magdalar (516) - Zurich, - JUN 11, 2012
12oz bottle. Pours a dark brown with an offwhite head. Smells of dark red berries, caramel, and malt. Tastes of a heavy sweetness, medium bitterness and a warming alcohol. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, oily texture. Finishes mildly fruity and with a mild alcoholic burn.

SlackerMads (1783) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 26, 2015
Bottle, 2011 version. Pours dark brown with a small beige head. Malty nose with lots of toffee. Flavour has toffee, cocoa, dark dried fruit, light vanilla, Full body, soft carbonation. Not as sweet as I expected, it has some acidity that helps lift the sugar along with the alcohol, which is warming and not rough. Fine malty beverage but not enough to justify the price tag.

tectactoe (2510) - Michigan, USA - JAN 21, 2015
Tap @ Kuhnhenn: Extremely deep brown body with light shining through the very edges, giving off ruby highlights. Soapy & foamy, large bubbled beige-gray head. Aroma is full of huge, thick, robust toffee & caramel candy. Sugary, sticky, sweet. Black licorice, toasted bread, burnt brown sugar, plum, molasses coated raisins, & a good amount of boozy warmth. Huge flavor. Even as you’d expect for a 12.5% ABV bock, the flavor is even louder. Booze laced between mountains of caramel, toffee, & roasted nuts, covered in sticky sweet residual malt sugars. Plums & sweet dates, coated in molasses & rolled in brown sugar, leading to a finish of harshly toasted & nearly burnt bread, nuts, & dominant yeast esters. Roasted nuts, caramel, & scorched brown sugar linger on the palate afterwards. Sticky, heavy, creamy mouth feel. This is everything you’d expect a "triple" bock to be. Sam Adams LISTEN UP. This is a really good beer.

slowrunner77 (6161) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 25, 2014
"A world different from the horrid Sam Adams TB. Very sugary sweet, and fairly alcoholic, but made for a pretty nice sipper. Honey, sweet malts, fudge up front and center."

ej (821) - Hauglandshella, NORWAY - SEP 24, 2014
Bottle 2011. Pours a thick and hazy looking dark coppery brownish, producing a small short lived head. Vinous aroma with toasted bread, lightly roasted malts, dates and raisins. Taste is quite similar; vinous notes with a light roastyness, dried fruits and a whiff of alcohol. Very softly carbonated but pretty slick and full bodied. Feels like a mix of mead and doppelbock really.

wyzzywyz22 (2037) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - JUN 7, 2014
Bottle, Domus Birrae, Roma. Shared with Slothez, Superbowl session. Poured a deep dark reddy brown with a small fading beige head. Beak had notes of dark bread, malts, brown sugar booze and dark fruits. Taste was sweet malts, dark fruits and booze. Thinnish mouthfeel with limited carbonation. Pretty forgettable overall and the inflated price made it all the more disappointing. Expected more.

ClubGonzo (4281) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 23, 2014
Tap sample at CBC 2014. Dark clear red-hued amber body, medium creamy off-white head, looking great. Nose is sweet deep caramel tones, vanilla, honey, mild burnt sugar notes and hints of muscovado sugar and red berries. Taste is sweet berry-like caramel tones, vanilla, burnt sugar and hints of honey and melon. Full body, medium carbonation. Quite sweet, but for a sweet (beer) tooth like me this is aaall right. :-)
