3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a clear red/brown colour with great carbonation and a smll size head.
Smell is almost the same of that of the "oud bruin" beer, but more intense and less sweet.
Taste is also similar to the "oud bruin" but less sweet again and more hoppy and fruity, also raisins in the taste.
Can taste a hint of the alcohol going down, but not too much.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Bottled) Clear red-amber with a medium, slightly tanned head. Sweetish and somewhat alcoholic aroma with lots of caramel. Vegetably-caramely-malty, slightly stingy flavor with some buttery diacetyl, hints of chocolate, and low bitterness. Medium body, soft carbonation. Another (although slightly stronger) example of the Dutch bock style, the popularity of which I cannot quite understand.

Dark brown beer with a red hue, off-white head. Aroma is roasted malts, brown sugar, caramel. Flavour is bitter roasted malts, brown sugar and a nice bitter finish. Some chocolate. 2006 version was more fullbodied and more tasteful than the 2007 version. Overall a good bock.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Itís a nice red amber colored beer with an OK head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, sweetness, caramel, hints of candy sugar and alcohol. The flavour is sweetish with notes of roasted malt, caramel, candy sugar a touch of fruit and alcohol. Itís not my style of beer as such, but itís OK.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
(33cl bottle) Clear, bright ruby colour with a medium-sized, slowly lacing, light-beige foamy head. Sweet toast-malty, melanoidinic nose with caramel, liquorice and subtle fruity notes. Sweet, slightly sugary flavour, full bodied with a pleasantly soft carbonation. Toasty malty taste with caramel; sweet but not sticky malty and molassy finish with a light alcoholic burn. Way better than expected.
