Way too sweet bock beer. Tastes like licorice water, very nasty. They should change this. worldbeertaste (1818) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 7, 2014
Deep dark brown with a red tint and a thin, disappearing, tan head. Smells of soft roast, toasted malt, caramel, malt extract, and raisin. Sort of nice sort of chemical. Medium oily body. Tastes of soft roast, with a bitter sort of malty extract finish. The finish is dry and bitter. Sort of chemical and after a bit I couldnt drink anymore.

Tap at some Irish pub in Amsterdam. Not much to say here. An absolute bucket load of toffee and bland stale malts. Very boring and the excessive carbonation really punches at you. Meh androman (2802) - Maarssen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 22, 2013
30cl bottle @ home. Reddish nearly black color, brownish medium head. Aroma caramel, dark fruits, slightly coffee and cocoa. Taste light sweetness, medium bitterness. Medium body, lively carbon, medium fine bitter finish. This is a tasty bock bear.

Very dark, almost black, dark-red beer with a caramel-brown layer of foam. A sweet aroma with the touch of alcohol. It also has a sweet taste, and in my opinion a bit to sweet. This hangs on in the aftertaste.
Erg donker, tegen het zwarte aan, donkerrood bier met een caramelbruine kraag. Een licht zoetig aroma met de toets van alcohol. Ook de smaak is zoet, en in mijn mening eigenlijk té. Ook blijft het zoete in de nasmaak hangen. kraddel (8888) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - NOV 29, 2013
Draft at restaurant

Smell and taste are metallic , bit sweet , bit earthy . Nott too intence though .. Juni88 (84) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 27, 2013
Full flavor. Nice balance between sweet and bitter. But most of all: very drinkable, without being special. Maarten1993 (1355) - Nijmegen, NETHERLANDS - NOV 23, 2013
UPDATED: OCT 4, 2015 Not a lot of carbonation. Smells neutral. However, drinks very nice, no bad touches and sweetness and alcohol, but not complex or deep.
