3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Found some old notes of beers I drank many years ago. this rating is converted from one of those old ratings, hence the shortness of this rating.
Darker orange beer with a small head.
I smell some fruit and caramel.
Taste malts and bitters, again some fruit like in the smell and honey.
Back then I experienced this as a nice beer and thought it was worth a 7 or on Ratebeer points, a 3.5.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
750ml bottle (Cracked Kettle, Amsterdam) BB2010-09 - as Wagenings Bockbier 7.5%.
6 Sweet fruity aroma. The clear one smelt yeastier than the yeasty one, but also had a slight glueyness to it. Both very malty and caramelly.
4 Orangy red, and pourable completely clear for most of the bottle, and you can make it as hazy or cloudy as you want after that. Tight self-supporting off-white head.
6+ Clear one is quite liquoricey, richly malty and sweet, but with some dry old pencil-sharpenings from the hops. Yeastier one has a lot more toffee in the retronasals and taste, and is a touch mellower as the pencil sharpenings are less prominant.
3+ Sweet palate, crisp carbonation partly cuts through that. Finish of the clear one is quite toffee-ish, but also has noticeable alcohol vapours. The hazy one had the toffee earlier anyway, and for the finish brings more full vibrant noble bitter hops rather than the aged dry version in the taste of the clear one.
13 Not what I was hoping for, I wanted a great hoppy bite, and this one’s hops were dead. But I aged them, so my fault. However, the body was so sweet and strong that I thought aging would have a nett positive effect on the beer. Hard to tell what’s best without trying a fresh one too. After its BB it certainly was fairly mellow, so I think I did the right thing.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to bu11zeye for sharing this bottle.
750 ml bottle marked Wagenings Bockbier. The beer pours a light amber color with a white head. The aroma is a nice mix of toffee and caramel malt with some dark fruit mixed in. The more I smell the beer, the more it smells like cherries. The flavor is similar, but a little bit better than the aroma. I get a lot of toffee, dark fruit, cherries, molasses and some maple notes. A nice, complex flavor profile for a bock. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Glad I got to try this one.
