Ober (2811) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2008
Draught at the brewerypub. A clear amber colored beer, with a thick beige head. The aroma of caramel malt, with spices and hops. The taste is hopbitter, with notes of chocolate, malty and in the back some caramel. The aftertaste light bitter. When the beer is getting warmer, there are notes of porto.

BartC (726) - Lichtaart, BELGIUM - SEP 15, 2008
If I look to the picture on ratebeer, I think they restyled the label. Looking to the previous ratings, the beer is still the same. Amber colored beer. Spicy aroma and tastes. Dry and bitter end. Not bad.

Borresteijn (4781) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 7, 2008
On tap @ De Geuzen, autumn 2007. Orange/amber colour, white head. Nose is malts, yeast and spice. Taste is disappointing, more like an amber beer than a bock. Metallic, toffee, malty sweet. Soft mouthfeel. Expected a lot more from this.

ogivlado (5791) - Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 11, 2007
On tap at Bier Cafe Het Elfde Gebod.
Dark reddish/brown coloured, medium sized head, malty nose. The aroma is malty and slight hoppy with weak fruity and toffee notes. Metallic finish. Quite disappointing beer.

swoopjones (5987) - Buffalo, New York, USA - SEP 29, 2007
On tap @ Gollem, Amsterdam. Orangish color. Caramel, toffee. Almost Deadguy like. Creamy mouth & wel done. Never heard of this one before this

thewolf (11191) - Kolding, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2007
Tap @ In die Blauwe Hand, Nijmegen. Pours a very clear orange amber with a small creamy off white head. It has an incredibly amount of lacing. Sweet aroma with a light touch of caramel - perhaps even toffee. Round and well-balanced mouthfeel - quite high in carbonation, making the beer fresh and accesible. Lots of caramel flavours dominate, sweetness, peppery bitterness and a general fullness in palate. Great brew!

goozen (2991) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - SEP 12, 2007
This one is back in bussiness from tap at the Bonte Koe, Leiden: Amber looking Bock from the Ardennes a roasty raste with some caramel hints. Mine first Bock for the season.
