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..

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
[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

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.

7%, rather fruity bock beer. Nice balance of burst sugar and hips, with a background of sweet dark fruit. Tasty and easy to drink.

Had this sat outside the De Hollebol Grand Cafe, Den Burg, Texel on a glorious sunny day 28.09.11 Pours dark conker brwon with a light beige head. This is a big malty beer very tasty and full bodied, thick in the mouth with just a little streak of citrussy hop showing. b] A6 A4 T8 P4 Ov14 3.6
