22 Oct 2012 in Valkenburg, Holland: Cafe De Grendelpoort is having a Bockfest and this was one of the brews on-tap. Very dark, most likely the darkest Bok I saw during my stay in Holland. The head was also the whitest I saw on a Bok this time around. The aroma and taste were of roasted but not burnt malts with red berry notes in both the smell and mouth flavours. Coffee, prunes and plums can be added to the taste thoughts as this is a complex and interesting beer. Medium bodied and easy to drink: pity there were so mant to try, or I could have stayed on this for another one or three!

UPDATED: FEB 24, 2017 It got a fruity aroma but when I taste it. The beer was a little to flat for a bockbeer. It got a medium bitterness and a little sweet but hardly to recognize. I dislike the aftertaste after a sip of beer. I expected more body and taste of this Jopen Bock 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 (680) - 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
