Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 25, 2007
330 ml bottle. Copper colour with a medium-sized creamy white head. This was a gusher as foam came rushing out of the bottle, not too fast, but it did. Nutty rich raisiny aroma. Quite sweet. Notes of cakes and almonds. Crisp bitterness at first, but is soon balanced by roasted malts and malt sweetness. The hops dominates this beer. It’s quite nice actually. I expected it too be sweeter.

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JAN 24, 2007
Bottle. Small tan head over clear reddish brown body. Fresh, fairly dry malt aroma. Also some light fruitiness with notes of floral hops. Malt-flavored. Not too sweet, with a pleasant mild hoppy and slight fruity background. Well balanced. Rather light-bodied. Sweetish and spicy finish. A very enjoyable Bock.

Bottle. Brown with reddish glow and good off white head. Malt, malt, malt and a little metal in aroma. Flavour is malt (surprise!), metal and a little bitterness. Soft and average palate.

33 cl bottle. No yeast at the bottom. Reddish brown colour with a weak head. Sweet caramel aroma with notes of malt and hints of sourness. Very tasty flavour of sweet malt, caramel and with a dusty finish. Ends up sweet and alcoholic.

Smells of aromatic hops. More of a bitter finish than most Norwegian bocks - a better beer. Fine flavour from the hops, reminds me of a fine English bitter!

Bottled. Thanks Roger Furseth. Okay, this is not at all a flawless beer but it has character. Just like some breweries, it suffers from bad environment. Dark copper colour it is, the head is big and light brown. Aroma is very buttery, on the edge of being harsh but I enjoy it. Flavour is wonderfully soft malty, there is a gentle touch of roastiness/licorice and also chocolate. A bit on the sweet side perhaps but here it just adds to the flavour. Long finish.

Finn (6180) - Tromsø, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2006
Bottle 0,33l. Clear ruby/brown colour. Creamy head leaving filigrees on the glass. Very pretty! Heavy malty aroma. Some caramellish sweetness. A dry malty finish. Another good norwegian bock.
