Bosbouw's rating

Bosbouw (2899) - Gemonde, - NOV 18, 2013
Donkere caramelrode kleur met aardige kraag. Zoete geur, caramel rood fruit. Smaakt eveneens zoet, caramel. Standaard bock.

GuideDogSaint (1399) - Xiamen, CHINA - JUN 14, 2017
330ml bottle from an import shop in Xiamen. Pours dark reddish brown with a thin white head. Aroma of malt and toffee, slightly metallic. Sweet caramel taste. Sweet finish.

MarcoBasile (284) - DENMARK - JUN 7, 2017
It pours deep brown-ish/amber. Quickly vanishing beige head. The aroma is malty, slightly roasty, brown sugar, coffee and hops. Taste is caramelized malts, brown sugar, sugary coffee with little to no bitterness. Semi gloss on the lips. Watery to oily mouthfeel, thin body, soft carbonation.

blariacum (97) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - MAY 15, 2017
Fles. Altijd een van de mindere boks gevonden. Vooral een poging hem sterk van smaak te maken, maar er zitten weinig smaakverrassingen in.

gripweed57 (2308) - Hamilton Square, New Jersey, USA - MAY 3, 2017
From old tasting notes. Deep reddish brown color. Huge rocky beige head. Soft malty aroma lacks intensity. Sweet roasted malt flavor is reminiscent of a German Doppelbock. Rich and malty with an obvious alcohol presence. Very good and interesting.

Inoven (695) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2017
Flesje thuis gedronken. Robijnrood helder bier. Aroma van perzik. Smaak is zoet en waterig. Weinig nasmaak, geen boddy.

DijkBier (375) - AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2016
Clear reddish darkbrown pour with a lightbrown head, that quickly diminishes. Aroma of roasted malts, sweetness of caramel/cacao. Taste same, rather sweet, followed by a light bitterness. It’s OK, but not special and quite plain.

R4N5H (1166) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 24, 2016
33cl bottle at the Blooming Hotel, Bergen NL on 21-Nov-2016. Clear dark brown colour with a beige coloured head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, sugar and spices. Medium body and carbonation. Sweet and heavy. Lots of caramel, molasses, dark fruit and clove. Bittersweet sticky finish. Not a great bok.

Bijl (600) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 6, 2016
Robijnrood, helder, crèmekleurige schuimkraag die snel inzakt. Aroma: Graan zoetig, karamel, moutig, bruine suiker. Smaak: Licht geroosterde zoete mouten, bruine suiker, karamel, granig, iets kruidig en licht bitter... maar vooral te zoet. Lichte body, waterig, afdronk zoet en plakkerig. Niets bijzonders.

Maakun (5402) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2016
Bottle shared thanks to sjogro. Clear brown with small beige head. Lots of caramel and sugar, light fried banana, raisins. Mostly just straight up sugar. Very sweet and light metallic bitter. Medium bodied. Bad.

sjogro (3954) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2016
Sampled from bottle at home. Clear caramel brown with light tan head. Sweet malts, light roasted malts, caramel, toffee, barley, cloves, bitter spices, Heineken pils. Sweet as hardcandy sweets, light to medium bitter. Medium body, quite slick with strong carbonation. Bittersweet finish. Very sweet and little love, nonetheless it’s less terrible than I feared.
