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.

Abijen (1326) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - OCT 3, 2013
Pours a ruby clear beer with a good creamy white head. Smells gras, sweet and malts. Not very much aroma. Tastes pretty fresh and bitter for a bock. Grassy, hops and fruity. Average carbo, dry texture and a thin body. Finish sweet and bitter.

Bottle at tennisclub. Very dark bock, unless it’s not a dubble one. Sweet taste, nice flavor, just a very good bock for the winter.

Bottled (thanks ha1ag!). Dark brown colour, with small white head. Aroma is caramel and lots of malts. Some slight sweetness in it also. The flavour is also quite the same, with alcohol a bit more present. In my opinion a very pleasant bock.

TBone (12329) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2007
Bottled 30cl (BB 03/2008)
Dark ruby brown color, decent brownish head. Aroma of toasted rye bread, cookies, figs and iron. Sweetish caramelly flavor with dark fruits like prunes and raisins. Some roasted malty notes and touch of metal also in the flavor. This is not so much a dark bock (this is an ale), more like abbey dubbel - ok beer as such.

thewolf (11101) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 2, 2007
Bottle, bought @ Kolding Vinhandel. Pours very ’dunkel’, dark brown with nut-brown edges. Small, creamy white head on top. Turns rather quickly into a thinish film. Aroma is rye, toffee, slightly roasted. There is some metal and a slight fruitiness as well. Rather lively mouthfeel. Flavour is not as complex as the aroma, sadly. Roasted malts, some metal, slight figs. Rather sweet, but with the roasted malts at the back, there is a good balance.

TrefwoordPunk (797) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - JAN 23, 2008
Stone bottle 50 cl. Pours a very dark amberish brown with a small off-white head and with an aroma of molasse with spicey notes. The flavor is syruppy sweet at first and then turns spicey with some roastiness. A nice finish. A pretty good bock

Maria (10123) - Thisted, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2008
It’s a dark brown beer with a creamy head. The aroma has notes of roasted malt, caramel, raisin and other dark fruits and a hint of nuts. The flavour has sweetness and notes of roasted malt, caramel, light licorice and in the slightly dry finish, also hints of nuts. It’s nicely balanced and very smooth and pleasant – nice.
