Koelschtrinker (11037) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 23, 2011
Süßer aber nicht übertriebender Malzantrunk. Etwas schokoladenmalzig, weich, aber auch etwas wässrig. So ist das Bier ausgewogen, könnte aber noch intensiver sein. Erst spät wird das Bier würzig, langt dann aber richtig zu. Störend ist bei der herben Unterstützund der Kräuternoten aber die Süße, die zwar einerseits die Wässrigkeit verdrängt, andererseits aber so schmeckt, als seit das Bier nicht langegenug gelagert worden. Isngesamt gut. 8/9/10/9/10/9

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - MAR 28, 2011
Bottle. A light sweet aroma, light malty, weak smell of licorice. Th head is very small, fizzy and beige with a short duration. The body is brown. The taste is light malty with some chocolate. The body is medium strong, dry and light creamy with a flat carbonation. A good bock which could have a little bit more carbonation or body.

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.

JanEric (1027) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 3, 2009
Red brown, very small head. Aroma is malty and with molasses. Taste is light bitter, malty, a bit like caramel and molasse. Reasonable finish, It’s nice.

pivnizub (9004) - 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.........
