Bottle. Thanks a bunch Benzai. It pours very dark amber with a dense beige head. The aroma has awesome malty and smoked notes. Great balance here. The flavor is medium sweet and has a mild Bamberg smoked tasting note to it. Not overwhelming but well balanced. Notes of chocolate caramel. Sweet malty finish. Very good!

Bottle by my Secret Santa MrHangover. Thanks! Aroma raisins, dried fruits, caramel. Clear brown colour. Taste has got quite intense alcohol right from beginning. Then there is smoked ham and caramels.not bad but simply too much alcohol, it ruins the drinkability for me as well.

In Brand glass, pours are a vert nice dark red-brown with a nice coloured ample head. Smells like smoked meat. Tastes very sweet with interesting aroma’s of meat/bacon smoked on oak wood with a long oily finish. Very smoky and quite delicious.

Bottle. Pours a clear brown beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma is smokey, oaky, malty. Thin but balanced aroma. Flavor has a lot a smoke in the back, a sweet start. A lot of dark fruit in the start and touches of apples and fruity yeast. Nice, complex flavors but not too overpowering. Very nice, subtle beer with loads of flavors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
330 ml bottle
Appearance: Brown body, with nice ruby shades with a big tanned head (3 fingers) . Good retention and leaving nice lacing.
.Aroma: Smoke, Peat and tones of chocolate, alcohol, a bit of vanilla and tanine,
Taste: Starts even sour then goes quite sweet with fruits and caramel before the roasted malts, peat totally overpower it, The aftertaste consist of barley malts, wood, and some vanilla
Medium-Full body and good amount of carbonation.
Not much left of a Typical Dutch Bock but the Peat and smoked and wood tones worked out quite nicely.
