2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This beer has a very present sweet-sour plum taste that is too present in my eyes. It could be very nice as a side taste but not as the leading flavour. Hops are unpronounced and the finish is short, leaves a small sweet alcoholic burn (but do not expect too much of that). The body is unpleasently light.
This is a Bock that hides it’s 7% behind a far too light body and a fruity plum taste. Not my kind of stuff.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Appearance Slightly hazy ruby red with a tiny off white head that doesn’t last that long.
Aroma: A bit faint caramel, malts, red fruits.
Taste: Sweet caramel, red fruit and then some roatyness in the finish. (quite borring.)
thin-medium body, average carbonation.
Typical Dutch Dunkler Bock, too sweet and typically Borring.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 33cl. Ruby red, bit hazy with a tiny off white top that fades quickly. In the beginning little aromas typical for bock beer. Nothing special. Just like it’s taste, there’s nothing really special. It’s flat bitterness with little bouquet. Average...

Very average dark bock. Has the roasted malt and spices, but it’s very flat.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Beugelflesje. Donkerbruin, mooie kraag die lang blijft. Ruikt donkermoutig en smaakt ook zo. Lijkt in het begin zoeter dan later als het glas al wat leger en warmer is. Wat vlakke smaak.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Swing top bottle, 330 ml, poured into a snifter at home, ABV 7%
Deep red brown colour on the body, with a small but thick head on top, brown-ish in colour, with average retention, leaving light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of caramel, malts, stewed red fruits. A bit faint.
Taste is also not strong and not much are distinguishable. (Too) Sweet at the beginning, with caramel and again some red fruits and marmalade. Turns to a light bitterness on the aftertaste, much welcomed, with good duration.
Medium thin body, okay carbonation.
Overall a decent bock, but it wouldn’t be amongst my first choices in a bar.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy reddish brown with a small tan head. Malty caramel aroma. Full malty taste with some hops. Very round mouthfeel. Strong bittersweet aftertaste. This is how I like my (doppel)bocks.
