TBone (16522) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 22, 2011
Swing top bottle 500ml (BZ, BB 07/2012)
Deep ruby color, small beige head. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts and some kind of dusty tobacco. Medium-bodied. A bit dry, coffeish bock, some woody, cellary notes. Later when warms up, more sweet and caramelly. Oily palate. Quickly vanishing flavors, otherwise ok, so far the best Gessner Ive had.

bierkoning (12881) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2011
Swing top bottle, bought @ Bierzwerg. dark brown color. Caramelly maltaroma. Malty sweet flavor with some roast, sugary notes and hints of caramel and butter. Theres just enough roast to compensate the sweetness.

mcdav2154 (449) - GERMANY - NOV 25, 2011
Enjoyable bock. Found this little guy at a REWE in Erfurt, Germany. Taste is of caramel and brown sugar with a nice alcoholic bite. Warms you up during a winter night after walking through a Christmas Market. Prost!

Pinball (11982) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2011
swingtop bottle from toft vin. clear dark brown, smooth beige head. sweet malty aroma, some hops (german), roasted malty note, caramel. flavor is roasted malts, oxidized , flowery hops, cardboard , a nice dry roasted malty ending. tastes like it is slightly oxidized, but date is good, and apart from that the beer seems fresh enough. Perhaps something else?.

Koelschtrinker (18730) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 17, 2011
Rstmalziger und slicher Geruch. Leicht slicher Antrunk, im Mittelteil kommt ein angenehm malziges Aroma hinzu, anschlieend ansprechend hopfig. Im Nachgeschmack lecker rstmalzig, leider auch etwas zu s. Schmeckt nicht wirklich als wren es 6,8%. Ansprechend, oberes Mittelfeld. Test vom 13.1.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 9,10,11,13,11,12 - 11,35

Shakesbeere (219) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 25, 2011
0.5L bottle in Berlin. Pours a dark caramel brown. Smells of roasted malt and caramel. Tastes of roasted malt, caramel, and molasses with a bitter background. Finish is a balance between bitter and brown sugar. Pretty good.

Oakes (16465) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 18, 2011
Ruby-brown colour. Rich thick bock, treacly tones, very chocolatey and earthy. Very nice - theres some firm alcohol on the nose, not as much as on the palate.

Grima (2366) - Merzkirchen, RLP, GERMANY - JAN 22, 2011
Beautiful dark brown color, cream-like head. The smell is rather reserved. Malty sweet and subtly roasty. It starts strong malty, with a nice sweet flavor. The aftertaste is roasty and almost a little chocolatey. Reminds partly to a good Stout. Fabulous Bockbier!
