Zeer donkerbruin bier met medium beige kraag. Metalig in de neus, aroma van geroosterd malt, noten. Smaak ook wat bitterdroog met lichte zoete tonen. Zacht co2, licht cremeïg in de mond.

Gangstergafje (554) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 20, 2016
The beer had a nice look. On top of the beer a nice layer of almond colored foam is formed. The bulk of the foam collapses within several minutes. A nice drape of foam is left in top of the beer. The beer itself is quite cloudy. The beer has nice color. It’s something in between ruby red and brown. There is a little orange glow in it to. The smell of the beer is nice. It is a typical bokbier smell. There are aromas of licorice root, syrup, caramel and toffee. The licorice gives the beer a nice bittersweet natural aroma. The other aromas could have been a tiny bit stronger, to properly balance out the licorice. The taste is the same. Again, the licorice is a bit to strong. It makes the beer a tiny bit to bitter. It’s a by dry. There is a nice touch of wood in the taste. The palate is a bit boring to be honest. A little meet sensation would have been nice.

jawlo (370) - Katowice, POLAND - MAR 23, 2016
Aromat: przyjemny karmel i tosty. Wygląd: barwa ciemno-miedziana, piana średnio obfita. Smak: słodki karmel, tosty, skórka od chleba, goryczka niska. Tekstura: piwo pełne, wysycenie średnie. Ogólne wrażenie: naprawdę smaczny bock, bardzo karmelowy i tostowy, słodki ale nie zalepiające, dość pijalne.

Bräunlich trüb im Glas, kaum Schaum, süßlich leicht alkoholisch in der Nase, frisch im antrunk, voller Körper, süß malzig fruchtig im Abgang, solides Bier, ganz anders als deutsche Bock Biere

The world’s only bock with four types of grain. Nice and complex taste, with a fullbodied aftertaste.
