worldbeertaste (1654) - AUSTRIA - APR 3, 2014
Medium amber with a thin, white, lasting frothy head. Smells of caramel, nut, molasses, soy sauce, clove, and bread. Medium oily body. Tastes of prunes, molasses, cloves and yeast with a bitter slightly harsh finish.

Maakun (657) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 25, 2014
Dark golden with almost no head. Light skunk, sweet malts, spices, bitter alcohol and green vegetables. Medium to full bodied. Meh, way too much alcohol.

Moravius (503) - Berlin, GERMANY - MAR 11, 2014
Flasche. - Goldgelb. - Typisches, wenig komplexes Bockbier mit schwerer Malzsüße und fuseligem Alkohol, aber mit (für ein untergäriges Bier) stark ausgeprägter Fruchtigkeit. Angemessen bitter im Abgang, aber keineswegs der „miraculous milestone of bockbeer-hopping“, den Michael Rudolf hier erkennt - da gibt es weitaus besser gehopfte, auch vielschichtigere Bockbiere. - Ein ordentlicher heller Doppelbock, aber keine Sensation. (Test: Sept. 2013)

exeter (306) - calgary, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 6, 2014
Strong slightly floral and slightly sweet aroma, kind of sticky sweet start, which quickly fades to a dry bitter finish, very warming brew, also a bit of a whiskey like character, lots of body and flavour.

AgentAle (696) - Alberta, CANADA - FEB 24, 2014
Aroma is of caramel,liquorice and raison with some alcohol presence. Taste is a fruity mouth feel with some hints of belgian sugar. Finish has an alcohol bite but not as bad as you’d think. Clear light gold body with a thin pearl head.

bosta (116) - SLOVENIA - FEB 3, 2014
0.33l bottle. A clear orange color with a short-lived white head. Sweet and fruity aroma of cherry, apricot, candid fruit. Taste is similar candid fruit, melon and apricot and a lot of raw alcohol, especially in the aftertaste. Low carbonation and a bit oily mouthfeel. Not really my style of a beer.

Lore (1079) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 25, 2014
surprisingly pale golden colour, minimal white head, which disappears quickly and fully - in the light of the high ABV, it is acceptable; aroma of malts, apple, some peach, maybe hints of raisin as well, grass and alcoholic notes; in contrast with the aroma, the taste is quite one dimensional: malty sweetness and alcohol, and nothing else;this beer has a good potential to be a good beer, just the taste should be as complex as the aroma is.
