Drank with Kaspar at Cafe Jos 16-10-2014. Has a nice bok taste, but the taste is not very expressive. Boring beer, slightly disappointing.

Zoals een bok bier in mijn ogen hoort te zijn. Licht bitter met karamel in de afdronk.

Nice warming bock. Looks hazy brown with a beige head. The smell is strangely a bit like a baby diaper at first but that goes away. It’s a nice characterful bock with good flavor of burned malts, some pleasant smokiness, cacao and caramel. Flavor fades fast. It Would be nicer if it lingered a bit longer.Still an enjoyable season brew.

Bottle. Dark dark color, almost black. Light foam. Very robust aromas: tar, rye, baked pecan nuts, slight charcoal aroma, canned mushrooms, mud, dark chocolate. Taste is quite bitter, tar and rye return. Smokey mouth feel. Sweetness slowly develops in the aftertaste, hint of panfried banana, overripe pear.

Bottle 30cl. Dark brown with a small white head. Not too much aromas, some coffee. Taste is flat, little bouquet. No difference in taste and aftertaste. Even the typical Jopen bitterness of their hops is missing. Was better in my memory.

0.5L bottle. Pours clear dark brown with a frothy light tan head. Aromas of coffee, iron, burnt tire, and nutmeg. Mild sweet at beginning with chocolate and coffee flavors, as well as some spices, cinammon and nutmeg. Transitions to an herby hop bitterness that doesn’t linger very long. Medium body with a slick mouthfeel and active carbonation. Overall, not the most robust flavor profile, but some nice aromas.

Gebrande chocola geur, lekker en sterk! Smaakt zoet, kruidig, maar snel weg uit de mondm
