Strong lager; lagered for 9 months then filtered and force-carbonated.
"Full-bodied with a creamy flavour and noble hop flavours.
Urbock 23° has on occasion been called the 'Cognac of beers'."

Malt and caramel aroma. Clear amber with small head that disappeared quickly despite high carbonation. Complex malt flavor, warming alcohol, sweet caramel taste. No hops. Finishes sweet.

Erzengel (1912) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - DEC 28, 2013
Das Bier ist für meinen Geschmack total süßlich-alkoholisch. Der Geschmack erinnert im Mund irgendwie an gesalzenes Popcorn. Es hat eine stark alkoholisch-vergorene Note, wie vergorener Fruchtwein mit CO². Im Nachgeschmack ist eine ganz leichte Herbe wahrnehmbar
--> nicht so mein Ding!
Test vom 19.3.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,4,5,3,12,4 - 5,20

erickok (3173) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - DEC 22, 2013
Cloudy orange brown body and tiny head. Moderate aroma, grainy, light spiced, woody and not terribly complex. But the taste is much better, concentrated, warming alcohol, light spice, butterscotch, dried fruit, dry. Certainly got a bitterness, not a thick sweet Belgian style, but clean, lager-like with qualities. A warming body and I enjoy sipping this totally different from a modern style ale. (3cl bottle from B&V Tours)

Thanks BalkanMac. .33l. Rich orange, clear. Strong euro strong lager nose, big alcohol body, orange cola. Dry bittering finish. Strong alc obviously. Clean, more refined than most, but still over the top.

jmgreenuk (3565) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2013
Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Aged since 2008. Poured a clear medium amber with a thin white head. The aroma is caramel malt biscuit and dough. The flavour is medium bitter with an oily syrup honey palate. Medium to full bodied with flat carbonation and an oily mouthfeel. A superb rich, flavourful beer which has aged rather well I feel.

kermis (4285) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - DEC 1, 2013
2008 vintage bottle shared thanks to Deanso. Pours hazy dark golden with a ring tan head. Aroma of caramel, ripe fruits, malt, booze and figs. Flavour is heavy sweet and light moderate bitter. Medium bodied with flat carbonation.

33cl bottle from my cellar 2008. thin white head. Slightly hazy golden pour. Still pretty sweet after 5 years. Very nice brew.

Fashawn (47) - Montesarchio, ITALY - NOV 29, 2013
Birra dolce, essenzialmente dolce, forse stucchevole a voler provare a berne più di una, con un bel bouquet floreale e un sapore di banana, albicocca e lievemente di alcool. Sicuramente, però, una birra buona e godibile.

Cristobal37 (230) - Canyon Lake, California, USA - NOV 18, 2013
Really not impressed with this one. Tart and extremely carbonated. I had it after a Dunkel Doppelbock and perhaps that was why it was such a let down. What I can say is that for having such a high alcohol content it hides it well. Sugary at times but not my kind of bock beer at all.

Riecht nach Karamell und schmeckt auch ein bisschen so. Der Geruch geht in Richtung schales Bier - Lichtgeschmack?
