Hunsell (400) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 16, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 17, 2004 Great bockbeer! Very dark, brown beer with a large longlasting head and a full, intense aroma. Pretty sweet but not too overwhelming, very easy to drink, and the aftertaste is really fine, warming, sweet and slightly alcoholic..

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!

30cl bottle @ home. Dark reddish-brown clear color, beige head, sweetish smell. Aroma caramel, chocolate, coffee, toast, slight alcohol notes. Taste medium sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness. Average carbonation, fine bitter finish. Delicious bock beer.

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

It has a deep red color and pours like oil. Smells like honey and oats with butter. A thick water palate and flavors that match the aromas. Very smooth due to minimal carbonation and a healthy flavor with no bite. Delicious ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Douberd (2084) - 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.

blackisle (614) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2013
UPDATED: JAN 9, 2014 Very fruity aroma, syrup, brown sugar, roasty, herbs, soy sauce, clear deep redbrown color, creamy tan head with bubbles, creamy retention, smooth bittersweet that continues in the finish which is a bit more bitter, roastiness and fruity tones stay. [140109] slightly rerated with 0.1 up.
