Drinking this beer reminds me of the Standells song, “Dirty Water,” “Oh I love that dirty water…” featuring the fabulous line, “I’d like to say time for my baby to walk around…” anyway, this IS like drinking muddy water, as the golden brown color is very cloudy and dirty looking, with a malty perfumed aroma, a beer that by all accounts is subtle and complex, slightly sweet, slightly fruity, perhaps a dried fruit, like apple, raisin or prune, a unique bock flavor which I liked better initially, but not so much with each successive sip, ends with a kind of dry coffee finish.

Icedwarf (397) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2014
Zwart bier met schuim. Smaak is licht bitter met sporen van chokolade en caramel. Helaas wat waterig.

RW80 (710) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2014
33 cl bottle. Appearance:Dark ruby with a small beige head. Aroma: Caramel and cookies.vegetal hops. Taste: Quite thin, Sweet malt, brown sugar, low bitterness, a bit sugarry water with alcohol. Except it’s thicker. Thin- Medium body, average carbonation. Dissapointing compared to the other Brasserie d’Achouffe brews.

Drank during tasting in Molenhoek with Rik, Bram, tijs, thierry, and Lennart. Beer has not very much taste. Dark beer. Very easily drinkable but not special.

33 cl bottle. Pours a dark ruby with a small biege head. Aroma is mocha and cookies. Sweetish malt, brown sugar, low bitterness and light fruitiness. Medium bodied, effervescent, slightly alcoholic and not too interesting. OK..

TtV (115) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Deep brown, almost black with a medium light brown head. Aroma has malts and sweetness. Taste is very refreshing. No overpowering sweetness or bitterness. Just right. One of the better bock beers this year.

sebletitje (6859) - 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.

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 (701) - 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.
