Poured from 11.2oz bottle into glass. Date stamped on label is '17.087'.
Brown colored body, with reddish highlights when presented to light. Creamy, off white head settles to interrupted cap. Spots of lacing settle back into glass. Some settled particles at bottom of glass.
Aroma is sweet, boozy, dark fruit.
Taste is rich with candied sugars, alcohol, and dark fruit. Very tasty.
Heavy, and with syrup, mouth feel. Somewhat numbing from the higher alcohol.
This really tastes like a concentrated beer, with much packed into each sip. Allow to warm a bit, which brings out more flavors.

Nice on the nose. Great mouth feel. Big head initially disapates to leave little foam. A Little Tanginess on the finish.

This is one of the best beers I've had in awhile. Maybe its just because this is a bock beer and most of what I've had here lately have been ales. Maybe its because I'm in Korea where the domestic beer market leaves a lot to be desired. Really though the beer has an excellent mouth feel. An appreciable amount of carbonation, easily twice what I see with an IPA. This is of course a Lager beer and not an ale beer. I sampled this at the local bottle shop and it wasn't real cold. To be honest I got more of the flavor when it was a few degrees warmer. I'm happy that I spent the money on two of these. It's over all a great change of pace for me.
