Cunningham (4334) - Halden, NORWAY - AUG 16, 2012
Third time lucky maybe. I tried this once from a litre bottle in Liverpool. Then from a two litre bottle in Utrecht. Leaves the old rating beneth. I never fancied this one before. Now a small 0,33 litre bottle in Halden.
Deep amber colour with a light beige head that leaves a good lacing. Not as black as many other dutch herfst bock. Raisin and caramel aroma. A balanced and fine moderate sweet fruity flavour. Lots of raisins and a solid caramel background. Warm alcohol. Not as rich and dominating as the other I have tried. The best Texelse Bock I have tried so far. But still a bit strange sour background. Decent but not the best dutch bock.
[Bottle from Slijterij Barrique Odijk in Odijk, Netherlands]

30 cl. bottle @ parents. Brown with an off-white head. Some specks of yeast in the glass. More than decent bock which is not too sweet.

50belair (2170) - Florida, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle drank at Polpo Matto. Clear brown pour with an off white head. Sweet malty aromas. Sweet and malty with some dark fruit notes. More like a dubbel than a bock. Medium body and mouthfeel. Good carbonation..

wheresthepath (1524) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 20, 2011
[Bottle at the Bootlegger, High Wycombe] Brown with a large beige head and too much fizz. Had flavours of toffee, butter, and a little chocolate. Felt thin and yet vaguely cloying in the mouth. Weak-tasting given the high ABV. Perhaps it was hurt by comparison to the cask ales that I had the rest of the night, but this really didn’t do it for me. c8

Bosskie (358) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2011
caramel-coloured beer, lightly opaque with a light head. Sweetish woody caramel smell. Heavy, alcoholic with hints of cumin and cardamom. Sour-bitter watery with an alcoholic twang. Dry finish. Lightly chocolate taste with some wood and some spices. Quite salty. OK bok.

PaulW (98) - Southampton, Hampshire, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2011
7%, rather fruity bock beer. Nice balance of burst sugar and hips, with a background of sweet dark fruit. Tasty and easy to drink.

Hazy, dark brown colour. Sweet aroma with some caramel and smoke. Rich texture. Nice, crisp taste with plenty of sweet roasted malts.
