On tap in the Netherlands. The bar owner had stored a keg for two years and just tapped it. It poured a very golden colour but had very little aroma. The taste was very pleasant with a very nice aftertaste. I have never tasted a freah brew so it is hard to say if cellering was a positive or negative exercise.

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

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.

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

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

Full flavor. Nice balance between sweet and bitter. But most of all: very drinkable, without being special.
