De gisting van ons Bockbier vindt plaats bij hoge temperaturen, deze traditionele gistingsmethode wordt daarom hoge- of bovengisting genoemd. Het levert een uitgesproken koppig bier op met een volle, romige smaak, waarin een vleugje karamel valt te ontdekken. Een bitterzoet herfstbier dat door velen zeer gewaardeerd wordt.

Sweet fruity aroma. Alcoholic and sweet fruity taste. Mellow maltiness. Good dunkel, but I’m not getting the bock body that I expected. Marred only by the alcohol - keep that in check and it would be a very good beer.

TrefwoordPunk (797) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2008
Stone bottle 50 cl. Pours a very dark amberish brown with a small off-white head and with an aroma of molasse with spicey notes. The flavor is syruppy sweet at first and then turns spicey with some roastiness. A nice finish. A pretty good bock

thewolf (11131) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel. Pours very ’dunkel’, dark brown with nut-brown edges. Small, creamy white head on top. Turns rather quickly into a thinish film. Aroma is rye, toffee, slightly roasted. There is some metal and a slight fruitiness as well. Rather lively mouthfeel. Flavour is not as complex as the aroma, sadly. Roasted malts, some metal, slight figs. Rather sweet, but with the roasted malts at the back, there is a good balance.

TBone (12474) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2007
Bottled 30cl (BB 03/2008)
Dark ruby brown color, decent brownish head. Aroma of toasted rye bread, cookies, figs and iron. Sweetish caramelly flavor with dark fruits like prunes and raisins. Some roasted malty notes and touch of metal also in the flavor. This is not so much a dark bock (this is an ale), more like abbey dubbel - ok beer as such.

mabjork (667) - Vasa, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2007
Bottled. Dark brown in colouq. The aroma is that of burnt malt. The flavour is sweet and that of burnt malt. There is a sweet and dry aftertaste.

Nothing special. A nice Dutch beer but leaves something to be desired in the taste. Good enough for a night of drinking, but nothing to brag to your friends about.

oh6gdx (20252) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2007
Bottled (thanks ha1ag!). Dark brown colour, with small white head. Aroma is caramel and lots of malts. Some slight sweetness in it also. The flavour is also quite the same, with alcohol a bit more present. In my opinion a very pleasant bock.

ha1ag (701) - Maastricht, NETHERLANDS - DEC 12, 2006
bottled, 30 cl. Coolor is dark rek, with thick foamy head. Basic bok with a bit of too much sweetness. It would be a great beer if that could be less.
