0.5l bottle @ Naboen, Bergen shared with ClubGonzo. The Bock pours a near murky dark-brown body with a small beige bubbly sidesticking head. Aroma has sweet elements of dark malts, bread, some ashy notes, sweet marzipan and some hints of licorice. It’s average carbonated, has a mild oily mouthfeel and it’s medium to full-bodied. Sweet and bready flavors also, lots of dark malts, also some strange notes of cloves and wheat that just as well could have been in a weiz. It ends mildly dry with just a little alco sting in the aftertaste. Yeah, I’m not the biggest bock-boy, but this one was not bad at all. ClubGonzo (5685) - Bergen, NORWAY - SEP 4, 2011
Bottle @ Naboen, Bergen, shared with Palme. Body is dark brown with a faint red hue, topped by a small, off-white head. Marzipan, almonds, syrup and hints of dark malts come to my nostrils as the beer (served too cold as usual in most Norwegian pubs, even those with a good beer selection...*sigh*...) warms up. Taste is similar; strong, sweet marzipan tones, dark malts and molasses is served with a full-bodied, wheat-fueled slick mouthfeel. Taste and aroma are somewhat similar to the Schneider Aventinus Eisbock; the famous (but stronger) wheat eisbock. Only lighter in intensity. Makes sense, really. :-P A pretty nice beer, all in all, and probably a great winter warmer - the autumn in Bergen hasn’t really flexed its muscles yet but this beer works just fine nevertheless.
