3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from AmmersinO, Vienna. Dark brown body, with medium, creamy, beige head, that dissipates quickly. Delicious, complex aroma of almond, plum, raisin, ripe banana, caramel, chocolate, some roast. Tastes of chocolate, dark dried fruits, almond, banana, nuts. Mouthfeel is medium, creamy, with a good carbonation and it finishes alcohol warming and sweet, with dark dried fruits and almond. Great! Unique, complex and also quaffable dark bock beer, that interestingly tastes like somewhere inbetween a Doppelbock and a Belgian dark strong ale.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. Pours a deep red-hued rusty brown body with a small creamy off-white head. Nose is dried fruits, unripe banana, raisins, figs and hints of grainy caramel. Taste is burnt sugar, raisins, bread crust and hints of dusty grains and caramel. Medium body and carbonation. There is something I can’t put my finger on in this beer, which kinda puts it apart from most bocks...oh well, in either case: I quite like it.
