Has the typical Jopen molasses flavor and smell like with Koyt and Meesterstuk beers etc But this one has more burnt malts and dark bitter flavors, not as sweet. I like the burnt / smokey undertone with the medium sweet caramel, molasses and candy sugar to balance it out. Has good body to it. Good beer.

Bottle shared. Dark brown pour, hazy, with a thin tan head. Notes of roasted malts, chocolate, dried fruit, sugar and a light metallic sensation. Medium body and carbonation and a bitter-sweet finish.

hauxe (478) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - NOV 5, 2016
Pours reddish brown from the bottle and leaves a thick, foamy head that quickly subsides. Mild aroma of roasted grain with a light red berry undertone. Taste is smokey, bittersweet, with both chocolate and coffee undertones. Bittersweet may be a bit generous of a term. Bitterness is there, and sweetness too, but the meshing is less than perfect. Overall lighter than most German bocks and with a finish that trends grainy and smokey instead of rich and sweet. Good, but I would not seek it out again.

Bock is not really my thing, but this one I could drink more often! Smoky-sweet taste, jopen mouthfeel, a little dry finish but a nice complex aftertaste
