Don’t expect to be drinking a bock because you’ll be disappointed. If you judge it on it’s own and not to its style it’s quite a nice beer. Port and prune aroma. Amber/orange color, off-white head, good lace. Full, hoppy, orange flavor, bitter, alcohol, sweet. Long lasting little burning finish.

Very nice beer for a little bit more demanding taste. A bit alcoholic taste, light body and thin texture. Best with strong cheeses with high in proteins. This is a special beer which needs special athmosphere to have it. This is a beer that tastes itself, not bananas. Nice hops with nice taste of herbs, sage... Not everyday and not everybody. Somehow this beer feels more like a vine, not beer.

Dark copper colour, frothy off-white head, a very nice presentation. My first stab at a Heller Bock, this one might not be representative for the style though? I thought this was a great beer, aroma was fruity and hoppy and some malts. Great bitterness in the taste coupled with a bit a sweetness, very good!

Aroma has hay and berries and fruits. Fresh good aroma. Clear strawberry red, dense white head medium long. Taste is quite lagerish and long, berries in background, soft and slick, low carbonation, mild taste, just bit bitterness. Taste is surprisingly lagerish and bit dull, other parts are better.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bernsteinfarbener Bock mit cremigem, feinporigem Schaum, gut. Ein nur verhalten braumalziges Aroma. Im Antrunk für 8% sensationell frischer und süffiger Bock. Der Geschmack ist nur leicht malzig und findet erst im laaangem Abgang statt, denn der ist kräftig, kernig, sehr würzig und schön hopfig-herb-nachbitternd. Dieser Bock polarisiert; mir gefällt er!

50 cl. bottle. It pours an amber colour, with a rich creamy head that lasts a good while. Aroma is malty, with caramel and fruits, prunes.
Some brandy flavor but there’s a metalic tone that I don’t like much.
Taste is fruity, sweet, cherries and caramel.
