2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Dark amber pour with an off-white head. Metallic, roasted malt, and a bit of toast on the nose. Some hints of chocolate, light fruit, and some cola. The flavor is incredibly metallic. Plenty of roasted malt, a bit of chocolate, and a fairly sweet toffee maltiness. Some hints of dark fruit, a bit of cola, and a light sourness. Really not very good.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Pours clear copper brown with profuse, rocky but stable off-white head. Clear aroma of fruit, malt and hops, with estery touches. Sweetish, fruity and malty flavour, with bitter hoppy notes and touches of caramel and yeast. Sweet-sourish aftertaste. Low carbonation. An acceptable imitation of the Bock but rather watery and not very impressive.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle 33cl. Red brown with a huge creme coloured head. Aroma has hops but is not very special. Taste is nice, but here the bitterness is up front too. Some alcohol is in there too. Not bad, but not really bok beer.

Doesn’t smell like anything really, maybe a slight sweetness. The taste is really muffled and one-dimensional.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ the local Plus supermarket.
Red brown with an off-white head. Caramel aroma and sweet taste.
Not a real bok, just an attempt to profit from the bok tradition. That’s fine with me but this is just plain boring beer.

2.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Nice beer but not really special and definitly not a bock beer. Missing some sweetness and warmth, still a ok beer.

Een prima biertje, maar geen echt bok biertje. Hij is wat waterig en mist die typische bokbier smaak
