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!

Bottle, 2015 edition. Dark brown color. Beige head with a thin layer retention throughout. Aroma’s: roasted malts, sweetish, bit red fruit. Retronasal there’s more red fruit, sweet, roasted, drop. Flavor is moderate sweet, roasted. Medium bodied. Finish is light bitter, roasted. Good within the style, but rather unexciting.

MichaelAwesome (6008) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - OCT 29, 2015
So viele verschiedene Arten von Getreide konnte ich gar nicht feststellen, aber eine gewisse Getreidigkeit nebst einer netten, leichten Säure ist sicher festzustellen. Trinkbar, leicht malzig, etwas muffig. Ganz ok.
