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.

kevnic2008 (7672) - 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 (4342) - 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.
[Bottle from Bert’s Bierhuis in Utrecht, Netherlands]

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.

markschiedon (184) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2014
Drinking from a 33cl bottle. In the aroma cinnamon, raisins. The clear red brown beer has a white head. It’s a sweet beer, taste reminds me of caramelised pear and sweet liquorice. Low carbonation.

Drank with Rik and Lennart while watching wie is de mol. Too sweet. Very unbalanced. Too bad.

Icedwarf (271) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2014
Mooi donker herfstbok. Smaakt zoet met caramel achtige invloed, weinig bitter. Zal niet iedereen bekoren vanwege de zoete smaak.

JaKeAFC (498) - ITALY - FEB 1, 2014
50 cl bottle, 6.6%, contains sugar and colouring agent (gah!). Red color, clear, big stable beige head. Nothing in particular on the nose. Aroma is malty with sugar, caramel and wet carboard. Taste is heavily sweet with some bitterness in the finish. Medium bodied, carbonated, fizzy. "meh".

33cl fles. Donkere kleur en een witte schuimkraag. Eerste smaakimpressie : koolzuur, caramel, hoppig. Nette afdronk.

Taboada (281) - Compostela (Galiza), - JAN 25, 2014
500 mml can tasted on 25/01/2014. The colour is clear brown and the taste is oxidated (maybe for the can). I don´t like it. Next one please.

Nasty sweet beer, with an artificial taste. Like drinking licorice water. Blech.
