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.

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.

Hugi (340) - Waldkirch, GERMANY - JUN 27, 2014
Dark brown, very hazy with a full, creamy head. Smell: nutty, toasty, a bit of plums, yeasty and a little note of smokiness in the background. Tastes like honey, with a mild sweetness and a medium bitterness at the end.

Bock beer with an unusual yeasty body, typical for ’t IJ. Nice taste of sweet malt, fruits and herbs. Tasty beer.

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 (295) - 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.
