bluevegie (3059) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2006
Really deep ruby red body with an off-white head. Fairly smooth taste, a touch of spice accompanying some lovely malts, thins a bit towards the finish, caramel and some burnt characters in the aroma as well as the taste. A good bock but not a great bock.

MoritzF (8590) - Bochum, GERMANY - JAN 30, 2006
(Thanks bierkoning for the bottle) Clear and ruby dark amber colour with a small foamy off-white head. A bit shy but quite sweet dark malt aroma with caramel and a tinge of herbal hops. Sweet flavour, medium to full bodied, smooth carbonated mouthfeel. Sweet malty initial taste with dark and slightly roasted malts, caramel, also toffee; drying out sweetness towards the end; malty and slightly hoppy and bitter finish. Tastes like a German malt lozenge but is not too sweet for my kind of taste. A fairly good Bock.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - OCT 20, 2005
This is a rather normal bock. Sweet aroma and taste. A bit spicy, but not as a regular bock.Enjoyable, but not special.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) Mahogany coloured with a warm, red glow. Very classical dark and malty beer with a pronounced sweetness fully balanced by a good, dry hoppy finish. Nice beer that just needs a bit in personality to be a great Bock. 110304

Ungstrup (29849) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2004
A red-brown beer with a nice light brown head. The aroma is very sweet with notes of spices, malt, and caramel. The flavor is very sweet with notes of caramel, spices, banana, and hints of hops.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2004 Great bockbeer! Very dark, brown beer with a large longlasting head and a full, intense aroma. Pretty sweet but not too overwhelming, very easy to drink, and the aftertaste is really fine, warming, sweet and slightly alcoholic..
