S: Toffee and malt.

T: Dark chocolate, raisins, toffee, did a good job of hiding the booze.

M: Thick chewy texture, low carbonation.

O: Not as complex as other Bocks, but did the job.

This is a nice, amber colored, translucent beer. Pours with a moderate head, dissipates quickly into a tiny but persistent one. Smells a bit of overripe fruit. Tastes like cane sugar, roasted nuts, and more overripe fruit. The taste of alcohol is pretty evident up front. Just enough hop character to balance everything. Medium body, medium carbonation, plenty of acidity in the aftertaste. At 6.9% abv and 0.5 liter bottle size, this ain't no session beer, so plan ahead. Pretty good Bock but not outstanding.

From the bottle, it pours a coppery amber with a nice, fluffy head that lasts a while. The nose is tempted by the caramel, bread and raisin scents. The taste is heavy on caramel malts, with a touch of alcohol.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

L: gives a clear copper color. Small top of head that disolves quickly. Some lacings on the side of the glass.

S: caramel, tofee, bread, dark fruits like raisins, prunes and plums.

T&F: follows much of the aroma.bready malt with fruity sweetness. In the middle and the finish it get a lot more dry and it have a suprisingly bitterness in the finish for this style of beer. A little to boozy in the taste and mouthfeel I think. Decent enough beer but it never get very exiting.

O: all Inn all a decent bock, but it far better bocks and doppelbock out there. I don't think I will buy this again, since it was not that exiting.

Rough pour led to thick airy head, thinning to small rocky beige head. Color is cola, lots of lacing on the glass.Aroma is nutty, caramel, malt.Soft, slick mouth feel. Taste is smooth and mildly sweet, dark bread, caramel, very mild bitterness. Don’t be fooled by the drinkabliity, this has a fairly high ABV%.
