3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
UPDATED: OCT 20, 2012 Clean brown bodied with small yet stable beige head. Quite grainy, some roasted nuts and dry. Taste is medium sweet, especially noticeable in the ending, and has some herbal bitterness in the beginning. Some sour note as well, nt sure if that?s supposed to be there. Feel mass produced. No really not very rich or flavourful. Cheap grainy feel to this one. Disappointing. (22cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)
Medium brown, murky body and active tan lace. Boy this is sweet. Caramel candy, cheap grains, some spice, some bread but mostly brown sugar. Taste is equally sweet, although it has some burned notes. No, not great this Belgian bock. (On tap at Utrechts Bokbierfestival)

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl bottle @ home. Clear sparkling dark read color average pinky-beige head. Aroma sweetish, fruit (raspberries and cherry) notes but not as much as a fruit beer. Taste medium sweetness, lightly bitterness. Lively carbon, refreshing, sweetish lager aftertaste. Intersting but not that exciting, I miss the bitter taste. Might be good for occasional beer drinkers.

Helder, kastanjebruin. Beige schuim. Erg zoet, aroma van banaan, mout, suikers. Beetje te kunstmatig en te zoet.

19th November 2013
Earl Of Essex. Keg. Bright clear amber beer, small white head. Light semi dry palate, mildly crisp. Very sweet malt, sugary sweet with floral flavours and candy sweet sherbet. Parma violet sweets as well. Light malt cream underneath. Finishes light and semi dry. I like a sweet beer but this is pushing it a little.
