500ml Bottle from Beers of Europe (£2.69):
Dark brown with a finger-sized, foamy head that is tan brown & holds well with some nice lacing too.
Sweet & loaded with caramel malts and chocolate notes upfront. A typical bock aroma but a good one at that with some figs and prunes coming through alongside a few subtle hops.
Sweet with strong caramel malts that mirror the nose well, along with some lighter chocolate & darker fruits that include some prunes, figs and raisins. There is also some roasted malts & the beer is quite rich with a hint of bitterness & a warming, boozy finish.
Smooth & full bodied with light carbonation and a creamy mouthfeel that goes down well. There is a lot of sweetness to this one although it manages not to overpower or completely dominate things thankfully and there is a touch of bitterness at the end.
Very filling and chocolaty beer with a fair amount of sweetness. Smooth with a good combination of roasted and sweet malts & although some was noticeable, the alcohol content was well blended with the beer & came as a welcome addition in this case.

A - slightly darker than your typical bock out of the light; a dark brown more akin to a stout than a bock; yet under the light there is a distinct ruby hue to the beer. Really nice head (three fingers) which filled the rip of my stange with a nice eggshell color. Very attractive beer.
S - Smell was not overt; malty with a hint of molasses; a very earthy smelling beer. Not the deepest smelling bock, but solid.
T - not an overly complex taste, but a very nice malty taste hinted with dark fruits, molasses, and an almost coffee-like ending. Unlike some bocks, which err on the side of sweetness, this Asam-Bock is quite balanced and remains so throughout the entire beer.
M - slight carbonation, really great texture and thickness, slight residue of sugar.
O - to be honest, a really great beer. For those who enjoy a sweeter bock, this will not be your cup of tea, for those looking for a nice mix of sweet fruits and depth, this is definitely a beer you'll want to try. Definitely a re-drink.

Poured from 500ml glass into 400ml Radeburger branded seidel.
Appearance: Pours a dark amber-brown color with a large brown-tinted white head that dissipates slowly and yields some small spots of lace.
Smell: Sweet caramel malt is dominant with plum notes and just a hint of grassiness.
Taste: Begins with plum and grape flavors, rounding out to sweet caramel and brown sugar. Finish is still mostly sweet with more bready notes.
Mouthfeel: Thicker body with light carbonation and a slick finish.
Overall: A great doppelbock- surprised I have never heard of this one before. Worth it.
