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 (1977) - Bussum, - DEC 14, 2012
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.

meerbier (1468) - Pijnacker, NETHERLANDS - APR 2, 2014
Bottle@Home. Not a bad beer at all. Pretty much a on the Belgian side Doppelbock. Although the smoke was there it wasn’t really overwhelming. Also houtgerijpt (barrel-aged) was hard to find.

bartlebier (1486) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - MAR 23, 2014
33cl bottle, Mitra Nijmegen 12/2013. Pours a chestnut brown, highly carbonated. Pleasant bourbon wood cask aroma, with some figgy sweetness and roast. Subtle smoaked malts, not Schlenkerla but Spezial diluted, in the taste, complimented with a rather forced wood chip cedar dryness, making for a young, white woody astringency that overpowers the subtlety of raisin and nut roast aromas in the base doppelbock. Wood aging seems to be forced upon this beer, hence not shining through the flavour profile organically.

Moolesen (157) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 24, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Dark brown with a red shine through. Small off white head. Nose has hints of smoke. Taste of smoked malt, bacon. Very ingense flavours. Nice bitter finish makes it a very nice beer.

Idiosynkrasie (3593) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - FEB 15, 2014
330ml bottle. Clear, dark copper colour with average to huge, frothy to creamy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, sulphur-coloured head. Slightly smoky, caramel malty aroma, a touch of toffee, vanilla and oak. Taste is minimally sweet caramel malty, hints of toffee, vanilla, some smoke, a touch of oak. Well balanced, moderate use of smoked malt. Tastes like what others try to achieve by Bourbon BA - nifty.

mike_77 (2966) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2014
Dark brown colour. Quite a rich, malt aroma with light smokiness. Full flavoured with sweeter malty notes balancing the light woody, salty, smokiness.

Grzesiek79 (3114) - 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.

androman (296) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - JAN 5, 2014
33cl bottle @ home. Clear dark reddish-brown color, average beige head. Aroma smoked bacon, caramel, cheese, soy sauce, dark chocolate, cereal, rotten wood. Taste light sweetness, medium bitterness, umami. Full body, slightly watery, average carbonation, not too long moderated bitter finish. Interesting combination of aroma and taste, but I was expecting for a bit more powerful flavor.
