MichaelAwesome (4314) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2014
Ein dunkler, recht milder Bock mit ordentlich Malz und Nüssen. Recht simpel zu trinken, recht leicht, nur im Abgang leicht muffig. Nicht schlecht.

McTapps (4314) - Ruhrcity, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2014
Bottle from trade with beerhunter111 - many thanks! The beer pours out in a deep dark brown colour with low head and medium to smooth body. Aroma of rum raisins and malt. Taste of raisins, malt, honey, rum, mild hops, woods and apples. Very nice to drink, expected it worse and not that quaffable.

stevoj (2230) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 2, 2013
Bland and uninteresting, light aroma and taste of roast grains. Taste is rather weak also. Pours dark brown with spare beige head. Palate is lingering bitterness of roast grains/coffee.

Koelschtrinker (10831) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 18, 2011
Malziger, schnell dunkler werdender Antrunk. Das Malz beinhaltet darin eine trockene, wenig intensive Alkoholnuance, die mit der Zeit nachlässt und zum Ende kaum eine Rolle spielt. Zudem weist das Malz ab dem Mittelteil eine leichte Kräuternote auf, auch diese wird zum Ende geringer, so wie auch das Malz. Noch innerhalb des Malzes kommt im Abgang eine leichte Säuerlichkeit auf, zudem eine süßliche Würzigkeit, die aber nicht übermäßig intensiv ist. Netter, recht süffiger Bock, der für 6,5% mild daherkommt. 11/9/8/8/7/8

Bierkrug (2133) - - NOV 11, 2010
330 ml bottle in Germany. As others have said this is a surprise from this berwery for sure. I am not a fan of Karlsberg at all but this was very nice. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Flavor is sweet, carmel/malt, with a great flavor. Palate is also very nice. Probably the best beer by Karlsberg. Kirner did exactly the same with thier Bock as well.
