StueyD (1584) - Heacham, Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2014
A dark reddish brown coloured beer with a frothy ivory head. A malty aroma, there is hints of other cereal, wheat and oat, plus light caramel and ripe fruit. Medium mouthfeel. A sweet roasted malt taste, along with wheat, there is a caramel smoothness and a rich ripe fruit flavour of raisins, plus a tiny hint of liquorice. Finally there is a background alcoholic tartness suggesting the strength. The finish is smooth and malty. sturmthis (1149) - Bavaria, GERMANY - MAR 19, 2014
500ml bottle. Dark brown color with little head. Slight cheery aroma. Hides the alcohol well. Decent bock. darioklc (789) - Karlovac, CROATIA - FEB 4, 2014
Mild dark chocolate and roasted coffee flavours, with a slightly burnt toffee semi-sweetness in the aftertaste. The beer getting sweeter as it warmed.
Mouth/body feel was fine, neither rich or creamy, but certainly not watery.
Very easy to drink although it has 7% ABV. zenkis (861) - Ogre, LATVIA - JAN 1, 2014

Aroma - quite simple, malty, sweetish. Color - medium dark, too light for dunkel for me. Taste - good, sweet, malty, quite good hopping. High carbonation, quite dry finish, a bit reminds Schwarzbier.
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 Solid black pour, small head, sweet malty aroma. Tastes of malt, some booze notes, light hops notes, but nothing really strong. Smooth finish, decent bock

Had this at Bierbar Alkopole, Mitte, Berlin, Germany Saturday 16th November 2013 Dark brown beer with small beige head. Bit chewy, bit sweet, bit malty and quite a strong beer. Soft in mouth, caramel showing, slight numbingness going on, not sure what from, is there a little spice numbing I wonder? Fine.

500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours dark brown with a red tinge, initially a thick white head that reduces to a few mm and stays there due to steady stream of bubbles. Aromas of liquorice, dark toffee, faint woody boozy note. Taste is quite sweet, expected more roastiness, but really just sweet. Coffee coming through in the finish. Creamy-to-sticky texture. OK.
