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.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
The look is nice, very dark and with a compact beige head, very good retention. Too cold to appreciate the aromas (maybe I must taste again). Refreshing, sweet and light mouthfeel. A little bit conventional, neither fish nor flesh.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a small light brown head that quickly diminishes. Lacing is fair. Aroma contains caramel and slight cirus. Taste is sweet and mild bitter in the beginning, ending in sweet and moderate bitter. Taste lasts not very long. Palate is medium to full and creamy. Carbonation is soft. Not very special, but enjoyable.
