Douberd (2182) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2013
Stubby 330 ml bottle at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 9.8% The colour on the body is mahogany brown, on the foam is off-white. Head is thick and tall, with average retention. It leaves spots of lacing around the glass. Aroma of caramel, light roasted malts, spices. Taste of roasted malts, caramel, little bit of spices on the finish. The alcohol is not notable. Aftertaste has more of the roasted malts, only now stronger. Medium thin body, okay carbonation. Overall an okay bock, a bit dull though.

ShivanDragon (1518) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2013
caramelbruin met schuimige witte, licht bruine kraag
aroma: caramel, rozijnen, anijs
smaken: redelijk zoet, matig moutig, anijs, caramel, gebrande en geroosterde mouten, kandijsuiker, licht zuurtje, zachte smaken, donkere fruiten, redelijk op elkaar afgestemd, voor een strong bock met 9.8% heeft hij een iets te dunne/lichte body, had met een vollere body wat beter geweest. maar ’t is zeker geen slechte bok, geen overdreven(extreme) moutigheid, alcohol is toch goed verborgen, valt mij niets tegen.afdronk caramel zoetigheid

Clear brown, light sweetness, light body, thin feel for a bock and no finish. No character, no body, let’s forget this one fast.

Hazy red - brown beer. Typical bock nose. Semi soft and semi dry palate. Strong aged tasting malt. A little chocolate and then some mild aniseed alcohol. Finishes dry with more chocolate and alcohol.

kappldav123 (4798) - GERMANY - DEC 19, 2010
Bottle looks good, label a bit complex. Beer in the glass very dark, small head. Starts strong, roasty malty, quite alcoholic, fruity like raisins. Finish still strong, warming, still alcoholic, intense malty. Not bad at all!

Quack-Duck (7793) - Down South, GERMANY - FEB 13, 2010
bottle. Did I receive it from pivnizub or Bierkoning? To be honest, I can’t remember, it was in my box of Dutch goodies. Thank you very much to whoever sent it to me! Deep brown colour with a red glow, very large beige head. Sweet and malty nose with caramel. Very full-bodied, intensively malty, lots of caramel, dark honey and spices. Sweet, hardly bitter at all, shy herbal hoppy flavours are detectable hovering in the background. A lot of the carbonation seems to have gone into the enormous head, as there is hardly any carbonation in the beer. A delicious winter warmer.

pivnizub (8767) - Bochum, Porúří, GERMANY - FEB 7, 2010
Bottle: almost clear, ruby-amber coloured, stable mid-sized beige head; moderate sweet fruity nose (dried berries), lots of caramel, molecular traces of alcohol and a tinge of roasted malt in the nose; moderate to solid sweet-bitter flavour, quite slim for a beer of 9.8%; a faint touch of alcohol is waving is waving through the sweet caramelly and light bitter finish. A bit on the sweet side, but not bad at all......

Hazy brown color. Oxidised caramel aroma. Caramel flavor, medium body strength, boozy and alcoholic; weak finish. Unbalanced.
