UPDATED: AUG 26, 2007 Rerate: After at least 2 more tries (i still got one aging right now), this bock has finally got it right! It’s not a beer to drink as a starter, but later in the evening the sweet caramelly malts and the complex fruity flavors come out the best. I can only say: Deliciousssss! Original rating: Finally a good winter-brew that doesn’t taste to alcohol (a lot). I can’t add anything to the descriptions already given: coffee? chocolate? whatever...

Superbe couleur brune claire, légèrement trouble, surmontée d’une mousse épaisse légèrement ocre, à bulles fines et persistante. Au nez, une explosion de saveurs : le miel bien sûr, mais aussi le sirop d’érable, le pain d’épice, des malts gourmands, le chocolat chaud, la châtaigne, le pain viennois, la coriandre, la figue, le pruneau, la mirabelle, le muscat, le caramel... Nez superbe et d’une gourmandise absolue ! La bouche est plus sobre mais ronde et soyeuse, huileuse, liquoreuse et moins sucrée qu’attendu. L’alcool est bien équilibré, les houblons très discrets, la carbonatation est assez faible. Après plusieurs gorgées, on sent le cuir, une odeur végétale et terreuse assez savoureuse sur fond de miel de châtaigne, présent tout du long. Bouche moins impressionnante que le nez qui lui est stable au fur et à mesure de la dégustation, mais vraiment savoureuse. Elle reste longue en bouche, avec ce miel qui tapisse généreusement le palet. Une véritable bière de dégustation idéale pour l’apéritif ou le dessert, préférentiellement autour d’une bonne table avec un bon feu d’hiver ! Bouteille 33cl, V&B Grenoble.

mooi donker biertje met een lekkere honing smaak en een kruidige afdronk. Het oog heeft ook wat met de mooie fles en het mooie glas

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2012 Bottled on numerous occasions. Very dark brown colored, big off-white head. Very complex malty nose, dark fruit, honey, some liquorice. Smooth malty flavor, lots of complexity again, predominantly sweet but with just enough bitterness to compensate. Almost velvety mouthfeel. Very, very good brew.

UPDATED: MAY 22, 2014 Bottle @ Post Office Vaults, Birmingham. Served in hazy glass so the blackness and the beige head can only be approximated. Smell of fresh vanilla, burnt caramel, bitter chocolate and oak chips. The alcohol is obvious from the aroma. A glorious full molasses and clove sweetness greets the lips on the first sip. Full, syrupy palette, with the tickle of the carbonation like forepIay before the final carnal swallow. I don’t get so much honey from this, but I love it all the same.

Brown one, bottle of 33cl. TEH Christmas spiced honey beer. One of the greatest, nothing more to say. I personnally don’t like it much cause of her strong taste, but cold it must be a great surprise. Cheers !

Robe brune, légèrement ambrée. Mousse bien. Le miel domine, mais on sent aussi des saveurs de fruits noirs, pruneau, biscuit et levure. Légèrement sèche en bouche. Longue en bouche. Texture épaisse et carbonatation très fine: super texture. Une excellente bok.

A dark-red coloured bock with subtle honey, fruity aromas and caramel taste. Thick body with brownish head and a slightly bitter-sweet aftertaste. I would definitely recommend this this beer to bock enthusiasts.
