COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Frothmeister (559) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 22, 2013
30cl bottle. Pours a clear chestnut brown with a caramel coloured head, and very little visible carbonation. Aromas of dried fruit, a rusty metallic note, brown sugar, and a light earthy note. The taste is similar. Sweet, dried fruits, molasses, light alcohol, a mild Belgian note, and brown sugar. Itís a little too one sided with the sweetness. Meh.

03l bottle bought at the supermarket. Dark ruby colour. Sweet scent, little malty, not that much aroma. Nice carbonation (not too much). Creamy caramel with a slight bitterness. Ok.

Aroma of dark fruit, caramel. Itís enjoyable enough, but Iíve had much better dunkler bocks.

bonkiedeaap (264) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - OCT 6, 2013
Bought a bottle at the supermarket. The beer has a deep ruby red color, the color of autumn leaves and a nice head, CO2 level is perfect. The aroma of caramel comes directly into your nose. The taste is full and creamy with a light bitter. The finish is pleasant with a nice bitter. A nice Bock, but not the best one in Holland.

0,3l fles donker bier met mooie schuimkraag. Geur is zoetig. De smaak is zoet met een klein zuurtje en klein bittertje.

Abijen (1481) - ís-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2013
Pours a ruby clear beer with a good creamy white head. Smells gras, sweet and malts. Not very much aroma. Tastes pretty fresh and bitter for a bock. Grassy, hops and fruity. Average carbo, dry texture and a thin body. Finish sweet and bitter.

blackisle (707) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2013
Sweet malty nose, chocolate, sugar syrup, dries fruits (plums, raisins), winy, opaque redbrown, creamy tan head, small layer rests after a while, good, lacing, creamy bittersweet taste, by no means as sweet as you would expect from the aroma, somelight fruity sour notes, medium body, creamy, flat carbo, roasty bittersweet finish but now are the sweet accents stronger than in the taste, also those fruity notes continue. Also just a teeny weeny watery (why do I mention this). Not your typical Dutch bock.

Mooie donkerbruine kleur, vrij veel koolzuur. Klein beetje schuim. Ruikt wat zoet. Smaakt lekker, zoet, beetje bitter.
