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.

GSAP (609) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 1, 2015
Troebel bruin met snel vlakkende kraag. Aroma met ietwat scherp rijp fruit als steenfruit en iets lijmigs. Smaak is plezante combi van geroosterde elementen, kiwi (!?), noten, koffie in de verre uithoeken en een afvlakkend bittertje in de nasmaak. Allemaal niet heel spannend of uitgesproken.

DutchMark (291) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2015
Nice dutch fall season bock. Deep brown with a small beige head and low carbonation. It has nice yeast notes and is not too sweet. Flavour could be a bit more pronounced. It has a nice balance in the toasted malt sweetness, yeast and bitter hops. Aftertaste is nicely dry bitter.

bhensonb (12947) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 13, 2015
Bottle from Sterk. Pours very hazy amber/brown with a slight beige head. Aroma is med dark fruit and some slightly roasty malt. A bit spicy. Med body or so. Flavor rather matches aroma. It’s a little bitter, but it’s not really dry. Good malty drink.

PhillyCraft (4528) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 5, 2015
Sample at the source, Pours a hazy reddish brown color with medium beige head that lasts. Notes are caramel, grapes, fig, plums, brown sugar, and brown malts. Its not overly sweet especially in the flavor which has a nice balance and dryness. Not my thing but glad I tried it from a friends glass.

Keg at the brewpub. Hazed orange / caramel brown coloured pour with a lasting sticky cream head. Aroma is raw grains, earthy toasted malts, hobey, and a little jammy fruits. Flavour is composed if toasted brown bread, honey, caramel, strawberry jam, grain store. Palate is semi sweet, moderate carbonation and done rough grains. Warming alcohol.

bonkiedeaap (491) - Leerdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle from Dirk III in Hardinxveld. The beer is dark ruby red colored and pours a stable cream colored head, with lots of bubbles. The aroma is roasted malts with some tones of caramel, dark fruits and some brown sugar. Shame it’s not that strong. The taste is a nice balance between the sweetness of caramel and liquorice and the bitterness of coffee and some spices. The finish is light bitter and dry. Good brew again from Brouwerij ’t IJ

Pours a dark chestnut red brown, with a beige head that lasts only seconds before wisping across the top of the beer. Aroma is heavily yeast and slightly burnt caramel. Thankfully it tastes rich and smooth, of caramel, brown sugar, malt and yeast. Leaving a malty taste on your palate.
