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.

Bottled from Biernavigatie.nl. Dark brown colored, brown head. Lots of wood in aroma, vanilla, smoke, some malts. Malty flavor, initially quite sweet, later on some wood, finishing quite bitter. Lasting finish. I like the wood-flavor, but the bock itself doesn’t taste that special. Still, not a bad try.

Batavi (216) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - NOV 21, 2015
Geproefd tijdens bierproeverij, uitgeschonken in Struise BD glaasje. Helder amberkleurig bier, met een crèmekleurige schuimkraag. Aroma van geroosterde en gerookte mout, karamel, gedroogde pruimen, bacon, eikenhout en aardachtige tonen. Het smaakpallet is bitterzoet, rokerig en houtig, karamel, eikenhout, rokerige smaak maar toch goed gebalanceerd, niet overheersend. Echt een herfstbier met een bosachtig aroma en smaak, een uitstekende Doppelbock, steekt boven de meeste bokbieren uit door de rokerige elementen in aroma en smaak. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap. Pours murky amber with two fingers of creamy beige head. Aroma is sweet malts, plums, raisins, caramel, butterscotch. Taste is similar with caramel and sweet malts along sweet red fruits and a light hoppy finish. Sticky sweet aftertaste, medium body, thick mouthfeel, light carbonation.

On tap at PINT Bokbierfestival 2015. Clear, dark brownish amber with a big, creamy, tan head. Sweetish-malty, smoky aroma of smoked ham, campfire, brown sugar and caramel. Sweetish, smoky-malty taste of smoked ham, campfire and brown sugar, followed by a short, slightly bitter and smoky finish with notes of coffee. Medium to full body, creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Good!

bonkiedeaap (493) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2015
Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis. The beer is red brown in color and has a creamy tinted foam, with livingly Co2. In the aroma tones of roasted malts, caramel, nuts and a lot of oak. The taste is spicy and sweet and further some clear notes of smoke, further a little watery texture. The finish is light bitter and the smoke is also noticable.

I was actually a bit dissapointed by this beer. The smokeyness is really light, I hoped for more. Its also a bit watery. Still a decent beer though.

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.
