Im a big fan of their regular pilsener, but this bock beer is not up to that standard. Its weak, watery, mild flavor profile with caramel, malts and light bitter. Alcohol scent and taste runs through it. Its ok, but not something you look forward to to have again.

Zlotta (2357) - Hagen, GERMANY - NOV 9, 2016
0.3 l bottle from AH (Sittard), best before October 2017. Clear, dark red with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, grainy and slightly grassy aroma of caramel, grains, straw and some raisins. Sweetish-malty, minimally fruity taste of caramel, brown sugar, molasses, some raisins and a touch of plasticine, followed by a short, slightly bitter, slightly grainy-metallic finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Drinkable, but quite clumsy.

Cleaning out my beercloset. This one isnt too bad though. Nice and sweet, not too herbal, easily drinkable but still a nice and lasting taste. Medium body, soft carbo, slightly smooth feel.

Een prima bokbier, met een gebrandemoutsmaak. Wat houterig, karamelachtig en koffieachtig (in de verte).

Gangstergafje (737) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - DEC 18, 2015
The beer had a nice look. The color is a reddish brown. The beer is nicely clear. The beer pours a thick layer of white foam. The bulk of the foam collapses quickly and a thin drape of foam remains on top of the foam. The beer has a nice smell. The smell is sweet with a tiny bitterness. There are aromas of red forest fruits, caramel and syrup. I also smell some hops. The smell is less than most bok beers. The taste has a nice almond flavor, of the alcohol. I also taste some syrup, caramel and sugar. The taste is nice, but a little bit less than most bok beers. But, all in all, not bad.

UPDATED: OCT 8, 2016 Kastanjebruin, helder bier. Schuim trekt snel weg. Mout, gist, wat chemisch. Bitterzoet, zuurtje en wat droogte op de nasmaak. Prikkelend, medium body. Niet onderscheidend.

jmgreenuk (8008) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 22, 2015
Bottle from Albert Heijn, Den Haag. Poured a clear medium brown with a fizzy, short-lived light tan head. The aroma is yeast, light sweet malt. The flavour is moderate sweet with a light, smooth, sweet malt, light woody bitter hop palate. Medium bodied with lively carbonation.

Currently I am updating my ratebeer with al the beers I drank but was too lazy to rate at the time. I give the scores I gave back than. If I drink the beers again I might re-rate them.

Fairly light for a bokbier. Pours an amber/ruby colour. Aroma malt, candied sugar. For commercial bokbier it is not too sweet, but it lacks complexity or too much in the way of excitement. It took me a long time to work my way through a six pack of these from the local super market.
