Deep red brown color. Medium foamy head. Coffee and chocolate aroma. Full bodied bock. Malty and hoppy. Malts are slightly sweet. Coffee and chocolate flavor. Nice balance. Full flavor. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and slightly dry. Aftertaste is slightly bitter, a very slight alcohol bite in the aftertaste. Nice bock.

Pours a nice medium brown with not much head to speak of,big fruity aromas some orange peel along with some sweet caramel and nuttiness.Taste is dominated by a caramel sweetness with an underlying bread dough maltiness not overly sweet but not much if any hops to be found.Somewhat of a "modest" bock but not a bad brew I would drink again givin the chance.

Presentation: 330ml custom green bottle. There's this little goat, with big horns, that appears to be either mounting or hugging a big 'ole stien of beer. Regardless, the little buddy looks excited.
Appearance: Dark amber/tarnished brown in colour with a nice, full tan lace.
Smell: Sweet malts, caramel and grain aromas.
Taste: Smooth, full bodied beer with loads of upfront rich malt complexities. Ripe fruits, caramel, burnt raisin and faint hints of molasses. Some toasted flavours. Hops are there, but they are soft. Just enough to balance the malt sweetness with a floral flavour that is incredibly delectable. Alcohol is warming and mixes well with a light hop prickle/bitterness. Finishes with some residual sweetness and some grain dryness.
Notes: This is a formidable Bock beer. Truly inspired and addictive to the palate. Bottle conditioned.

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.

Dark brown and clear color. Head is a decent 1/4 inch for about 30 seconds, then a yellowish trace. Woody and chocolatey smell. Taste is decently malty, a little too sweet, some sense of walnut, toffee, and a bit of a sweetened tea impression. Touch of twang at the finish. Decent flavor, enhanced by aroma but too sweet and non-complex for me...the carbonation is on the fizzy side as well.

This Norwegian bock pours a deep amber hue with a sticky tan head that lasts nicely. The smell is rather nutty and presents a somewhat toasted malt aroma. The taste is rather similar with the nutty, malty flavors taking priority. The mouthfeel was a little thinner than I'd expected. It wasn't as creamy as I'd imagined. As far as drinkability goes, I wasn't overly disappointed that I only had one bottle of this in the fridge. That's not to say it wasn't bad, however for the price I expected more.

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.

Pours a brown color with amber tints throughout. Tan head forms and then just as quickly fades, leaving minimal lace on the glass.
Aroma is sweet malt, caramel and wheat bread, yeasty note with a hint of alcohol.
Flavors of dark fruits, caramel, slight touch of molasses and a hint of smoke. Minor bittering on the finish but majority of flavor is sweet malt. Hops just prevent from becoming annoyingly sweet. Alcohol taste on the finish is very warming and a touch dry and spicy. Well balanced beer.
Mouthfeel is a touch thin but not anything to subtract from enjoyment. Drinakability is high, can imagine a few pints of this would do some damage to the grey matter.

The beer pours a deep clear garnet the color with the head voluminous and light tan in color, the lace a decent covering upon the glass. Nose is all malt with a sweet hint of caramel; start is inordinately sweet and the top light. Finish is delicately dry, benignly carbonated, leniently hopped, drinkable, but a little "Weak/watery for this "olde Strong Beer Lover".

This beer is a clear brown brew with no particular head on it.
Smell is big fruity and grainy with a fairly strong malty scent.
Taste is sweet and malty, as you would expect fair amount of plums and raisins in the flavor. No real hop flavor present this is a malt beer.
Mouthfeel is good.
Very drinkable bock beer, a good example of the style.

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.

The ABV in Norway is 6,5%. This is the best Norwegian beer you can get. Beautiful, very dark reddish brown colour, moderate carbonation. Complex aroma and flavour, hints of spices, oak and liqourice. Very well balanced. Great aftertaste.
