3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
330ml bottle. Almost black colour with weak ruby red glowing in the dimple of the glas and average to huge, frothy to creamy, half-way lasting, moderately lacing, beige to tan head. Slightly roasty, dark malty aroma with chocolate notes and hints of red berries, a touch of plum. Taste is dry, roasty dark malty, minimally chocolately and fruity, bothersome dry, chalky overtones; with those overtones fading away a nice but cautious coffee finish remains, slightly too lively carbonation throughout.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
30 cl bottle,
Appearance: A very dark brown close to black with a beige head.
Aroma: dark grains, roasted malts, hint of coffee.Not so strong.
Taste: nuts,hops, darkroated malts and chocolate and some hops. Quite bitter and dry for Bok. Long nice bitter aftertaste comming from the roastedness and hints of coffee.
I was suprised by this, because this clearly doesn’t taste like the standard Dutch Bok beer, it’s far more dry and bitter. Still I would pick this one over most of the other Dutch Bok beers.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from ABC Beers, Den Haag. Poured a clear dark brown with a reddish hue and a frothy tan head with a little lace. The aroma is dry yeast with a little malt. The flavour is medium bitter with a malty liqourice palate and a smooth short bitter finish. Medium bodied with lively carbonation. Not a lot going on really and very little sweetness. I’ve had much better bocks.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Slighly hazy golden colour, off-white head. Aroma of hops, apricot, malts and honey. Quite sweet flavour, malts, light hops. Finish hops and lots of honey.
Feels a bit like an aged IPA to me. I’m quite sure this cannot be the Lambok, due to the lack of sweet dark malty bock character, and eh.. well, the colour, but the people behind the bar were absolutely sure this is the beer they served, even after several enquiries.
