Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

Very nice. The last one of 7 seasonal Dutch bocks I got at my supermarket and one of the best. La Trappe and Jopen are less general available and maybe more original. This one by a Heineken subsidiary is quite good. Not too sweet, well balanced, just enough roasted malts, nice bitter hops, some licorice and a long dry bitter finish. Good to know that large scale brewers can produce such a good brew.

At the Dutch Bockbeer Festival in Amsterdam, this beer was awarded best Bock Beer 2014. And itís truely a very good beer and a true Bock. The taste is complex - astonishing for a big brewing company. Sure, there are Bockís I like more - but thatís my personnal taste. This beer is good - point.

33 cl. Pours a ruby red with no head. Aroma of espresso and chocolate. Taste is slightly bitter and hoppy. Palate is flat and would benefit from more carbonation. Overall good beer.

Bottle 30cl. Deep brown, reddish with a tiny off white head. Sweet aromas with some hops. Taste is not very complex, but easily drinkable. Bitterness wins over sweetness.

Mooie donkere herfst bock kleur, de geur is ook uitnodigend. Smaak valt tegen, niet het typische zoete karakter wat een herfst bock altijd heeft, en een hoop bitter.

A slighty bitter bockbier with an absence of sweetness. For a big brewery I think it is a reasonble tasty beer.
