PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - DEC 9, 2003
Coppery color, not much head. Some malts and fruits in the aroma. The taste is sweet and malty. Feels slightly sticky, but with not much aftertaste, maybe just a touch of something bitter. Pleasant enough, but nothing great.

argo0 (12291) - Washington DC, USA - DEC 9, 2003
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2005 (draft, sampled 1/12/05) Clear copper body with beige head. Aroma is medium sweet, caramel, nutty, light smoke. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, nutty, some herbal, finish with some rauchbierian smoke. Medium lightly sticky body. Seems closer to a nut brown ale than a bock. (7/3/7/3/14). (bottle, sampled 12/9/03) Crystal clear amber with small off-white head. Aroma is sweet (molasses), caramel, butterscotch, toffee, and some floral. Taste is medium sweet, caramel, some earthy, and noticeable alcohol. Medium watery body. (6/3/5/2/11)

Not crazy about this Bock. Sweet, malty, and spicy flavors. Dry, bitter sweet, and crisp finish.

hopscotch (10118) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - DEC 8, 2003
UPDATED: SEP 21, 2006 Bottle... Sparkling clear, deep golden lager. Quckly dissipating, fizzy, white head. The nose delivers some orange blossom honey, butterscotch and after-shave. The flavor is decently-balanced, but a bit bland and a touch too sweet. Light chocolate and honey notes. Full-bodied with a syrupy mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Lengthy, bitter-sweet finish.

MarkR (68) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Bottle <P> Clear with a strange color that is akin to putting a few drops of brown coloring into a copper brew. Off-white head starts out well, then fades to a small ring around the edge. Overly simple, clean aroma of fresh malt, toasted bread, and caramel. Flavor is sharp, with a clean and fairly thin burst of bready malt, honey, and singed caramel. Small hint of nuttiness. Surprising amount of hoppiness. Not much malt depth. Finish has a slightly burnt note and some vague spiciness. A bit watery in mouthfeel, with a firm dryness on the tail end. Overall, a bit bland and thin for a bock. I expected something heartier from a winter/holiday bier.

heykevin (1281) - Decorah, Iowa, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Sweet and malt in the aroma, pale in color. Fairly hoppy. Not overly thick dryish finish. Nice clean strongish lager, but totally lacking in bock character.

egajdzis (5622) - Pennsburg, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Dark golden color with a bubbly white head and some lace. Spicy banana, clove aroma. Very wheaty, reminds me of a dark hefe, and not what I was expecting from this bock.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Thin dissipating head. Coppery color. Weak flavor with some sweetness, but slightly watery. I am not impressed.

JPDIPSO (5124) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Dull amber color with cream colored smallish head. Rich caramel and light peat aroma - seem to fill the Bamberg style. Rich smooth feel. Dry, very dry malt flavors. Some malt sweetness mid swallow, that evaporates to an herb hops acidic/bitter end (somewhat pepper like). I think I need some german peppernut.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Orange copper hue. Small white head. Sweet almost spicy nose. Weird sweet malts first. Almost syrupy, light to medium bodied, honey, yeast, with a pleasantly hopped up finish. A refreshing bock, a nice winter brew.
