It’s De Molen, so it’s always a little more special, but this is still a bock beer, other beer styles are more versatile. I enjoyed this one though.

When I got home from the liquor store and even before I could transport this bottle in the livingroom a massive explosion caused the glass to be torpedod in the wall, beer and foam on the floor, wall, ceiling, sofa, chairs, table, etc and a traumatised person in the from of Countbeer everytime when opening a bottle from De Molen. This happened, obviously, many years ago and none of De Molen bottles I carried or transported (and that have been quit a lot since then) have managed to keep him scared!
Of course the entire room smelled like good beer and I wanted to know what it tasted like. It was difficult and I even played with my own life when sweeping my tongue across the table to taste some rare spared splashes of beer as most was dried into the wall and ceiling and the almost other half spreaded over the floor with little pieces of glass fragments... It was a huge experience and it caused me to support De Molen even more since they really cared about what happened!
Maybe this is not your average rating, I don’t care. If I can say that back in the days when De Molen brewed their massive beers in their small brewing kit and something like the above mentioned story happened, they have been man enough to give me a personal call, help me out in such an honest way and make me support De Molen from that spot moment on because they care about their costumers! I hope they get their problems with the new brewery under control quick and start expanding their marvelous selection of beers (specially Imperial Stouts).
Though my trauma has been minimalised, the goat on front of the beer bottle/label still reminds of that dreadful day a good beer was lost but luckily none was hurt!

75 cl bottle @ home shared with my dad (probably his first De Molen beer ever). Nice dark amber color, big little bit soapy off-white head. Smell malts, some caramel and lightly hops. Taste sweet, malts, a little bit overripe fruits. Firm carbonation, medium body.

Bottle looks simple but good. Beer in the glass not as dark as exspected, huge head. Starts strong, malty, fine spicy. Not too roasty. Fine hoppy-dry background. Finish a bit scratchy, but still well balanced, some notes of caramel. Well done!

I think I had this at last festivals, but obviously I did not rate it. Well while waiting for the next occasion it’s time to check what was this again. Oh, very very big foamy head. Which tastes absolutely brilliant. Once the beer sets a little liquid looks mostly brown, with a hint red. Smell is malty and sweet. This beer might be the best bock I’ve had... well at least for while. Aromas include hoppy and malty thing, which are nice way in balance. There is caramel, bread, nuts, grass, citrus... Nice.

Clear medium to dark red amber colour with a large, frothy to creamy, good lacing, mostly to fully lasting, off-white to beige head. Aroma is moderate malty, toasted, caramel, sugar, light roasted, light to moderate hoppy, soapy notes. Flavour is moderate to heavy sweet and bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic. It is almost borring but it works !

Bottle from Bier Koning. Hazy brown beer, decent palae tan head. Smooth palate. An even malt base is subservient to some mild but fresh hops. Orange and pineapple with a trace of pine. Very nicely joined up and highly drinkable.
