The Dutch make better bocks it seems. Not a lot of flavor, not a lot of anything really. at the Woerden Bockbeerfestival.

Another attempt at popularizing Bock beers in Belgium, a style practically unknown here - call me cynical, but I don’t see the point in this. Anyway: medium, lacing, crackling, off-white head, reasonably stable, over a hazy brownish coppery coloured beer. Aroma of industrial caramel, biscuit, tons of iron, dish water, raisins, dates, weeds, overripe (if not rotting) pear, medlar, brown sugar, pancakes with powder sugar, cocoa, hint of liquorice. Sweetish, fruity, estery onset, some overripe fruits, some candi sugar sweetness, fairly strong and sourish carbonation, very caramelly in the malt department, a bit nutty, outspoken metallic ’sound’ reflecting the iron in the nose, medium body, notably yeasty, finishing in fading caramel malt sweetness along with a certain, yet subtle earthy hop bitterishness, boring yeastiness and a basic sourishness, medium dry, a bit cloying but not overly so; a faint hint of warming, generic alcohol is also present. Something, however subtle, went wrong with its fermentation, that much is clear, and I wonder where all the iron comes from; this is a bit of a disappointment compared with his other beers. Being Flemish, I get the intended pun in the name (and the 6.6% ABV), but that is more or less where the enjoyment stops, I’m afraid. Acceptable alright, but obviously redundant. Concentrate on the Double Port and Double Espresso, Johan, and do not waiste any further time, money and effort on this!

erickok (5397) - Leuven, BELGIUM - DEC 27, 2014
Sweet sticky fruit, brown sugar, red berries and gluhwein. Simple but satisfying. Taste is more watery than hoped and not as thick as a good bock is for me personally. It’s okay. (On tap at Lotus Publicus)

jmgreenuk (7674) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - DEC 17, 2014
Tap at Het Brouwcafe, Scheveningen. Poured a muky brown colour with a frothy light tan head. The aroma is earthy mineral malt, light yeast. The flavour is moderate to light sweet with a light malt bitter, light ripe fruit yeasty palate with average carbonation. A little light all round I’m afraid.
