3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Clear brown pour, off-white head. Aroma is fruiter than I would expect from a bock. Malt sweetness as expected, but also a hint of something sour. Flavor is quite nice. Begins pretty bitter and very roasty, this soon transitions into a sweet caramel finish. Medium bodied, smooth. Good brew.

Has a nice full mouthfeel. Nice sweet and hoppy start. Very smooth overall, but has a bit of an alcohol taste that lingers on the tongue too long.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 50 cl. Pours clear amber in color with an off-white head. Lots of nutty notes in aroma, hints of dark breadyness and sweet liqour as well. Nutty and hints of dark bready malts in flavor. Seems like a good tasting brew. A bit on the sweeter side but otherwise I like the nuttyness that is present here

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Alla spina. Limpido color rubino scuro con sottile velo di schiuma beige. Aroma debole, maltato e caramellato con sentori di nocciole; gusto dolciastro con note di malto, frutta secca, luppolo ed un finale amarognolo, appiccicoso e velatamente metallico. Corpo medio-lieve, effervescenza nella norma, struttura un po’ acquosa. Nulla di speciale.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle. Light amber, small to average and mostly diminishing head. Moderate malty and sweetish aroma, some caramel with light bread and faint roasted malt. Medium to full, malty and sweetish flavor, some caramel and light bread with light dark fruits. Finish is average, malty and lightly sweetish - sweetish, light caramel and faint roasted malt, faint hoppyness and light alcohol. Sweetish bock with some caramel and faint roastiness - too much alcohol in the finish.
