500ml bottle - shared by Rosenbergh - thanks!
Deep red. Sweet malty aroma. Has some bacon in the body. A bit yeasty in the taste. Not a particularly interesting bock apart from that slight hint of bacon.

2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle looks really good. Beer in the glass also, brownish, nice head. Sharp aroma. Starts really strong and quite alcoholic. Dry-malty. More and more soapy-alcoholic, burning finish. Too unbalanced.
