Deep ruby colour, small beige head. Caramel, maltyness in the nose. Medium-bodied. Sweetish malty German-style dark bock. Clean. As it is quite sweet one, probably best with food.
Medium dark reddish brown colour. Nice colour. Small head. Holmen1 (6575) - Stavanger, NORWAY - DEC 1, 2017
Nose: Initially rye & wheat bread dough, yeast. Then, as it opens up; sweet malt, caramel and some smoke.
Taste: Malt, some rye, some smoke, slightly spicy. The arrival is sweater than the exit, where dark malt bitterness and perhaps some hops bitterness catch up with the sweetness of the malt. Medium body and medium low carbonation. I have to say that this is quite well balanced but after the raving reviews I had hoped for more complexity. Brewed only two months ago, will probably have improved noticeably already by Christmas. And it does improve with time in the glass...

Mørk, søtlig aroma og smak med røde bær, mørke karameller og urter i en god maltkropp. Mild bitterhet og saftig ettersmak. jesperhammer (4949) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 20, 2017
