Bottle. Brown with pale brown head. Aroma nutty with malts and some hopps. Taste quite hoppy for a bock with malt underneath and a little hopp in the finish. By my opinion there are too much hopp for a bock in this beer.

UPDATED: AUG 30, 2009 On tap at the European Beer Festival, Copenhagen. An orange-golden beer, hazy, with a nice beige head. Pleasant sweetish nose with malts, caramel and a fruity touch. The flavor has sweetness and fruityness in a fine blend, but is mostly on the sweet side. Full-bodied, with a long, sweet finish. A good bock from the Netherlands. Rating: 7-4-7-4-14-3.6. ?)

Bottle, 33cl. An almost clear, copper colored beer with a creamy, beige head. Caramel nose with some chocolate and bready notes. Sweet, yet dryish flavor with roasted malts and some chocolate. Full body. The finish is dry and roasted, with some caramel. A nice bock, but nothing extraordinary. 090619

Bottle at home, thanks to P for bringing it back from Twickenham. Aroma is roasty and chocolate, grassy and bittering hop, slightly yeasty. Taste is similar, quite a bit of bittering hops. A better example of a style i dont really like.

A Mes rate: bottle at Twickenham beer festival.
The first thing I did at ’Twickers’ was go straight to the foreign bar and buy as much as I could afford of the De Molen H&V to take home and then I grabbed a bottle of this to start me off. This is a cracking bock. Cloudy red brown with an impressive off white head. Full of dusty fruit and dark chocolate. Brimming with warmth and chewyness. A glorious delicate sweetness from the fruity alcohol gives it plenty of guts. The eventual dryness on the palate keeps me throwing it back. I could get drunk on this pretty quickly without even trying. An excellent sweet chocolate finish with just the right amount of bitterness from the quality hoppage rounds it off really well. More lovely beer from Menno.

Very hazy amber body, small beige head; Very malt deep complex nose with chocolate malt aromas sticking out and bringing lots of character; Soft textured quite sweet deep body, bitter mostly from malt; Long good finish with a bitter bite, malt sweet and chocolate aromas. Great!
