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.

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.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
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!
