Abijen (1504) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2013
Pours a brown red clear beer with good creamy white head. Smells malts, nuts. Tastes malts, nuts and grass. Thin body, sticky texture and an average carbo. Finish bitter and abrupt.

Pours red-brown with a low white head. Tastes mildly bitter and sweet with a hint of fruit. A very enjoyable bock, one of the best if you ask me!

Bought a bottle at the supermarket. The beer is brown with clear ruby red tones. The head has a cream color, is large and the beer has lively CO2. The aroma is fruity and slightly spicy. The taste is very complex with tones of fruit sirup and spices, artisan laurel and drop experience. The finish is full and sweet with a hoppy bitter at the end. A nice Bock, at least better than Bavaria but not better than Amstel.

DwarfeD (1053) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - SEP 28, 2013
30 cl bottle at home. Ruby/amber brown with a quickly disappearing slightly off-white head. Medium body with ditto carbonation. Caramel, red fruits and some hops. Sweet and sour with a bitter finish. Not the best bock.

Welley_Alves (220) - Sao Paulo, BRAZIL - JUL 20, 2013
Ótima dunkle Bock grega. Cor escura com media formação de espuma, aroma maltado intenso, frutas secas. Na boca gosto frutado, notas de coco, algo fenólico. Final longo, com aquecimento alcoólico no fim. Ótima breja! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Líquido traslúcido de cor marrom como chá mate. Bem pouca formação de creme de cor bege de baixa persistencia. Carbonatação leve. Aroma reúne basicamente malte, caramelo e nitas de tostado. O sabor é praticamente igual mas com algumas sutilezas que não consegui identificar. Corpo médio. Boa breja. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: SEP 29, 2014 Bottle@tasting (2000), 30 cl. Head: quick shrinking beige foam. Colour: ruby red. Aroma: almost none, glue. Taste: some bitter, sour. Palate: thin, medium CO2, light body. Overall: just for fun. *** 2014 edition *** Aroma has improved, but still not one of the best.

McZythos (35) - Nancy, FRANCE - DEC 10, 2012
Smells like toffee and cranberries. Very sweety nose. Colour is quite lighter than expected for a bokcbier but is still dark rubyish and is slightly syrupy. This beer as an extraordinary persistent thin off-white head. Taste is quite sweety overall but intereting little hints of dark fruits and even liquorice.
