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

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".
