Clear light brown with decent light brown foam head. Aroma is sweet caramel, but also some nice hop. Taste is not too sweet for a bokbier, nice. Short caramel aftertaste. (Haarlem 201304)

Deep orange brown with a frothy, creamy, nice lacy, lasting beige head. Smells of toasted malt, light roast and chocolate, caramel, nut with nice soft spices. Medium thin body with soft carbonation. Nice toasted malt and caramel sweetness with a medium bitter roasted dry finish. Nice spices balance it out. A good bock and very nice to drink.

Douberd (1690) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - DEC 27, 2012
330 ml, long neck brown bottle, ABV 6,5%, at home, poured into a snifter. Pours a very dark brown coloured beer, with a good two finger beige, creamy head, with average retention. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and on the background slight caramel and alcohol. Taste is sweet at first, giving its place to a light pleasant bitterness. Roasted malts and dark chocolate. Medium to full body, light carbonation. A very tasty bock.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2012
22 Oct 2012 in Valkenburg, Holland: Cafe De Grendelpoort is having a Bockfest and this was one of the brews on-tap. Very dark, most likely the darkest Bok I saw during my stay in Holland. The head was also the whitest I saw on a Bok this time around. The aroma and taste were of roasted but not burnt malts with red berry notes in both the smell and mouth flavours. Coffee, prunes and plums can be added to the taste thoughts as this is a complex and interesting beer. Medium bodied and easy to drink: pity there were so mant to try, or I could have stayed on this for another one or three!
