One of the best bok beers I have had. Beautiful glass in holder, not too sweet but definitely not too bitter.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
The most impressive about this beer is the head : it is thick, long-lasting and light brown. The body has a murky brown colour, not very clear. As for the taste, it is mostly malty-bitter, even though I could detect some - very remote - sweetness. I couldnít feel any special aftertaste. A bit of a disappointment really.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Hazy, murky dark garnet color, an immense and flourishing tan head. Lovely and lively aroma: sweet, notes of butterscotch, fruit, copper, sea-foam, flowers, cocoa..it sounds like an odd mix, I know, but itís there and it works! As for taste...surprisingly smooth, very tasty, a great big load of thick maltiness that meets the tongue with remarkable ease. Sharp hops at first on the palate, but with a lasting sweetness in the finish. In this case, we have a great example of what makes Belgian beer so special. Itís so far above and beyond any average bock, with a certain effervescence, weíll call it, that lifts this one up, in flavor, character, body, texture...it feels light, but solid. Thatís my story, and Iím sticking to it!
Also cool is itís own special glass, a cute little guy without stem or foot, that has to be balanced in itís own stand, similar to Kwak

Bottle @ Stockholm Beer Festival
Extreme amounts of CO2 in this bottle. It hides most of the tastes. Still, sweet from candi sugar (?). There are deftinatley better NL/BE bock beers.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml corked bottle. Cloudy amber brown colour with a mostly lasting creamy, frothy, and fizzy tan head. Apples, fruity, spicy, and yeasty aroma. Green apple, cidery flavours dominate with yeast, cherry, and light acidity as well. Medium bodied, dry, creamy, and fizzy mouthfeel. Flavourful, interesting, but not fantastic.

Tap@Den Tatoverede Enke, Copenhagen. Quite sweet and sticky, yeasty caramel, toffee, caramel, with a touch of soy sauce. Not really my style, but it had some appeal.
