gyllenbock (6328) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 30, 2013
Bottle at Monks Porter House. Dark, slightly hazy reddish/brown with a small creamy head. Quite a lot of berries both in the aroma and taste. Also wood, grape and earth. Refreshing and easy to drink. I did not detect any smoke in this five years old bottle.

Koelschtrinker (14127) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 29, 2011
Wenig säuerlicher Antrunk, in dem das Malz süßlich-klebrige Attribute aufweist und insgesamt nicht sehr würzig erscheint. Herblich, wenig intensiv ist das Malz auch hier, das sich auch geschmacklich nicht weiter entwickelt. Das Bier weist so einen typischen "De Molen Bock-Bier Touch" auf. Bis zum Ende nun eher unauffällig. 11/8/9/8/10/9

Miksu (5030) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - OCT 25, 2010
0.33 l bottle at Monk’s Cafe Wallingatan, Stockholm. Hazy brown color, a very agressive gusher. The aromas and flavors toffee, lingonberry, grapefruit, barnyard and clove. Palate is too gassy, but there are some nice wild horsey and berryish notes.

rand (1297) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 8, 2010
Bottle 33 cl. Purchased from Slijterij van Bergen in Eindhoven (NL) Dark cherry red under a small persistent foam. Flavor of peaty malt, burned wood and brown caramel. Taste of earth, forest mushrooms (porcini) and black currant. Greedy, it is not heavy. With a touch of peas and black currant, it is a little oily for a final frank, smoked and bitter.

TBone (14785) - Pori, FINLAND - AUG 22, 2009
Bottled vintage 2008 (BB 09/2009). Courtesy of bierkoning, ty Edo! Dark muddy red brown color, small steady off-white head. Nose is earthy, sweet licorice and oak.Medium-bodied. Sour. Intensive wood, earth, some dark malts, some peat. Suprisingly this is very similar to regular De Molen Bloed, Zweet & Tranen I had earlier this year.

fata2683 (2176) - Tucson, Arizona, USA - MAR 27, 2009
bottle, 2008 vintage, pours a beautiful amber with a tall frothy light tan head. Cinnamon, brown sugar, and raisins mixed with a peat note, very pleasant nose. Light bodied biscuit and toasted malt flavors that have a mild sweet and sour character that ends with a smoke flavor that is more on the mild side. A very drinkable bock with interesting flavors and a solid finish.

Svesse (7262) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - FEB 19, 2009
(Bottle, Monk’s Café, Wallingatan, Stockholm, 17 Feb 2009) Dark reddish brown colour with huge, beige head. Fruity, malty, slightly acidic nose with dried fruit, orange peel, dried apricots, spices and hints of smoke. Fruity, sourish taste with notes of dried fruit, orange peel, spices and sour notes of red-currant and tannin. Medium body, fairly dry. This was on the sour side, but sometimes smoke makes a beer feel sour. A bit suspicious form, but still drinkable and ok. Might give it a new chance. (Rating #2000)
