Glowing thick dark brown. leather prune smells. Big teriyaki, soy sauce thick syrup taste. A light sweet roasted taste in there as well. Lots of flavor to explore in this one.

HonusWagner (1315) - Florida, USA - MAY 23, 2014
Advertised as a Triple Bock at RnH, 2010. Sweet chocolatey, a touch boozy, has a nice fruitiness in the midpalate that melds nicely with the chocolate bitterness. Very nice.

gEUS (982) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAY 22, 2014
750 ml bottle - pours deep brown, with a small soapy off-white yellowish head. Immediately an aroma of rhum soaked raisins and salted caramel. Medium body, high on the sour side, alcohol sting as from the middle darkly roasted and slightly smoked towards the end. Peat aromas and light toffee taste. and alcohol burn - pity

Pour from bottle - milk chocolate brown with creamy tall head Aroma - Very fruity aroma. Raisins, figs, dates, dark cherries, raspberry. Also loads of chocolate, brown bread, and faint whiff of booze. Taste - chocolate covered cherries, raisins, bubblegum, roasted malt, citrus hops, touch of lemon juice. Palate - oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation, syrupy heavy body, sweet aftertaste that is pretty brief. Very delicious, but pretty sweet and heavy. Definitely share a bottle with a friend.

daje (2033) - NORWAY - APR 7, 2014
Bottle, shared with edvard january 25th 2014. Dark brown body, big beige head. Aroma of malt, raisin, herbs and alcohol. Taste is spicy, choriander and chamomilla, with raisins, licorice and malt. Slightly alcoholic finish, with a herbal and malty aftertaste. Very heavy without being too sweet.

AR (1000) - Georgia, USA - FEB 22, 2014
Very thick and malty. Long-lasting head. Slight coffee, but predominately chocolate flavor. It’s almost like eating a Snickers bar. This one drinks slowly.

berlinoise2go (604) - NORWAY - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle (75cl). Inch-thick light beige head, good retention, settles as a thick bubbly layer with flame-shaped lacing. Dark brown colour. Complex, sweet malty aroma with raisins/prunes, chocolate, licorice, menthol, wood, ash, vanilla, whisky. Full body, yet somewhat lighter than expected from the ABV. Soft carbonation. Taste is dryer than suggested by the nose, very well balanced with a rich bitter-sweet and woody maltiness. The finish is tongue-dryingly bitter with sweet malt and menthol/cloves.

January 2, 2014. 750mL bottle from LCBO quite some time ago, pulled from our ’cellar’. Lovely caramel and raisin aroma. Opaque. Lovely lacing. Thinner than expected. Would not guess this is 11%, masks the alcohol quite well. Bit of lingering bitterness on the end. Wish we could get more Mikkeller in Ontario.

shared 75cl bottle. doesn’t appear like a bock beer. dark brown with a nutty brown head. sweet sugar, dark fruits, raisins, malts, plums, chocolate. the alcohol in this beer is incredibly well hidden

jdb288 (472) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 29, 2013
Bottle. Pours creamy brown with tall tan head. Aroma is caramel, molasses. Taste incorporates those flavors with bread, cocoa. Thin and oily. Not as heavy as expected which was a nice surprise. Alcohol hidden well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
