COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The nose is filled with complex notes of figs, fruitcake, port, licorice, cherry, raisin chocolate, black toffee, coffee and caramel, while it tastes deliciously thick and chewy, with great complexity showing notes of fruits, coffee-roastiness, molasses, licorice, and toffee. This beer is a meal!

Many thanks for this complex Bock beer to Mariusz. Piana srednia, malo trwala, wyglad brazowa barwa, pod swiatlem czerwona niczym bycza krew. W smaku rozpuszczone landrynki, likier owocowy, troche delikatnej kawy i przede wszystkim wisnie w czekoladzie, podbite alkoholowa nuta, niczym Mon Cherry. Zlozone wyraziste, w sam raz na chlodne jesienne wieczory po kolacji

500ml bottle. Pours a clear red-copper with a thin, creamy, short lived, tan head that leaves spotty lacing. Sweet aroma of toasted bready malt, caramel, fig, raisin, date and cherry. Sweet flavour of toasted bready malt, caramel, licorice, raisin, fig, date, plum, molasses, cherry, red wine and dark chocolate in a dry, alcohol warming finish. Medium body with an oily texture and soft carbonation. Excellent. Tasty and complex.

500 ml bottle from Two Angels Liquors, vintage 2009. Deep reddish brown and clear appearance with a small, fully dissipating tan head. Complex aroma of chocolate malt, dark fruit, caramel/toffee, port wine, mild black licorice and light molasses. Similar flavor, rich, malty, complex and moderately sweet with hints of oxidation. Medium body with soft carbonation, a smooth feel and a pleasant finish. Pretty nice overall.

Dunkelbraun verspricht das Ganze etwas schokoladig-karamelliges. Versprechen gehalten. Dazu Röstmalze, etwas Toffee und ein Schuss Kaffee. Schwer, leicht alkoholisch, blumiger, vollmundiger Abgang. Toll.

DruncanVeasey (8873) - Nr NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JAN 21, 2018
Bottle at Trenaglos, 02/01/17. Ruby with a dense bone-coloured bonce. Fine herbal and coniferous hop notes emerging amidst a slew of soft prune, honey and fig. That soft malt rich molasses and preserved stone fruit taste awash with subtle richness, discreetly backed with herbal and honeyed cherry blossom hop. Hints of milk chocolate, raisin and rust. Possibly a saline hint too. Instantly Germanic. Very fine nightcap sipping.

jb (3760) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2018
Heavy on the dark fruit, both in the nose and the taste. Appearance is a light orange tinged brown, with sparse spotty lace. Palate is syrupy, sweet, but with wood, caramel, licorice undertones. very good, in the classic style, true to style.

Iphonephan (8461) - Jackson Hole/McLean, Virginia, USA - JAN 16, 2018
From a 500 ml bottle. Pours a clear dark mahogany with an ecru head. Aroma of caramel and toffee. Flavors are sweet caramel. Smooth and delicious.

GSAP (771) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 17, 2017
Met dank aan Mutz, een halve liter fles. Donker bruinzwart met weinig kraag. Smaak is rozijnen, beetje drop en Kerstige zoetheid. Nasmaak licht kruidig, kruipt iets te snel weg. Iets doordrinkbaar, aroma van kruidenbitter en zakje caramel fudge, wel lichtjes.

SaintMatty (8214) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - DEC 11, 2017
500ml Bottle - Very dark brown with some red tinges. Raisins, chocolate, plums and some roasted notes in the aroma. Malty and fairly fruity taste with raisins, blackcurrant and chocolate detected. A fairly rich yet easy to drink doppelbock.
