2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Umber color, that when held to the light reveals a near purple hue. Moderate tan head. Grain and dough, along with light caramel and sorghum. Seems a bit raw and nearly worty. Sweet dark caramel and chocolate flavors. Toasted dark grain bread. Certainly "meaty", but not a clean bock.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer has a nice sustained and light brown foam. The strong scent of caramel from the hard-roasted malt. In the flavoring mixes are also a little fruit, as best I can recognize as orange. Furthermore, a light touch of hop. Taste is first marked by sweet caramel malt, then it becomes slightly fruity in flavor before it all ends in a very light taste of dark chocolate and a pleasant light hop bitterness persistent and very tasteful. Although the terms of taste is very far from other bock beer styles it nevertheless has a great richness that makes it very suitable to enjoy to food or simply as an aperitif.

4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
The beer is beautiful. The foam is creamy and almond colored. The beer itself has a dark brown color, like cola. The beer is quite clear. There is a slight reddish hint, I would call the color ruby red. The smell is nice. There is a malty smell and some bitterness. I smell some licorice. The taste also has this licorice: there is also a roasted barley taste, really nice. A great beer.
