Leighton (21256) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2015
Draft at Brauerei Spezial in Bamberg during the Post-Christmas Bamberg Jolly of January 2014. Pours clear amber with a creamy tan head. The nose is rife with toffee, dark fruits, mellow smoke, bread. Medium sweet flavor with lots of toasted toffee, light alcohol, faint earth. Medium bodied, smooth, with fine carbonation. Moderately sweet to finish, with dry toasted caramel, faint earthy bitterness, restrained smoke. Solid.

bartlebier (3982) - Belchium im Biersgau, GERMANY - DEC 30, 2014
UPDATED: JAN 15, 2015 Draught at source 12/2014. Well-balanced smoke (dried Schwarzwälder Schinken) & toffee in aroma give way to even more well-balanced Bock flavours of plum compote, maroni, gingerbread, spices, a liquorice lining. Good plain drinkability, for a Bock.

3fourths (9347) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2014
Draft at the brewery in Bamberg, November 2014. Clear chestnut brown with a medium off-white head. Papery, starchy, somewhat bland. Cara malt with light saltiness. Fizzy carbonation is brash on the tongue. Subtle paper smoke character. Lightly ashy more than meaty. Salty in the way of meaty jerky brine and liquid smoke. Served frigid so it takes some time to warm and open up but still it’s more simple than I recall, but it’s been 8 years between samples. From draft at In de Wildeman, Amsterdam in May 2006 I scored it 3.7.

worldbeertaste (1805) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2014
Smells of sweet cherries, smoke, sausage, smoked malt. Medium thin body. Tastes of dark caramel, mild malt and a fruity smoked finish. Interesting and a bit boring but drinkable. A bit thin.

Moravius (1291) - Pyongyang, NORTH KOREA - FEB 24, 2014
Bamberger Bierwochenende, Bier Nr. 7. Vom Faß im Spezialkeller, Bamberg. - Tiefstes Rotbraun, rasch schwindender beigefarbener Schaum. In der Nase karamellige Süße, Blockmalz und ein Hauch von Rauch (Schwarzwälder Schinken). Im Antrunk Rosinensüße und Blockmalz; schwer aber nicht dick. Dezente Rauchnote; leichte dunkle Frucht. Mild rezent. Für ein Bockbier enorm leicht und süffig. Abgang fein fruchtig mit ganz leichter Zitrusnote, leicht grasig-pfeffriger Hopfen. - Süßes Blockmalz, dezenter Rauch, fruchtige Note und kühlender Hopfen in perfekter Harmonie. Vorzüglich!
