A nice and complex bock, with an aftertaste that is strong, bitter and lingers on for a while. MelvinKalksma (1722) - 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 (2235) - 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. gyhallmanti (666) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 11, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Pours a dark brown colour with a tan head. Aroma of candied sugar, plums, brown sugar, malts. Taste is sweet with a medium sweet finish. Notes of herbs, dried fruit, caramel, malts. Texture is sticky with average carbonation. A bit too unbalanced for my taste.

Bottle - Dark reddish brown colour, large but collapsing tan head, lacing. Aroma of cough syrup, herbs, candies, red fruits, dried plum. Taste is very sweet with caramael, candy, herbal hops, dried red fruits. Quite complex, but for me its a bit off-balanced, its too sweet for me. Medium to full body, soft carbonation, sticky texture. Not bad. sjorsvdg (587) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 15, 2015
Dit bokbier is niet heel bijzonder t.o.v. sommige soortgenoten. Geur is licht koffieachtig. Smaak: koffie, tarwe en rijpe vruchten. Niet heel vol van smaak, maar goed te drinken. ruuurd (304) - Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - NOV 7, 2015
Maybe I'm to much of a Chouffe fan, but this is delicious! Brown, dark, sweet, spicy yet refreshing. SimonBlok (765) - GRONINGEN, NETHERLANDS - OCT 25, 2015

750 ml. bottle split by 2 @ ’t Antwaerps Bierhuyske. BBF 09/2014 – quite an old bottle. Very dark brown, ruby, solid tanned head. Nose is metallic with heavy sugary cough syrup & herbs. Taste is metallic herbal syrup, metallic, thinned, sugar, nuts, banana,… Body is thinned, bit metallic. Light odd notes seemingly caused by age. This one is a bit ravaged but still nice.
