Das dunkle Glückauf Bock wird nach einem geheimen Rezept gebraut. Es ist männlich stark, charaktervoll durch seine sympatische Röst-Note eines dunklen Malzes, es läuft flüssig-süffig über die Zunge. Eine wahre Spezialität, die von Kennern immer bevorzugt wird, weil es das Besondere ist.

jasonp (1564) - Ashburn, Virginia, USA - JAN 8, 2012
Bottle, given to me by a co-worker who just visited Germany. Pours an attractive, clear dark bronze with an off-white head. Nice toasted grain/caramel/dark fruit aroma with the slightest tinge of herbal hops in the background. Clean flavor - notes of dark caramel, toffee, plum, raisin, cola, light Noble hop character and a very clean yeast with no imperfections. Has a pleasant sweetness level which never gets cloying. Medium bodied with smooth texture and moderate carbonation. Very well-made- great session beer.

Chopper925 (365) - Gross Gerau, GERMANY - SEP 18, 2014
Bottle. Clear, choco brown color, small brown head. Bready, chocolate, caramel notes in the aroma. Taste is decent dry, bit sour and a bit alcoholic, almost no bitterness. Aftertaste has a few malty aromas, but not much. Texture is medium, fresh carbonation. Due to its low sweetness this Bock lacks the heaviness from other Bocks. Good drinkable, I would sort it in as a strong Dunkel.

Moravius (952) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2014
Flasche. - Tiefes Kastanienbraun, klar; kurzlebiger Schaum. - Nase süß röstmalzig, schwach fuselig. - Im Antrunk recht angenehme Kombination von Röstaromen (Kakao, leicht trocken) und nicht zu dicker Karamelsüße, abgeschmeckt mit zart pikanter Säure. Mild rezent, für einen Bock ungewöhnlich schlank. Im Abgang ein wenig dumpfe, trockene Herbe mit leicht holzigen Noten, leider ohne Hopfenaromen - hier verrät sich doch der Hopfenextrakt. - Etwas simpel gestrickter Bock; nichts Herausragendes, aber doch gut trinkbar (was man leider nicht von allen Glückauf-Bieren sagen kann). Die Süße wird nie zu dick, der Bock wirkt auch dank der trockenen Kakao-Noten beinahe süffig, jedenfalls nicht bocktypisch schwer. - Mein Exemplar hatte übrigens 6,3 % Alkohol.

MichaelAwesome (6157) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - MAY 18, 2014
Keine große Nummer, aber dabei dennoch recht süffig und gut trinkbar. Nussig, mit etwas Karamell und einer netten Portion Malz im Abgang. Vollkommen ok.
