2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Clear reddish brown in colour, with a moka quickly dissipating head. Sweet caramel with hints of oxidation, and fruits, like prunes or plums. In mouth, a sweet malt with nutty notes, no hops, a bit harsh in aftertaste. Rather light bodied. Bottle from Piscator, merci Kris!

12oz bottle shared courtesy of weeare138. Poured a deep orange color with a small sized off white head. Aromas of caramel, and has a roastiness to it. Tastes of weaker caramel and nothing else to really note or that really stood out. Thin and watery body. Palate cleanser, next...

Deep copper pour, with medium white head. malty, fruity, slightly floral, spicy, sour aroma. Tastes malty, with a slight tartness at the finsih, coupled with a definite cognacy aftertaste. Slightly light in palate for a bock, but not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark caramel amber colour with a moderate off white head. Aroma is sweetly malty with a touch of caramel. Flavour is sweetly malty with some toffee flavours over mild alcohol notes. Palate and flavour is lighter than the doppelbock which i think is definitely the better of the two. Thanks obisbeer.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a clear dark bronze copper with a large, frothy, thin-lacing tannish head. Aroma of lightly toasty caramel malts and a touch of German hops and lager yeast. Body starts with a mild light sweetness, some bittering noble hops and an authentic bittersweet finish. A decent bock but might be a tad too bitter for the style.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Poured a clear garnet/amber with a medium cap of off-white head. The nose was full of artificial sweetener and caramel... maybe a little toffee and floral, but not much. The flavor was sweet, too.. some caramel, some toffee, but very artificial feeling. Light-bodied and slicker on the palate with a tacky finish. Not very good.

Have had this on tap and from the bottle. Not a bad entry from an otherwise mediocre brewery.
