I expected a sweet bockbeer, but this one is bonedry, and i loved it. Huge creamy head. Complex taste and nose, almost like a rochefort 8. Long lingering finish of fruits and raisins. Very tasty. On tap at the brewery.

Borresteijn (6499) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - FEB 4, 2011
75cl Bottle from De Bierkoning. Deep dark brown colour, big creamy pillowed off white head that lasts, looks very inviting. Aroma of chocolate, alcohol, dark fruits, light roasted malts. Flavour is light sweet, dark fruits, plain and milk chocolate, roasted malts, hint of coffee, alcohol, some flowery notes which are a bit lavender-like, hints of nutmeg and clove, bitter alcohol finish. Fullbodied, soft mouthfeel, just a touch too much alcohol imo, but very tasty.
