25-FEB-2017, bottle @home, brought by Morten WHO got it as a present from Mads. Thx. both :-) Best Before 08 12 11 making it more than six years old. How old? Dont know. Hazy, dark Brown with a low, lasting, off-white head. Taste is caramel, Wood, cherry, Brown sugar. Clearly old but still very much alive. Soft carbonation, low bitterness, sweet but never cloying. Nice. A lot better than I remember fresh versions.

Many thanks to fonefan for this bottle! Smooth malty beginning. Sweetish with a nice malty sweetish basis. Not much bitterness there, hints of roast. Easy to drink with a smooth and slightly sticky aftertaste, that is round and not too sweetish. Nice one.

Copenhagen 23/9 2016. 33 cl bottle from Meny. Chubby beer-drinking King with white beard on the label. On the back of the bottle they advise you to substitute your red wine with this noble brew. Looking at the ABV I am not too suprised by this suggestion. Pours clear Dark amber with off-white head. Head disappears quite fast. Lively carbonation. Looks like a Coca Cola. Aroma of sweet malts, stinky socks and metallic alcohol. Medium carbonation and thick palate. Flavor is sweet and sugary and certainly packs an alcoholic punch. Only very subdued bitterness. I like it betyder thai the light version - but I am NOT ready to trade in my red wine for this.

Import własny (znaczy przez Żonę) z Danii. Piwo o ciemnej, brunatnej barwie, pod światło wygląda jak cola. Niewielka, beżowa piana. W aromacie ciemne owoce, karmel, słd. Podobnie w smaku. Mocno słodowo-karmelowe, z lekką nuta owocową na końcu. Alkohol wyczuwalny, ale nie tak mocno, jak wskazywałaby jego zawartość. Wysycenie średnie, w kierunku wysokiego. Pijalne, ale bez zachwytu!

Dark brown body with a beige head.
Malty and fruity aroma and flavour. Quite sweet and moderately bitter taste. Spicy. Warming alcohol. Finish is very much alcohol.
Medium body with soft mouthfeel and soft carbonation.

Very good bock. Liquid caramel malt with a punch.

25cl from [email protected] in Hancock [email protected] 5 degrees C (too cold) Pours clear dark brown with powerful small beige head with hardly any retention. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel malt and dark fruit. Taste dominated by roasted malt, dark dried fruit and alcohol. Aftertaste mainly also dominated by the roasted malt. Medium body and carbonation. Quite well balanced classic dark beer and the dark fruit is quite interesting - especially on a winters day. Could have done with more liveliness, but it may just have been the rinse aid making the glass detrimental to the beer. Will try again from bottle - it is good enough to deserve that.
