goozen (3888) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2016
Tap at Cafe Hesp, Amsterdam: Clear Brown colored brew with an dry bitter taste with some hints of caramel. Typical Belgian Dunkel Bock it lacks the sweetness of the Dutch ones.

mike_77 (5678) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 28, 2016
Light brown colour with thin head. Certainly a very mild tasting beer. Light maltiness, minimal sweetness. Ok but lacks depth, complexity and flavour.

skortila (5420) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2016
Bottled. 20cl sample. The aroma has caramel, some fruit, bit grain. Bit hazy, amber coloured beer with a medium sized white head. The taste is sweet and light bitter and has caramel, spicey (cinnamon, cardamom) tones. Light-medium bodied beer. Boring.

33cl glass at caf De Brasserie in Emmen. Pours a amber colour with a decent white head that leaves lacing. Aromas of caramel, red fruits, chocolate. Taste is malty sweet with a slight sourness to it with notes of dried fruits, caramel, yeast. Texture is sticky woth average carbonation.

Alengrin (4713) - BELGIUM - FEB 21, 2015
Another attempt at popularizing Bock beers in Belgium, a style practically unknown here - call me cynical, but I dont see the point in this. Anyway: medium, lacing, crackling, off-white head, reasonably stable, over a hazy brownish coppery coloured beer. Aroma of industrial caramel, biscuit, tons of iron, dish water, raisins, dates, weeds, overripe (if not rotting) pear, medlar, brown sugar, pancakes with powder sugar, cocoa, hint of liquorice. Sweetish, fruity, estery onset, some overripe fruits, some candi sugar sweetness, fairly strong and sourish carbonation, very caramelly in the malt department, a bit nutty, outspoken metallic sound reflecting the iron in the nose, medium body, notably yeasty, finishing in fading caramel malt sweetness along with a certain, yet subtle earthy hop bitterishness, boring yeastiness and a basic sourishness, medium dry, a bit cloying but not overly so; a faint hint of warming, generic alcohol is also present. Something, however subtle, went wrong with its fermentation, that much is clear, and I wonder where all the iron comes from; this is a bit of a disappointment compared with his other beers. Being Flemish, I get the intended pun in the name (and the 6.6% ABV), but that is more or less where the enjoyment stops, Im afraid. Acceptable alright, but obviously redundant. Concentrate on the Double Port and Double Espresso, Johan, and do not waiste any further time, money and effort on this!
