2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(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.

2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours a brown beer with big foam. Not a very good Bock, taste is rather bitter with a much to boring aroma. I was slightly let down.
