Bov (12636) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 25, 2013
from Drinks of the World, Bern - cloudy chestnutty in colour and with a quite persistent head; aroma of honey and wet brushwoods; fizzy and with a good malt backbone; some fair initial sweetness and a late gentle acidity to bring some balance; some residual sweetness and more honeyish tones in the finish

750 ml. bottle. Pours reddish brown with a nice white head. Aroma of fruit, caramel, honey, and yeast. Taste is fruit, caramel, honey, spice, and yeast. On the sweet side. Enjoyable.

"Gold" must not be in reference to the color, as this pours dark copper. Tastes like sweet honey on dark bread.

daknole (11044) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2013
Brownish pour, off white head. Honey and more honey in this one. Malty, bready notes and honey all over the place!

JDBaker11058 (2133) - Maryland, USA - MAR 26, 2013
Appearance: deep, dark, clear ruby, with a white, bubbly head that lingers aggressively. Aroma: lots of honey, dark grains, chestnuts, brown bread, caramel, cardboard, leather, and a hint of dark fruit. Taste: bock-like malts, with honey, and a hard-to-describe rustic bread note, with honey and a surprising amount of fruit as it warms (peaches, cherries, even citrus); lots of sweet-roasted nuts also. Finish: smooth, slightly crisp, and a little sweet. Notes: The flavor and aroma had a very hard to characterize note of somehow extremely rustic grain, almost like a very rough whole-grain bread. Didn’t particularly love that, but this was a very interesting beer nonetheless. I also wouldn’t really categorize it as a doppelbock, because it’s very different than any doppel I’ve ever hard. More like a rustic farmhouse lager-bock. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club.

Nice honey bock. Strong honey aroma, even stronger honey flavor. A very smooth beer, with a stunning brownish-hued gold color.

the honey aroma comes at you as soon as you open the bottle. weird that it says "ale" on the label. i thought bocks were lagers.
