3.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
bottle at home. Pours dark reddish brown with a small light beige head. Nice aroma of roasted malts and nuts, a bit of sweet oak alcohol as well. Body is less thick than what the nose makes one expect, nice warm malt structure with caramalised tadte, medium dry finish, tad of bitterness in the end. OK.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a rich coppery amber colour with foamy tan head which quickly goes. Aroma is burnt brown sugar and caramel malt, slight grassy hops, dark fruits and slightly doughy yeast. Taste is medium sweet and light-medium bitter, slightly sour too and nicely balanced. Sticky texture which is nicely off set by medium carbonation. Nice beer!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
-pours a clear ruby-brown with a huge beige head
-medium carbonation visible
grassy,spicy,surprisingly citrussy,plums and raisins
-Follows the nose plus molasses and licorishwith a roasty finish
medium-high carbonation,medium-full body
This is not a Bock in the traditional sense,heck i dont think its even a lager.
Think of this more as a Trappist ale version of a Bock
I prefer this over the regfular La trappe dubbel

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: dark amber with ruby highlights and a creamy, light beige head; decent lacing. Aroma: caramel, raisins, light yeasty spice, molasses, burnt sugar. Taste: dark caramel and toffee malts dominate, with a bit of dark fruit and a bit of candied orange peel; there’s some yeasty notes and toasted dark brown bread, maybe a hint of smoke. Finish: slightly sticky, but with enough carbonation to liven the palate just the right amount to complement the sweet and toasty finish. Notes: Quite enjoyable. Bottle from the Rare Beer Club, shared with my dad and my brother-in-law on Memorial Day 2015.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Bierstube. Very dark brown pour with a lasting slim foamy white ring. Sweet burnt caramel toffees. Chocolate liquorice. Wood tannins. Black cherry cordials. Clear candy toys. Glossy mouthfeel. Darkly sweet but not cloying. Feels much more Belgium than German.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
33cl bottle at home, shared with a friend. An uncompromising dark bock beer with full body and lovely head on top. It has a smoked aroma on a well balanced sweet bitter caramel mouth. Lightly spiced and raisin, vanilla, dark fruit flavours. Rather strong for a 7 percent alcohol brew.
