Bottle brought from Belgium by a colleague at work... This was a mild bock - drinkable, but forgettable...

sebletitje (6830) - Enghien, BELGIUM - OCT 29, 2014
Bouteille 75cl de Geers, shared with Tomaz. BB 09/2014. Ambrée, col épais crémeux blanc-cassé. Arôme est fruité noir, malt cara, crystal et pâle. Petit rétro houblonné ajoutant une légère note d’amertume et fleuri. Palais de malts cara, pils, pâle, fruité noir rappelant les dates et raisins. Sucre candi, malt crystal pour une petite rondeur en fin de bouche. Assez basique et un cran en dessous de ce que les allemands proposent. Houblon perce en fin de bouche ajoutant une note noble typique de fruité et fleuri sans vraiment prendre le dessus.

Franksv6 (222) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2014
Clear dark brown beer with a beige head that quickly disappears. Taste is watery, low bitterness and light fruitiness. No good bock, taste is too watery.

beerandbeyond (695) - ISRAEL - OCT 13, 2014
330ml bottle purchased at the brewery and poured into a tulip glass. Clear deep mahogany with nice red hues and a rocky beige head. Malty nose, with some caramel, vegetal hops and cookies. Sweetish malt, brown sugar, low bitterness and light fruitiness. Medium bodied, effervescent, slightly alcoholic and not too interesting. OK.

JLDC (72) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
Colour: Ruby red. Medium brown head. Nose: herbs, coffee, caramel. Notes of roasted malts and dark chocolate. Flavours: spices, hoppy bitterness. Hints of cough syrup and bread. Finish: medium long. Gives warmth in cold winter days. Verdict: well made winter beer, but not quite on par with the outstanding La Trappe Bock.

Boomkweket (20) - Boskoop, NETHERLANDS - SEP 29, 2014
Thuis - 24-9-2014, fles. Een wat vlakkig aroma van een mooi verschijnend biertje. Goede schuimkraag op een mooie robijnrode kleur. Ergens zit er wat van een plasticgeur die ook in de smaak terugkomt. Verder doet het biertje wat waterig aan.

Hansen (6791) - Assentoft, DENMARK - SEP 24, 2014
Amber coloured and clear. Has an off-white head, medium duration. Sweet caramel. Sweet malty, faint chocolate.

ZodiacM (103) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 23, 2014
Donkerrood bier met een cremekleurige schuimkraag. Een wat lichte mout en caramel geur, smaak is vlak, kan weinig smaken herkennen, wat mout, gedroogd fruit. Een tegenvallende bok, misschien moeten Belgen zich niet wagen aan bokbier.
