sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2012
33cl bottle, BB 12/2016. Couleur acajou/cuivrée, col moyen beige. Arôme malt caramel, léger grillé, sucré et fruits noirs sur une légère note chocolatée. Palais est malté sur une légère pointe sucrée, caramel/grillé avec note de chocolat. Fruits noirs; prune avec un beau pétillant et une couche d’amertume en fin de bouche. Le plus de cette bière est que au contraire des Bock allemandes on ne retrouve pas ce profile de faux caramel.

FatPhil (14021) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 20, 2012
330ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Starts a bit bready, but quickly veers in th direction of cake, even heading towards chocolate too and even some vanilla. Some sugary sweet esters, including banana, but alas some alcohol in the mix, but not boozy. A nice deep reddish brown, but a rather brief fizzy tan head. Palate remarkably thin, at least at this temperature - quite cold (6-7C?) - so I’ll take this slowly and let it warm up. Feels full though, but with the crisp carbonation it’s remarkably refreshing. It’s a little messy in the mouth, a touch earthy and dirty, some yeastiness is part of that. Fills out with more fruity esters as it warms, something quite appley or even cidery about it because of the alcohol that’s also there. Not grabbing me, too much alcohol, not enough good old fashioned bock fun.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Bottle thanks to bu11zeye. Pours with a hazed brown body with a small tan head. Aromas are of dark fruits, raisins, grainy, bready, low melanoidins, and some caramel. Mostly malt. Flavors are of cereal, brown sugar, raisins, dark fruit, nutty, melanoidins. Low bitterness with a malt balance. Lively bubbles, medium bodied. A bit too fizzy for me. Decent.

Cloudy dark brown beer. Residual white head. Moderate carbonation. Light milk chocolate malt, mild tangy fruit. Softish semi dry finish. Okay.

Palme (4180) - Bergen, NORWAY - JUN 6, 2012
0.33l bottle @ Braai Tapperij de Mug, Middelsburg. A cloudy deep brown one with a small heavy lacing off-white head. Smells dark malty, sweet, lots of dark dried fruits and some nice chocolate paper. Nice! It’s average to lively carbonated and it has a oily to sticky texture in the mouth. In the flavor I get a nice sweetness from dark malts, chocolate, dark caramel, fruits with a sharp boozy finish and aftertaste. This was a really nice one! 29.05.2012

Cola color with a good head that stays there for long time. Aromas not so intense. Sweet. Taste of caramel, dark sugar and dark fruits. Highly carbonated. A pleasant beer.

ansjelaah (1747) - Westelbeers, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2012
Ruikt naar hout, geiten, zoet, beetje wijnachtig, drop, dronkerbruin maar niet helder, heel licht bruine schuimkleur, te weinig koolzuur.

hawthorne00 (3537) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle, 9C. Dark brown with a fluffy beige head. Aroma of toffee and bread. Taste is sweet with caramel and some dark berries before a dry, slightly spicy finish. Quite carbonated - liked it more after a few swirls. Nice balance but a bit anonymous.
