UPDATED: FEB 4, 2005 When I tasted it, it was still brewed by Leyerth (Steenberghe) but they are brewing it themselves now. Butterscotch aroma with light spices (is this ginger?). Dark brown color, light brown head, very nice lace. Sweet, light bitter, butterscotch, nice sourness in the finish, little sticky. worldbeertaste (1805) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - OCT 24, 2013
Served way too cold. Deep brown almost black with a sticky, thick, lasting, frothy, covers the glass head. Smells of raisins, grass, caramel and soft coffee roast. Medium frothy, oily body. Tastes of liquorish, caramel, raisins, and deep malt. Some brown sugar. A decent bock and probably their best beer. rauchbier (3882) - Isle Of Beer, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - NOV 28, 2004
Keg, De Bekeerde Suster Oct2003 (contract brewed elsewhere at the time). Deep ruby red, creamy Off white head and moderate condition. Low fruity malt aromas, sweet in the mouth with some fruity berries and a faintly tart edge. A yeastiness develops mingling with the fruitiness in the finish to become bitter sweet.

On tap @ Bekeerde Suster. Dark reddish brown, off-white head. Sweet malty aroma, caramelly taste, sweet, but not overly so, good, gentle bitterness in the end. Not very exciting yet technically well-made and enjoyable bock. larsga (7509) - Oslo, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2007
Medium beige creamy head. Reddish brown body, slightly hazy. Light fruity wild berry aroma. Sweet wild berry and toffee taste with light roasted notes. Dry hoppy aftertaste, slightly metallic. Very nice! (0.33l draft.)

, Spui, Amsterdam. Amber colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is spices, malts, hops and some mild yeast. Flavour is quite much malts, some yeast, hops and spices. Pleasant bock.
On tap at De Bekeerde Suster. Light reddish brown colour, creamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate, cocoa, malts. Flavour is caramel, cocoa, malty sweet but not too sweet, with a chocolate and roasted malt bitter finish. Medium bodied, soft carbonation. Decent bock. madmitch76 (24388) - , Essex, ENGLAND - DEC 4, 2010

On tap at De Bekeerde Suster, Amsterdam. Clear labelled ’Bock Ros 2010’ - new recipe? Clear brown - red beer. Good creamy tan head. Light soft palate. A little dry. Trace of minerals and then slightly burned toffee. Well integrated in some supressed orangey hop bitterness. Tiny trace of bubblegum sweetness in the finish. Fresh and nicely jioned up. Postscript: Did not notice any ginger in this at all!
Like the name. Glowing brown body and stable light tan head. Dark malts, nutty, some very light smoke. Pretty smooth sticky dark sugars and a roast background. Very decent, better than expected. Served too cold unfortunately. (On tap at PINT Bokbierfestival) richlamb (18) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2013
Served in a thistle-shaped glass at the brewpub, dark brown and a little muddy with a huge creamy tan head.
Aroma after warming is classic bock - blended melanoidin malts with a toasty complexity, and the flavour follows suit. Its fairly clean with a mild but noticable bitterness that just lingers slightly.
The carbonation is a tad low and the body is light-medium, so the mouthfeel was a bit watery, the only slight disappointment in this otherwise very easy to drink beer. Alcohol is well hidden.
(The beer seemed young - shame it’s not likely to get a chance to age as it would improve nicely)
