Bottle conditioned.
Brewed under direction of Hildegard van Ostaden, formerly at Van Steenberge, now at Koningshoeven - La Trappe brewery.
With its rich foam, hoppy flavour and fine bitterness, Urthel Vlaemse Bock is a special ale with a high drinkability for lovers of the authentic Flemish brewing art. Vlaemse Bock as originally brewed for the winter, but is now available in 33 cl. (330 ml./ 11.2 FL.OZ.), 75 cl. (750 ml./1 PT. 9.4 FL. OZ.) and kegs the whole year. You can only buy Urthel Vlaemse Bock in the United States. This heart-warming dubbel of 7.5% of alcohol, traditionally top fermented and bottle conditioned flamey dark ale has a tastefully rich, malty, slightly sweet flavour. Vlaemse Bock’s very fine distinctive bitterness makes you forget the long cold winter.

jamaty (1545) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 11, 2015
Marrón oscura, coca-cola, posos evidentes. Aroma agradable y complejo, frutas rojas, whisky... El sabor es igualmente complejo y estupendo. Caramelo, chocolate, uva, y algo de especias. Bien carbonatada y con cuerpo medio. Muy buena

Nice beer with strong notes of chocolate and lesser notes of fig with an aftertaste of chocolate.

Pours a murky brown copper color, with a small head and nice lacing. Lots of sediment floating around in the pour. The aroma is caramel, malt, yeast, honey, and a hint of dark fruit. Taste is malty, woody, and creamy, with a hint of alcohol on the finish. The taste is well rounded, with a earthy character that lingers in the mouth. Good stuff.

Alengrin (3675) - BELGIUM - OCT 27, 2014
The first new Urthel since they are brewed at Koningshoeven and the bottle and label style changed; apparently identified here with Urthel Bock Exclusief, but I doubt this was precisely the same beer, as the latter mentioned 7% ABV on the label and this one 7.5% ABV, apart from - admittedly subtle - differences in flavour. Anyway, this beer is a rich dubbel with a creamy but rather thin and opening, yet stable head and deep, clear burgundy colour. Aroma of dates, pear, blackcurrant, coriander, cloves, medium dry sherry, brown sugar, ’speculoos’, pepper, honey. Candied fruits in the mouth, sweet but not in a sugary or cloying way, drying coriander, pleasant finish with soft herbal hops and some warming alcohol. Well balanced and very enjoyable, like most Urthels.

Crossover between a Belgian dubbel and a Dutch bock beer. Result is a very yeasty bock, with a thicker body than usual. Has some dried fruit and spices. Good one.
