yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 18, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 5, 2007 Bottle. Off-white head and brown beer. Aroma is sweet and malty with a little alcohol. Taste of malt, caramel and alcohol, but sweet malt dominates. Even the aftertaste is mostly sweet. (050918)

Ungstrup (29847) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - SEP 1, 2005
A hazy brown beer with a thin lazing brown head. The aroma is light, but sweet malty, and the flavor is pretty one-dimensional sweet malty, only with hints of caramel.

joergen (21507) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 17, 2005

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - APR 24, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Brown beer, not much head. Very malty and smoked flavours coming closed to being almost burned. Lots of sweetnes and a rather discreet bitterness. Tasty. Another exceptional Norwegian Bock of high quality. 270804

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - NOV 20, 2004
(on bottle)has a wonderfull aroma, loads of rotten fruits, dark malts and barley of the field. And the first few sips are OK, but sweet. This sweetness turns into a sticky, almost stomack-turning yuckiness, coulden´t finish the bottle. Not impressed Tromsø, and I even lived up there for two years, nothing to brag about for this one.

omhper (19953) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 10, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2004 Bottled. Dark brown. Aroma of malt and plums. Roasty and lightly vinous. Fairly light bodied, but with a lot of malt flavour. Dryish, yet with notes of honey and coffee. Not much bitterness. Flavourful and interesting. By far the best Mack beer I’ve had.

austinpowers (2826) - New York, New York, USA - AUG 25, 2003
This was a real beer bummer, coming on the heels of the terrific Borg Bokkol (bock). In contrast, the Mack bock is merely copper colored (not all that dark for a bock) and lacked the sweetness or malty thickness I look for. In short, skip this one.
