Fles gedeeld met peltmeister. Mooi donker bier, redelijk veel gist. Aroma is . Smaak is licht zurig met een bittertje in de nasmaak. dEnk (4200) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - OCT 7, 2013
Bottle @ home. Aroma is wet leaves, yeast (both not in a good way), nuts, molasses. Flavour is caramel, molasses and again that yeasty swampy something which really spoils it. After a while that flavour dissipates, or I just stop noticing it that much and it becomes a nice full and creamy bock with caramel, some liquorice and a spicy herbal hop note. +4 after some time/more sips, but still not a favorite. kraddel (8074) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - OCT 7, 2013

33 cl bottle sampled @ Modeste 2013. Dark amber with beige head on sides. Nose is a pretty sweet Dunkler bock with a nice amount of caramel, leaves, brown sugar & herbs. Taste is bitter candy sugar, lager taste with a good chunk of BE yeast, big presence of BE yeast & sweetness makes this feel more BE than DE, bitter herbs, bark, caramel, sweet malts,... Body is creamy, thick malts & sugar but still lager yeast. Interesting but not top take on style. Boekanier (57) - NETHERLANDS - OCT 4, 2013
Pours a clear brown beer with a small off-white head. Aroma: nice, roasted malt, dried fruit. Taste: sweet and slightly sour, finish is slightly sweet and sour, though mainly bitter. Palate: lacks a proper carbonation. Complex beer, too bad the carbonation apparently doesn’t last enough.

Bottle from Leiden. Rich chocolate and raisin nose, thick, juicy, caramel, light apple. Dark brown with reddish-orange tints and lace. Sweet, rich, chocolaty. Lots of dried fruits. Thick and full. Very nice, much more like a doppelbock, hits bigger than 6.5% not overly sweet, slightly tannic finish, good earthy bitterness in the finish to balance. Excellent.
