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.

Kavu (2149) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 21, 2011
Pours very dark red with a medium head. Aroma is wheat and banana. Flavor is roasted malts and some banana. Not bad at all.

Martinus (2744) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2011
Brown red colour, big fluffy tan head. Malty aroma, caramel, dried fruits, some roasted tones. Flavour sweet, but less sweet than some others in the genre. Malty, caramel. Body on the thin side. Dry roasted finish with some bitterness. Not bad for a bock, but I’m not the greatest fan of the genre.
(Draught @ Café in Baarle-Nassau)

MrHangover (2455) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 12, 2011
Bottle. Brown colour with a tanned head. Aroma of roast, apples, ripe fruits and malts. Flavour is full and fresh. Starts off with roastiness, continues into freshness with malts and finishes a bit sweet. Well balanced, good bockbier.

MMR (284) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 8, 2011
Pours dark brown with a redish glow and small foam head. Has a typical aroma of Hertog Jan with most notably caramel and toast. Strong bitter-sweet and a real Bock-treat.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - OCT 5, 2011
Dark brown with some red glow and with a small tan head. Deep malty aroma with toast, raisin, croissant and maybe some cacao. Aroma misses complexity but is decent enough with a solid light fruity sweetness while maintaining the malty focus. Mouthfeel is smooth. Ends quickly though, maybe needs some more hops. Nothing wrong with this. (33cl bottle)

Benzai (7340) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 31, 2011
Bottle @ home. Pretty nice for a bockbier, normally I don’t really like this style but this beer is pretty decent. (Note: old rating, so maybe a re-rate would have a different outcome)

TaxiDriver (1472) - Stadland, GERMANY - JUL 15, 2011
Bottle, A nice malty smell of chocolate. The large beige creamy head has a long duration, the body is black. The taste is also quite malty with a lot of chocolate in it. The body is medium strong and creamy, light oily with a normal carbonation.

DutchDrebus (3890) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - JUN 27, 2011
Okay bockbeer. Don’t really like the style since most of the time it’s too sweet for me. Colour is lovely, exactly like it should be in this style. Could use a bit less-sweetness and a bit more body.

Koelschtrinker (9998) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - MAY 21, 2011
Süßer, ansonsten recht trockener Malzantrunk, der schnell erheblich nachlässt. Es bleibt ein trockener und ausgedünnt wirkender Malzton, der im Mittelteil wirklich nichts zu bieten hat. Hintergründig etwas bananig, was wohl vom hier spürbaren Alkohol kommt. Im Abgang immerhin etwas röstig, dennoch recht schwach. Das Bier wird hier noch trockener, was sich keiensfalls positiv auswirkt. 11/7/8/7/9/8

Quack-Duck (7778) - Down South, GERMANY - MAY 14, 2011
bottle, courtesy of Bierkoning. Brown colour, mid-sized beige head. Malty, roasetd malts, raisins. Nothing exceptional, but quite nice.
