COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Der Erlanger Urbock ist ein kräftiges, geschmacklich fein abgerundetes Starkbier und mit seinem Stammwürzegehalt von über 18% ein Doppelbock. Der neue Jahrgang wird nach der Bergkirchweih zu Pfingsten eingebraut und lagert in unseren kühlen Gewölbekellern besonders lange bis zu seiner vollkommenen Reife. Im Oktober eines jeden Jahres wird der neue Urbock vorgestellt und dient in der Winterzeit als kräftige Labsal gegen die Unbillen der Witterung und als Trinkgenuß zu den Festtagsspeisen.

50 cl bottle, BBE 05.10.2012
Stale aroma has mashed peas. Flavour is really bready with lots of malt. Also some peas and glue. A bit weird and not your typical DP.

olio (8470) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 5, 2011
50 cl bottle. Thanks Timo A.
Pours clear rosehip red colour with minimal head. Aroma of sweetish caramel malts, grain, grass, nettle and some herbs. Flavour of very stuffy and rich bready malts, caramel, flour, mild toffee and earth notes. Very rich in flavour, simply put, liquid bread.

kappldav123 (5711) - GERMANY - OCT 3, 2011
Bottle looks really, really good. Beer in the glass brownish, no head, quite oily. Starts very complex and spicy, sweet, oily. Much too unbalanced. Modest dry, not very drinkable. No, I dont like this beer.

Maria (10190) - Thisted, DENMARK - AUG 28, 2011
The color is dark red amber and the head is creamy, white and lasting. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, nuts, cocoa, fruit and caramel – it’s slightly vinous. The sweet flavour has the same notes as the aroma, and it’s well-balanced and nice, and the finish is slightly dry.

Koelschtrinker (14596) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 12, 2011
Süßer, aber auch herb angehauchter Malzantrunk. Später setzt eine trockene Hopfennote ein, verschwindet aber schnell wieder im Hintergrund. Im weiteren Verlauf wird das Bier wässriger, was die Süße weitesteghend übertönt. Erst im Abgang fängt sich das Bier wieder und gleitet sanft karamellig aus. Test vom 28.6.2009, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,11,11,11,11 - 10,65

jfb (5036) - Freising, GERMANY - JUN 23, 2010
(bottle) pours a clear ruby-orange colour with a frothy dark beige head. aroma of dark fruits and peaches, with some prominent bready notes, herbs and roasted malts, a tad musty though. flavour is the same, with lots of grainy toasted malts and a touch of alcohol, rather abrasive. strong-bodied with average carbonation.

Quack-Duck (9060) - Down South, GERMANY - JUL 4, 2009
bottle, mit Dank nach Bochum! Dark amber-brown colour, small head. Malty nose. Full-bodied, herbal malty flavours dominate with hints of raisins and prunes. Lingering finish with a warming touch of alcohol.

Clear, amber body. Strange aroma of fruit. Quite hoppy bitter flavour, bit soapy.
