3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle from trade. Pours dark amber, smells bread-like, with a bit of pepper and rye. Nice flavor, the rye comes out a plays well with the malt and a bit of balancing hops. For a bock, it’s quite drinkable, even though it’s a bit on the thick tasting side. Cool beer, I’d drink it again.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Color is a very light ruby/brown. Pours a slightly tan head that doesn’t last to long. Not very much lacing observed.
The aroma is of solid malts. You can definately tell that it is a rye beer from the smell. There is also a hint of dark chocolate and licorice lingering around.
The taste is mainly malts. Carmel is present as well as some spices. Dark chocolate is also present.
Mouthfeel is very creamy. The beer is cold, but it’s as if it warms your mouth, very interesting.
Overall, this was an interesting beer and one I am glad I got to try. I haven’t tasted anything like this and I would recommend it.
Serving type: bottle

Bottle. Pours amber-brown with a thin white head. Smells mostly of caramel with hints of spice and malt. Lacing dissipates quickly while drinking. Taste initially of caramel but quickly becomes an explosion of various malts. Very decent aftertaste (not too bitter). Enjoyable beer...and warming!
