4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The bottle looks really good, the beer in the glass also. Very dark, very fine foam. Tastes not as malty as other bockbeers, but also strong. The finish a little bit "earthy" - very interesting. Really good bock!

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle: Reddish-amber coloured, huge firm off-white head, slowly collapsing; fruity, a bit roastmalty nose with a touch of caramel and an unknown amount of hops in the background; moderate sweetish and (malty-) bitter flavour; medium bodied, soft MF; delicate sweet-malty anfd fruity finish with a light, a bit drier bitterness in the aftertaste. A pleasant, chewy, malt-accented brew....

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(bottle, with special thanks to pivnizub) Clear, dark amber colour with a fluffy stable beige foamy head. Sweet and slightly nutty malty aroma, roasty with caramel, dark chocolate and a shy hoppy note. Sweet flavour, medium to full body, smooth carbonation. Strong malty taste with roasted notes and alcohol; sweet, later slightly bitter roast-malty and a bit sticky finish with notes of dark chocolate. Drinkable but not perfectly balanced.
