ComradeK (1052) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - OCT 9, 2014
500ml bottle. Pours a clear deep ruby, with a large light beige head, which lasts well and leaves good lacing. Milk chocolate, nutty notes, mild spice hops and savoury notes make up the aroma. Sweet spice hops up front give way to mild coffee and roasted nuts in the mid-palate. The finish is pleasantly savoury. A very nice bock.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2014 pours unclear very dark brown with a creamy beige head showing good retention and lacing. nutty and fruity maltiness - burnt buts and tons of raisins, figs and dried lightly oxidized dark fruits, well integrated burnt caramel, sweet bread, dough, bit of wort - but worth it, you know; hint of smokiness, woodsy astringent notes, some sweetness - brown and burnt sugars, pepper, grass, clean yeast, minerals. light carbonation, medium body - oily, thick, semi-sweet grassy-peppery and softly astringent-tannic finish. very tasty and good! solid.

mike_77 (3378) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 5, 2014
Clear mahogany brown colour. A sweetish bock packed with dark malts and sweet dried fruits. The alcohol level is just high enough to make the sweetness not overpowering.

Foffern (1294) - Bodø, NORWAY - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a very deep, reddish brown colour with a medium, creamy, beige head. Sweet aroma of raisins, leather, wood, maple syrup, chocolate and roasted malt in the background. The flavour is also sweet with more, chocolate, brown sugar, nuts, cocoa and wood. Has a rich and soft mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A wonderful, balanced and sweet bock.

500 ml bottle. Pours Dark amber brown with a thicker tan head with foamy lacing. Smells of sweet caramel. Well balanced taste. You get some malty caramel, sweetness, dark chocolate, and hop bitterness. Creamy and some bubbles across the palate. Excellent fall beer that’s not as sweet as German Marzens. Will be having many of these this fall. Very reasonably priced.
