21st Oct 2012: Cafe De Grendelpoort in Valkenburg, on-tap, along with a host of others in a ’Bok Fest’. Pours a dark brown colour which isn’t mirky but it isn’t clear either. On top a thin layer of white foam. The aroma was of over roasted malty molasses and yeastiness. The yeast and sweetness from the molasses carried on into the taste nicely. There was also a distinct liquorice finish to this brew, so much so I had to have another to make sure! Very pleasant and tasty, body strength good and well carbonated.

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 (18) - 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.

ZodiacM (85) - 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.

psilosophy (497) - vitry en artois, FRANCE - AUG 31, 2014
Bouteille de 75cl. Couleur marron opaque, mouse moyenne, de tenue assez faible. Arômes torréfiés, pas vraiment identifiés car elle accompagnait ( assez maladroitement ) un repas, rien de transcendant en tous cas. Trouvée à Roby - Menin.
