Hetzelfde commentaar als GSAP, iets teveel gedronken die jongen zo te zien.... Goed te drinken in ieder geval.

Aroma is zacht zoet en kurk. Smaak is ook zeer zacht, mooi rond bloemig zoet, tikkeltje muf en lange zachte afdronk, mondgevoel prima. 2010 versie. Bierproeverij @ de Klep 2 juni 2013.

jerohen (2029) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - MAR 16, 2013
Bottled from some shop in the south of Limburg, harvest of 2010, sampled in 2013. Brown colored, medium off-white head. Malty nose, caramel, ’aged’ notes, molasses, bread. Initially sweet flavor, caramel malts, becomes more dry in finish. It really feels like the aging works, and the dryness in finish makes it very drinkable. Not being a big fan of bocks in general, i thought this one was quite nice.

Douberd (2507) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - JAN 19, 2013
Green 750 ml bottle, corked and caged. Poured into a snifter. ABV is 6,5% Two full fingers of beige creamy head, with very good retention. Light lacing left behind. A little bit of activity in the glass. Colour of the beer itself is a really nice, alive dark ruby colour when hold against the light, almost brown when it just sits on the table. Aroma is quite similar to the wider available, mainstream let’s say, bock beer of the brewery. Lots of stewed fruits, caramel, molasses. Taste is sweet at first, becoming sweet/sour right afterwards. Again, fruits, sugars and some spices, reminded me of mulled wine. As it warms up, it becomes even better, as the sourness seems to fade away. Medium thickness on the body, with the sour finish being a long one. As of carbonation, I would say average. Overall, very good beer.

75cl bottle @ home. A bit hazy red color, small to medium sized off-white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly bitter, slightly sweet, some overripe fruits and slightly grainy. Low to medium body and carbonation.

Quite sour for a bock beer. Dark brown/red. Some hints of caramel. A little thin, soft carbonation. From the bock "exposition" at Berendsen, Enschede
