Benzai (8535) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 28, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared with Dutchdrebus. Hazy red-brown color, huge soapy off-white to beige head. Smell and taste malts, sweetish, leaves, caramel and weird enough a hint of tomato soup. Average body and carbonation. Well nothing really wrong with it but I don’t like it.

jmgreenuk (4612) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - MAR 11, 2014
Road soda courtesy of Deanso. Poured a clear dark brown with a big frothy light tan head. The aroma is yeast light red berry fruit. The flavour is medium sweet light bitter with a smooth fruity yeast alcoholic bitter palate. Medium bodied with very lively carbonation. A decent Bok but nothing that makes it stand out from the crowd.

Dunkler bock, like there are many in the Netherlands. Bit better than the big industrial ones though.

Abijen (1498) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2013
Pours a nice amber/brown beer, clear liquid with a rocky white head. Smelled like nuts. The taste is light sweet and bitter. Light body, dry oily texture

Douberd (2339) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2013
300 ml bottle, at home. Poured into my snifter glass. ABV 7% ours a very dark brown colour, with a thin line of off-white head on top. The size of the foam takes its toll on the duration of course, as it disappears quite fast. Some spots of lacing left behind. Only highlight the colour. Weird aroma. Molasses, stewed fruits, buttery caramel.. It doesn’t necessarily smells bad, but it’s kind of a funny smell, also those fruits smell a bit sour. Taste of roasted malts, light chocolate bitterness. Surprisingly, none of the aroma elements are present on the taste. Maybe the caramel.Some alcohol present Not bad, but nothing extra ordinary either. Medium thin body, lightly carbonated. Overall, another bock, if it wasn’t for the smell it would be easily forgetable, but at least now you will knwo it as "the bock with the weird aroma". Nevertheless, drinkable, maybe I was a bit kind with it.

Sadly, this is one of Grunn’s better beers. Has a nice beginning, the sweetness is surprisingly tart. This devolves into strange off flavors.
