(Bottle) Pours clear orange amber to red with a small off-white. The aroma is grainy (oat?) and caramelly with clear tones of banana, pears, clove and bread alongside a grassy, light herbal hop profile. The malt is almost spicy. Very sweet/sugary on the nose. Hint of honey. The flavour is near heavily sweet and light to medium bitter with a robust maltiness of grain and syrupy caramel. Undertones of grassy hops, banana/pear esters and some clove-ish phenols. The mouthfeel is sticky and round with a soft carbonation. Lingering sticky, bready and hop grassy finish. Medium to full bodied. Too clean and sweet for my liking. Koelschtrinker (20412) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUL 22, 2011
Mild malzig füllender Geruch. Malzig-würziger Antrunk, den Mundraum füllend und sich weiter ausdehnend. Im gleichem Verhältnis würzig-aromatisch. Nicht zu stark, vollmundig, etwas nach Kräutern und Getreide. Süßlich-röstig werdend, sehr aromatischer und langer Nachgeschmack.

Draft. An unclear dark amber beer with a lazing off-white head. The aroma has strong notes of spices - especially cloves, as well as medium notes of malt, citrus, and banana. The flavor is sweet malty with a slight acidic edge and notes of citrus, bread, cloves, and banana, leading to a dry wheaty finish. The oatsmeal gives it a good body. A funny mixture of German and Belgian brewing tradition, but a very interesting combo. OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 1, 2009

Øldage 2009. Amber colored body. Low offwhite head. Spicy and fruity aroma, malts in the background. Taste is quite sweet, soft malty, bready, with lots of dark fruit flavors. Very mildly hopped. Syrupy mouthfeel. Well-bodied. Sweet malty and fruity finish. Not your everyday bock, a very interesting one.
On tap at Copenhagen Beer Festival.
Sweet bock, not too exciting. Malty flavour, rather sticky.

On tap at Nørrebro’s 5 year anniversary. A clear, amber beer with a small off-white head. Sweetish on the nose with dried fruits, some green apples and something reminiscent of wheat. Sweet in the mouth, with dried fruits, caramel, fresh fruits and some bitterness. Sticky, full-bodied mouthfeel. Lasting finish with some banana, green apples, spices and bitterness. A quite pleasant beer challenging the limits of bockbeers. (080911) rlgk (18850) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2008

UPDATED: APR 11, 2009 (On tap) Clear warm dark amber with a small off-white head. Aroma of roasted malt and some phenols or diacetyls. Quite full-bodied with a fairly solid malt base and a whiff of pumpernickel. Again an underlying salinity. Dry and lightly bitter finish. 110908 Rune (12803) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 6, 2008
Shining mahogany body topped by a thin, circular edge. Alcoholic smell with notes of dark fruits. Taste of ripe banana supported by cloves and a fair amount of dark fruits. Alcohol beneath. Bitterness on a rather low level. Soft carbonation and clean tasting (served lightly chilled late in the morning at Nørrebro Bryghus, Copenhagen 20.09.2008).
