With Amstel the best bock beer from the big dutch brands. This one is sweeter than average, but drinks very well. Nice taste of caramel, raisins, cereal and coffee.

RW80 (648) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2014
300 ml bottle Appearance: Cclear dark brown, big, bubbly off-white head, with not that great retention. Aroma: very sweet craramel and spices. Taste: ver sweet caramel (allmost soft drink like) with some prunes and a bit of nutmeg in the finish. Thin watery body, over carbonated.for it’s body, carbonation is medium. This was quit bad, much too sweet.

It’s like coke. Come on this ain’t no beer, far too sweet. The brewerys do not seem to know what a real bock beer is like.

Franksv6 (219) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2014
Dark beer with moderate white head. Aromas are hops, cinnamon, raisin spice. Taste is way too sweet and slightly bitter.

rdb84 (114) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2014
Bottle. Cola color. Aromas are spices, cayenne powder, peppers, peanuts, overall sensation of a freshly mown lawn in a morning dew. Specific, but nice. Typical Grolsch. Taste disappoints. Manufactured and too sweet. Brown sugar, caramel, bitter undertone. Next.

MelvinKalksma (18) - UTRECHT, NETHERLANDS - SEP 25, 2014
I actually have to say that this beer is better than the sprinf version from Grolsch. Smells like cinnamon and tastes like it too. Kinda sweet for a beer, but awesome.

allmyvinyl (3673) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 19, 2014
300ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours clear dark brown, big, bubbly off-white head. Aromas are metallic, stone fruit. Taste is toffee sweet, but with a clean enough finish to avoid being sticky. Not bad.

Alengrin (2124) - BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2014
Autumn version in Grolsch’ four seasons series and a typical Dutch bock, but bottom-fermented. Moussy, off-white, quite stable head, colour a bright, deep bronze. Malty aroma, bit simple, some aromatic hops, orange, chocolate, cherries, caramel. Malt sweet taste, very caramelly, a tad chocolatey in the middle, lightly roasted bitter sweet, subtle flowery hops in the finish. Relatively dry main taste for this style.

kevnic2008 (8229) - Baden-Baden, GERMANY - JUN 14, 2014
Pours ruby brown, with an average head. Malty aromas:caramel, bread crust, no hop aromas. Sweet and full, but surprisingly drinkable.

Cunningham (4663) - Halden, NORWAY - MAY 2, 2014
Dark hazelnut brown colour with a thick off white head. Caramel malty, fruity and nutty aroma. Medium + body. Well balanced sweet flavour with notes of caramel, nuts and a bit fruity. A lovely dutch bock in my bock.

12oz Bottle (Old Notes-Grolsch Bok on Label)-Pours a ruby red with a small head. Aroma of sweetness and malt. Taste of the same. This medium bodied brew is not bad just not my cup of tea.
