MartinKubert (862) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - NOV 8, 2004
Really sweet and alcoholic. Some straw and unpleasant sharpness. Disgusting and sour. Not much flavour, though. Some caramel.

dirkbreedveld (288) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2004
This is a nice soft flavoured bokbeer. Nice brown-red color. Nice foamy head. Very malty smell, taste aswell. Subtle use of bitters, not to sweet, and that is just the way i like it.

UPDATED: DEC 17, 2010 After the beer was served in the glass there was found a lasting quantity wall adhesive white foam collar which was fine and even of structure. The beer also contained much carbonic acid in the glass. The beer has a clear redbrown color and a sweet taste. The after tast of the beer is hoppy bitter with a caramally touch . This beer smells musty.

caesar (5201) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2002
Rerate 2002: Weaker than last year. Still the smooth palate, but it has become a more average bock. Original rate: 4. One of the better bocks i have to say. Smells very good, bocky. Dark brown appearance. Sweetness, hops, typical bock brew. But overall everything a good bock needs is present.

bierkoning (10377) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 1, 2002
Malty aroma with peach and caramel. Sweetish taste with caramel, apple and licorice. The flavor is good, but I miss character in this beer. It goes down well without making an impression.
