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.

30cl bottle @ home. Reddish nearly black color, brownish medium head. Aroma caramel, dark fruits, slightly coffee and cocoa. Taste light sweetness, medium bitterness. Medium body, lively carbon, medium fine bitter finish. This is a tasty bock bear.

Very dark, almost black, dark-red beer with a caramel-brown layer of foam. A sweet aroma with the touch of alcohol. It also has a sweet taste, and in my opinion a bit to sweet. This hangs on in the aftertaste. Erg donker, tegen het zwarte aan, donkerrood bier met een caramelbruine kraag. Een licht zoetig aroma met de toets van alcohol. Ook de smaak is zoet, en in mijn mening eigenlijk té. Ook blijft het zoete in de nasmaak hangen.

Full flavor. Nice balance between sweet and bitter. But most of all: very drinkable, without being special.

UPDATED: OCT 4, 2015 Not a lot of carbonation. Smells neutral. However, drinks very nice, no bad touches and sweetness and alcohol, but not complex or deep. Edit: rerated 3-10-2015 (Shared a bottle with Patrick and Lennart 3-10 after the beergeeks @ Struise day.)

Dark red colour. Aroma of caramel and malts. Sweet caramel taste but also quite bitter too. Not particularly flavoursome. Leaves an unpleasant bitter aftertaste.

Aroma: Huge yeast nose with a touch of banana and biscuit. A hint of herbal hops in the background. Develops a slight soapy character. Appearance: Deep ruby with clear edges and a quickly-dissipating, small head. Taste: Clean with a developing, slight dark malt flavour. Herbal hop end twinned with a dank finish. Palate: Thin, medium carbonated. Overall: Tastes like a bland lager with a touch of bland dark malt character. Not overly exciting.
