Dark brown, slight haze. Very little foam, poor lacing. Smell of roast caramel malts. Sweet taste of malts with very fresh and pleasant finish.

JEK69 (396) - FRANCE - NOV 28, 2012
Pours red with a beige persistant foam head. Nose is OK, a bit yeasty, with dark dried fruit notes and malt. Pharmaceutical and cartboard in mouth make that brew something weird.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2012 rood/bruin met fijne bruine kraag
aroma van geroosterd brood, caramel, karton,hout en muffig
zeer (te) sterke smaak, van mout,gist, metaal en bovendien een enorme grond smaak, tevens veel te overdreven bitterheid.
gewoon onaangenaam

Dark brown, red glow, beige head. Sweet caramel malts, rather watery bock. Not impressive!

MrHangover (2950) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 17, 2012
Draft @de paas. Clear brown color, nice white head. Faint malty aroma. Flavor is sweet, byte thirst quenching. Nothing too special, quite ok.

Pours dark ruby brown with a nice big tan head. Aroma of sweet malt and dark fruit. Thick body with a lively raisin malty flavour. Slow, lingering dry sweet fruit aftertaste.

sebletitje (7029) - Enghien, BELGIUM - SEP 23, 2012
33cl bottle, BB 12/2016. Couleur acajou/cuivrée, col moyen beige. Arôme malt caramel, léger grillé, sucré et fruits noirs sur une légère note chocolatée. Palais est malté sur une légère pointe sucrée, caramel/grillé avec note de chocolat. Fruits noirs; prune avec un beau pétillant et une couche d’amertume en fin de bouche. Le plus de cette bière est que au contraire des Bock allemandes on ne retrouve pas ce profile de faux caramel.

330ml bottle (Stockmann, Tallinn)
Starts a bit bready, but quickly veers in th direction of cake, even heading towards chocolate too and even some vanilla. Some sugary sweet esters, including banana, but alas some alcohol in the mix, but not boozy. A nice deep reddish brown, but a rather brief fizzy tan head. Palate remarkably thin, at least at this temperature - quite cold (6-7C?) - so I’ll take this slowly and let it warm up. Feels full though, but with the crisp carbonation it’s remarkably refreshing. It’s a little messy in the mouth, a touch earthy and dirty, some yeastiness is part of that. Fills out with more fruity esters as it warms, something quite appley or even cidery about it because of the alcohol that’s also there. Not grabbing me, too much alcohol, not enough good old fashioned bock fun.
