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.

A dark amber pour with an off-white head. There’s a nice chocolate quality to this along with some toasted malt, bread, and caramel. A hint of spicy hops, and a light floral note. There is a bit of a cola note on the palate along with the sweet toasted malt and toffee. A bit of floral hops, some light spice and earth notes, and maybe a hint of vanilla sweetness.

Bijl (277) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2016
Amber roodbruin, beige schuimkraag, hele lichaam waas, veel koolzuur. Aroma: Donkere geroosterde mouten, karamel,  veel zoet donker fruit en een flinke kruidige hint. Fruitige hops en een hint van gist die vaker in bier van ’t IJ zit. Smaak: Kruidig, zoethout, noten, karamel donkere mouten, donker fruit....daarna komt er een hint koffie en chocolade door...erg prettig. Zoet gaat over in kruidig en geroosterd brood, een bekende hint van gist en kruidigheid uit de hops en licht bitter. Medium body...Uiteindelijk weinig koolzuur....finish licht bitter, kruidig en droog. Lekker bokkie!

Not really my thing, bok. Sweet, caramelly taste. Imo bit too artificial aftertaste.

Goed bokbier. Geur: brood, karamel. Karamelsmaak, met wat donker fruit en gebrande mout. Aangename verhouding tussen hartig en zoet.

ALIBALI (790) - Kiel, GERMANY - SEP 9, 2016
Nicht Tij-außergewöhnlich, dafür aber ein mehr als solides Bockbier. Der schlank, süßliche Korpus wird von einer tollen Hopfenattacke überrascht. Flasche Stassen

Verrassend zoete bokbier. Volle karamel smaak eraan. Mooie nasmaak, perfect tegen de winterdepressie.
