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.

jerohen (2169) - Bussum, - DEC 14, 2012
UPDATED: JAN 2, 2016 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 (original rating: 3.6) Still, not a bad try. Re-rate at cafe De Rat, Utrecht: Liked it a lot more this time around, great smoked bock!

17Beer (215) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 1, 2016
Sweet and malty aromas of bread with an alcohol tinge. Pours dark dark brown with a dissipating tan head with massive lacing. Big round sweet and assertive tastes of brown bread and malt with a surprising hops finish that makes the taste journey complete. Medium carbonation. Very good.

Turbid/opaque orange/brown beer with a slight/medium beige head.
