Pours a dark amber with a frothy white head. Aroma of roasted malts, some caramel, brown sugar, syrupy. This bock is too sweet for my taste.

The Supermarket tasting, Bodegraven! Clear amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is softish and dry with fine carbonation. Dull caramel malt. Touch of dried fruits. Little spice. Dry finish. Typical macro dullness.

Donkere kleur, kraag die snel weg is, ruikt nergens naar. Smaakt zoals ie ruikt. Echt waterige rommel.

Zuurstok en snoep en misschien wat rijpe mango's. Smaak wat lichter, licht scherp met zoetje. Kraag is snel weg.

Bought a bottle at the supermarket. The beer has a dark brown and a copper color and nice cream colored head, CO2 level is perfect. Aroma of hops, malts and some dark fruits. The taste is full with tones of herbs and some roasted malts. It’s sweet with a light bitter. The finish begins sweet and ends with a light bitter. A nice Bok, but there are better ones.

30cl bottle. Clear, deep red/orange with a light brown head. Slightly nutty, caramel malty, bready aroma. Fairly rich toffee/caramel malty, grassy, hay flavor. Not my cup of thee.

A dark brown beer with a medium and beige head. Aroma is rich and malty, bread, ryebread roastiness and syrup. Taste is sweet and malty, syrup, bread, some rich and cooked fruits, dates, hint of roastiness. Medium+ bodied, quite smooth to drink. Sweet and malty, I think too sweet, still rich in nuancees with strenght of malts.
