From the unique Engel bottle, it pours a darker coppery amber with a small head, fading to a ring and a large island. A lot of malt in the nose and mouth. Enjoyable.

500ml bottle served in a snifter.

A: Pours a clear dark amber forming a medium light beige and thin bubbled head. Medium retention and many lacings left

S: Extremely grainy. Caramel malts are very evident. A bit fruity. Very bready Lager-like yeasts. Roasted malts, honey and some flowery hops

T: Follows the nose, sweet caramel malts in upfront. Strong notes of honey. Toffee, roasted malts. Very bready too. Lager style bready yeasts. Flowery hops. Slightly hoppy bitter end

M: Medium and bit molasses body. Medium carbonation. Bittersweet aftertaste

O: Good drinkability. Classic German Bock. Recommended

This beer comes in a 50 cl short-necked brown bottle with a screw-cork (you can rescrew it IF you want to). The label's got a picture of a goat with a small keg - the alps in the background - kind of funny.

A: The pour is deep warm copper with mediumlarge off-white a bit soapy head that slowly dissipates leaving some lacings.

S: Light roasted dry chocolate malt, faint bitter hops. Some dark dried fruits in it as well. A chemical tone, that brings down the grade a bit. Very faint coffee.

T: Rich chocolate malt. Bready and also fruity, mostly dark dried fruit (raisins). A light roasted tone to the malt. Marzipan.

M: Full body and medium carbonated with really small bubbles. The aftertaste is surprisingly light with a unbalanced dryness, but there is marzipan in the aftertaste - first time ever I senced that.

D: This is a Bock that the brewer calls Dunkel Bock (Dark Bock). And the main reason for trying this beer should be that your intrested in trying a Dark Bock. There are lots of better Bocks but this isn't bad.
