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.

Temptation (252) - - NOV 20, 2012
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.

chromeotaphor (79) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 7, 2015
Fris zoetig caramel aroma. Donker robijn kleurig met een kleine schuimkraag. Komt zacht binnen en smaakt als een hertog jan, zacht caramel achtig en houtig van smaak erg waterig. Met een zachte kruidenbitter als afdronk.

JulienHuxley (3936) - Trois-Rivières, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 4, 2014
On tap at Zest. Clear very deep brown red pour with just off white head. Aroma is fruity, light caramel, very light berry fruitiness. Taste is sweet, a lot of brown sugar. Palate is med light bodied, we’ll attenuated but quite simple / brown sugar forward.

0,33l bottle. Average bockbeer. Easy to drink, but nothing special. There are a lot better bockbeers than this one.

TtV (190) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle 30cl. Deep brown, near black with a small off white head that fades. Aroma reminds me of walnuts, there’s sweetness too. The taste is not bad at all. At first a subtle sweetness that combines bitterness. The Co2 is also noticeable. Slightly disappointed about the chemical aftertaste.
