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.

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.

Bottle 50 cl. Courtesy of adnielsen. Pours a clear golden with a white head. Sweet malty nose - perhaps a tad oxidized. Solid malty body, sweet malty goodness with only a discreet hoppiness. Nice and solid - if unsophisticated. But a good one. 250313
