janubio (467) - - JAN 9, 2013
500 ml. bottle, porus a small brown head, amber colour. Smells of caramel, chocolate, banana and dark fruits, with hints of vanilla. Very sweet palate, though I found the body too light. Taste of dark fruits, chocolate, xerry or port wine and a hint of coffee in the end, though it keeps the sweetness.

jksipa (477) - Newmarket, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 3, 2015
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear dark copper with a one finer tan head that fades quickly to a sheet. Nose is brown sugar with dark fruit and some floral and spice notes. Lightly sweet caramel and honey throughout with the faintest hint of fruity tartness. Thin slightly watery mouth with soft carbonation.

Frothmeister (623) - Ontario, CANADA - APR 22, 2015
500ml bottle. Pours a clear dark chestnut brown with a burgundy tinge and a one finger tan head that disappeared quickly. Earthy notes, brown sugar, and light fruity floral notes on the nose. Taste wise, lighter bodied and sweet with brown sugar, raisin, light minerality, and a bit of a floral taste that leads into more of the same with some malt, and yeast in the finish. It’s by no means complex, but it’s solidly enjoyable in the world of bocks. I’d buy it again.

didierlewallon (211) - ponferrada, SPAIN - APR 21, 2015
De color marrón caoba con reflejos rubí anaranjado, con una cabeza de espuma de color beige de poca persistencia. Aroma dulce y suave a caramelo, maltas tostadas y algo de fruta madura. En boca, malta tostada al inicio, seguido de ligero amargor herbal del lúpulo y terminación suave con regusto a caramelo. Cerveza buena, pero nada especial.

Vells (899) - Riga, LATVIA - APR 5, 2015
Intense maltiness, caramel, bread, light choco, molasses, some roasted brown sugar. Bit syrupy. Moderate sweetness with light bittersweet finish. Kinda lovely brew but feels bit unbalanced.

umestre (11) - - MAR 25, 2015
Aroma suave contrasta con lo que cabria esperar al servirla. De apariencia oscura con poca gasificacion leve toque amargo al inicio que se diluye despues, cerveza sobrepremiada para mi entender. Buen acompañamiento para un queso suave unos embutidos una carne de pollo

AleRider78 (131) - - MAR 15, 2015
Decent size head from pour, dark amber appearance. Some carbonation, good lacing. Aroma of bready malts, wheaty. Thick spicy flavours, roasted matls, with a bit of citrus and notes of raisins/grapes. Not too bad.
