500ml bottle. Pokal glass. Enjoyed on sep´12. Ruby in color headed by beige crown. Fairly good retention. Strong chocolate, figs, candies & coffee notes both in flavors & aromas. Gentle mild toasted caramel malt upfront followed by underlying bitterness. Strong licorice & dates. Full body. Soft carbonation. Oily to watery texture. Slightly bitter cocoa finish. Hints of coffee & licorice extract on the aftertaste. Subtle involving alcoholic touch. Well balanced flavors & aromas. Delicious beer!!

Bottle: Poured a clear light amber color bock with a medium foamy head with OK retention. Aroma of light caramelized malt is OK though lacking esters. Taste is a simple mix of medium caramelized malt with not much else in terms of noticeable characteristics. Body is slightly below average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. No brewing flaws but lacking interesting fruity esters I usually associate to the style – this kind of confirm my theory that this is a very difficult style to brew.
