Straling (364) - Hoensbroek, NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2009
On tap. Had this in a restaurant in Heerlen, The Netherlands. Pours a clear brown/orange colour with a good size head and little carbonation. Smells is just as a good autumn bock should be, nice and strong aroma of dried fruits, earthy and little bit of alcohol. Taste is also quite good, but a lot less exciting than the smell.

pivnizub (10102) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - NOV 12, 2009
On draught (PINT BBF 09): Clear, ruby-red coloured, small - but stable foamy layer ; sweet caramel and a very faint tinge of hops in the nose and, perhaps, with a touch of toasted malt; mainly sweet flavour, a bit sticky; lingering, not too sweet, taste of toffee and suppressed hops in the finish. O.K., not too great.........

thewolf (12027) - Kolding, DENMARK - NOV 10, 2009
Tap @ The Dutch Bockbier Festival, 2009.
Pours deep chestnut with a staying, cramy, off-white film head. Sweet aroma, light nutty, some barnyard, softly roasted. Medium carbonation, fine and lightly dry mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, nutty, pretty dry hoppiness. Softly roasted, no real alcohol. Long, lingering aftertaste. Really nice.

Clear medium amber red color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, off-white head. Aroma is moderate malty, roasted, caramel, nutty, brown sugar. Flavor is moderate to light heavy sweet and bitter with a average to long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. [20081115]

MartinT (9292) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 25, 2008
UPDATED: JAN 18, 2009 My Bottom Line:
Rich berry-laced caramel malt character exudes from this generous Dunkler Bock, before fading away into earthy hop bitterness.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the clear deep mahogany, drawing beautiful lacing.
-Carbonation is frothy, which alleviates the muscular maltiness and its dextrins.
-The flavor profile works quite well with the oncoming maderization (this bottle was over a year old).
-Herbal, grassy hops cannot balance out the sweet malt profile until the aftertaste.
-Light roastiness and toastiness appears within.
