Bottle bought at the Great British Beer Festival. Nice malty aroma, hint of chocolate. Fine, rich malty backbone. Fine bock, hints of complexity and very moreish. Grzesiek79 (4364) - Radom, POLAND - JUN 25, 2017
Many thanks for this beer to kevnic2008. Piwo ma spora piane odstajaca ponad kuflowe brzegi szkla, szarawa gestawa i trwala. Aromat aronni i jagod. Smak te wlasnie ciemne jagodowe owoce, nieco piernika z rodzynkami, jest tresciwei, trochę zrumienionego karmelu, prazony słonecznik, nawet lekka kontra w postaci chmielowej nuty jest calkiem obecna co w tym stylu to zadkie. BArdzo smaczne i porządne piwo Lore (2825) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAY 19, 2017

UPDATED: APR 26, 2017 On tap at Kneitinger Keller, Regensburg. Sweet almost chocolatey bock with strong toffee character. Sticky mouthfeel. Reminds me of a cafe latte at least the flavor. Really delicious. MJ wasn?t kidding it?s a great bock. And only 6%!! SaintMatty (7443) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 3, 2017
500ml Bottle - Copper red in colour with a foamy head. Malty and fruity aroma with wort, raisins and caramel detected. Malty, fruity and slightly soapy (but in a good way surprisingly) taste with grain, raisins, dates and berries detected. Overall a nicely balanced and interesting bock.

Draft @ Brauerei Kneitinger, Nov. 2015. Deep garnet with high clarity. Off-tan head is well-retained. Complex and singular aroma of maple, hazelnut, cassis, plum puree, and a hint of tar, java, and black licorice. Soft and tight carbonation. Opens up with a chocolate-dabbed toffee punch of Munich malt which adorns the snappy body. Bold coffee flavors trail alongside an earthy cocoa touch. Very low sugar content, almost to a fault, even though the malt features all the notes I look for. Short-lived candyish viscosity recalls maple sugar before a breadcrusty richness takes foothold. A finessed kiss of soft Hallertau contributes to the remarkable overall refinement. Finishes with light sappy touches amid a hint of maple sugar which is offset by dry and smoky, cocoa-tinged roast and fallen-leaf dimensions. Similar to their polished and delightful dunkel, only this has more intensity. Nice to find such a quaffable dunkler bock with all the malt complexity and elegance, yet without the overaggressive sugars. Another impeccably brewed beer from Kneitinger. deletraz (27) - Lappeenranta, FINLAND - AUG 20, 2016
0.5-litre bottle from mein-biershop.de. Nice, foamy, black and malty with some caramel. Zlotta (3521) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - AUG 5, 2016
0.5 l bottle from ’Mein-Biershop.de’, best before September 2016. Clear, very dark red with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, beige head. Sweetish, malty and slightly roasty aroma of molasses, caramel, toasted nuts, coffee and dark chocolate. Rather sweet, malty and slightly roasty taste of caramel, raisins, prunes, coffee, dark chocolate and toasted nuts, followed by a short, slightly bitter, moderately roasty finish. Medium to full body, slightly oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Nice one! Unusually roasty and less sweet than expected, therefore very enjoyable.
