Keg, Arendsnest Oct 2003. Chestnut, good white head and moderate condition. Slight hoppy spiciness in the nose with hints of caramel. Soft and malty in the mouth with some caramel and a tangy fruitiness that becomes noticably apple in the finish but still with hint of caramel, almost toffee apple.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Murky brown with chunks and a huge beige head. Sourdough and caramel aromas. Quite spritzy and light. Orange zest and pith dryness. Light sourness keeps this light even with all the malt. Interesting, very interesting.

Pours a cloudy amber. Very carbonated. Thick lastin head. Malty aroma. Malty flavor and almost Belgian-like. Tasted somewhat like homebrew.

jerohen (1977) - Bussum, NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2002
Brown and cloudy. Nice hoppy/spicy aroma. This one of the few Dutch autumn bocks that actually has substantial complexity. Not very sweet compared to the other bocks, more sour. Watery and a bit bitter finish.

Oakes (12167) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 26, 2002
Muddy brown; fruity (plum, apple), malty, some candyish notes. Slight wood and heavy yeast. Very odd bock.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 20, 2002
Hazy brown. Yeast, hints of banana and alcohol in the nose. Notes of wood with some bitterness and yeast. Not like any bock I’ve ever had, maybe the closest beer in comparison is Aventinus, not nearly as good though.
