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.

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.

VincentKabel (152) - Haarlem, NETHERLANDS - APR 23, 2014
Dark brown colored beer with a off-white head. Medium Carbonation. Aroma of toasted malts and caramel, same in the taste with a dry finish. Fine bock beer, yet a bit boring to make this a great bock.

Moolesen (158) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle 30cl. Very dark brown with and red shine. Small beige head. Aroma of sweet english liquorice and caramel. Very pleasant taste. Compared to other Dutch bok beers this has a very rich taste with a good bitterness which makes it not too sweet. One of the best Dutch bok beers

Way too sweet bock beer. Tastes like licorice water, very nasty. They should change this.

worldbeertaste (1608) - AUSTRIA - JAN 7, 2014
Deep dark brown with a red tint and a thin, disappearing, tan head. Smells of soft roast, toasted malt, caramel, malt extract, and raisin. Sort of nice sort of chemical. Medium oily body. Tastes of soft roast, with a bitter sort of malty extract finish. The finish is dry and bitter. Sort of chemical and after a bit I couldnt drink anymore.

maneliquor (3006) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 26, 2013
Tap at some Irish pub in Amsterdam. Not much to say here. An absolute bucket load of toffee and bland stale malts. Very boring and the excessive carbonation really punches at you. Meh

R2k2 (338) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 6, 2013
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.
