Aroma is malty with some coffee, nuts and chocolate. Flavour is malty and slightly tart with some coffee, hints of chcolate and alcohol. Good, somewhere between Dunkel and Dunkler Bock. Does not look or taste like Heller Bock.

Pours an amber colour with a white head. Aroma of toasted malts, grass and grainy malts. Flavour of toasted malts, nuts, grains, grassy hops and some dried fruits. Medium bodied, dryish malty finish and some alcohol. Something between a Heller Bock and a Dunkler Bock.

MiP (15296) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - OCT 18, 2008
Bottle, 6.5%. Citric and sour aroma, a bit unpleasant. Clear dark brown colour, fizzy head disappearing completely. The flavour is malty, but also a bit sour and quite clearly infected. Almost drinkable. Unexpected from such a big brewery.

yngwie (16517) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - OCT 30, 2007
Bottle. Clear, reddish brown body with an off-white head. Some cooked vegetables in the aroma, but luckily they disappeares rather quickly, and are replaced by some alcohol, malt and a roasted note. Sweet and malty flavor, with a little fruityness and dried fruits. Medium to full body. Sweet, malty finish. I miss some of that warming feeling, but it is a quite nice bock. (070928)

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUL 3, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl). Beautiful deep amber coloured beer with no head to speak of. Actually surprisingly light for a bock, with a small body. Or else I’m enjoying it too cold. Sweetness yes. Bitterness, yes. But this bock doesn’t make the bells peal. 250903
