Pours a deep clear amber on tap with thick fluffy tan head that leaves good lace. Aroma of sweet dark maltiness and mild fruity yeast. Taste follows, hints of dark burnt sugar and light yeast. Solid bock. R4N5H (1289) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 9, 2016
33cl bottle poured into a La Chouffe stemmed tulip glass on 09-Oct-2016. Dark brown with a medium sized tan coloured head which dissipates quickly. Aroma of dark fruit, malt, banana, spices and Belgian yeast. Medium body and carbonation. Sweet taste of caramel, wheat, banana, cinnamon and plum. Light bitterness. A sweet tart finish. There are better Bokbiers out there - this one is a little too sweet and tart for my palate. Cerbier (836) - - OCT 8, 2016

33 cl bottle, served in snifter glass. Poured clear reddish brown with a two finger light tan head. aroma: caramel, wet earth, vanilla, milk chocolate. Taste: caramel, roasted malts, vanilla, nuts, spice, Belgian yeast, bread. Very watery. Not much going on here. Light body with a malty sweet finish. Not the best Chouffe or bok that I had.

The beer has a nice bok beer look. The beer pours a thick layer of fluffy almond colored foam. The majority of the foam collapses over time, but a rather thick layer of soft creamy foam remains on top of the beer. The beer has a nice brown color. I can’t see the color of clarity very good, because I’ve poured the beer in a stone La Chouffe cup. The smell of the beer is very nice. The smell has a delicious typical bok aroma. It is both sweet and bitter. I smell a delicious combination of roasted barley, some licorice, caramel and toffee. The bitterness of the roast and licorice is in good balance with the caramel sweetness. Combine this with a minimal sour touch of the licorice and you have wow. The beer also had a good load of alcohol. This gives the beer that typical warming sensation a good bock beer should have. The taste has many aspects of the smell. It is slightly less strong though. There is the little roast and sweet caramel and toffee. The licorice is almost not tastable. The mouth sensation, and than especially the aftertaste, is a bit dry. This is a bit disappointing. The taste and mouth feeling don’t comply with the smell. Besides that, a very nice beer. BenWesthof (196) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 7, 2016
A nice and complex bock, with an aftertaste that is strong, bitter and lingers on for a while. MelvinKalksma (1683) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 4, 2016

Medium aroma of malts, caramel, Belgian yeast, dark fruit, bread and spices.
Turbid/opaque ruby/black beer with a medium beige head.
Starts medium/heavy sweet with malts, caramel, Belgian yeast and dark fruit; ends slightly bitter and dry with bread and spices.
This beer is rather intense, complex and balanced. Great sweet start with a decent dark fruity flavour. Still manages to be rather complex despite the ominous sweetness. Great for its style indeed.
Eindelijk thuis na hele dag Prael, Koelie, Craft&Draft, Paradiso. Over slechte plannen gesproken, trek deze ook nog open ben ik er vanaf. Smaakt naar kastanjes en herfstgezeik. Backlog from 2015/11/01. JorgeLee (2193) - Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 16, 2015
On tap at In De Wildman. Deep brown colour. Rich, sweet, prunes, raisins, warm bread. Very soft palate. Pleasant yeast. Bitter and fizzy enough to be drinkable, just. Very pleasant.
