33cl bottle. A average bock. It has a nice dark color. The texture is oily, but the taste was too sweet for me.

kiwianer (3317) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 28, 2012
Dieser Herfstbock hat eine schöne, kräftige dunkle Farbe und eine mittelmäßig-gut haltende Schaumkrone. Er riecht dunkelmalzig, fruchtig und etwas alkoholisch. Der Geschmack ist süß-alkoholisch und dunkelmalzig-alkoholisch, für einen Bock ist er mir etwas zu mild. Der alkoholisch-dunkelmalzige Nachgeschmack bleibt sehr schön ein paar Minuten auf der Zunge erhalten. Fazit: Ordentlich, ein gutes Bier für Geniesser die nicht soviel Geld für etwas gutes auslegen möchten! Test vom 19.12.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 11,11,11,12,12,12 - 11,60

_angst_ (2556) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 25, 2012
Bottle courtesy of Ekstedt shared @ Ekstedts bock-tasting. Pours clear chestnut brown with a white head that quickly dissipates while leaving some trace on the glass. Smell is sweet and rather subtle with caramel, bread, sweet dried dark fruits and hints of alcohol. Taste is sweet and malty with dark bread, golden syrup, raisins and hints of caramel. Mouthfeel is tiny sticky sweet and medium bodied. Finish is sweet with bread, golden syrup and sadly a weird puke-like taste.

brugmanneke (278) - GERMANY - MAR 6, 2012
(bottlle) Reddish brown colour with a small off-white head. Malty aroma with caramel and milk chocolate as well as grassy/herbal hops and a mineral touch. Taste is medium sweet and bitter. A bit sticky and alcoholic. Aftertaste not too heavy thanks to fresh hoppy notes in the finish. Not bad, but not great either - for my taste of course.

Vaiz (3256) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - DEC 9, 2011
Bottle at home. Clear deep amber pour, foamy light brown head. Aroma is dry, spicy and with some red fruits and molasses. Flavor is slightly roasted, licorice, spicy and with a hint of red wine. A bit watery and thin, but a well balanced and nice flavor. Decent macro bock.
