Papsoe (25069) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 16, 2005
(Bottle 75 cl) Dark reddish with a lovely, rich head. Spiced sweetness with a discreet, hoppy finish. Malty and full-bodied, some overripe fruit in there too. Interesting and quite unusual as Bocks are terribly rare in Belgium. The back label contains a weird story about flying goats over The Niagara Falls - don’t ask me any further... According to the label this is 6,666% ABV 181297

oh6gdx (23682) - Vasa, FINLAND - DEC 7, 2008
Bottled. Thanks jbrus!. Reddish amber colour, beige creamy big head. Aroma is caramel, some mild alcohol, hops and yeast. Flavour is the same along with quite strong notes of juniper. Close to normal Chouffe in many ways, but this one has a bit more complexity in my opinion.

omhper (21891) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 2, 2006
[Bottled, thanks BierKönig!. Rating #6666] Muddy reddish brown. Lightly lactic with dusty cherries and coffee up front. Medium sweet with medium body and rounded mouthfeel. There’s toffee and red berries, but the dustiness is so severe it feels like licking the inside of a vacuum cleaner. A beer with many positive features and some obvious drawbacks.

fiulijn (16924) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 20, 2002
UPDATED: JUL 3, 2003 Cloudy dark amber color. Nice malt aroma and body, with some liquorice; really harmonious, smoother flavor than Mc Chouffe, and a nice, light aftertaste of Fernet Branca.

TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 18, 2008
Bottled 75 cl BB 08/2011. Clear dark amber color, small off-white head. Fruity-hoppy aroma. Achouffe-like hayish fruity hoppy flavor but with added caramel malts. Sweetish, sweeter than rest of Achouffe line. Nice bock, another good one from this top brewery.

MiP (14562) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JAN 2, 2009
Bottle, 6.66%. Weak malty and yeasty aroma. Clear dark amber colour. Big stable tan head. The flavour has some rough bitterness and graininess. There is also some yeast. Good maltiness. Quite citric, a bit like too much aroma hop was used.

Koelschtrinker (14112) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 30, 2011
Der Antrunk ist weich und mit gewürzigen und etwas trockenen hellen Malznoten, die sich im Mittelteil stärker zusammenfinden und ein angenehmes und gleichmäßiges Aroma ergeben, das aber problemlos noch stärker sein könnte. Das Bier wird zwar noch ein wenig intensiver, kann damit aber nicht überzeugen. Zudem zieht die Trockenheit die Vollmundigkeit herunter. So ist das Bier auf Dauer eintönig und wird zum Ende langweilig. Es folgt ein malzbetonter muffiger Abgang. 10/8/8/8/11/8
