Clear ruby color, creamy brownish head. Metallic, caramelly and grassy hoppy aroma. Grassy hoppy flavor, some roasted caramel, simple rawy flavor - very typical Budels beer - simple and metallic. Aftertaste has sugars and light alcohol.
Tap Bokbierfestival, Amsterdam: Brown ruby sweet but also bitter bock from the smallest of the big Dutch brewers. iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - SEP 30, 2007
Dark translucent red body, small head. Sweet, malty aroma, some soapiness. Vanilla and barley in the taste, with an (again, kind of soapy) hop-bitterness. Decent balance. Some liqourice in the finish, which was quite dry for the style.

Bottle 33cl. Poured a pale reddy brown, with no prominent head. A woody, malt aroma, with hints of nuts and strong alcohol. Not too hoppy in smell. Flavour is rich malty/nutty. Hints of whisky accompanying the alcohol level. Lasting bitter alcoholic finish, with a little sweetness. Quite a light palate. Not a bad bock. Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - JAN 31, 2007

Bottle at home. Not so sure about this one. Sweet scent. Sweet, caramel and sour flavor. Sharper aftertaste. rlgk (18852) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - NOV 29, 2006
Bottle at Monks Cafe, Stochkolm. Nice amber color, offwhite head. Malty, somewhat nutty aroma. Malty and a bit sourish flavor, nutty notes and somewhat fruity. jehoey (765) - Shippensburg, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 17, 2006
So I thought that while I was here in A’dam and it is the fall that I should try some different Bocks. This one poured a dark rich brown color with a tan head that quickly disapaited. flavor was much like a wee heavy, with rich malty notes, some carmel and dried fruit. not the most enjoyable, but okay.
