It’s a dark brown beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, raisin and other dark fruits and a hint of nuts. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, light licorice and in the slightly dry finish, also hints of nuts. It’s nicely balanced and very smooth and pleasant – nice.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
(Bottled) Very dark reddish brown with a small, tanned and lacy head. Neutral-sweetish aroma with lots of caramel and hints of alcohol. Sweetish-malty, slightly lactic-sour (not in a good way) flavor with low bitterness and some ashy notes. Medium body with soft carbonation. A quite dull, straightforward, and slightly unclean bock.

On tap, last winter @ De Geuzen. Dark brown, beige head. Sweet aroma of brown sugar, some chocolate and roasted malts. Flavour is very sweet, malty, some chocolate, little bitterness. Too much sweetness for me, can’t finish it.

A clear dark red/brown colored beer, with a nice beige foamed head, with little bubbels. The aroma is malty, some roasted grains, little caramel and some fruits. The taste is sweet, little bitter with notes of chocolate in the back. A nice bockbeer.

Fluffy head, deep caramel color. Some hints of raisins and dark fruits in the body. Sweeter than not. Slight waff of alcohol. Slight roasted malt end, but not enough to counter the big sweet body.

330ml bottle (Luxembourg, Amsterdam)
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.

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

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
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.
