Crosling (1864) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - APR 14, 2009
Pros: Well extracted malt aroma, hinting of chocolate, brown sugar and roast. Great color. Finishes well. Nice balance and malt complexity. Lots of taste. A lot to like here.

Cons: Such a beautiful beer, but perhaps a touch sweet and way too thin in the mouth.

Alengrin (4065) - BELGIUM - MAR 26, 2016
The new embodiment of this Dutch, bottom-fermented and therefore more or less German-inspired Doppelbock, with different bottle, different label and even slightly different name (spelled Bock instead of Bok now). Thick, ’papery’ lacing, pale greyish beige head, densely structured and stable, over a clear deep burgundy coloured beer with wine red hue. Aroma of caramelized brown sugar, butterscotch, coffee powder, roasted hazelnuts, dried banana, strong ’haemoglobin’ iron, hints of nutmeg, parsley, toasted vegetables, dried porcini, chestnut, cherry candy, old cloth and some dusty dry earth, black pepper. Candied brown sugar sweetness in the onset as well as raisin, banana and fig accents, rounded but well-dosed and not cloying, as it is being balanced by underlying sourishness and a slight mushroom-like umami flavor; softish carbonation, thick but smooth, slick body. Full caramelly and heavily toasted maltiness in the middle, more toastedly bitter than sweet and even a bit coffeeish and roasted in the end, mouth-filling, leading to a full-fledged malty, roasted and toasted bittersweet finish with some earthy, spicy hops made subordinate to the toasted malts; the caramelized or ’burnt’ sugar sweetness persists too (almost a touch candy-ish even) and matches well with this malt bitterness, and a strong, but fortunately not too astringent presence of brown rum-like alcohol is undeniable. Warming Dutch Doppelbock, pleasant enough and definitely one for the malt heads; the toasted bitterness is however much stronger in this one than in your average German style, bottom-fermented Doppelbock, but that makes this beer all the more interesting. Enjoyed it.

330ml bottle (thanks FatPhil). Clear brown color. Small size, beige head, disappears. Sweet, caramel, tea leaves, bit fruity in aroma. Coffee, caramel, roasted malts, sweet in taste. Burnt plastic in burps. Sweet malty aftertaste.

330ml bottle - thanks courier Stephan!
Lovely rich malty aroma, pleasant, but some slightly medicinal aspects. Rich brown, small persistent head. sweetish full palate. Totally grain oriented, but Tongue-scrapingly bitter finish, but I like that.

Ben normaal geen fan van bock maar deze is zeer geslaagd. Redelijk zoet, wat caramel en koffie en een licht frisse nasmaak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dit bokbier is donkerbruin van kleur en heeft een lichte crèmekleurige schuimlaag. De smaak is die van toast en kandijsuiker/karamel met met bosvruchten. Erg geslaagd bokbier.
