Norges beste bokkøl. Flott skum, herlig duft. Helt genialt sammen med sjokolade. rarbring (2294) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JUN 6, 2013

Bottled. Thanks Roger Furseth.
Okay, this is not at all a flawless beer but it has character. Just like some breweries, it suffers from bad environment. Dark copper colour it is, the head is big and light brown. Aroma is very buttery, on the edge of being harsh but I enjoy it. Flavour is wonderfully soft malty, there is a gentle touch of roastiness/licorice and also chocolate. A bit on the sweet side perhaps but here it just adds to the flavour. Long finish. Furseth (2159) - Kungälv, SWEDEN - MAY 8, 2006

UPDATED: JUL 6, 2005 (Bottle 33 cl) Brown beer, not much head. Very malty and smoked flavours coming closed to being almost burned. Lots of sweetnes and a rather discreet bitterness. Tasty. Another exceptional Norwegian Bock of high quality. 270804

Bottle. Small tan head over clear reddish brown body. Fresh, fairly dry malt aroma. Also some light fruitiness with notes of floral hops. Malt-flavored. Not too sweet, with a pleasant mild hoppy and slight fruity background. Well balanced. Rather light-bodied. Sweetish and spicy finish. A very enjoyable Bock.

Elegant, høy flaske fra polets nettbutikk, delt med Willy på brygga i solnedgangen: flott, kremet skum som varer og dyp brunsvart farge. Mild aroma av mørke maltsorter, litt sjokoilade og et svært diskret humelsnev. Nydelig smak, kremet og balansert med stor og myk munnfølelse. En nydelig øl til en nydelig marskveld.

Bottled. Rubyish/dark copper coloured, small white bubbly head. Rye, raisins and malt in a pleasant mix in the aroma. Sweet fruity flavour with plummy, malty and hoppy hints. Quite weldone and -balanced.
