2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle @ Plan B Cph.
Pours a deep red with a small, creamy, off-white head on top. Aroma has lots of rye bread some plums and doughiness. Low carbonation, fair mouthfeel - slightly creamy. Flavour starts off a bit metallic, lots of rye bread again and is pretty sweet. Very little chocolate, but there are plums and coconut (?). A bit of hoppiness at the far end. Not my thing.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. A clear, copper beer with a beige head. Sweetish, slightly fruity nose with cooked vegetables playing a too big part. Caramel-sweet and grainy, rather fruity flavor with the vegetables being too evident here too. Quite thin body for a bock. Cooked vegetables, sweet maltyness and some hops in the finish, but low on bitterness. Ok for a bock though. A drinkable, but not very well-crafted bock. (080731)
