2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottled. A dark golden beer with a yellowish head. The aroma has notes of dusty hops, over ripe fruits, and yeast. The flavor is sweet with notes of bread, yeast, malt, over ripe fruits, and metal, leading to a dry finish. Not impressed.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Enjoyed from bottle at Blind Robin in Chicago, IL. Appearance is a cloudy gold with not much head. Aroma mostly malty with a light citrus hop presence. Taste is a brisk malt, bitter from hops, not bad, for Sierra Nevada and the style its good.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Short, almost no head. Pale golden color. Fruity aroma. The taste lacks malt for a bock. Much bitterness for a bock that lasts a long time. Mellow for a bock beer.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled 350ml. Clear pale golden with a white head. A huge amount of boletus showing up in the nose. Caramel throughout. Sweet. Earthy hops. Very metallic. Surprisingly alcoholic for a 6.4 ABV beer. Not at all my kind of heller bock.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A hazed orange amber bock with a thin lacing white head. In aroma, sweet caramel malt with grassy hops, lightly piney, not bad. In mouth, a smooth caramel malt with nice grassy German hops, lingering bitterness, a bit thin, but overall, quite decent.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Into the glass pours a strong golden Bock with a fine, flat head. Strongly smell of sweet hops, grainy-malty aroma with slightly alcoholic nuances. Starts strong malty and grainy, slightly hoppy-sweet and very spicy. The middle part has a very slightly alcoholic note, paired with sweet grains and hops. Goes to a very grainy and hoppy-sweet finish!
