Beautiful chestnut brown bock with pretty solid white foam. The fragrance reveals ample use of malt. Both barley and wheat malt are used and wheat malts fresh aroma of freshly harvested grain shines through fine in flavor. The taste is rich of dark caramel and provides long malty mouthfeeling. Moderate hoppy so that it maintains the crisp edge between malt and hops and pulls a long aftertaste. Alcohol with its 8% tastes a bit through the malt, and I would almost characterize it as a double bock. In the aftertaste also lurk some nuts and dark chocolate, and it is a bock which certainly provide competition to the German bocks as clearly inspired by them also. It is a positive and good surprise to taste it.

Bottle @ home. BB 2012-02. Clear dark amber and reddish color and a lasting beige head, no lacing. Malty and moderate sweet aroma with grains, caramel, red fruits, wheat and biscuits. Lightly vinous, with lightly and well integrated cardboard from aging. Sweet, fruity and with a smooth texture. Medium to big mouth feel. Taste has notes of malt, gooseberry, red apples, biscuits, wheat and some syrup. A bit of watery sensation (for a bock) appears in mid taste. Drier finish with earth, honey and balanced bitterness. Has aged really well.

PapaVillum (679) - Valby, DENMARK - OCT 2, 2014
0,5 l, flaske, 8,0 % ABV, BB 11/03/14, købt i Barley Wine i CPH City, 2. oktober 2014. Mahognifarvet og ufiltreret Dunkler Bock med flot 1 1/2 cm tyk offwhite-farvet skumkrone, som svinder til lidt bobler i overfladen og kant. Solid aroma af ristet malt, brød og en smule vinøsitet dybt nede. Grundig og helt igennem gennemført smag af Bock, som jeg kan lide den. Bitter, men med god sødme og i svælget efterlades man igen med en massiv humlebitterhed. En opsummering må lyde: Middel bitterhed, middel sødme, minimal surhed. God kraftig krop med fin og afstemt karbonering, som ligger en snert under middel. Rar mundfølelse og en konsistens, der er sticky. God og pæn lang eftersmag. Glimrende Bock og - igen - højt niveau fra Herslev.

Sigmund (5800) - Tau, NORWAY - JAN 1, 2012
500 bottle, from Vinmonopolet Vika. Batch #461. Unfiltered and unpasteurised. ABV is 7.5%. Hazy amber colour, large off-white head. Sweetish but nice aroma, ripe fruits, malts and some caramel. The flavour is also fruity and malty, medium sweet, with tolerable hops in the finish. The alcohol is not very well hidden, but that’s okay - after all, this IS a bock. Quite enjoyable.
