Our bokbier that rings in the autumn every year. Dark and full-bodied, but not as sweet as you would expect. The fine, light brown head holds for a long time while the dark, black-brown beer releases the aromas of the roasted malt: brown sugar, caramel and beautiful, dark fruit. The aftertaste is pleasantly dry.

On tap. Dark amber colour, opaque. Medium head but longlasting. Mouthfeel to honey, species, with a compact and elegant malt. Original and succesful, powerful and subtle. Pretty good.

Aroma is sweet and malty. Flavour is also quite sweet but not in a sickly, sugary way. There’s also a creamy, nutty edge to it.

androman (181) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 19, 2014
33cl bottle @ home. Nearly black color, strong beige head. Smells caramel, biscuit, belgian ale-ish, flovor is coffee, dark chocolate, dark fruit notes, roasty. Taste light sweetness, medium to heavy bitterness. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation, light coffee-ish bitter-sweet finish. Dessert kind, delicious beer, not very strong aroma and flavor but a very well balanced one. Less sweetness than a usual bock beer which makes it better.

Medium foamy mokka coloured head, dark black with a slight red hint colour, soft sweet red fruity and some metal smell, medium carbonation, medium peppery bitter, metal taste in the beginning, a coffee like bitter some burned caramel hints, its a shame there’s a metal note in this beer

Bardzo dobry bock w zupelnie innym stylu niz te z Niemiec. Piana spora, gesta i wysoka, trawala. Ciemne niefiltrowane bo troche osadu nawet bylo, bardzo ciemno brazowe, mocno palony karmel, nie bylo slodkie, nawet sprawialo wrazenie ze sie stouta pije.

33 cl. bottle @ home, bought @ Hogerdijk, Culemborg. Hazy brown with a large beige head. Caramel aroma with some hops and yeast. Roasted malts in the taste. Bitter-sweet aftertaste. A bit thin bodied but pleasant enough bock.

33cl last year’s BierEnzo Bok clearing. Inspirational NL bok with a lot of redeeming features for the sugar-sticky Bock family: creamy mf joins subtle full fudge caramels, some hop spice and a hard to place smooth leafy quality. Stout-like roasted malts, excellent subtle yeast profile. Great stuff, even for inveterate non-bokkers like me.

On tap at the brewpub. I like the commercial description for this one... Hazy amber/brown pour with foamy off white head. Aroma of fresh toasted malt, light fruitiness, raisin notes, cherry as well and light caramel aroma. Taste is quite toasty/roasty, light caramel sweetness, sweetness really balanced. Light alcohol warmth. Palate is medium bodied with good carbonation. Quite nice.
