rauchbierlover (580) - Berlin, Berlin, GERMANY - JAN 14, 2012
Amber/reddish body. Aroma of yeast, caramel. Taste is sweet (toffee, caramel again, red fruits) but ends somehow a hoppy and dry. Not bad

8/12/2011 33cl bottle @ Backdoor, Gent - BB: 12/11 (2011-697)

Very dark brown beer, small light beige head, unstable, not adhesive, dissipates completely. Aroma: very dark caramel, some mocha, sweet brown sugar, coffee, cocoa powder. MF: light carbon, full body. Taste: full complex flavour, dried fruits, chocolate, little sweet, caramel. Aftertaste: some hop bitterness, little sour, caramel, mocha and cocoa powder. Maybe it’s the age, but this is one mighty fine bock!

erickok (3196) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - MAY 30, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 12, 2011 Much darker than the average autumn bock - German or Belgian. Distinct (milk) chocolate notes, roasty, pecan, pine and a leaves. Even some cherry when warmed up. Interesting taste as well that is herby and spicy without being very sweet - or dry for that matter. Slightly too watery. Aftertaste isn’t a classic bock-like short sweetness either. Well carbonated. Another fine beer from this brewer although not as good as the others. (33cl bottle) Update: stil impressed with it this time around; upped the ratings for that achievement. Also, palate didn’t seem that watery.

Abio (1519) - Waasland, BELGIUM - MAY 12, 2011
Brown coloured, a beige head that should be bigger and hold better. Caramel, dark fruits, sweet, light hopped, malts and bread, decent spiced. Light roasted at both the smell and taste. Not bad.
