Bosbouw (3004) - Gemonde, - NOV 18, 2013
Donkere caramelrode kleur met aardige kraag. Zoete geur, caramel rood fruit. Smaakt eveneens zoet, caramel. Standaard bock.

Mpuntmuts (269) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2017
Dark brown ruby pour with mediocre head. Mild malty and caramel aroma. Similar taste but pretty damn sweet. Also some roasted flavors here. Medium to full body and soft to medium carbonation. Not all bad, just very sweet.

Positief verrast met de 2017 editie. Mooi donkere robijn kleur. Zoetige kruidige geur en smaak. Je proeft de gerookte malt. Sterker nog het heeft een turfrokerig smaak over zich wat ik zeker waardeer. Wel heel zoet voor een bockbier maar hee ik hou ook van honingzoete trippels. Dus deze tarwebok is wel aan me besteed. Overall zacht zoet, ook in de nasmaak met een lichte bitter. Maar zoals gezegd die rokerige smaak maakt dat deze bock bij mij zo goed valt. 7-4-7-3-15

culchiem (4151) - Berlin, GERMANY - OCT 5, 2017
Bottle in Amsterdam. Dark caramel with a thin head. Aroma of sweet bock malt. Flavour is malty alcohol, sweet bock, dark fruit, middle of the road style German double bock, not bad.

Not a big fan of this beer. Tried for the first time in Utrecht in 2007 (first time I ever drank beer at a film, actually) and it more or less ruined the style for me. Cloyingly sweet, lots of malty caramelly character.

Toch een bokbier dat ik regelmatig gedronken heb. Beetje zoet, maar dat vond ik wel aangenaam. Mooie donkere kleur, goed schuim.

GuideDogSaint (1748) - 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 (467) - 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 (199) - 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 (2854) - 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 (929) - Oirschot, NETHERLANDS - APR 7, 2017
Flesje thuis gedronken. Robijnrood helder bier. Aroma van perzik. Smaak is zoet en waterig. Weinig nasmaak, geen boddy.
