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.

Zlotta (348) - Amstelveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 22, 2015
0,33 l bottle, bought somewhere in NL, best before 9/2015. Clear, dark red with a medium large, foamy, almost stable, tan head. Sweetish aroma of raisins, nuts, caramel and molasses. Sweetish taste of caramel, nuts, raisins and coffee. Medium long, slightly bitter finish with a solid amount of coffee. Medium body, slightly oily and creamy mouthfeel, average carbonation. Decent bock. Round, not overly sweet and with a special note of roasted malts.

RW80 (1324) - Hoogeveen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 9, 2015
Appearance: A copper brown with a nice 2 fingers sized off white head. Aroma: Caramelised malts,chocolate, roasted malts, spices, Taste: Bittersweet ( Avoiding the too sweet Dutch macro bok taste) roasted malts,chocolate end caramel with hints of dark fruit. Finishing dry. medium body, slightly below average carbonation. Good bock beer. And in the 80’s when it was launched probably the best Dutch dark bock beer out there.

PotjeBier (2002) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - MAY 4, 2015
Notes from late 80s. Had this every year, from bottle & tap, from the beginning, when this was still a dry-hopped bock bier and when it could be quite different from year to year. This rating from the 1989 version. Dark color. Aroma’s: fresh hops, quite bitter, roasted malts, droppig. Flavor: moderate sweet, moderate bitter. Medium bodied. Rather dry and bitter finish. Those were the days....

SaintMatty (5991) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - MAR 13, 2015
330ml Bottle (Moeders, Amsterdam) - Dark brown in colour. Raisins, toffee and some treacle in the aroma. Malty, fruity and slightly ’chewy’ taste with black treacle, raisins, marzipan and a hint of spice. An enjoyable bock.

Drank with Bram while watching Lillyhammer 09-02-2014. Okay beer. The taste is fine, but not very impressive. A bit weak. Average.

fiammanghilla (843) - Genova, ITALY - DEC 23, 2014
Bottiglia 33cl regalo, bevuta a casa. Color caramello con schiuma piuttosto persistente. Bella bock, malto evidente e finale un po' ruvido con una punta che ricorda legna affumicata. Buona ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhold
