Aroma de malte e caramelo, sabor levemente adocicado e coloração vermelha super escura. É uma cerveja com perfume, com excelente formação de espumas, longa e duradoura. 8.1% de álcool, com leve amargor, bem balanceada. Seguirei as mesmas palavras do meu pai: "A melhor bock que já tomei. "

Douberd (1702) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 1, 2014
Stubby bottle of 330 ml, poured into a tulip glass at home, ABV at 8.1% The beer has a very deep red brown colour on the body, with nice ruby shades when hold against the light, intense activity in it, and a tall thick head sitting on top, beige in colour and with good retention. Light lacing left on the glass after it has collapsed. Aroma of toasted malts, vinous notes, red and dark fruits, especially plums. Nice taste, sweet in general, very fruity, with strawberry jam and plums, wine notes, the alcohol more than notable. Medium thick body, good carbonation with a bite. Overall a very good beer, the best from the Gauloise brand I had so far.

bdunhill (238) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAR 30, 2014
This Wallon beer is light, sweet and bitter all at the same time but for the brown ale that is a lot of punch in one sip. Great all around beer.

Jonb5 (315) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 28, 2014
330ml bottle, poured into Kasteel chalice. A: Dark brown mahogany, thick looking, initial small tanned head disappeared quickly, kept some lacing. S: Chocolate mouse, earthy. T: Chocolate mouse, fudge, earthy, candy sugar, raspberry, kept the booze hidden until the very end. M: Smooth, fairly heavy texture, carbonation didn’t dominate. O: Tasted suspiciously like Waterloo 8 and other dark ales from Du Bocq. Pretty solid but nothing that will stick in the memory.

budedou (256) - Villemandeur, FRANCE - MAR 9, 2014
Beautifull dark brown colour with red hues, quite bitter and quite sweet that do not blend well together. Not too good.

Migmar (219) - Espoo, FINLAND - MAR 8, 2014
Dark ruby brown, creamy layer of foam. Caramel, syrup, plums. Light bitterness, some sourness. Semi-full palate, rather fizzy. One of those tasty and smooth Belgians that are not that interesting but always very pleasant to drink.
