Shaney (2425) - Köln / Cologne, GERMANY - NOV 21, 2012
#429 Bernsteinfarben und mit feiner "Crema" schauts Schwelmer aus. Gefälliger malzaromatischer Duft macht sich breit. Im Antrunk dann voller Saft und Kraft! Das Malz dominiert, ohne zu süß rüberzukommen. Im Abgang eine anziehende Hopfenherbe. Sicherlich nicht sehr vielschichtig, aber in sich absolut stimmig. Die tolle Bügelflasche mit lustigem Label rundet wiederum ein überzeugendes Schwelmer Bier ab! Test vom 29.10.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,10,10,13,10 - 10,35

kiwianer (3428) - Otorohanga, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 29, 2012
Etwas herb, ein bisschen bitter, seltsames Malz, süßlich mit Alkoholgeschmack. Ich finde es interessant, nicht besonders gut nicht besonders schlecht. Fazit: Trinkbar. Test vom 6.12.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,10,9,9,11,9 - 9,35

Kristall-König (2451) - Oldenburg, GERMANY - SEP 8, 2011
Geruch malzig-karamellig mit röstigen Spuren. Anfangs süßlicher Verlauf bis in die Mitte hinein. Dann einsetzende Bitterkeit untermalt mit malzigen Honignoten. Kaum alkoholisch spürbar. Gut gemachtes Bockbier.Test vom 22.5.2008, Gebinde: Glasflasche

MartinT (8492) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 10, 2011
My Bottom Line :
Confident honeyed malts benefit from mild toastiness to diversify this otherwise straightforward Heller Bock.

Further Personal Perceptions :
-A veil of foam quickly disappears into the transparent dark golden with amber hues.
-This is nearly an all-malt affair. A nondescript hop bitterness appears in the end, but hops are few and far between before that.
-The mouthfeel is silky, with soft effervescence and rotund residual sugars.
-Hints of alcohol flavor aren’t too interesting to me at this gravity.
-There was nothing wrong with this Heller Bock per say, but it was too linear for me.

Bottle. Thx Günther!

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 11, 2011
0.5 l bottle, thanks Timo A! Amber color. Sweet, toffeish, honeyish and bready aroma. Sweet flavor with toffee, honey, bread and soft warming alcohol. Tastes slightly papery and stale. Low bitterness.

Koelschtrinker (12439) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 7, 2011
Milder Antrunk, in dem sanfte Bockaromen erst später vorhanden sind, dort aber zunehmend wpürzig und passend dunkelgetreidig. Süffig, ausgewogen, im vorderen Teil aber einfach zu mild. Minimal herb. Das Bier würde durch süße Noten aromatischer werden. Dennoch gelungen. /7/9/11/12/11

Bottle from Erzengel thanks Gabriel. Lovely toffee aroma. Good toffee in mouth with a touch of black pepper on the finish. One of the best full flavour bocks I have had.

kjc51478 (441) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2010
500ml Bottle. Pours a nice amber color with medium head. Aroma is floral and fruity with a slight note of alcohol. Taste is also mainly of dried fruit with some caramel and alcohol notes. The body is medium to full and is quite dry on the palate. Finishing is light to medium bitter with a pronounced hop flavoring.
