COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This robust bock beer is the beer for lengthening evenings. The roasted and smoked malt varieties used give this beer its striking aroma and colour while the fragrant hop varieties and subtle touches of wood provide the beer fullness and depth. This strong beer can be enjoyed on its own but also combines well with beautiful stews.

bierkoning (9999) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2010
Bottle, as Houtgerijpte Rook Dubbelbock. Dark brown color. malt and smoked bacon in the aroma. Malty roasty smoky flavor with hints of oak and grapes. Very pleasant, well balanced bock, but I doubt if the wood aging was more than a few days..

JorisPPattyn (7817) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - JUL 2, 2012
Small beige head on red-amber, clear beer. Smoked, rainwater, ham or bacon, but aslo nutty, as roasted walnut. Quite smoked flavour, as with smoked wood & cured meat, but not very pungent, pretty mild. The finish is a bit watery, unfortunately, with a flavour as from roasted marrons (chestnuts). Medium bodied, quite slick. Nice, the beer itself is more unassuming than the name, but worth looking for.

From bottle at Arendsnest on 5 April 2011. Reddish colour. Light smoke but not very prominent. Otherwise it’s dark malts, with some chewy fruit and a definite chocolate accent. Some sweetness but not too sticky. A pretty commendable and competent effort, albeit a style I’m not generally that fond of.
