omhper (18966) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - MAR 2, 2012
Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Clear nut brown. Restrained hay-like hops and roasty bread in the nose. Surprisingly dry with solid bready malt and lots of spicy hops. Minerally, very quenchable bock with really bitter, resiny finish. I really need to go to Franconia in bockbierzeit!

Bottled. Rubyish amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is bread, mild chocolate, some toasted malts, slight herbs and earth. Flavour is mild toasted malts, bigtime dry grassy bitterness as well as some chocolate and some mild toffee as well. Quite bitter and alternative bock!

EithCubes (4634) - New Jersey, USA - JAN 19, 2012
Swing-top bottle by 14.05.2012. Sweet, very rich caramel nose, light booze mingling also with dense fruit. Ruby-chestnut body with a rocky tan head. Taste is very surprisingly very dry, super dry; has a rubbery-astringent edge rather than hop bite. Roast with caramel, light bitterness seems more pronounced with no sweetness, even has some hay and wilder leanings. Soft and creamy light-medium body, much of the joy of drinking such a well-crafted brew drained by its sheer, unredeemed brutality.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 9, 2007
(bottle) Clear, chestnut colour with a medium-sized yellowish, lacing head. Sweet and moderately toasty malt aroma with a touch of barnyard and a spicy hoppy note. Sweet and slightly bitter flavour, medium bodied with a soft and pleasant carbonation. Malty, moderately toasted taste with a touch of liquorice; medium-sweet malty finish with a distinctive hoppy bitterness in the lingering aftertaste. Well-crafted and rounded Franconian Bock.
