With Amstel the best bock beer from the big dutch brands. This one is sweeter than average, but drinks very well. Nice taste of caramel, raisins, cereal and coffee.
UPDATED: APR 19, 2017 Blijft lekker. Zorg dat ik altijd wel een flesje heb staan. Voor alle critici: ik geef toe dat het te zoet is vergeleken met de meeste bokbieren. Suiker in plaats van strafheid. Maar desondanks is het op zich een geweldig bier. 77ships (9827) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - MAR 9, 2017
500 ml. can sampled. BBF 09.08.2017. Clear deep amber, mocha head that fizzes away, big like Coca-Cola. Nose is extremely sweet metallic industrial bock, metallic very sweet children’s cough syrup, low Coca-Cola, crazy sweet leaves, so very sugary, industrial caramel. Taste is thin industrial fizzy children’s cough syrup, wine ranks, chemical caramel, stevia-like bitterness,... For industrial lager drinkers who like pointlessly stupid metallic brews but that pretty much sums up the whole Dutch bock thing. How strangely thin syrupy it is, almost mineral is what upsets me the most, its strange, stupidly industrial, some cough syrup, possibly a strong brew was diluted with water. Stevia bitterness finish, very odd industrial brew. It has its crowd but it isn’t me. Benzai apparently rated this 3.5/5. Worst kind of homerism :) jamesie1857 (2150) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - FEB 23, 2017
330ml bottle from Jumbo Alkmaar - Another disappointment. Not much in the way of nose, a bit of candy sugar and spicy muscavado. Taste is medicinal, false. At €0,86 was worth a gamble. yanko78 (1) - - DEC 27, 2016 does not count

By far the best beer to drink after summer when it’s dark and rainy outside, only thing to look forward to

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2016 Can. Clear brown with tiny white head. Aroma of brown sugar, caramel. Taste is very sweet, bread, sugar, caramel, syrup. Zlotta (3282) - Hagen / Düsseldorf, GERMANY - NOV 13, 2016
0.33 l can from AH (Sittard), best before June 2017. Clear, dark reddish brown with a medium large, frothy, slowly diminishing, off-white head. Sweetish-malty, minimally roasty aroma of caramel, brown sugar and slightly hints of nuts. Rather sweet, malty, slightly fruity taste of caramel and brown sugar, followed by a short, slightly bitter, a bit metallic finish. Almost medium-bodied, slightly effervescent mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Okay! Pongauer (87) - Maassluis, NETHERLANDS - NOV 11, 2016
A quite flat, bland brew. the foam head disappears quite instantly. there are way better herfstbocks for sale in your local grocery store.
