DijkBier (657) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2017
Clear, very dark brown, little bit ruby pour, with small crème coloured head. Aroma contains dark malts, coffee, but actually not so much more; no wood/oak for me. Taste is rather bitter, little sweet, some cacao, some fruityness, with a small late bitterness in the aftertaste, with laurel licorice. Rather light bodied and soft carbonation; bit watery. I'm not enthusiastic; I miss an important element (oak) and the taste would have gained with more body and more ABV. Lowenbrau (4815) - Asturias, SPAIN - SEP 20, 2017

As "Oak Afschot. Original Veluwe Bier".
In short: roasty dark ale.
Pours dark copper with garnet reflections. Really frothy off white head, a bit of gushing. Roasty, licorice, wood, some raisins and dried fruits nose. Medium body, average to high carbonation, slick texture. Taste is like a robust dunkel or schwarzbier, woith subtle oak notes, well balanced. Overall sweet. Pretty decent.
Bottle at Strandpaviljoen Buiten, zwarte pad, Scheveningen. Black with offwhite head. Dark roasted dark malts, chocolate, coffee, licorice, charcoal. Moderate sweet and bitter. Medium body and soft carbonation. Very soft velvety feel. Decent stuff! Feels like a deep roasted stout more than a german schwartz. Maarten1993 (1408) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 11, 2017
Drank with Patrick @Samson 11-05-17. Roast in the beginning, but watery and very thin. Not a very good beer. thanatosti (1849) - Culemborg, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2017
33 cl. bottle shared with de Molen Hopcrew @ de Molen Hopveld, Epe.
Very dark brown with an off-white head. Aroma of dark roasted malts and also some smoked malts but one of the brewers insisted they didn’t used those. Also some oak in the nose. Taste is medium bitter with some earthiness due to the malts and the oak. A pleasant surprise.

Lively bugger. Not sure if i tasted the oak much but I am loving this. This style is greatly underappreciated and not many are made in this country. Liking this a lot. On tap at De Koffer in Groningen mariuspoenari (3181) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - APR 18, 2016
33cl bottle. Dark brown with a thin tan head. Roasted malts, coffee beans, cherries, bitter cherries. Soft mouthfeel for a schwarzbier. Not bad. PeatyPete (1113) - NETHERLANDS - MAR 26, 2016
Dark brown color with light beige head. Aroma is earthy with some fruit tones. Taste of roasted malt, some fruit, some chocolate but also a bit watery. TimE (6275) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 25, 2015
Dark brown color. The nose reminds me of at a cheap nightclub on a weekday to drink copious amounts JD and coke. The mouth is a bit sour and astringent and thin bodied but still not bad, with lots of bourbon character. Chocolate malts shine. Bourbon lingers in the finish. Pretty decent for 5.5%. As it warmed up I enjoyed this less and less and it became more astringent. DwarfeD (3539) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 9, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Dark brown with almost no head. Medium body with low to moderate carbonation. Sweet and bitter tones. Dark chocolate, roasted malts, wood, bourbon and caramel. Quite a tasty brew!
