3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: Dark brown beer. Hazy, mocha foam top.
S: Sour yeast, light bitter hops, caramel and a subtle coffee scent.
T: Same as the smell suggests, but better. Has more sweetness to it then you’d expect, leveling out the light bitter and medium sourness. Not too sweet. Still fresh and balanced.
M: Low carbonation, giving it a somewhat creamy medium bodied feel. Could be a tad fresher for a better balance.
O: Nice balanced bock beer, but lacks a bit of complexity to call it very interesting.

Flaske 0,3l. Gave fra Mieke. Tusen takk! Mørk rødbrun. Mye bobler på glassveggen. Høyt luftig skum med en god del filigranser på glasset. Skummet varer noen minutter. Beskjeden maltaroma. Litt røyk. Myk munnfølelse. Smaken er mørk frukt. Plommer. God fylde. Svakt røykpreg.

Vrij zoet, maar zeer lekker bokbier. Kan zich wat mij betreft meten met de betere herstbokken.

Bottle from Albert Heijn. Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue. The head was thin, tan and broken. The aroma is weak but does contain fruit and malt. The flavour is bitter with chocolate and liquorice. It’s a little less sweet than many boks, which makes it easier for a session and keeps the dentist happy!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark coloured beer with an off-white head. Smells dark fruits, tastes is quite sweet and fruity (dark fruits) at the beginning and has hints of coffee at the end. It makes it quite interesting, and well balanced. No taste of alcohol. Between a Schwarz and a Strong Belgian Ale. Very good beer, really appreciated it.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pours dark red with a dark beige non persistant foam head.
It smells caramel and molasse, candied fruit and a bit metallic too.
Aromatic profile is very simple, not deep and very short with also a metallic note.
Not really good.
