A deep red beer with a lazing brown head. The aroma is sweet matly with light notes of berries as well as hints of acidity. The flavor is sweet malty with OK notes of berries, and with a dry end.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark mahogany colour with a tan head. Sweet, malty nose, bit toasted. Sweet taste but not overly sweet, slight toasted malt bitterness in the end. Not complex, but still decent and better than most Dutch bocks, but that is not the hardest mission in the world.

(bottle) Clear and dark reddish brown colour with a big but diminishing foamy tanned head. Dense sweet and slightly toastmalty nose with dried fruits and a touch of coffee. Sweet flavour, medium body and soft carbonation. Sweet malty taste with raisins and a sugary sweet malty finish with a light bitterness. Decent and overrated Bock.

Bottle: Dark ruby to dark amber coloured, brownish mid-sized head; sweetish fruity (raisins, molasses) and malty (grainy, roasted) nose with a touch of hops; sweet malty taste, medium bodied, slightly fruity-malty finish with a quite weak touch of bitterness. Not really bad, but boring !

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Deep dark brown with ruby shine; creamy, dense yellow-brown head. Creamy nose, bit of almonds, (sweet) chocolate, slightly perfumed, sugarsyrup. Bit empty, mainly sweet taste. Some dark malts, mor sugar. Sweet fruity, fleeting soursich impression, but watery. Fizzy MF, lemonade-like, thinnish and empty but syrupy. Cheap adjunct Bock. Hertog jan Arcense was once the first of Dutch microbrewers to start brewing decent beer. InBev professionaly ruined it. Chapeau.
