Not bad, I get some strawberry and vanilla. Sticky warm and maybe too easy to drink. Tap at In De Wildeman.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle. Dark brown color. Cheap sweets and a hint of roast in the aroma. Soft roasty, malty sweet flavor with hints of citrus. Thinnish, somewhat fizzy but drinkable.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a dark mahogany with a reddish hue. The aroma is malty leading to a medium bitter flavour with a slightly spicy palate. A drinkable beer that won't win too many awards.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
21 Oct 2012 in Valkenburg, Holland: Cafe De Grendelpoort is having a Bockfest and this was one of the brews on-tap.
Dark reby red in colour with a tan foaming head.
Sweet malty molasses rule the taste and smell as most Bocks do, this was slightly sweeter than most though and a bit thicker and stickier in the body. The beer becomes more interesting as it warms a little, dark fruit notes appear in the aroma and taste, caramel becomes detatched from the other malt flavours and a mild hoppiness pops up at the end of each sip.
I think I tried all the Bocks during the weekend and I enjoyed this one about the best.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Canít believe how ugly this brewerís labels are... but itís about the content, I suppose. Black bodied and a foamy beige head. Toffee, booze, dough, cinnamon and candy banana. Taste is pretty nice, almost-burned caramel, well balanced sweet and bitter and a hint of funk even towards the ending. Clean yeast profile, moderate yet lively carbonation. Much better than expected. Flavourful bok thatís quite clean yet with burned malts as flavour identifier. Nice. But that label... (33cl bottle)
