3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle 33cl. @ home. Aroma roasted malts, fruitsyrup, caramel, brown sugar, yeasty, licorice; opaque red brown color, good one finger foamy tan head, recedes slowly, good lacing; at first moderate sweet, slightly bitter, than roasty bittersweet, some coffee; creamy mouthfeel, full body, alcohol; develops more bitterness in aftertaste, dark chocolate notes and a bit peppery. Not completely balanced, but a nice bock anyway.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
The aroma is a malt cannonball with some subtle hints of liquorice and nuts. Dark amber color with a significant tan foam. Heavy cloying sweetness, full-bodied, average carbonation.
If you like malt it’s the beer for you because it’s like a kind of malt extract ready to drink. Too high FG for my tastes. I like most the Celebrator by Ayinger that is more balanced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at home. The beer has a deep reddish brown color and is unclear. The foam is soapy, large and with a beige color. The aroma has an expected malty character with touches of dried fruit, leather, rye bread. nuts, slightly burnt malt, but also Belgian yeast, banana, some spices and hops. The leather are more evident in the flavor where cocoa, nuts and roasted malt dominates. Mouth feel is smooth, and the bitterness of this beer is at a medium level. The overall impression I’m left with is that this is a solid bock with a malty and balanced expression. The flavor is a little cautious though.
