brokensail (10935) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 3, 2012
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.

33 cl. bottle. Thanks Henrik. Pours reddish brown with a decent tan head. Aroma of fruit, malt, and spice. Taste is malt, fruit, spice, grain, and caramel. Pretty good.

A middling bock. Sweet and of average mouthfeel. Caramel and toffee, though with a somewhat dry finish.

Alengrin (1735) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
One of those rare Belgian attempts at making a Dutch-style top-fermented bock, since 2010. Loose, off-white head, colour a bronze brown, clear. Caramelly and nutty aroma with hints of apple, cinnamon and liquorice, taste a bit of malt sweetishness, dried fruits and lightly hoppy tail, smooth mouthfeel. Too ’clean’ for me.

Leuk flesje, spijtig genoeg is de smaak niet navenant. Een teleurstelling voor mij.

Cunningham (4498) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 6, 2014
Appearance: Deep nutty color with a big white head that leaves a fine lacing.
Aroma: Fruity, caramel malty and some mild spices.
Palate: Medium + body. Mild round sweetness and a moderate bitterness. Also some pleasant acidic notes. Average carbonation.
Taste: Fruity, toffee, malty and some spices.
Overall impression: A mild pleasant round sweetness as it got warmer. Not so pleasant when it was a bit to cold.
Personal stats: Bottle from Miranda.

flip_soeperman (610) - NETHERLANDS - APR 25, 2014
Yellow hazy beer with aroma of yeast and bread. Beer is slightly dusty and nothing too special. Sweeter than Bruges zot. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Swaroga (1342) - Brussels, BELGIUM - APR 1, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo ma kolor brązu z odcieniem czerwieni. Piana jest wielka i jasnobeżowa. NOS : aromaty przypominające karmel, toffi, alkohol, piernik, rozpuszczalnik, kandyzowane owoce, limonka. USTA : piwo jest mocno gazowane i średnio nasycone. Umiarkowanie słodkie jak na styl piwa. Dosyć kwaśne o wyraźnej goryczy na końcu. Słodkie nuty przypominają wspomniany piernik ale trzeba sobie go wyobrazić mało słodkiego. Kwaśność przypomina syrop na kaszel, anyż i razem z alkoholem mocno podkreśla końcową gorzkość. Posmak jest jak przypalony czarny chleb. ODCZUCIA : dziwne piwo. Afiszuje się jako Bokbier ale do tradycyjnego Boka czy Bocka ma sporo. Mocny charakter drożdżowy o silnych estrach przybliża go bardziej do stylu piw belgijskich. Nic niesamowitego ale ciesze się, że zostało go jeszcze w butelce. OCENA : smak : 6/10 pijalność : 6/10

goozen (2941) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 28, 2014
Bottle 0,33ltr: Hazy dark brown coloured with an light bitter taste and some hints of caramel. Not as sweet like an Dutch Bokbier, but this Belgian variant will do the trick.
