750 ml bottle - kindly shared by BelgBeerGeek at the epic beer tasting - pours deep brown with a marroon head. Aroma of dried forest fruits. Medium body with sweetness (make me think of a barley wine). Taste of plums and alcohol warmth. ekstedt (6727) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 7, 2012
From a bottle at GBF 2012. Clear chestnut, medium beige head. Nutty and caramelly malt aroma with some chocolate. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Semi sweet, medium bitterness. yngwie (17038) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - SEP 1, 2012
Bottle, 33cl. 2009 vintage. It’s an almost clear one, amber in color and with a small, dark beige head leaving lacings. The aroma is of the malty kind, with caramel and some cocoa, but there’s also a pleasant hoppy touch to it. That hoppyness is present in the flavor too, giving fruityness and some bitterness to deal with the caramel maltyness. Hints of cocoa too. Full body, pleasant carbonation. A pleasant beer indeed, although not the typical bock. 111229 BelgBeerGeek (1308) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - JUL 31, 2012

Bottle. Cloudy dark brown beer, little tan head. Soft smooth palate. Creamy malt with sublte unsweet chocolate. Nice fruity mid - generic fruits that are a little sweet. Dry hop, mildly spicy. Finishes slightly tangy with a trace of tea. A complex Bock - very drinkable.
Hazy black body with a creamy brown head - lovely looks. Complex aroma of citrus, coffee, cacao, raisins, port, alcohol, ... Heavily bitter, moderately sweet flavour. Nice, warm mouthfeel, but not fully in balance. laiti (8374) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 19, 2012
