Bottle (Koningshoeven Bock): Misty ruby, nice head and lacing. Nose of caramel, fruit (fig) and lots of bread. Burnt marshmallow afterthought. The flavor is malty with burnt sugar. Nice malty complexities throughout the flavor that just vanish in the finish. Nice drinker though.

Poured with a nice head and some lace. Very ahcoholic aroma. decent dark wood color. Not as sweet as I would expect in a bock. Give ’em credit for distinction though. Full mouth filling body. Slightly unpleasant bitter finish. Not one of my favorites.

Bottle pours a medium brown, with a nice viscous flow. Modest but lasting light tan head. Malty and rich slightly chocolate aroma. Some slightly ascidic notes and an overall woody lightly sweety dark malt flavor.
Thanks Buck Dutch for sharing this one.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle (30cl): Hazy, ruby-amber coloured, creamy, persistent off-white head, sticking to the glass, fruity, caramelly and toasted-malty nose with a touch of coriander and hops; moderate sweet-bitter flavour with a very little acidity, medium-bodied; sweet-fruity and roast-malty finish with a little bitterness in the aftertaste. O.K., a quite well balanced brouwsel............

750, corked and baled. Thanks, Terry! Dark brown with bright rubied highlights and slim gray rim of foam. Thick fruity pulpy sweet pitted tree fruit nose. Medium body, fizzy carb. Light and rather generically fruity mid-palate. Light finish. Surprisingly little going on here.
