Bought a bottle at the AH. The beer has a dark amber color and large and cream colored head, CO2 level is excellent. In the aroma tones of fruits and caramel. The taste is like the aroma and a little sweet. The finish is nice and has a light bitter. A pretty standard bock, not bad, but definitely not the best one.

30cl bottle at home. Clear amber/brown with a medium white head. Light body with high carbonation. Starts sweet with a bitter finish. Caramel, dark fruits and malts. A very pilsnerish bock, and I mean that in a good way.

Very sweet bockbeer. Typical roasted malt and notes of liquorice. I don’t really like it.

Clear darker ruby color with off white foam head. Aroma is weak, malty and light caramel. Taste is slightly bittersweet with tones of caramel, bit watery. Short aftertaste. (Velp 201211)

Very pale and not so tasty bock beer. It drinks like water. Of the big dutch brabds this must be one of the worst.

thanatosti (961) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2012
30 .cl bottle @ home, bought @ Albert Heijn. Clear ruby brown with a thin off-white head. A bit of a swampy aroma with some malts, not really that good. Taste is soft, unoffensive and a bit boring. Some roasted malts, some hops but nothing exciting. Bit of a letdown because I highly appreciate their pilsener.

ogreface (1345) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 18, 2012
Világosabb árnyalatú, vörösesbarna színnel rendelkezik, amin csak egy vékony hablepedő fekszik. Egészen édeskés kandiscukros, aszalt gyümölcsös, fűszeres illata van, mint valami karácsonyi italnak. Ezeket hozza az íze is, valami kis gumicukros beütés is. Közepesen testes és nem túl szénsavas sör, aminek az utóíze keserédes és kissé cukros. Nem rossz bak sör, de teljesen más világ, mint például a német unokatestvérei.

Vaiz (3533) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2012
Bottle at home. Clear amber pour, thin off-white head. Aroma is sugary malty, slightly spicy, grainy and a bit roasted. Flavor is very sweet and decently spiced. A bit dusty and with some cardboard. Slightly alcoholic. Intense, but out of balance.
