Cunningham (5076) - Halden, NORWAY - FEB 25, 2015
Deep dark ruby color with a fine tan head. Good lacing. Nutty, toffee, mild roasty and some dried fruits in the aroma. Medium + body. Tad sweet and a moderate bitterness. Average to soft carbonation. A bit oily texture. Toffee, nutty, some roasted notes, caramel and fruity flavor. Decent nice dutch bock.

haddon90 (1527) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 17, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear, copper color with a very thin head. Brown sugar aroma with a thick, malty presence. Very malty flavor with some caramel and brown sugar notes. Not terrible, but a typical Heineken brew.

PlutonowyMan (16) - POLAND - JAN 1, 2015
Pretty good beer. Head not very strong, creamy. Aroma: sweet and gentle coffee. The flavor is "thick", slightly bitter, caramel and a little coffee. Drink a light and pleasant.

coldbrewky (1465) - Hippetown East, New York, USA - DEC 11, 2014
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.

rikstar (1062) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2014
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 (202) - 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 (496) - 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.

2014. Waterig met vrij scherpe anijs of pepermuntachtige smaak. Wel zoet maar geen bitter

Dark brown beer with a white head. Tastes like yeast, wheat, sugar and. Aftertaste is way too sweet. Easy to drink.
