Dark amber to brown color. Very good aroma and impressive and balanced flavor : malt, a touch of roasted malt, caramel, very light smoked malt… One to get.

Bardzo smaczne i ładne piwo, zarówno od strony etykiety, pałakowej butelce ale również piwa. Piana średnia ale trwała, kolor ciemno bursztynowo-czerwony, z przewagą bordowych odcieni jednak. Karmelowy przypalony cukier miesza się z aromatem tofii i lekkiej goryczce. Finisz goryczkowy lecz stonowany, zdecydowanie dominują tu nuty słodowe, czyli tak jak być powinno.

Pours very dark; chocolatey amber with a small brown head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is very sweet malty and yeasty. Flavor has some nice belgium yeasty characteristics. Slight hints of toastiness but mostly malt. I thank my brother for bringing this back from Germany for me. Cheers!

Erzengel (7355) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2013
Schöne dunkelbraune Farbe, angenehm malzig-würziger Geruch. Der Antrunk ist vollmundig-süßlich-malzig. Sehr angenehm. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine leicht erdig-torfige Note hinzu, die dich mit einer angenehmen Herbe verbindend bis lang in den Nachgeschmack auf der Zunge hält. Schöne trockene Malzaromen mit angenehm säuerlich-frischem Touch. Sehr aromenreich und tiefgehend. --> Ein sehr leckerer Bock, der bei Zimmertemperatut sein volles Aromenrepertoire entfaltet! Danke an Kölschtrinker für dieses tolle Bier! (Test vom 12.12.2008) --> 12,13,12,13,12,13 - 12,70

Bottle from kappeldave123. Danke!
Pours deep bown with a sweet isopryl alcohol nose. Flavor is fat molasses chocolate pudding. Full mouthfeel. Nice brew.

Grima (2230) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2011
Beautiful dark brown color, cream-like head. The smell is rather reserved. Malty sweet and subtly roasty. It starts strong malty, with a nice sweet flavor. The aftertaste is roasty and almost a little chocolatey. Reminds partly to a good Stout. Fabulous Bockbier!

Oakes (15000) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2011
Ruby-brown colour. Rich thick bock, treacly tones, very chocolatey and earthy. Very nice - there’s some firm alcohol on the nose, not as much as on the palate.

Recenzja 10 sierpnia 2011 Czuć głównie nuty słodowe i karmelowe, jednak w bardzo przyjemnym wydaniu. Mimo dosyć sporego %, alkohol jest niewyczuwalny nawet pod dłuższym "odstaniu". Największym minusem jest chyba słabe wysycenie.

TorbenJensen (1444) - Valby, DENMARK - SEP 22, 2015
This bock has roughly foamy crown, one malty aroma of caramel, hard toasted malt and fruity flavor which also characterizes a good bock. The taste is initially easy and surprisingly gentle, but after the mouth gets used a little to reveal its sweet malt notes with distinct caramel, ripe berry fruits and a hop bitterness long and persistent. The alcohol gives it a little warmth and bite, and the Bock is really tasty.
