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.

UPDATED: NOV 20, 2012 I got a couple of those in a supermarket since they didn’t have anything better. Your dutch bottle of 300 ml, poured into a snifter. Smells a bit sour as I open the bottle. Once poured, it gave me a dark ruby coloured beer, with one finger of beige head, with average retention. Light lacing around the glass at first, then nothing. Some traces of foam insist during the whole drinking process. On the nose alcohol, light caramel and if you inhale deep enough, a smell of burned wood. Although subtle, it makes a difference. Oh, also some dark fruits. Taste is more sweet than bitter. Bitterness is more obvious on the back of the tongue though and for a little while lingers around the mouth. Mostly flavours of roasted malt and caramel. Nice thick body. High carbonation. Well, nothing too impressive, but with the dryness on the palate, the alcohol abscent from the taste and only present as a warming feeling, this beer has a high drinkability.

Pours dark brown, almost black with a small head that disappears quickly. Nose is heavy brown sugar, some caramel and some sour fruit. This is one is way to sweet, absolutely no balance whatsoever. Hard to drink in fact. Mouthfeel is crisp and fizzy, flavor lingers for a long time but again, the extreme sweetness made this beer hard to drink and I only could finish half before pouring it out.

Head disappears relatively quickly, lacing remianing. Tastes malty, with some tannic bitterness and dark fruit tang. Not too sweet, and mildy bitter overall. Well balanced. Little to no hop flavor.

MADpalace (199) - Budel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 30, 2011
UPDATED: APR 15, 2013 Dark brown, almost black, but with a slightly red shine and creamy beige collar. Light sweet smell of nuts with some hop in the background. Wateryt; it is for the slight bitter after-taste that the beer has some taste.

GSAP (472) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 29, 2011
Geur is licht-zoet, smaak is licht-zoet, maar nergens uitgesproken. Hapt wel heerlijk weg, voelt goed aan. Beetje te gemiddeld op geur en smaak om echt blij ervan te worden.

Fles 30cl Kleur: rood-bruin met een creme schuimkraag die redelijk snel verdwijnt. Geur: Licht-zoetig Smaak: Zoetig en beetje bitter in de nasmaak. Ziet er mooi uit, maar daar blijft het bij

Donker roodbruin, kraag creme-kleurig. Weinig uitgesproken bockbier. Vrij zoet en wat overrijp fruit in de smaak. Geen hoogvlieger onder de bokken.
