3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 13/20
Rated on the hedonism scale here--this is a light, airy, fruity beer that hides its ABV exceedingly well. Not remotely like the brutal over-the-head burn of a Slavic strong lager, and welcome for it. Not much else going on--a bit of bitterness on the finish, and a grapefruit-y taste throughout.
18-10-2017; bottle; at home (bought somewhere in Tallinn, Estonia).
The looks of the beer are fine. The color of the beer is a nice golden yellow. The beer is crystal clear. On top a nice layer of rough white foam is formed. Foam retention is rather low. A thin drape is left after minutes. Some slight lacing is left. Not bad, but not extremely special.
The smell of the beer is nice. It is quite a sweet smell. I smell sweet malts, some fruity touches and simple bitter hops. The alcohol is also present in the smell, and also gives a certain sweetness. I also smell some yeast, giving a creamy thing.
The taste of the beer is nice. It has the same nice sweet malts, but overall it is less sweet than the smell. The hops give a nice bitter balancing taste. The hops are a bit herbal, which is nice. Besides this, I taste some sweet alcohol. Nice. The beer is in good balance.
The palate of the beer is average. Medium body, slightly thin texture and high carbonation. The finish of the beer contains some nice sweet malts, an almondy alcohol flavour and some bitterness from the hops. All in all, quite a nice beer. I like it.

50 cl. bottle. Medium high flyffy lasting white head. Clear yellow golden body. If there was any aroma I could not find it, might be my fault. Weak and very sweet straw, corn I guesss flavor with little hops bitterness, low carbonation and a short sweet finish. nimbleprop (8709) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 30, 2016
On tap at Alexandri Pub Parnu, pours a muddy brown, thin white head. Nose is odd, soggy bread, malt, something a touch sour, some raisin, some cheap white grape. Flavor is soured cola, soggy bread, malt, some bad cheap caramel, raisins, booze. Finishes astringent. Sort of a train wreck. Filipbeer (164) - - AUG 27, 2016
Really simple bock. Golden color with white head. Quite weak aroma with a subtle metallic off-odor. Malty sweetness is present in mouth. Low body and low carbonation. Not recommendable beer at all. MartR (356) - Aespa, ESTONIA - AUG 10, 2016
Clear golden looks and no aroma to speak of. Light palate and totally tasteless. Strong booze keeps overpowering the whole thing. It’s even worse than I remember from back in the days when youngsters try all sorts of beers. The grainy aspect is gone as far as I remember. Maybe it’s the can’s fault, who knows or cares. I’m only here to get my Malt Liquor tick.

0,33 can. Pours golden with small white head. Aroma of basic lager, but added strong alcoholic aftertaste. Gets you drunk fast, but not for tasting. nybol (2311) - DENMARK - MAR 12, 2016
Spændende at smage en øl fra de baltiske lande. Denne gang en Bock, og tilmed dobbletbock.
Den har en lettere smag end mange bock, og den smager ikke at 8%. Den har dog klare mangler for at kunne kalde sig en rigtig bock efter min smag. Den er alt for spritet i smagen, og mangler den fylde en bock ofte har.
Mit eksemplar af Le Cog’s Double Bock er købt som dåseøl i en grænsebutik, og mine forventninger var ikke for høje, men blev alligevel skuffet over kvaliteten. phfyysik (1391) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 13, 2016
Pours quite light golden with white top which stays for a while. Nose is dusty, some hay, malts and cat piss. Mouth is sweet, dust, hay, paper, some alcohol. Quite unpleasant, but may be drinkable in some occasions. VamboladeTolly (2172) - Tartu, ESTONIA - FEB 8, 2016
