on tap at the brewpub in bamberg, 16.11.14. first customers of the day, nice of them to open half an hour early on a sunday morning. i ordered a small beer (0.3l) since it was so early and it was served in a half litre glass with a gorgeous billowing head. loads of freshly stomped-on red berries in the aroma; i was taken aback with just how grassily bitter this was, some lightly honeyed sweetness to balance it up. really excellent stuff from probably the brewery i had the lowest expectations from for this bock season

Moravius (597) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 28, 2014
UPDATED: OCT 29, 2014 Vom Faß im Klosterbräu, Bamberg. - Tiefes Orangegelb, klar; feinporiger weißer Schaum. - Für einen Bock noch zurückhaltend malzige, wenig süße Nase mit ganz leicht angebrannter Note. - Antrunk breit malzig aber nicht süß. Sahnebonbon, Nuß, Karamel. Durchschnittlich rezent, vollmundig. Im Abgang füllt herb fruchtige Hopfenbittere den Mund. Nicht besonders starker aber lang anhaltender bitterer Nachtrunk. - Ordentlich, nur wenig süßer aber lang und etwas dumpf nachbitternder Heller Bock. Nur die schwache rauchige Note stört etwas.

harrisoni (14106) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - JAN 27, 2014
On tap at the brewery in Bamberg. Clear deep gold lasting white head. Easy drinking bock. Very heller. Some honey alcohol and hop. Decent. Yep a tasty heller bock.

suprchunk (2342) - Crestview, Florida, USA - MAR 31, 2012
Golden pour. Fluffy white head that starts dissipating quickly. Little bit of lacing left behind. A nice malty aroma with some hints of alcohol. A little bread. Sweet and dry taste of malt. Finishes with a little fruitiness. A little too much alcohol presence but masked, almost, by the malt sweetness.

Ernest (6343) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 25, 2011
Rated at Klosterbrau Nov 2011. Head is mostly diminishing. Body is dark yellow. Aroma is moderately malty (toasted grain, husks), lightly to moderately hoppy (herbs), with notes of alcohol and passionfruit. Flavor is moderately to heavily sweet, lightly to moderately bitter. Finish is lightly to moderately sweet, moderately bitter, slightly husky. Medium to full body, watery texture, lively carbonation, moderately alcoholic. A passable rendition but rough and forgettable.

Braudog (5894) - Traveling the USA, Missouri, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Draft at the brewpub. My favorite at my favorite stop in Bamberg. Golden, bright and clear with a sudsy white head. Mellow sugary edge with just a hint of alcohol. Deceptively easy to drink. (#4384, 12/2/2011)

Bottle. Golden clear. Few cereal aromas. Dry faint flavour of malts. Not very interresting beer. Prefer their other beers from this brewery.
