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!

This beer is far away from being a "devine beer". Even if they pretend it to be one. Knowing that Jopen definitely brews some of the finest beers of the Netherlands, this one is disapointing.

Ok, Iím done with the bock beers now. This is quite a standard bock, nothing special. Mostly malts in aroma and taste, medium body, medium carbonation, sticky.

Typical bock beer, not to sweet, some freshness & warmth. Not really impressive but still really nice.

Flesje jopen bockbier. Geur heeft iets van metaal, maar ook karamel. De smaak is lekker soepel met de tonen die je verwacht van een bockbier , met hinten als karamel donker bier en zelfs in de verte iets van koffie. De afdronk is zacht en de nasmaak is wel redelijk snel weg. Een prima bockbier !

From a bottle from the supermercato. From the bottle comes a mud, Amber colored beer with a big foam head. Taste of chocolate, caramel en coffee. All in all its not too expressive but a nice bok.

DarkElf (3035) - La Jolla, California, USA - OCT 20, 2014
20-Oct-14 (300-ml bottle)
This beer pours a hazy, light-brown body and half an inch of tan head that settles to a patchy sheet. The nose is fully malty, with caramel, dried fruit, brown sugar, molasses, and toffee. On the palate, itís noticeably smoky and shows plenty of dried fruit flavor, and these are nice offsets for the otherwise sweet, caramely, toasty, and toffee-like malt character. The beer is medium-plus in weight, medium in carbonation, and though not dry on the palate, itís not sugary, cloying, or heavy either. Overall, although this may have aged longer than desired, itís very tasty and enjoyable.
