Benjii (3049) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 30, 2011
Bottle from Vino. Pours a reddish brown colour with a thin beige head. Very vegetal aroma of fig, cola and cabbage with smoky woody notes. Vegetal flavours also with a warming smoky malt character, cola again and some great grassy hops. Well masked alcohol. Metallic sweet treacle and cherry finish. Really different and recommended!

Schroppfy (2360) - Łódż, Warsaw, Poland; Michigan, Ohio, USA - APR 16, 2011
Well, you have to love these earthen, sweet but oh-so-naturally molasses and brown sugar, leafy, vegetabley maibocks. This is about as perfecto stylistically (or at the very center of my perceived maibock category) as one can get. Caramel, iron, blood and leather and said green matter in the aroma. Awesome chewy caramel flavor with some light-to-moderate bitterness. Light-to-moderate sweetness. Strong earthiness as already stated! Nice retained carbonation over a totally normal and attract deep brown with bone-to-ecru colored head, dense at first and not frothy at all. Very fresh (best before Sept 2011), bottle from Piwoteka.

JorisPPattyn (8034) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUN 5, 2006
Deep dark Coca-Cola brown; yellow-brownish medium head, fast disappearing. Fine, discreet but subtle malts nose, with some flowery, fine herbal aromas and present but discreet malts (dark and lighter, sweetish). Burnt, roasted caramel taste on the verge of bitterness, no doubt kept up by some hops. Sweetness, again caramelly in character. Again some herbal, even earthy notes. Quite nice, good balance. Retronasal pine needles. Medium bodied, creamy texture, some burning sensation. Very good, and by its colouring original Maibock; well spotted, Sebastian!

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2007
A Sim rate (bottle at Quinns): Fresh perfumy aroma of caramel, chocolate and plum. The aroma is so nice that I would even give it an 8 if it wasn’t for the slight metallic tinge. Colour is a gorgeous dark red/brown. Sometimes red/sometimes brown. Taste is sweet and chocolately, but with a slight (again) metallic finish. Overall, it’s a very nice beer!

Tranquillity (1422) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 18, 2007
Bottle at the German beer festival at One Pint, Helsinki. Strong dark malty, sugary aroma. Taste as it smells, raisins. Very good. Dark cola colour.

duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 8, 2007
Bottle@Quinns, London. Slightly smokey aroma, some lightly fishy aromas. Palate is lightly sweet and sticky, with some caramel and a fishy saltyness in the finish, and some light smokey notes. Warming finish. Quite nice i think.
