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.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

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.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Modest 6.5% for a bock and doesn’t really push thru. Quite sweet, maybe a bit too sweet, dark and after tasting most of the Hertog Jan range, identifiable as a member of the family.

Bottle at tennisclub. Very dark bock, unless it’s not a dubble one. Sweet taste, nice flavor, just a very good bock for the winter.

3.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big beige creamy head; deep dark intensely red body. Faint sweetish aroma with licorice notes. Light, sweetish taste with strong roasty licorice overtones, wild berries, and marzipan. Delicate, harmonic, and balanced. This is exceptionally well made, and very good. Very drinkable. (0.25l on draft.)

3.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle 2006. Strange out-of-place aroma’s with dark malts and a bit of hop. Sweet with a very light touch of acid. A dry full bodied finish with simple hops and later very dark chocolade, caramel. Not balanced but decent.
