   AROMA 7/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 7/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 13/20
caesar (5131) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2013 2013: thought it would be time to rerate :-). Bottled, large sample. Clear amber color, short frothy off-white head. Aroma is light fruity, bit toasted malts, caramel. Bit bitter, quite sweet actually, but not bad to be honest. Caramel touch is pretty nice, but it still is not an impressive bock. Bit boring. Upping the score, because the aroma aint that bad 4-->7. 2002-rate: Clear red brown color. Sharp malty aroma, chemical. Malty taste. Small bitterness in the palate. Not an impressive bock. 3.0 2001-rate: Very clear red-brownish color. Brand is usually a bitter beer, but this dubbelbock didnít have that typical Brand taste, what is kind of a pity. I wasnít astonished by itís great taste i can say. 3.2

skortila (4516) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2002
Aroma is off. Sweet, chocolate, but a bit like chemicals. Ambercoloured, quite fast dying head. The beer scores on taste; sweet (chocolate) and malty, then more bitter. Palate is bitter and a bit alcoholic.

bierkoning (10210) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2002
UPDATED: SEP 25, 2005 Aroma has malt, caramel and tropical fruit. Sweet taste with some roasted malt. In spite of the sweetness hopbitter and herbal. Full bodied. Very well made firm bockbeer. Re-rate version 2005: bottle: Brown colored, just a bit lighter as expected (and remembered) Malty aroma with milk chocolate. Malty sweet flavor with roasted malt, caramel and hints of cherry. Milk chocolate again. Medium bodied. Not very complex, but quite enjoyable.
