COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Roasty sweet aroma. Deep amber color with nice off-white head. Moderately sweet with a slight alcohol note, a bit bready and spiced.

fiammanghilla (651) - 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

Erzengel (3554) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - NOV 30, 2014
33cl bottel, best before 03.2015. Frisch-malziger Antrunk. Leicht süßlich, malzig. Zum Hauptteil hin kommt eine kräuterige Note mit Röstmalz zur Geltung. Feinherb werdend, die Bitterkeit nimmt zu, die Süße tritt in den Hintergrund. Malzig-dickflüssig, nicht zu süß mit einer interessanten Malz-Kräuternote hält sich auf der Zunge, dazu eine dezente Herbe. Spannendes Bier!

adamnowek (274) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2014
A really nice, even slightly smoky tasting bokbier. Has a thick texture that you can almost chew. Much better than most Dutch offerings this season.

Maakun (833) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 8, 2014
Bottle. Nice deep brown with ruby hue and fast disappearing cream head. Very spicy with lots of IJ yeast, some wood, dark burnt caramel, roasted malts and toffee. Nice hoppy bitter finish. Quite dry and not very sweet. Medium bodied. One of the better Dutch bok beers.

Mainuh_man (243) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 3, 2014
0.33L tap. Pours red with an off-white head. Aroma is fairly mild: cereal malts and some roasty smells. Flavor is mild sweet with cereal grain, but then quickly transitions to herby hop and yeasty bitterness. Medium-full body with a sticky mouthfeel and average carbonation. Overall, not bad. Good malt character, decently balanced, but not much complexity.

TheFoamhead (89) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 29, 2014
I’m quite dissapointed of this beer - I’d expected (much) more. Or did I get a bad bottle? No, I think that they still heve to work on the receipe!

markschiedon (276) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
Drinking from tab at bockbeer festival Amsterdam. An unpleasant aroma, sewer. The clear copper red beer has a medium off-white head. In the taste brown beans and caramel. Medium carbonated.

TtV (126) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2014
Bottle 33cl. Deep brown color with a light brown head that stays. Lovely aromas which I find hard to describe: wood, nuts? Taste is full with a nice bitterness which differs while it lasts in your mouth.

eelco (67) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 23, 2014
Aromas of bread, caramel. Caramel also in the taste, some honey, slightly bitter finish. A bit too fizzy and watery. Ok, I’m definately not a fan of bock beers. That being said, this one was quite enjoyable for a bock.
