3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
One of the best in the series. Pours a clear medium brown, with small to medium off-white head. Aroma is smoky, roasted malt, toasty, some bread and caramel, with a hint of earth. Taste is towards the sweet side, but with a hint of bitterness. Body is medium full, with a lingering bitter finish.

Good smell and taste. The flavor keeps inside her long and even finish. I thought this beer would be good at all but it was okay as me. Pretty mediocre beer.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at home. Pours a very deep clear brown colour with a medium beige head. Nice sweet aroma of leather, dried fruit, dark chocolate and lactose. More of the same in the flavours but with more roast and coffee. Soft and creamy mouth feel, and light bitterness. A light and great weizen bock. Wonderful aroma and a nice balance.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
What? Can a weizen bock be this dark? Cool! The body is dark brown, almost black and quite murky with lots of particles of all sizes. Large, creamy, long-lived, light-brown head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is strong and doesn’t remind me of a wheat beer at all, this is roasted malt all over the place! It’s sweet with lots of caramel and a good deal of dark dried fruits, lots of raisins. There might also be some sourish yeasty notes far in the back. The taste is heavy sweet with a light bitterness in the finish, and also a very light sourness. Quite strong roasted flavours with caramel, dark dried fruits and mild coffee. And deep down there I think I get some spicy hints. Full body with a thick, oily texture and very soft carbonation. I really like the thick sweet sugary feel of this one and the roasted notes are delicious. The definition of a weizen bock is obviously very loose, this one isn’t remotely close to the other beers of this style I’ve tried. And I’ve tried lots of them, 3 to be exact.

Flaske 0,33l fra Vinmonopolet, bestillingsutvalget. Ultradyprød. Høyt luftig, litt farget skum som varer. Forsiktig aroma av søt malt. Smaken er søt. Veldig søt. Bare det. Antydning til litt bitterhet i avslutninga.
