3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
German Bock classic style, with a thick, yellowish white, moussy, quite stable head and clear and deep, but fully transparent, ’autumny’ bronze burgundy colour. Aroma of gingerbread, lots of cookie dough, lots of home made caramel, toasted bread, candied dates, cocoa, dried leaves, artisanal honey sweetness, liquorice, roasted chestnuts; very typical Bock aroma, without any disturbing elements. Taste is a rounded, dried but sweet fruitiness at first, raisins and almonds, chocolatey sweetness too, caramelly and nutty malts, soft, slick and somewhat resinous mouthfeel with soft carbo, leading to a malty, sweetish finish in which a hint of spicy hops appears to render some balancing bitterishness, quite noble actually. In all: stereotypical but well-crafted, balanced, very malty example of a style I usually don’t like too much - but I had worse than this, even from Germany. Not unpleasant and a good introduction to the style.

Hardly any aroma and not a pretty beer. Some water, iron, herbs and spices. Decent, but no winner. Tap at the Winterbeerfestival in Hoogeveen, 2013.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bought a bottle at Bert’s Bierhuis. The beer has dark brown cor and cream colored head, CO2 level is average. In the aroma tones of caramel and some dark fruits. The taste is a little sweet with a light bitter with tones of caramel, toffees and some chocolate. The finish has a light bitter which is noticable for a while. A pretty good dunkler bock which is easy to drink. This is worth repeating.
