gputty (456) - Virgina Beach, Virginia, USA - JAN 21, 2007
From bottle courtesy of Immy. Copper pour with ring of off white foam. Nose is vegetable malts with sweeter malt in the flavor. Not too bad, but the nose really messes this one up.

Countbeer (5147) - Best of E-Town mit 2 Brauhausen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle: Shaker: Meeium sized creamy head. Copper amber colored body. Aroma is a mix of caramel, malts, honey, herbs, darker fruits... Flavours of malts, caramel, toast, brown sugar tints, bitters, some prunes, marzipan and herbs... Aftertate is bitter, malty, caramel, honey and some herbs. Low carbo, creamy close to silky mouthfeel, more than just medium bodied. Nice stuff.

OOKPIKABLE (168) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 14, 2015
Pours brown with quickly dissipating white head. Minimal aroma of brown sugar. Minimal taste (though smooth). Tastes flat. A disappointment.

jksipa (487) - 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 (626) - 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 (216) - 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.

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.
