330 ml bottle into tulip glass, no bottle dating. Pours fairly crystal clear ruby copper color with a 2 finger fairly dense light khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Slight spotty lacing clings on the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation retaining the cap. Aromas of raisin, plum, apple, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, toast, brown bread, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of malt and fruity yeast ester notes; with good strength. Taste of raisin, plum, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, toffee, herbal, floral, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Lingering notes of raisin, plum, apple, caramel, toast, brown bread, brown sugar, toffee, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice balance and complexity of malt and fruity/earthy yeast ester flavors; with solid robustness and no cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly slick mouthfeel that is good. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this is a very good doppelbock style. Good balance and complexity of malt and fruity yeast ester flavors; and very smooth to sip on. A nicely enjoyable offering.

Such a wonderful beer for the price. only bought singles but maybe this could age a year or two. While winter increases its grip, so the heavy lagers mitigate. A tad tarter and a tad more assertive, this is a bock for almost all occasions. Tons of flavor with all the drinkability you'd want, the Winter-Bock is a really good beer.

Nice beer. I am a fan of this style and I think it's a good representation of it. I don't think it is quite as good as Celebrator, but it is definitely good.
I think it is lacking in smell and appearance,but it excels in all the other categories.
I would buy this again.

Einbecker Winter Bock is a wonderful beer although a bit too bitter for my taste. I prefer their Mai Bock as it is a little bit sweeter. The smell of this beer is wonderful and it seems almost a waste to drink it up. If you pour it into a glass its color cannont be duplicated. It has a wonderful rich malty taste for doppelbock.
