yeasty concoction, no head. Alcohol in the nose and some of the taste. Average mouthfeel. Passable drinkable taste, but nothing complex or special, and alcohol is right there.Bottle from the Netherlands, Bierkoning.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle at ’In de Wildemaan’, Amsterdam, 29-10-09 Pours deep mahogany with a creamy of-white head. Sweet malts and mollasses come to the fore and strangely I get a hint of cheese rind on nose. The taste is rich, with demarara sugar, thick malts, but its slightly bitter. There is a tinge of sourness as well, a big but very good beer. A7 A4 F7 P4 Ov14 3.6

bottle from my girlfriend. the best Dutch beer available in the local supermarket! Always enjoy this one. Stong aroma with a strong, sweet, roasted taste. Beer is better aged. Wil drink this one over and over again!

UPDATED: DEC 25, 2011 Poured aggressively and there was a small head. A thin cream film over its dark brown/reddish body. Some lacing. Smell of roasted malt, raisins, brown sugar, and smoke. Taste was the same with hardly any bitterness from the hops. Nice beer but I wish there was a stronger bitterness to it.

The best of all the labels of Hertog Jan. Dark reddish-brown color. Head is nearly beige-brown with no duration at all. Aroma is malty with a lot of caramel and some fruits. Taste is al ittle bit chocolate and fruits but mostly caramel. Long lasting aftertaste with no bitternes at all. Nice body, pleasant palate.

(Draught at ’t Arendsnest, Amsterdam, 31 July 2009) Dark ruby colour with creamy, beige head. Malty nose with notes of red fruit and roasted malt. Slightly vinous. Malty taste with red fruit, raisins, brown sugar. Roasted malt and caramel in the finish. Full bodied and fairly sweet with alcohol rather well hidden, coming through with some warmth towards the end. Tasty and warming beer in good balance. Very nice.

One of the better beers you can buy in almost every supermarket in The Netherlands. Quite sweet, little bitterness. The alcohol is not overwhelming, but brings a nice warmth to the beer.

2.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pours brown with no head at all. Malty aroma. Very sweet flavour with artificial caramel and way too much carbonation. Watery for a 10% beer. Not good.
