Ernest (6196) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 26, 2011
Rated at Hummel in Nov 2011. Head is mostly lasting. Body is dark amber-brown. Aroma is moderately malty (malt syrup, wort), with notes of rotten fruit, dirt, concrete. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation. Jaw-dropping. Embarrassing. Almost incomprehensible.

Koelschtrinker (10479) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Malziger Antrunk mit Hopfeneinfluss, untertönig etwas grasig-muffig. Im mittelteil erst etwas milder, dann wieder etwas malziger, hierbei ist ebenfalls ein süß-hopfiger Ton präsent. Etwas würziger werdend, die Süße relativiert dies etwas. Grasig-hopfiger Abgang, mittelmalzig. Interessant! Danke an MoritzF! Test vom 28.3.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,11,11,11,13,11 - 10,90

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 8, 2011
Draught at the brauhaus
Beautiful dark amber color; creamy head. The aroma is a bit dusty, and perfumy. The caramel flavor of this beer is richer than many other Bocks, with some sweetness; nevertheless there is some dusty character that I don’t get; in the final there is even a trace of bad coffee, and candies; and light boozy character. Enjoyable because of the body, but somehow strange. Confused.
