Ah the super sweet taste of syrupy mash. Sparsedroopy fingers of lace drool back into rhe deep maple syup amber of the beer. Nose of dark sugar. Up front spice covered in syrupy malts that eventually subdue it. Short overall body. Finish is abrubt.

De ingedikte versie van het oud bruin. Wat een verschrikkelijk en emotieloos spul. Suiker vergisten kan iedereen. Goed bier maken niet, dat is wel te merken aan dit wanproduct.

DutchMark (192) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2014
Ok bock. Too sugary sweet in the aftertaste to be realy good. Flavor is nice overripe fruit, sweet malts, roasted malts and bitter hops. Sticky oily texture.

Icedwarf (414) - Etten-Leur, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2014
Bruin bier met schuim. Smaak is licht bitter, niet zoet en krachtig. Het enige Heineken bier wat wel goed smaakt. Eén van de betere bokbieren.

gijssie (1) - Alkmaar, NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2014 does not count
2014. Waterig met vrij scherpe anijs of pepermuntachtige smaak. Wel zoet maar geen bitter

Franksv6 (265) - Tiel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2014
Dark brown beer with a white head. Tastes like yeast, wheat, sugar and. Aftertaste is way too sweet. Easy to drink.

Voor een Heineken een prima biertje. Helaas blijft dit biertje redelijk oppervlakkig. Te zoet ook

Kita (1188) - Koper, SLOVENIA - SEP 20, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l. Clear ruby brown color with medium tan-like creamy head and average sparkling appearance. Aroma of herbs, caramel, roasted malt and dark fruits. Taste starts with very sweet caramel, toffee and notes of burnt sugar, follows by some fruity acidity, mild spicy mouthfeel and light hoppy finish. Medium body, oily texture and soft carbonation in palate. Sweet as a hell, on the other hand first good Heineken beer...

Alengrin (2425) - BELGIUM - AUG 19, 2014
Industrial example of Dutch Dunkelbock, launched every year in october like the tradition prescribes. Beige, delicate, sticky head, deep copper red colour; caramelly aroma, wheat, banana, plums. Velvety soft palate, somewhat sugary but at first subtle sweetness, sourihs hint, chocolate touch; sweet and somewhat cloying finish.
