yespr (30713) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - DEC 19, 2010
12 fl oz bottle. Pours hazy brown with a small off-white head. Aroma is prunes fruity, malty and slight yeasty. Vague metallic flavoured. Sweet prunes, plum and raisins - yet not overly sweet. Light yeasty and phenolic. Ends medium dry and persisting fruity. Surprisingly far from classic German Doppelbocks - but nice.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2005 [Butt Head Bock] The aroma is very sweet with notes of alcohol and hints of alcohol. The color is brown and it has a small diappearing brown head. The flavor is sweet and rather hoppy with notes of roasted malt and alcohol running over the tongue, which warms. The mouthfeel ís smooth. [Tommyknocker Bockfest] Vintage 1996 sampled 2004. The Bockfest is a retired seasonal made by adding Rum and Allspice to the Butt Head Bock, but otherwise the specs are the same. A hazy red beer with a disappearing head. The aroma is of spices, where cinnamon stands out. The flavor is dusty combined with notes of oranges and spices - it definately tastes a little old. The body is a little thin - amazing of such a strong beer - even though it is 8 years old. [7/4/5/2/12]

Hazy red brown beer. Soft but rich - full of tangy malt with just a little hop in the finish. Very tasty and easy to drink.
