stevoj (3119) - 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 (14088) - 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 (2130) - - 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.

MoritzF (8926) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - DEC 26, 2006
(33cl bottle, traded with Saarlander) Clear, dark amber colour with a small foamy tanned head. Shy aroma: slightly sweet and dusty toasty malt with caramel. Moderately sweet flavour, medium to full bodied with a smooth carbonation. Strong dark malty taste, toasted with caramel and light fruity notes (dried fruits); medium-dry, malty and minimal-bitter finish.

tjthresh (1867) - Greenfield, Indiana, USA - MAY 8, 2006
Poured into a tankard. Pourd kind of a reddish, brownish, ruby garnet color with a think tan head. Rather bready aroma. Typical imported smell. Dry caramel on the palate. Very little hop character, and very clean fermentation character. Finishes with a bit of roasted bitterness. Easy to drink. Thanks to Saarlander.
