(Gerardus Wittems Kloosterbier Herfstbock) First bock of the season, bottle 300 ml at home, served into a snifter, ABV 6.5% Deep mahony brown colour on the body, turning to deep ruby red when light hits it. Good sized tan head sitting on top, thick and with average retention. Aroma has lots of caramel, faint chocolate, a bit of strawberry jam, red fruits. Taste is sweet, with caramel, iron, red fruits and light alcohol. Medium thin body, notable carbonation. Slightly sticky on the palate. More than a decent one.

Bottle of 300 ml, at home. ABV is 6,5%. Poured into a snifter. Dark ruby colour, but lighter than other bocks I had this season. One finger of head, with average retention. Light lacing around the glass, mostly where the beer touches the glass. A thin layer of foam persists through the whole drinking process. The smell is where it gets really interesting. Sweet and sour at the same time. After that, a strong smell of boiled fruits, mostly sour cherries, and sugars, the way a fresh made jam smells. Taste is quite similar to the smell. Boiled fruits at first, but then becomes much more complex, some apple syrup, some herbs and spices, but I can’t really define what and which. Nice full body with light carbonation. I was looking for it for some time as it’s not so widely available at the supermarkets, at least around my area, and I’m really glad I found it. Probably on my top 5 of the bock beers I have tasted this season.

Marduk (7694) - Reval, ESTONIA - MAY 19, 2015
330ml bottle. Very dark brown color. Small size, beige head, stays. Sweet, raisins, caramel, berries, metallic, prunes in aroma. Raisins, sweet, toffee, slightly woody and lots of caramel in taste. Caramel covered prunes in aftertaste. Feels thin and boozy at the same time. But also sweet and sticky. Improves slightly as it warms up.

vidmidia (286) - Vila Velha, BRAZIL - FEB 21, 2015
Marrom, quase opaca. Espuma âmbar, abundante, de média duração. Aroma adocicado de ameixas e caramelo. Sabor de caramelo e café, com toques de ameixa. Retrogosto equilibrado com final seco e achocolatado.

ath home reddish dark brown colored body with an off white head and a fruity malt hops aroma a spicy fruity malt bitter taste with a bitter finish

MrHangover (4552) - Den Haag, NETHERLANDS - NOV 25, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear brown beer with a very nice, off white head on top that clings on the glass. Aroma is sweet, malty and quite yeasty and earthy. Flavor starts off medium bitter, crisp and transforms into a nice, sweet warming experience. Long sweet aftertaste, soft carbonation and good balance. Good stuff.

Vili (245) - FINLAND - NOV 19, 2014
Bottle. Pours dark brown with medium white head. Only a faint aroma of sweet malts and falling leaves. Taste a bit bland; good notes of caramel and orange that fade too quicly before the strange, soapy aftertaste. Feels a bit like oil in the mouth. Looks good but only satisfactory on the inside. Not bat but lacks any justification for existence.
