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.

Fluffy head, deep caramel color. Some hints of raisins and dark fruits in the body. Sweeter than not. Slight waff of alcohol. Slight roasted malt end, but not enough to counter the big sweet body.

Ober (2813) - Bommelerwaard, NETHERLANDS - MAY 6, 2008
A clear dark red/brown colored beer, with a nice beige foamed head, with little bubbels. The aroma is malty, some roasted grains, little caramel and some fruits. The taste is sweet, little bitter with notes of chocolate in the back. A nice bockbeer.

Clear dark brown pour with a thick beige head. Pleasant aroma of fruits, chocolate, candy sweetness and mild smoked malt. Good flavor of fruits, malt, chocolate and candy sweetness. The body is light to medium with a slightly vinous texture and soft carbonation.

Head disappears relatively quickly, lacing remianing. Tastes malty, with some tannic bitterness and dark fruit tang. Not too sweet, and mildy bitter overall. Well balanced. Little to no hop flavor.

Xstream (242) - NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2013
A: Dark brown beer. Hazy, mocha foam top. S: Sour yeast, light bitter hops, caramel and a subtle coffee scent. T: Same as the smell suggests, but better. Has more sweetness to it then youd expect, leveling out the light bitter and medium sourness. Not too sweet. Still fresh and balanced. M: Low carbonation, giving it a somewhat creamy medium bodied feel. Could be a tad fresher for a better balance. O: Nice balanced bock beer, but lacks a bit of complexity to call it very interesting.

Zlotta (2156) - Hagen, GERMANY - NOV 4, 2014
0,3 l bottle from Albert Heijn XL in Roermond. Clear dark red brown, sticky tan head. An absolute beauty! Weak aroma of molasses, caramel and candy sugar. Taste is the same with some sweetness. Thick texture, almost no carbonation. Some subtle bitterness in the end. First Bock for me this year, a really good one!
