Oktober23 is een stormachtig herfstbier met een romige smaak. Zijn diepe herfstbruinekleur dankt hij aan de donkergebrande mout. Vanillie en cognac tonen geven dit bier een warme sfeer. Geselecteerde hopsoorten en granen maken dit bier een lekker volmoutigbier. Te degusteren bij een haardvuur.

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.

Bottle 33 cl, bottled sept 2012, small gusher. Pours a dark purplish brown without a head and with an aroma of roasted malts, toffee, brown sugar, gingerbread, milk chocolate and nuts. The taste is medium sweet, carbonation is almost gone, maybe this one is a bit over it’s best date.

Aroma of malt, caramel, some sugar, earthy notes, a little coffee bitterness. Flavour is medium sweet with a moderate bitter finish. Body is on the thin side. A decent and drinkable Bock.
