scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 6, 2005
Crystal clear sparkling amber, thick fizzy white head. The nose held notes of toasted caramel and toffee, lightly soured dark fruit bread, and a hint of chocolate. Bitter-sweet up front, toasty, and lightly bittered on the back end. Medium bodied, light carbonation, smooth, bittersweet, toasted toffee and dark fruity finish. A very nice bock for every now and then...

kwoeltje (2233) - Manchester, Missouri, USA - FEB 25, 2005
(bottle) Medium caramel color with rapidly fading head. Big sweet aroma. Flavor is malt with very distinct alcohol. Has a skunked aftertaste (? from the green bottle) which spoils what was otherwise a good bock.

dortmunder (961) - Herdecke, GERMANY - FEB 22, 2005
Bottled. Somewhat hoppy, malty aroma. Taste is caramelly, sweet, malty with a hoppy finish. Slightly creamy texture. Unfortunately my bottle was slightly skunked, but it showed only in the finish. The beer, though, has to be absolutely fresh, being from the first shipment of the maibock-season. Despite the skunkiness, this beer is quite nice.

jeffc666 (1984) - Fairfax, Virginia, USA - FEB 20, 2005
UPDATED: FEB 21, 2005 Sparkling clear caramel body topped by a dense collapsing off-white head. Sure looks appealing in the glass. The aroma is very sweet and malty, has touches of that Eggenberg sweetness. A very pure noble hop aroma lurks behind the malts. The flavor is quite nice and malty, medium-light bitter throughout. Caramel, dominates but it is not totally out of whack as the hops making a surprising show right about time you swallow. The alcohol is well masked but not so much so that you do not notice it. Hey I want a little bit of pleasing alcohol in my bocks. Really quite a nice beer.

verymerrymonk (413) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 18, 2005
Clear copper body with a persistent, foamy head. Aroma is spicy and slightly sweet. Flavor is lots of the same with caramel, but seems watered down compared to what I anticipated from the smell.

Sammy (11750) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 3, 2005
smooth medium mouthfeel, and a bitter aftertaste with a crisp tingling tongue. Golden yellow and a white tan lace and initially very creamy pour. A warm weather ale, and with 11 degrees on January 1st, that was fine.

shadey (2095) - Nashville, Tennessee, USA - DEC 30, 2004
Pour is a light amber color with a small head that quickly dissipates. Very interesting aroma. Lots of smells, including spices, malt and hops. Lots of different flavors with a sweet finish. Pretty nice stuff.

Crockett (1115) - Southampton, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 11, 2004
Pours deep amber with a medium sized small beaded white head. Heavily malted caramel herbal hop. A little spiced bread. Not skunked but certainly not fresh. Buttery and smooth. Very sharp herbal twinges throughout. Not all that exciting.

UPDATED: DEC 5, 2004 deep bock with a malty head. smoother than i expected. tasted more alcoholic than the 6.5%. slightly sweet, very above average

Ungstrup (36175) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 17, 2004
A clear caramel colored beer with a huge off-white head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of spices, caramel, and hops. The flavor is very sweet and caramelic with notes of alcohol as well as hops in the end. The mouthfeel is sticky.
