On tap. Pours a clear deep brown with an amber hue and a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has bread notes with a touch of dark grains. Flavor is similar with dark bread and dark grains plus a hint of must.

Draught beer. The beer has a beautiful ruby red color and creamy head. Smell: sweet , caramel. In the taste some light fruit tones back but above all the sweetness (almost sugary) dominates. Too little body, too sweet...

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours a ruby red beer with a stable off-white head. Appearance is the best aspect about this beer. Aroma: cherry candy. Taste: sweet with a sweet finish. Palate: effervescent, full body. I consider this to be a sweet dubbel instead of a bock.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bought a bottle at the supermarket in Leerdam. The beer has a ruby color and nice cream colored head, CO2 level is perfect with lots of bubbles. Aroma of spices, some dark fruits and a little caramel. The taste is sweet with a light bitterness and some tones of caramel and dark fruits. The finish is light bitter and dry. Definitely not bad, but there are better ones.
