RoyDeSmet (12) - NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2016
Pours very dark. Nice thick white foam. Smells soapy, kind of like a Karmeliet Tripel. Fizzy beer. Good ’bok’. Has got hints of the ’original’ Barbar beer.

AdolfoCC (256) - Veracruz, Veracruz, MEXICO - NOV 28, 2016
APARIENCIA: de color ámbar profundo con algunos destellos marrones a contraluz, se alcanza a observar cierta actividad de carbonatación; corona de espuma color marfil de mediana baja retención, con burbujas compactas. AROMA: notas a azúcar no procesada, caramelo, ligeramente la miel, algo especiado como anís, frutos rojos y algo cítrico como naranja. SABOR: nuevamente, el dulzor presente y predomina, notas a azúcar no procesada, caramelo, miel, frutos rojos y el gusto a naranja marcado, algo similar al licor Cointreau o Grand Marnier pero no tan intenso, anís; el retrogusto queda un amargor medio bajo, ligeramente amaderado y dulce. SENSACIÓN: cuerpo ligero alto, mediana carbonatación. Ligeramente se alcanza a percibir el alcohol en boca y garganta sin llegar a ser agresivo. RESUMEN: interesante para el estilo, buena a secas.

Mooie schuimkraag, zwak moutig geur , sterke metaal achtige smaak die overgaat in zoete tonen. Erg droog in de mond.

Didn’t feel like a bok beer. Very dark brown, creamy and nutty, as well as caramely. I could feel some flavour from the honey. Generally good.
