Very strong after-taste was the only negative about this brew. Nice aroma, nice initial taste.

0.33 l bottle from AH (Sittard), best before September 2018. Clear, very dark reddish brown with a medium large, dense, stable, beige head. Sweetish-malty, slightly roasty aroma of caramel, chocolate and nuts. Rather sweet, malty, slightly roasty taste of chocolate, caramel, nuts and some coffee, followed by a short moderately roasty-bitter, slightly dry finish. Medium body, slightly creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay! stijnemans90 (196) - - OCT 29, 2016

Un-Muzzling Olde Muzzlehatch Ratings, #37. 330 ml bottle purchased somewhere in Ontario (July 2008), and consumed somewhere in Wisconsin (August 2009), possibly from a Christoffel glass. Very dense caramel-maple body, smallish tan head lasts throughout the imbibing, some lacing....nose is full-on caramel at first, a little licorice arrives eventually...body is thickly malty, no hops noticeable, with a light burnt bitterness to finish...unfortunately a bit of soapiness emerges towards the finish, which helps to keep this from coming anywhere close to the greatness of the pilsener...velvety-soft mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. Would certainly like to try this (or any Christoffel) again, will have to check availability!

HOME 20160703 (33 cl bottle; bbf 07.09.17, by the Proefbrouwerij): A brilliant red-brown coloured bier with a good, perfect brown foam layer. The aroma is from dark cara-malt which give the beer a sweet caramel, malt bitter, somewhat chocolate, cherry and nuts smell. A sweet taste (somewhat to much) of caramel, chocolate, liquor, raisins, cherries and raisins. A malty bitterness in the aftertaste. Also a warm alcoholic feeling. The beer becomes sticky with a light malt bitter dryness which give the beer not the really aftertaste, what you will expect. MichaelAwesome (6516) - Wanne-Eickel, GERMANY - JUN 10, 2016
Really nice and warming with some coffee, caramel, sweets and chocolate in the aroma. Oh yeah, beside some nuts. Easy to drink, quaffy and making you just feel good after a long and busy day. To recommend. Gangstergafje (1093) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - MAY 2, 2016
What a lovely beer. It isn’t a Vick beer to me, it is an autumn Bock stout infusion. The looks are quite nice. The color of the beer is a beautiful dark brown, almost black, oat first sight. When seen in adequate light, the beer unveils a beautiful rather reddish amber glow. The beer pours a massive amount of soft almond colored foam. The foam layer is perfect and fils the glass till the top. The bulk of the foam collapses rather quickly, only to leave a tiny drape of foam. The beer itself is very cloudy. The looks are normal for a bock, but this ends when you take a smell. The smell is much more like a stout, so I automatically love it. There is a delicious strong aroma of roasted barley. This bitter aroma is accompanied by a lovely oaky aroma. There are also some licorice and syrup aromas, to blend in a little sweetness. The smell is in real good balance and is quite strong. The roast aroma comes flying towards you. There is also a nice touch of alcohol in it. The smell is dead on stout. It has a delicious toasty and toasty baked barley flavor. This gives a rich bitter flavor to the beer. This bitterness is balanced by a syrup and candy sugar like sweetness, with a touch of fruity hops. The sweetness of the bock and the bitterness of a stout, what a genius combination. The sweetness fils the front of the mouth, whilst the bitterness fils the back. The finish is amazing. It starts with the remainder of the sweetness and slowly becomes more and more bitter and roasty. The beer has nice little gas bubbles. If the bubbles were slightly bigger and stingier, the palate would have been even better.
