Bif (1580) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 26, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a dark copper color with adecent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of caramel, malt and spice. Taste of caramel, malt and a nice touch o f spice. Mild bitterness and the finish has a bit of lingering sweetness. Moderate body, smooth with a holiday feel. Nothing fancy, just a nice seasonal beer.

"probably an average bock, maybe a touch better, but i like the style, so there you go. aroma and palate seem light at first but it’s quite flavorful. sweet tofee toasted malt and grassy hops in the finish for balance. nice and easy drinking."

Scrapersnbeer (1492) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 16, 2014
Aroma of light cereal and toasted white bread, very faint caramel. Average yellow-orange color, still as water. Stoney mineral in the flavor with semi-sweet bready malt. Medium body with a cloying finish. Very average bock beer.

Couldn’t find anything special about this beer. It’s a middle of the road Bock. The aroma and the taste made me believe that this beer was just a little off. It was not as dark as I’m used to from a bock and had a giant head that took forever to go down. It might have went bad sitting on the shelf. There wasn’t really any of the spices pr flavors that I associate with most Christmas beers in the states. But that may just be because it’s not a beer brewed in the states.

Bottle. Decent bock. Lightish hop finish peeking out from the malt was a little surprising but maybe that’s due to being bottled? Nice blend of subtle flavors with no dominant one - nuts, chocolate, floral, spices - although I didn’t get much fruit, so again I’m thinking I need to try on tap, or in Bamberg.

Solid beer. Pours dark amber with a thin head. The aroma is caramel and bread. The flavor is the same with a bit of hops to balance nicely. On tap at Schmidts in Philly. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: DEC 29, 2014 Finally got to try this one again (on tap) after my original botched bottle. Aroma: Caramel glazed bread with some spicy hop character. Appearance: Pale gold, mostly still pour with a foamy white head that settled into an ever present skin. Flavor: Bready up front like the nose, but really amps up the spicy hops toward the lingering, slightly bitter finish. Palate: Medium body, sticky texture, flat carbonation, bitter finish. Overall: Happy to have tried this one again; a well made beer in the style.

Aroma: Pumpernickel, sugar cookie, very malty with a touch of ointment. Appearance: Nearly still light copper with a film of bone head. Flavor: Woah. Meat fest. Sulfuric and borderline caustic. Has moments of pleasure, but those are fleeting. Palate: Medium body, creamy texture, flat carbonation, long, bitter finish. Overall: Very unpleasant.
