3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled (thanks omhper!). Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is grassy, herbal and quite bready as well. Flavour is sweet malts, some alcohol as well as mild fruity, peppery and grassy notes. Actually hides the 9 % abv rather well. Rather hoppy nose for a bock.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled, thanks Bov! Cloudy golden, brief head. Fruity nose with with noteworthy alcohol and almondy Belgian style yeastyness. Sweet and grainy with medium body. Slivovic and licorice. Pineapple and white pepper in a heated finish. More boozy than malty, more Belgian ale than bock in the flavour profile.
