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.

#570 Rotbrauner Herbstbock mit feiner, cremiger Schaumkrone. Ein recht süßes Malzaroma mit leichten Duft nach gebrannten Mandeln. Im Antrunk sehr weich und ziemlich unbockig leicht. Der Geschmack ist für meinen Geschmack etwas zu süß geraten, fast nach Kandiszucker. Der Abgang ist leicht kräuterig und wird zum Glück etwas herber, kann aber den zu süßen Gesamteindruck auch nicht mehr retten. Test vom 29.11.2010, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 12,10,9,10,10,9 - 9,65

Douberd (3294) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2012
Bottle of 300 ml, at home. ABV is 6,5%. Poured into a snifter. Dark ruby colour, but lighter than other bocks I had this season. One finger of head, with average retention. Light lacing around the glass, mostly where the beer touches the glass. A thin layer of foam persists through the whole drinking process. The smell is where it gets really interesting. Sweet and sour at the same time. After that, a strong smell of boiled fruits, mostly sour cherries, and sugars, the way a fresh made jam smells. Taste is quite similar to the smell. Boiled fruits at first, but then becomes much more complex, some apple syrup, some herbs and spices, but I can’t really define what and which. Nice full body with light carbonation. I was looking for it for some time as it’s not so widely available at the supermarkets, at least around my area, and I’m really glad I found it. Probably on my top 5 of the bock beers I have tasted this season.

30 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Mitra. Ruby brown with an off-white head. Almost port-like aroma; red fruit, oak, molasses and roasted malts. Quite bitter taste and aftertaste. Tasteful bok.

Very weak aroma with hints of spices and caramel. Fine head with good lacing. Very bland taste of sweetened malts with bitter hoppy finish. Very frail bodied, carbonation too soft and not at all challenging to drink.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - OCT 18, 2012
Inkább egy erősre főzött fekete teának néz ki, mint sörnek, még a habja is olyan, mint a habosra kevert teának. Illata viszont nagyon tejkaramellás és túlérett gyümölcsök vannak benne szép számmal. Megkóstolva is tiszta tejkaramella, füge, licsi, kevés fűszer és egy kis fásság. Nem igazán testes és az utóíze ennek is fanyar egy kicsit és keserédes. Igaza van Armandonak, amikor azt mondja, hogy az összes kóstolt holland bockban van egy kis ribizli.

ShivanDragon (2339) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2012
Roodbruin met staniele schuimkraag. Gebrande mout en karamelsmaak en fruit en enige drop. Matige body uitmondend in een lange hoppige bitterheid

Fris en licht kruidig. Is niet zo zoet en vrij bitter voor een herfstbock. Weinig body.

33cl bottle. A average bock. It has a nice dark color. The texture is oily, but the taste was too sweet for me.
