T: Slightly sweet upfront. Strong malty backbone. Strong notes of caramel and honey. Crystal malts and hints of dark fruits. Grassy hops profile. Light hops bitterness. Warming.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The flavors are mainly dominated by coffee and caramel. However, there’s a hoppy side flavour that comes late and could be ’fresher’. The whole is sweetish and light to medium bodied. Too little for a Bock.
Too little to be called a good Bock…

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
50cl swing top bottle. Brownish color with a short but thick beige head. Aroma is very loaded of roasted malts, very nice. Taste is balanced, sweetish in the beginning ending up in a moderate bitterness. Body is medium to full, proper carbonation, malty finish, vaguely dry. A very nice classic dunkler bock.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Reviewed on 19/12/14. Bottle, 500ml. A clear copper beer with a medium size foamy head that fades away after a couple of minutes. Aroma is of chestnuts, wood, caramel, alcohol and malt. Taste is bitter with a robust character and an alcoholic finish. Past expiration date, so it wasn’t optimal.

500ml bottle. Clear copper color. Small size, white head, stays. Caramelly, grainy, sweet aroma. Caramel, sweet malts, mild hops in taste. Faint alcohol in aftertaste, which is bit weird. Soft bitterness.
