Dark amber colour with almost no head. Aroma of hops, alcohol. Flavour is similar, with caramel notes and typical "Lasko" carbonation which is exaggerated. I dont bealive, this beer have 7,9% abv.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at home, 330ml, thanks to MarkoNm. Into a taster, ABV 7.6%
Clear amber colour, lots of activity in it. One finger of thin tan headm with good retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Very heavy malty aroma, like it’s a non alcoholic one, very sweet, caramel, hay.
Taste mostly of caramel and malts, fortunately not as heavy as the aroma implied. Very sweet though and quite artificial, especially the alcohol on the aftertaste seems like they poured pure ethanol to boost it up.
Medium thin body, okay carbonation. Sticky palate.
Not a good one, macro produced bocks, like the ones I find here from Grolsch and Bavaria. Okay for one time only.

Nice clear nutty pour with a thick off white head. Good lacing. Inviting start. Mild malty, mild fruity and a bit nutty aroma. Medium (+) body. Round nice mellow sweetness and an ok bitterness. Average carbonation. Dried fruits, caramel and a bit nutty flavor. Decent nice dunkel bock.
[Bottle (one year after BB - seems like a god idea - a lot better than the other ratings here) from a trade with MarkoNm]

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle, courtesy of Kita. It has a surprising, liqueur-like feel, and partly resembles an English strong ale due to its (red) fruitiness, raisin notes and toasted malty sweetness. Not bad indeed.
