Bottle sampled at Classic City Brew Fest 2014. Pours a deep copper with thin off-white head. Aroma is sweet maltiness, hint of earth, fruity yeast esters. Taste follows, cut the fruit, add some smokiness. Solid, nothing crazy but well done.

JulienHuxley (2512) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - JAN 17, 2014
On tap at Arendsnest. Slightly hazy copper red pour with super creamy off-white foam. Aroma is roasty, toasted malt, nutty (hazelnuts), light molasses notes. Taste is rather sweet, a bit off, mostly sweet and fruity, lacks the nice toasty flavors found in the aroma. Palate is medium bodied with light carbonation, medium-dry finish. Not bad, but a little disappointed.

Bottle. Clear amber beer with a rich beige head. Malty caramel aroma, biscuits, dark bread, roasted notes. Malty caramel flavor, spicy notes, bready, quite harsh metallic. Not what you expect in a bock.

Bought a bottle at Bert’s Bierhuis. The color is reddish brown with a cream colored head, CO2 level is perfect. In the aroma tones of red fruits and a little sweetness of the caramel. The taste is dry and bitter with a light sweetness of the red fruits. The finish is fresh and dry and the bitterness is long noticable. Not my favorite bock, but not the worst.
