3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Fine aroma of caramel and dried fruit with a hint of milk chocolate. The taste changes everything. Upfront you get the caramel sweetness which is soon replaced by a harsh hop bitterness that lasts. Too harsh and unbalanced.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
33 cl. bottle @ home, bought online @ Biernavigatie.nl
Pours clear reddish brown with a thin off-white head. Lightly roasted malts and some hops fruitiness in the aroma. Sweet taste but with a bitter backgroundtaste which is very pleasant. Rather short finish but otherwise an okay bock, for a given value of bock.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Hazy brown with thin lacy head. Aroma of caramel and a touch of banana. Quite a smooth texture with only a fine carbonation. Initial caramel, cocoa, banana flavours are stopped in their tracks by a strange out of place bitterness. Feels like a clash. Out of balance.

Bottle 33cl. Hazy brown with a tiny off white top. Aroma not very complex, some yeast. Taste is bitter all over. It tastes more like IPA then bock. Not bad though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Aroma of malt, caramel, hops, light spices. Flavour is moderate sweet with a nice bitter finish. Very hoppy for a Bock. Not being a fan of sweet Bocks, this is a welcome deviation from the style.
