Gangstergafje (1358) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2015
The beer looks very nice. The beer is clear and has a reddish brown glow. The color is a beautiful ruby red. The beer is lighter than most bock beers. The beer forms quite a little bit of rough foam. The little bit of foam that does form has an almond color. The foam disappears quickly and a very small amount of rough foam remains on top of the beer. It’s a pity the foam isn’t thick and creamy. The smell is nice, but quite mild. I smell a little fresh hoppy note. I also smell some delicious sweet caramel aroma’s. This forms a very good contrast with the little hoppyness. There is also a little toasty aroma. The taste has the same nice flavors. I taste a little roast flavor, together with caramel. There is also a minimal chocolate hint. The beer has a nice fresh hoppy note. This is a beautiful contrast with the dark autumn flavors. The beer has a nice alcohol taste als wel. It’s a delicious bock beer.

The beer has a beautiful color. The color is a combination between ruby red and dark brown. It is beautiful. The beer pours a nice layer of almond colored foam. The most of the foam collapses and a thin foam drape remains. I miss a thick creamy foam layer, more beer should have that. The smell of the beer is quite mild. I smell a tiny bit of metal. Besides I smell a delicious sweet fall like aroma. There is caramel, golden syrup, a little licorice. There are all these nice dark aroma’s. The smells are very good for an autumn beer. There is also some fruit in the smell and a refreshing hop aroma. The taste is very nice. The beer has a decent bitterness. I taste a nice amount of alcohol. The beer gives a warming sensation in the mouth. There is a little bit of fresh hops on the background. There is also caramel and syrup in the taste. This beer definitely is one of the better bok beers around. It is perfect for the autumn.

Bottle courtesy of Deanso. Poured a clear medium to light brown with a a thin broken, off white head. The aroma is rotten vegetables. The flavour is moderate bitter, light sweet with a woody, hop bitter palate and a lingering bitter finish. Medium to light bodied with average carbonation.

Bottle 30 cl from Lidl. Abbey beer from Gulpener. In comparison with Gulpener it has a very roasted taste. A bit sweeter than Gulpener but not too sweet. The 6.5% alcohol is not too much, which I like. Decent Abbey beer.

Sixpack gekocht bij DirckIII. Ondergistend. Dit bier smaakt zacht en is niet te zoet. De alcohol is goed verborgen. De smaak is uitstekend in balans. Dit is wel het beste bockbier van dit seizoen.

Koelschtrinker (22078) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - OCT 3, 2015
Deutlich süß malziger Antrunk, röstig. Die Karamelligkeit wirkt künstlich, trocken. Süffig, nett. 9/10/9/8/9/9
Earlier Rating: 5/23/2011 Total Score: 3.1
Süßer aber nicht übertriebender Malzantrunk. Etwas schokoladenmalzig, weich, aber auch etwas wässrig. So ist das Bier ausgewogen, könnte aber noch intensiver sein. Erst spät wird das Bier würzig, langt dann aber richtig zu. Störend ist bei der herben Unterstützund der Kräuternoten aber die Süße, die zwar einerseits die Wässrigkeit verdrängt, andererseits aber so schmeckt, als seit das Bier nicht langegenug gelagert worden. Isngesamt gut. 8/9/10/9/10/9

[email protected] (2000), 30 cl. Head: quick shrinking beige foam. Colour: ruby red. Aroma: almost none, glue. Taste: some bitter, sour. Palate: thin, medium CO2, light body. Overall: just for fun. *** 2014 edition *** Aroma has improved, but still not one of the best.

gyhallmanti (809) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - OCT 2, 2015
33cl bottle at home. Pours a clear dark brown with a decent head. Aroma’s of caramel, fruit like strawberry. Taste is sweet and a bit irony with notes of caramel and something fruity. Medium body with not too lively but decent carbonation.
