Muddy, reddish brown appearance with a large, long lasting head of tiny bubbles. Loads of flockulation. Aroma of toffee, caramel and butterscotch. Sweet malt taste along with dark fruits and a bit of earthiness. Sticky, cloying finish.

Poured a cloudy, murky, deep brownish color with a huge (4+ finger) frothy, off white head. Lots of large floaters. Aromas of leather, caramel, with some dark fruits lurking in the background. Smoky tasting. Lightly sweet. Yeasty.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
(30cl bottle) Enormous beige head atop a hazy orange-dark brown body, the bottom of the pour was rather sludgy and added considerable murkiness. Aroma is sweet, molasses, caramel, chocolate, raisin/plum, light metallic. Taste is medium sweet, chocolate, some coffee, light peat, soy sauce. Watery medium-full body. The flavor got worse as the beer warmed -- metallic showed up and soy sauce got stronger.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very carbonated, bubbles as in aged beer, foxy-amber beer with red highlights, slightly hazy only (!); disparate beige head. Wheat, sourmash, chocolate, laurel, and the brimstone smell you get when trying an empty lighter. A bit metallic taste, ever so slightly sourish, quite wheaty again, maybe again a bit lactic. Dark malts in evidence. Quite well bodied, nearly chewy, sourness keeps it refreshing nevertheless. Quite original tasting bokbier. If it’s infected, it’s in a very nice way. Like it.

2.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Dark brown color with a thick head. Good lord... it looks like Jabba the Hut shat in my beer there’s so much curdled sediement! Sweet malt aroma. Some malty taste, a little soy sauce, but those chucks of something really throw it off.

3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bought it in the supermarket, never thought they’d sell this one!
Darkred, quite a large and longlasting head. The aroma was really fine, sweet, tender, made me really thirsty! Warm and sweet, but a refreshingly sour fruity aftertaste (some cherry in it) that doesn’t linger very long though. I did enjoy it, quite different from other bocks I’ve had so far..
