Unclear, mahogany body under an off-white head. Moderate malt roastiness to the nose. Dried, dark fruits giving way to notes of coffee and caramel malts. Medium to full bodied. A very well made Bock (EBF, 13.09.2008). Papsoe (25062) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 30, 2008
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2008 Bottle 75 cl. Comes as "De Molen Borefts Turf Bock 2008". Pours very cloudy and opaque orangey brown with a dense and creamy beige head leaving some lacework. Aroma of roasted malt. Medium body, sweetish roasted malt but quite surprisingly also burned malts and an ashy edge. The finish is dry with a slightly ashy malt bitterness. A very atypical Bock. 241208

(On tap) Hazy, muddy golden with a rough off-white head. Malty aroma with some alcohol. Medium body with sweetish roasted malt but appears a little tired on my palate. Dry and lightly bitter finish. For once a disappointing De Molen.6/2/6/3/11=2.8 120908
(Draught@Brewery) Dark reddish brown with a medium head. Pleasant aroma of coffee, cocoa, and dark chocolate. Very roasted-malty, slightly burned flavor with coffee, licorice, some caramel and hop bitterness. Medium body with soft carbonation. An enjoyable and balanced, maybe slightly too burned bock. I wonder if this is the regular bock renamed - but on the other hand, it was much more roasty and burned than the one at EBF.austone (1062) - Turku; Pori, FINLAND - SEP 25, 2008

(Draught) Very hazy chocolate brown with a medium, firm head. Toffee-caramely-malty aroma, somewhat unclean, a bit sewery. Smoothly malty, toffeeish, lightly roasty flavor with coffee notes. Medium to full body, very soft carbonation. The aroma was not very tempting, but flavor and overall smoothness saved it. A very nice bock.
Draught at EBF. Murky brown, firm beige head. Stables, dogs, chocolate and nuts on the nose. Smooth nutty, lightly spicy flavor, some liquorice and bitter cocoa. Medium bodied, lightly alcoholic palate. Definitely not your typical bock. Theis (15152) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 23, 2008

Deep ambery red colour, not much head. Aroma is fruits, mild smoked wood as well as quite strong maltyness. Flavour is mildly roasted malts, some wood as well as mild fruityness. Wellbalanced. Bready and caramelly as for the finish and aftertaste.
On tap @ Ølbaren. Pours a hazy reddish brown with a tanned diminishing head. Very malty. with strong aromas of lightly roasted malts. Lots of caramel aromas too. Very low carbonation. Medium bodied. Dry and very malty finish. faroeviking (10988) - Citizen above universe pendejo, FAROE ISLANDS - SEP 21, 2008
Draught. Nice hazy amber brown colour. Aroma of caramel and toasty malt and hops. Good mouthfeel. The flavour has a good toasty maltiness with caramel, some alcohol, hops and a soft bitter finish. Dedollewaitor (16178) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 20, 2008
Tap at EBF. Completely muddy amber with a creamy stable head. Some roast, caramel, butter & bread. Hops in the end. Ok! JorisPPattyn (10026) - Ursel, BELGIUM - SEP 19, 2008
UPDATED: SEP 30, 2008 Draught Off-white head, hazy red-amber. Bready notes, sweet & earthy, point of liqueur as well, nuts-liqueur. Earthy, leafy, very classical Bock-flavours. Chocolate on the palate. Smooth, well-bodied, some alcohol. Classical Bock, exactly at the opposite side of the spectrum as their Double Bock.
