Bottle from Londis. Sort of an English bock. Quite nice but it lacks the complexity of something like Weltenburger Kloster Asam Bock.

500ml bottle from B&M home store. Pours clear dark mahogany brown, some red chinks shining through, thin, short-lived off-white head. Aromas of treacle, raisins, light metallic note. Some prunes too. Taste is liquorice, molasses, treacle. Faint herbal hops, that donít quite clean up the sticky finish, but they make an effort.

Dark ruby red ,wonderful colour, it has relatively high fizz for its strength, but quickly gives way to a warming deep steeped fruitiness with a slight bitterness to finish. Nice ale

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle at home, a month past its BB date, 7.4%. Very dark reddy brown, sparkling, small tan head. Aroma is yeast, some apple and coins, wet paper. Body is rounded, soft carbonation, touch foamy. Taste is breathy dark malts, dates, treacle, tangy booze. Something quite íBelgianí about it - not sure if itís the yeast used... Decent, interesting to try, but probably not one Iíd reach for again.
