Bottle at home. Spicy tasting bock. Decent head. Ruby colored. Hides alcohol well. Sweet tasting, goes down very well.

madsberg (9651) - Søborg, DENMARK - DEC 22, 2005
Bottled: Amber coloured. Clear. Off white dense head. Malt, fruit and berries in the aroma. IS quite sweet. Flavour is malty, sweet and fruity with light notes of alcohol. Is medium bodied. The fruitsweetness lasts into the end. Easy to drink and a little too vague in the aromas/flavours for my likings.

NoiZe (2324) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - DEC 16, 2005
Appearance is dark brown. Like the Alfa pilsener, it’s a fresh, balanced taste but then a bock. Very nice palate, malty. Overal one of the better bock’s to drink a lot of and still end up without a headache.

bikesandbeers (547) - san diego, California, USA - NOV 27, 2005
30cl bottle. translucent brown with a nice beige head. Slighlty sweet aroma and flavor. Fairly simple. pretty standard for a dutch bock.

MoritzF (8250) - Bochum, GERMANY - OCT 23, 2005
(bottle) Clear reddish brown/mahogany colour with a firm and foamy off-white medium head. Medium sweet malty, cake dough aroma. Medium sweet flavour, medium bodied and moderately carbonated. Malty taste with a touch of chestnuts and liquorice, bittersweet and quite lasting finish. Well balanced Bock.

Quinten (1037) - zaandam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 11, 2005
not bad, but not the best. tin flavor,..to bitter not a warm aftertaste. Do it is one of the only bock you can drink all evening.

JanPrimus1982 (48) - Delft, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2005
Amber colored, not very strong aroma. Little sweet flavor. All by all nice beer.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2005
(Bottle 30 cl) Reddish brown with a thick, brownish head. Sweetish with notes of slightly burned, slightly smoked malts - but never cloyingly sweet. Very full and harmonious. Typically Dutch Bock - nice indeed but perhaps it lacks just a touch of personality. 010104

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - MAY 24, 2005
(on bottle)Amber colour, with odd hairy thing floating around in it. Smoooth caramel taste; dades, and raisins too. Sticky in the finish, very "dutch-bok"beer and very high swill-factor on this brew.

Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JAN 6, 2005
Very sweet, reddish coloured Bock. Some caramel, some fruits. Quite nice. A Bock for beginners.
