30cl bottle @ home. Reddish brown clear sparkling, beige head. Aroma caramel, slightly smokey, malty. Taste light to medium sweetness, medium bitterness, light sour. Lively carbon, average bitter finish. not bad, but not very exciting.

alethol (106) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2013
Dark red-brown. Aromas of malt and caramel. Nice and smooth with sweetnees nicely balanced with bitterness. Misses the fullness and creamyness of the great (dubbel) bocks.

Idiosynkrasie (4085) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - NOV 2, 2013
300ml bottle. Clear reddish dark amber colour with small to average, frothy, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, beige head. Sweetish malty aroma, hints of rock sugar, malt lozenge, caramel. Taste is moderately sweet malty, hints of malt lozenge, caramel, a touch of burnt caramel, cautious dry hoppy overtones.

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2013
A nice, dark, clear ruby-red beer with a firm, dark, brown layer of foam. It has a nice sweet, caramel-like aroma. It also tastes sweet and licorice like, with the touch of alcohol. It finishes with a subtile bitter aftertaste. Een mooi, donker, helder robijnrood bier met een stevige bruine kraag. Heerlijk zoetig, karamel achtig aroma. Ook de smaak is zoet en dorpachtig. De toetsen van alcohol komen dan ook naar boven. Het bier sluit af met een subtiel bittere nasmaak.

ChrisSc (249) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2013
25cl en pression with proper glass. Amsterdam. Appearance: Amber copper creamy off white head fairly clear. Aroma: Not a lot standing out. Roasted barley. Cellar notes. paper. Taste: Sweet with a weak flavor bitter. Palate: thin. Normal carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Overall: I was hoping for much more from a dubbel bock this lacked flavor and texture.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2014 Pours a dark amber with an off-white head. Aroma of caramel, nuts, roasted malts, dark fruits. One of the better ’macro’ bock brews.

Sterke smaak van een soort rokerige stroop. Wel sterk van smaak, maar die vind ik niet zo.
