The beer looks very nice. The beer is clear and has a reddish brown glow. The color is a beautiful ruby red. The beer is lighter than most bock beers. The beer forms quite a little bit of rough foam. The little bit of foam that does form has an almond color. The foam disappears quickly and a very small amount of rough foam remains on top of the beer. It’s a pity the foam isn’t thick and creamy. The smell is nice, but quite mild. I smell a little fresh hoppy note. I also smell some delicious sweet caramel aroma’s. This forms a very good contrast with the little hoppyness. There is also a little toasty aroma. The taste has the same nice flavors. I taste a little roast flavor, together with caramel. There is also a minimal chocolate hint. The beer has a nice fresh hoppy note. This is a beautiful contrast with the dark autumn flavors. The beer has a nice alcohol taste als wel. It’s a delicious bock beer.

Sixpack gekocht bij DirckIII. Ondergistend. Dit bier smaakt zacht en is niet te zoet. De alcohol is goed verborgen. De smaak is uitstekend in balans. Dit is wel het beste bockbier van dit seizoen.

Marduk (5380) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2015
330ml bottle. Very dark brown color. Small size, beige head, stays. Sweet, raisins, caramel, berries, metallic, prunes in aroma. Raisins, sweet, toffee, slightly woody and lots of caramel in taste. Caramel covered prunes in aftertaste. Feels thin and boozy at the same time. But also sweet and sticky. Improves slightly as it warms up.

MrHangover (3765) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear brown beer with a very nice, off white head on top that clings on the glass. Aroma is sweet, malty and quite yeasty and earthy. Flavor starts off medium bitter, crisp and transforms into a nice, sweet warming experience. Long sweet aftertaste, soft carbonation and good balance. Good stuff.

Vili (245) - FINLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with medium white head. Only a faint aroma of sweet malts and falling leaves. Taste a bit bland; good notes of caramel and orange that fade too quicly before the strange, soapy aftertaste. Feels a bit like oil in the mouth. Looks good but only satisfactory on the inside. Not bat but lacks any justification for existence.
