500ml bottle poured into a lager glass. HG looks like a good bock, being brown with a tint of red. The head is a little thin though. The aroma is nicely sweet with floral touches, raisins and alcohol. Umm bock! It has that dark fruit and alcohol flavor so inherent to the style. The body is a tad thin but not detrimentaly so. The finish is a sweet and syrupy.
Shared at a tasting, small creamy head, cloudy murky brown color, aroma of dried fruits, sour bread and hints of rum and barnyard, flavor of dark bread, candy and some graininess, dried fruits aftertaste. Quite nice and enjoyable. zvsn (2058) - ISRAEL - JUN 2, 2017

Rating #2395 - 2016.03.28 - Bottle 2/5 in the forgotten box. Dark brown pour with a tan head that fades fairly slowly. Mild-medium carbonation. Aroma is coffee, hint of toffee and roasted malt. Taste is a little earth, wheat, mild smoke, and just super walnutty. Cristobal37 (1115) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 29, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 29, 2017 Dark brown with a thin layer of head. Sweet burned sugar, caramel and hawaiian bread. Nice long lasting sweet malts. Some fortification is apparent, but this isn?t boozy whatsoever. My German sucks but I think this is a steinbier, where hot stones are used during brewing. The caramel is definitely there but the ash or soot is not so noticeable. Really nice and worth trying. Tayeth (643) - North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - JAN 23, 2017
Geruch nach Brombeeren und Sirup sowie Schokolade. Geschmack leicht angebrannt, viel Karamell, Malzbonbons und etwas Schokolade. Leicht alkoholische Note.
