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.

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.

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.
