3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
0.75l bottle @ Tolkienís House, Zagreb
Cute bottle, cute glass (a bit pointless, but cute). Poured an absolutely enormous beige head that took forever to go away, and tasted extremely bitter (odd, considering that the taste itself isnít bitter at all). Hm. It looks impressive, thatís for sure. Murky deep amber-orange colour. Obviously bottle conditioned, as tons of yeast chunks appeared later on. A fruity, slightly stale (in a positive way) nose, with hints of tea and some spices. The taste was, well, quite sweet, fruity, just a tad of acidity an grassiness in the taste, maybe a bit dry and subdued under the malty/sugary sweetness that formed even the aftertaste at first. This has Belgian written all over it, and itís a bit above average for the style. A nice beer.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Corked and caged bottle. Appearance was a huge tan fizzy, frothy head that was mostly lasting, a good amount of lacing, visible carbonation, and a reddish brown hue. Malty, caramel, chocolate, sweet and spicy nose. Very nice. Flavor was sweet, malty, caramel, and somewhat thin. Mouthfeel was tingly and thin. Medium body.

750 ml bottle from BevMo La Jolla. Pours a gorgeous dark red-amber with a large and creamy beige head that lingers well. Aroma is sweet and sour, with tart fruits, cranberry, yeast and a little must. Tart cherry and cranberry juice in the flavor, yeasty bread adn a bit of earth, quite complex Smooth mouthfel, medium body and creamy carbonation. Iím a little surprised at the generally low ratings, I found this one to be quite enjoyable overall.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. Hazy, dark orange beer with a bubbly, diminishing, beige head. Nice carbonation. A bit one-dimentional aroma, with mostly fresh and dried fruits, along with some alcohol and cellar. The flavor has alcohol, cellar, dried fruits and candi-sugar. Fizzy, medium to thin body. Not my kind of bock. (060604)

Had one 1 year past the max. date. <!-- BR -->
Dark amber coloured brew. Aroma is sweet and malty. Doesnít taste as a bock, more as an avarage belgian ale. Sweet fruity taste, a bit malty. Overall enjoyable.
