Smooth and creamy, Munich malt I believe. Unbelievable mouthfeel and taste, perfect if I could dare say. Very well done Dunkler Bock, lagered very well, for at least 3 months. Must try from Norways oldest brewery, dating back to 1834! Family owned for four generations now.

This beer is a nice surprise! Got this bottle from a collegue of mine who was in north Europe. Thanks Diana!
Poured this one into my Struise chalice. Nice big head, very creamy with nice lacing. Deep darkred fluid with no carbonation. That's a pity...
Taste is good. A bit sweet with hints of salmiak. The mouthfeel could be better with some carbonation.

This beer looks beautiful! Dark, dark red, almost black out of the light, a one inch head that lessens bit by bit, about a millimeter stays.
Smells a bit roasty or smokey, some caramel and some sweet, malty alcohol.
Fullbodied, malty, some roasty bitterness. pretty dry.
A really good looking, pretty good tasting beer.

A murky brown, not too viscous, not a lot of head on this one. Really, the beer is some weird combo of green and brown. Cool goat though. Not much aroma wise.
Beer was very different than most bocks I've had, this one was thin, lacked a fruit character, just seemed like someone chinced out on making a porter, went with 1/2 the malt and ended up with a thin brown ale, decided to call it a bock. It was a little undercarbonated, and just lacked taste. Newcastle-y at times. A little creamy, or maybe it just comes off that way because there is nothing else to pick up on.
Cool name though.

A: Pours a translucent brown with red highlights. The head, which eventually settled at around a finger and a half, was the most...orderly I have ever seen. It began after a second or two after the pour, and rose steadily and uniformly, without any rockiness.
S: Not terribly strong. Malts are the most noticeable, with a definite raisin presence, and there is a backbone of pilsner-like straw cleanliness.
T: Starts off with a small burst of sweetness, with raisins stealing the show in the middle. The raisin flavor is also sweet, but not quite as much so. The end is less sweet, but still not bitter, and there is not much of an aftertaste.
M: Nothing extraordinary, but balanced and appropriate.
D: I could drink this all night.
An unremarkable, but enjoyable brew. Definitely better than the Juleol I had last night.

Poured from a .33L bottle into a pint glass. Bottle purchased in Norway. Shape does not match the picture, although label is similar. Bottle says best for 12:08. Not exactly sure what that translates into. Light lacing in the glass as I drink it.
A: Pours a rich caramel brown color with a foamy head about 2 fingers in width. Head gradually lowers after a couple minutes, but does not completely disappear.
S: Very inviting with notes of caramel, toasty malt, perhaps some chocolates? Overall a very sweet smelling beer.
T: Wow, this one is a winner. Caramel taste predominates, with a delicious sweet malt taste flowing throughout. There's something else there, a taste almost like cookie dough? Brown sugar? Whatever it is, it's fantastic. Barely notice the alcohol on this 6.5% bock, but it's faintly there in the background. Bottle recommends (in Norwegian) pairing with sharp cheeses or sweet dessert, I believe. I'll be doing that the next time I pick up a bottle of this delicious bock. Hops are faintly there, but this beer is a malt powerhouse.
M: Incredibly smooth and a little syrupy, but in a good way. Really coats the mouth with the caramels and sweet toasted malt flavors.
D: Top notch. At 6.5%, will likely catch up to you before long, but I could really sit down and savor several of these in a sitting. A truly great find.

Aged bottle, similar but not identical label as pictured, also in a tapered brown bottle bearing the Aass brewery stamp.
It poured a deep crimson tone, with a thin ring of bubbles.
Molasses, raisin, and dried plum/prune aroma.
Flavors of sweet raisin, carob or cocoa in the finish, also nutty. It feels full, a little syrupy, with low carbonation.
Wish I had a fresh bottle to compare...considering the source, this one is probably 5+ years old.
