Delicious Bock with a nice malty character. Has a chocolatey and chewy taste to it, and a ruby red colour. I also like the beige head. sic1314 (4967) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2013
Poured a murky brown with e thick frothy head. Aroma of sweet malt and cinnamon. Medium body, flavour is spices, caramel malt and some lingering spicey aftertaste. erickok (6036) - Leuven, BELGIUM - NOV 17, 2012
Creamy bubbly off white head over a dark copper, clean body. Aroma of cinnamon, cookies, rustic bready malts, brown sugar, pepper and vanilla. Really nice. Taste can’t quite keep up the pace, but still a nice spicy body. Quite dry, light bitter and rough sugars in the back. Bit too much carbonation maybe, because it’s not as smooth and rich as I hoped. Great unique cookie aroma, tast eis just an okay bock. (50cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden) BillKismet (4137) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 11, 2012
Gorgeous melanoidin underpinning to this rich amber brew with a caramel froth top. Winter spice gum drop nose titillates the nostrils. Aged melanoidin and brown licorice flavor with a hint of red licorice as well. Mildly grainy and spicy with some birch sap and wintergreen mixed. Mellowed and wonderfully complex. Smoothly satisfying. stevoj (5566) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 4, 2012
Thanks to bierkrug fro the recommendation. This tasty dunkelbock boured a nice deep brown with beige one finger head. Nice and roasty flavor, snooth on the palate with just a touch of bitterness. I’m likin’ it!

UPDATED: JAN 3, 2014 Die Schaumkrone hält mittelmäßig-gut. Geschmacklich ist es süß, hopfig und Alkoholisch. Fazit: Zwar nicht ganz so gut wie erhofft aber doch gut trinkbar!!

50cl bottle @ home shared with Joes. Clear dark copper color, medium sized off-white head that leaves good lacing. Smell malts, sweetness, yeast, manure. Taste malts, grains, chalk, sweetness, plus something weird. Don’t like it. after4ever (8025) - Mukilteo, Washington, USA - FEB 27, 2012
Draft at elliott bay. Crystal clear very dark brown with a loose tan head. Big malty sweet caramel and brown bread nose. Creamy light body. Caramel and brown bread mid palate with a little bit of honey. Mild finish. Good dunkler. jonas (8035) - Garching b. München, GERMANY - FEB 23, 2012
Bottle. Chestnut, low head. Light bready aroma. Sweet roast base, light braed , grassy finish. Medium body, mellow mouthfeel. Not super exiting.
