Unsure if the beer is still brewed by Proef. Could be brewed (partly at least) in Haarlem.

from tap. 2012 and 2013 version at the same time. older version has a lot more chocolate and coffee flavour. but the carbonation was allmost gone. the new version has a lot more fruit, raisins, and grapes, and carbonation in the taste. one of the better bock beers from here

Dark brown colour, beige nicely lacing head. Aroma and taste are big on liquorice, burnt malts and alcohol, a little (red) fruity, some dark chocolate, clove. Aftertaste lingers nicely. Really oily mouthfeel, medium carbonation, good body.

(Drinking date: 11 July 2014) Pitchblack beer with a beige frothy head of foam. Bit of a metal aroma, but also nice burned aromas. Also a bit salted liqorice aroma, and aromas of ripe dark fruits. The taste is really good. Bitterness of the burned malts, and a bit of a liqorice taste. The mouthfeel is also good. Slightly thicker/smoother body with medium carbonation. Overall, this is a really good beer. Strong beer with good burned aroma and flavour, and a slightly thick body. I like this! Total score 3.9!

Aroma roasted malt, caramel, moderated chocolate and coffee, licorice, hint of dried fruits. Alcohol is slightly noticable already in the nose. Taste medium sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, coffeeish bitter-sweet finish with medium duration. Deliciuos dessert beer.

An improved version of the normal bock beer they brew. Where the normal bock is a little bland, this one gives you a kick in the head with all the diverent tastes it contains. It has the look of a bock beer, dark brown with an off white head and a medium carbonation. Earthy character with dark fruits, grains, liqourice and caramel. and underneath it all the typical Jopen taste peeks trough. A pretty nice beer.

hermanw7 (28) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 27, 2014
33cl bottle from Marqt. Aromas of raisins, dark grapes, musty and earthy accents. Not too find of the aroma. Tastes of chocolate, raisins, roasted malts, plum, alcohol, has a medium body and a sweet, sticky finish. According to the label it isn't sweet, but it kind of is :) Not unique, but a good bockbier.

abemorsten (2767) - Mosterøy, NORWAY - MAY 18, 2014
Small bottle kindly preserved by the RBHD tasting party on Fridtjoffen. Pours a clear mahogany colored body with a short lived light brown rim. Malty, vinuous nose with notes of liquiorice. Similar in the mouth. A nice full bodied malty beer with a suiting alco warmth.

Dark brown, beige head. Aroma of dark chocolate, toffee, roasted malt and dark berries. Similar taste, but with much more chocolate. Heavy chocolate spread in aftertaste.

Shared bottle at local tasting, from Voldby Købmandsgaard. ABV is 9%. Dark brown colour, rich beige head. Moderate but nice aroma, malty with hints of dark bread and banana. Pleasant flavour of chocolate and banana, smooth and very drinkable. Low bitterness. Will buy again.

Holmen1 (2467) - Stavanger, NORWAY - MAY 9, 2014
Fra flaskepå RBHD-treff ombord på Fridtjofen mai-14: kveldens første mørke aroma (det har gått mye i lyse, alkoholsvake øl - tro det eller ei!). Sviskeplommer og kvalitetssjokolade. Smaksrik, fyldig med mørke bær og samtidig lettdrikkelig. Kveldens beste.
