Pours a dark brown body, with a big tan head. Aroma: Mostly malty. Taste: I can taste toffee and caramel which give it a sweet taste. It’s also malty. And it has a roasty medium finish, not too long....

3.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a dark brown, with an impressive offwhite head.
Smells of bready yeast and malt, with actually a lot of metallic scent (oxidation, I’m guessing).
Tastes a mild sweetness, with an even milder bitter follow. Some dried red fruit, with a hint of brown sugar and some spice. Plenty of metal in the taste too, but it only popped up after my first impressions -- this bottle was very likely unintentionally aged for way too long before I even got it.
Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Texture is pretty creamy.
I’ll have to find a newer example for next time: this one hints at something that could be quite impressive.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark clear ruby brown with a thick creamy tan head that diminishes quickly leaving a good lace. Typical plummy bock aromas of munich malts, sundried raisins and plum jam. Full bodied, well balanced, all on the munich malts and finishing on a chocolate note. Nice bock.
