Marko (4263) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 17, 2015
Thanks Ogi! Dark red, just slightly tinged with amber, lovely. Off white thick head, medium retention. Slightly lighter than the Dunkel, but as pretty. Fine malty aroma, light bubblegum, grainy, slightly husky notes underneath, coffee and chickpeas, light. Taste... eh. The dunkel is better. Just slighty metallic/herbal. Dry, almost no alcohol presence, just slightly sweetish, slightly dry maltiness. Eh.

Moravius (806) - Berlin, GERMANY - NOV 11, 2014
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2014 Flasche (50 cl) von Getränke Hoffmann, Berlin. - Schwarzbraun mit rötlichem Schimmer. - In der Nase schwaches Röstmalz, Rosinen, Wein und eine muffige Hopfenextraktnote. - Im Antrunk kräftiges Röstmalz mit etwas unangenehm künstlicher, malzbierartiger Süße, geschickt mit fruchtiger Säure abgeschmeckt. Etwas Paranuß und Milchkaffee. Mild rezent, für ein Bockbier recht schlank, jedenfalls ohne die kernige Schwere, die man mit einem Bock verbindet. Im Abgang nur schwach bitter, etwas hart, ohne richtige Hopfenaromen. - Eigentlich eine ausgezeichnete Idee, ein Bockbier mit etwas Röstmalz sozusagen dunkelbierartig aufzuziehen, aber das Ergebnis leidet unter der Verwendung von Hopfenextrakt und vielleicht auch anderen kostensparenden Verfahren (der dünne Malzkörper deutet darauf hin). Herausgekommen ist ein recht einspuriger, etwas billig wirkender Bock. Aber das wunderbar kitschige Etikett mit dem springenden Hirsch im Wald ist eine Augenweide!

rotaman14 (299) - Potsdam, GERMANY - OCT 8, 2014
Amber colour, off-white head. Weak aroma of grass, some hops and caramel. Sweet beer, with a thick mouthfeel and a long finish. Nice.

MichaelAwesome (5552) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2014
Ein feines mit einer netten Ladung Malz und ein wenig an Karamellen. Recht süffig, stellenweise nussig und unaufgeregt. Zu empfehlen.

McTapps (5553) - Ruhrcity, GERMANY - MAY 4, 2014
Pours out of the bottle in a deep dark brown colour with low head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of dark barley and malt. Taste of malt, bread, barley, caramel and flowers. Intense and quaffable finish - nice one for its style.
