Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2012
Bottle 35,5 cl. Pours a beautiful clear orangey brown with a creamy beige head. Lovely walnut aroma with plenty of pumpernickel. Quite full-bodied - definitely appears stronger than 6.25%! - with a solid base of crystal malts, nuts, pumpernickel and brown sugars. Very subdued bitterness. An almost flawless Bock. 100312

oh6gdx (20902) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 7, 2011
Bottled@Bishops Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Quite much deep ruby/black colour with a small beige head that vanishes rather quickly. Aroma is syrupy, sweet malty as well as slightly dark fruity. Flavour is dark fruits, some toffee, mild hops and spices. As it warms up it gets more complex and bodied and the fruityness grows. Sadly warming up also gives the beer some slight metallic notes.

omhper (19930) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2010
Bottled at Bishop’s Arms Vasagatan, Stockholm. Mahogany colour, rich head. Sweet and very caramelly. Medium-full bodied with rounded mouthfeel. Some roastiness, butter and ash,but mostly caramel and spun sugar. Fairly low bitterness in a mildly warming finish. A well rounded, gentle, but not overly complex beer.

fiulijn (15217) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - FEB 28, 2013
Bottle at Bishop’s Arms, Stockholm, Vasagatan
Dark brown color, clean, with some amber-red reflex, and medium sized beige compact head. The aroma is quite American, the yeast produced more fruity esters than a true German Bock; there is also some caramel and light roasted malt. The mouthfeel is lean, dry, partially smooth; roasted malt and dark caramel flavor, with a trace of liquorice.
A good beer, nothing to do with Doppelbocks (lighter, with a bit too much roasted malt, and the liquorice).

Oakes (12788) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 20, 2006
Very dark reddish-brown color. Head so thick and bone-coloured it looks like nitro. Chewy molasses aroma with alcohol and earth. Sweet and strong flavour. Stinging malts - earth and molasses mainly - bring a lot of intensity to the table. Certainly not as rounded as the better European examples but this is not without appeal.
