77ships (4745) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 1, 2015
330 ml. bottle @ home. Procured from ABC Beers. Apparently not some kind of bock – (sort of expected that when I bought this, I know, I know,…) – RB tells me that this is a SBA. Quite dark amber, little in the way of head. Nose is thick cloying, very sugary, light umami goop brown sugar, gravy, yeasty,… Taste is umami & metallic caramel goop, soy sauce, mushrooms (not in an optimal way, I freaking love mushrooms but you know what I mean), brown sugar, overly cooked dark umami fruits, very sticky & cloying herbs, light herbal bitterness in the back besides the cloying & umami features,… Thick metallic brown sugar body,… It is an honest go at Belgian brewing traditions but it doesn’t represent the best of Belgian brewing (in my opinion), too cloying, almost oddly too umami (a trait rarely found in Belgian beer granted, esp. outside of Alvinne (where it oddly does usually work), too herbal,… For me so far Texels is trying but is a bit of a bad characteristic middling affair so far, sorry. This is only my 4th beer by them. I have too admit that since becoming Vegan, I appear to have gain an odd opposition to umami beers. Not sure as to what that means.

kraddel (4322) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - DEC 26, 2014
Pours dark , hazy copperbrown . Small white head . Smell is sharp, metallic with a touch of sweetness . Taste is sweet, sugary , earthy and caramelly . Metallic. some forest leaves ( fall season scent kinda thing . ) Aftertaste is very intense on the caramelly side , but remains rather metallic .... bit too high carbo not as good as others I’ve had from this brewery . Doable on its own, yet still beneath average .

Kleurplaatje (79) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 25, 2014
Bought at one of the Jumbo Supermarket here in Amsterdam. Pours hazy dark amber with a small, quick disappearing off-white head. Aroma is malty, spicy and fruity in a clear autumn-like way. Clear dark fruits, spices, some yeast, some alcohol, something roasty, nuts, cloves and, surprisingly... liquorice. Beautiful smell. if this was some kind of fragrance, I would wear it every day in autumn/winter. True ten. Taste is sweet, roasty, yet incredibly soft. Beautiful touch of the present dark fruits. berries, some banana, the sugars and the nuts. Some chocolate and liquorice as well. Small alcohol kick, giving it a boozy total, but it remains pretty soft until the end, which remains surprising to me. Finish is moderately sweet, bit bitterish and loveably warming. Beautifully full-bodied with a creamy texture. Lacking a small carbonation sting though, which is quite a minor disturbance. In general I loved this brew and would not hesitate to drink this the whole fall. Nice well-balanced brew. Stormy Stormbock is quite a overwhelming stormer indeed.

0,33l bottle. I expected a lot, but got dissapointed. Not much flavour or body. This beer is too expensive for what it brings.

GSAP (543) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 16, 2014
Tsja, in enige commentaren zag ik al staan ’laten rijpen’. Nu is het moment voor Stormbock te vroeg, de smaak is niet diep genoeg, wel goed aanwezig, maar niet de diepe rijpe smaak. Aroma van ingemaakte kersen, schnaps en zoetigheden. Smaak is voornamelijk zoet met kruidige tonen. Helaas is er nul komma nul Co2, dus geen kraag, en week in de mond. Dit valt me het meest tegen, en verziekt eigenlijk de ’experience’. Ander flesje maar lang in het hoekje van de koelkast bewaren...

TtV (182) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 14, 2014
Bottle 30cl. Ruby coloured with a creme head that fades somewhat. Aroma of malts and caramel. Taste is lovely balanced. Sweetness and bitterness stride for your taste pupils. Great stuff, although I am not sure why this would be called a bock beer.
