Ben blij dat ik weer een paar kratjes op de kop heb kunnen tikken! Is altijd snel uitverkocht. Een van de mooiste bock bieren en dat volgens het reinheitsgebot Vol van smaak lekkere bitter en makkelijk drinkbaar!

Dobre w malej buteleczce swing top. Piekna i trwala puszysta piana. Zapach cukru zkarmelizowanego i swiezej moreli. Kolor jasno niedziany. W smaku tresciwe i slodowe ale nie uciazliwe, alkohol niewyczuwalny. Lekko przyprawowe jakby. Spodziewalem sie sporo gorszych wrazen ale bylem zdziwiony kosztujac to piwo.

Biergartler (3) - GERMANY - FEB 6, 2011 does not count
fine reddish brown colour; taste also tasty on one side sweetishly, on the other side, however; is somehow tangy; moreover, it gets a little smoky, pleasant in the aftertaste

SilverfoX (67) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
dough, bubblegum, waft up from the pale gold body the head has vanished even as i type, medium sweetness, salty, quite rich tasting the flavour escapes me fro the minute... like an exceptionally mild cough syrup? full body, thick feel, soft carbonation, despite the other ratings this is nice well worth trying! bottle from beers of europe.

McWorta (487) - LUXEMBOURG - MAR 7, 2010
Caramel malts, a bit floral, grassy hops. Wee head with golden/orange colour and relatively cleary-hazy liquid. Rather sweet with a bit of bitterness and a full body- Slick texture and light fizzy carbonation with long finish. Overall a really good beer, excellent winterbock!

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.

Leighton (9855) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 31, 2013
Bottle at Bruce’s - London. I got this one in Austria. Vintage 2011. Pours clear, deep gold with a fine, creamy white head. Sugary bread on the nose, some caramel, hints of tangerine. Medium sweet flavor, light dry bread and caramel, some semi-dry fruits, dates. Light to medium bodied with fine, creamy carbonation. Sweet finish, further bready malts, hints of caramel, semi-ripe fruits. Very drinkable. Lovely.

KnutAlbert (5776) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 26, 2008
Bottle brought home from Berlin. Dark gold, fluffy head. Strong maltiness, warming alcohol, bittersweet finish. Well constructed, fine bock. Stong in every sense of the word.
