It’s warm golden with a huge, creamy and lasting head, and the aroma has notes of malt, bread, flower and slightly spicy alcohol. The flavour is sweet with notes of malt, bread, flower/fruit and a hoppy, spicy alcohol-bite.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottled (BB 07/2010)
Courtesy of bierkoning, tu Edo!
Slightly hazy orange-golden color, small white head. Aroma is neutral with grainy and barley notes. Flavor is straight-forward, standard, clean helles bock: malty base, grainy notes, some citrus/herbal hoppyness and alcohol. Not as sweet as many other German strong bocks. Lingering bitterness and alcohol in the aftertaste. Ok.

Bottle, bought @ the brewery. Pale golden color. Soft tropical fruit aroma. Grassy herbal hopbitter flavor. malty sweetness hidden by the quiet but omnipresent hoppiness. Earthy notes, especially in the finish. Good!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draft at Café Abseits. Sweetish malt nose with a certain fruity note. Mild sweetness with a firm and lingering hop bitterness. Almost perfectly balanced and dangerously drinkable. Tasty, bittersweet bock that hardly puts a foot wrong.

(bottle) pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of grassy herbal hops, watermelon and some light grainy pale malts, slightly sweet. flavour is mostly bready, grainy malts with notes of sweet spices, almost belgian in a way. medium-bodied with smooth carbonation and a dry, alcoholic finish. quite different to most examples of the style.

Bottle (enjoyed the last night at the hotel before leaving). Orangeish golden colour with mediumsized fluffy white head, that leaves some lace. Aroma is bready malts, some hayish notes as well as alcoholic sweetness. Flavour is quite much the same with alcohol giving quite a burn. Also some herbal and slightly spicy notes.
