2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle: Amber coloured, off-white foamy layer; sweet dark-malty, a bit metallic nose; sugary, sweetish-bitter flavour, medium bodied; a tinge of alcohol in the fruity, sweet-bitter finish. A very mediocre brew............

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(Bottle 50 cl) 7,5% ABV in my version. A snow-bock, well, it had to come sooner or later. But it’s certainly far from watery. Dark amber colour. Lovely caramel flavours with a wee metallic edge. In spite of being overly potent with some sweetness this brew is surprisingly light and in no way cloying. Rather wellmade (Doppel)bock. 250802

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light malty aroma with mango and apricot. Full bodied. Malty sweet flavor with loads of tropical fruit (peach, pineapple, apricot and mango) and a touch of roasted malt to match the fruit a bit. Quite nice.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Beautiful dark, clear, copper-amber; little, coloured head, nearly flat. Bready nose, with a lot of earthy overtones, bit of walnut. Bready taste, quite sweet but not cloying. Touch of acidity. Flavour of chestnut purée (mash). Well-bodied, chewy. Slightly slick mouthfeel. Nice, but nowhere surprising typical German. "Good workmanlike performance".
