. The taste is pretty alcoholic, with a sweetish, slightly spicy taste. Pleasent dryness in the finish.

johndoughty (3844) - cheslyn hay, West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 9, 2006
Swing top bottle.Golden, although for some reason i thought it would be dark.Poured with a medium head and had a lovely well balanced sweetness. Good alcohol presence and all round an excellent bock.

JonMoore (1840) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2006
Bottle. Orange colour with a large white head. Sweet and malty aroma, with some caramel. Flavours are sweet malts, caramel and some late hops. I don’t get the over powering alcohol others refer to. Medium to full bodied. Pretty good.

EithCubes (4701) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 17, 2006
Tiny swing-top. Clear orange with a short beige head. Smells of grape and spice, and mildly of alcohol. Nice and malty. Smooth, full body, very mild. Alcohol’s actually well-hidden, save for the slight kick at the end. A very pleasant bock, wonderfully smooth mouthfeel, but lacking strong flavor.

thewolf (11099) - Kolding, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2006
Very dark yellow colour, veering into amber. Acceptable off-white head. Aromas of caramel, cocoa and mostly rye bread. The taste is slightly vinious with strong hints of caramel. Good and warming beer.

onystrom (1318) - Magellan Hunter! - Skanderborg, DENMARK - MAY 3, 2006
Beautiful amber color with fine head. Sweet malty and slightly hoppy full taste so a good Bock.

jkbier (66) - Rostock, GERMANY - MAR 2, 2006
Bottle. Darker amber with a medium off-white head that dissipates quite fast and leaves no foam at all behind. Aroma of malt, candy and toffee with a touch of alcohol. The flavor offers basically the same as the aroma, yet with a stress on a sweet, slightly roasted malt. Hints of fruity flavors. The alcohol is quite well hidden. A bit watery though and could well have some more CO2. All in all a good Bock.
