Cantabrian (1131) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - APR 5, 2013
Best Bockbier ever. It seems that these very pious guys have managed to make a Bockbier with the character and complexity of a Belgian ale. Perfect appearance, so creamy that one would hardly believe it’s out of a bottle. All the basement fruits, the yeasty barn, late autumn scents and flavours. Everything so subtle and smooth that you’d hardly think it’s a rather high alcohol content. Perfection. luttonm (6308) - Seattle, Washington, USA - APR 2, 2013

Bottle 330ml @ Sommerhusworldbeertaste (1805) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2013
Pours clear dark brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, toffee and floral. Taste is medium sweet and light bitter. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.
Medium to dark brown that is hard to see through with a thick, lasting, lacy, frothy, tan head. Smells of dark fruit (prunes and apricot) fills the glass with toasted, caramel and roasted malt and a hazelnut element with a bit of alcohol in the background but not that noticeable. Medium frothy oily body with faint carbonation. Nice sweet toasted malt taste and some light spice with a soft bitterness of a roast in the middle and finishes with a balance of sweet fruit and dark chocolate. Dry and spiced finish. Very easy to drink and the alcohol is only slightly noticeable. A nice bock.
