On tap at Arendsnest. Slightly hazy copper red pour with super creamy off-white foam. Aroma is roasty, toasted malt, nutty (hazelnuts), light molasses notes. Taste is rather sweet, a bit off, mostly sweet and fruity, lacks the nice toasty flavors found in the aroma. Palate is medium bodied with light carbonation, medium-dry finish. Not bad, but a little disappointed.

Bottle. Clear amber beer with a rich beige head. Malty caramel aroma, biscuits, dark bread, roasted notes. Malty caramel flavor, spicy notes, bready, quite harsh metallic. Not what you expect in a bock.

Bought a bottle at Bert’s Bierhuis. The color is reddish brown with a cream colored head, CO2 level is perfect. In the aroma tones of red fruits and a little sweetness of the caramel. The taste is dry and bitter with a light sweetness of the red fruits. The finish is fresh and dry and the bitterness is long noticable. Not my favorite bock, but not the worst.

Bottle 33cl, a dark brown beer with nice huge creamy head and very good retention. Nose is malty, caramel and spicy. Aroma is medium sweet, lot of spices such as cinnamon and paradise seeds, nice round buttery caramel, creamy feeling, light sourness, good and complex, finish is more like a stout with roasted notes and dark chocolate, coffee touch also, nice !

Very dark brown, creamy tan head. Smoky and burnt toast at first, later a bit grassy, dried fruits and yeast, but still some burnt/ashy touches. Thin body. Overall slightly too much ash for my taste.

33cl bottle @ home. Ruby red to cola color, hazy, brownish strong head. Aroma caramel, slightly smoky, malty, dark fruits, red wine notes, light coffee. Taste very light sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness. Medium body, thin feel, lively carbon, long lasting fine bitter finish. Great that sweetness is moderated, this is a fine, tasty bock bear, and easy to drink.

Decent bokbeer. Rubyred color, foam layer dissapears rather quickly. Fruity aroma. Taste of caramel and roasty flavors. Not bad at all.

Erzengel (2327) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 24, 2013
Best before was 27.10.12, so now more than one year over. The beer in the glass is dark brown, the nose quite aroma-less, a bit malty. The beer starts nicely smooth, caramel, nice bitter hops, rye, probably the floral notes from the oats as well. The mainpart is quite intense, sweet-caramel, the hops become more bitter till the end, brown sugar, slightly roasted (or just the rye). --> interesting!! 10/10/9/10
