3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Served in a thistle-shaped glass at the brewpub, dark brown and a little muddy with a huge creamy tan head.
Aroma after warming is classic bock - blended melanoidin malts with a toasty complexity, and the flavour follows suit. Its fairly clean with a mild but noticable bitterness that just lingers slightly.
The carbonation is a tad low and the body is light-medium, so the mouthfeel was a bit watery, the only slight disappointment in this otherwise very easy to drink beer. Alcohol is well hidden.
(The beer seemed young - shame it’s not likely to get a chance to age as it would improve nicely)

Sampled @ Bekeerde Suster. Hazy amber color, medium sized beige to light brown head. Smell and taste malts, leaves, a hint of raisins, brown sugar, some caramel and a bit sweet. Average body and carbonation. Meh.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Served way too cold. Deep brown almost black with a sticky, thick, lasting, frothy, covers the glass head. Smells of raisins, grass, caramel and soft coffee roast. Medium frothy, oily body. Tastes of liquorish, caramel, raisins, and deep malt. Some brown sugar. A decent bock and probably their best beer.

Standard bock beer. They don’t seem to have put a lot of effort in this one.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Like the name. Glowing brown body and stable light tan head. Dark malts, nutty, some very light smoke. Pretty smooth sticky dark sugars and a roast background. Very decent, better than expected. Served too cold unfortunately. (On tap at PINT Bokbierfestival)

Had this beer at the Beiaard Beer Cafe in Hoorn (10/18/2011) A typical herfst bok, though lacking depth in the usual caramelly sweetness.
