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.

On tap. Very subtle smoke flavour. I was afraid that it would dominate too much, but it didn’t. Good, traditional Dutch "bok". Quite light ruby coloured. Round and sweet. Very happy with it!

Grzesiek79 (3257) - Radom, POLAND - JAN 8, 2014
Dobry Doppelbock z ladna piekna wielka piana, koloru zoltego. Kolor bursztynowy z poswiata czerwonawa. W sapachu figi i inne suszone owoce, nieco pieczonych jablek. W smaku Slodkawe karmelowe z lekko nuta przypieczonych jablek. Ogolnie swietne, alkohol niewyczuwalny. Skromna i jednostronna etykieta.

neepsntatties (1216) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 27, 2014
On tap at the 2014 Oregon Brewers Fest. Colour...deep, golden-amber with a thin off white head. Nose...imagine lightly smoked dark toffee! The malt is quite evident, as it should be with a doppelbock, and there’s an oaky smokiness as well. Palate... A big burst of malt hits the palate from the start and maintains its presence throughout! The smokiness is here too but does not overpower the palate, nor distract from the flavours of caramel and fresh biscuit. The finish is lengthy and quite malty with wisps of oak and smoke. This is singularly the finest beer of this style, I have ever had! Thank you for sharing this at the OBF!

Mooi donkerbruin-rood bier met cremekleurige schuimkraag. de geur is acht rokerig, hout, malt. De smaak is heerlijk, bitterzoet, niet overheersende rooksmaak, malt. En de nasmaak is wederom bitterzoet met een nietoverheersende rooksmaak. Een heerlijke dubbelbock die door zijn houtgerijpte rooksmaak zich onderscheid van de andere bokbieren. Tot nu toe 1 van de beste bokbieren die ik dit jaar heb gedronken.

Dark amber, medium creamy beige head. Definite smoke here, or bacon. Earthy, plums. Nice and not overdone. Balanced taste, malty, roasty focus. Good brew, fairly easily drinkable, even with the smoke and malty base. Everything seems to be in balance then while providing a solid, light sweet and definitely pleasant taste. Could match the German competition for me. Very nice to see this from a Dutch brewer too! (On tap at Kafe België)
