Clear reddish brown beer with off white creamy head. Aroma is Belgian yeast and sweet malts. Taste is belgian yeast, peary fruits, bready malt sweetness, bitterness and little sourness, with some alcohol when warming up. Medium full palate with long quite bitter finish. An interesting German-Belgian hybrid. domienS (250) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - NOV 21, 2013
pour with a lot of beige fine foam. The beer itself has a nice red color but has no saturation.
Smells fresh and floral but also a bit of sulfur IMHO.
Great taste. Nice mixture betweensweet and bitter. Zer0 (1224) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 18, 2013

Dark red color, big beige head. Sweet aroma of malt, bread, caramel, cherry, honey, some other dark fruits and spices. Taste is similar, quite dry with mild sweetness and bitterness too, hint of alcohol in finish. Medium body and strong carbonation. Very enjoyable beer. jcwattsrugger (12420) - Florida and, New Jersey, USA - NOV 16, 2013

Decent bock. alethol (133) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2013
Dark brown with a large beige head. Malty, lacks some sweetness. Therefore slightly bitter. Nice and full though. WelshMedic (3) - Ede, NETHERLANDS - NOV 9, 2013 does not count
This beer is unique in both taste and character. In terms of taste, it’s quite refreshingly dry. Not at all sweet like other bocks. It certainly the best bock I have drunk. Smurf2055 (1400) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Pours deep ruby, three finger off white head.
Smell sweet bread, caramel.
Taste smooth coco, roast, bread, belgian sweetness
Medium to light body

Darkish brown/amber pour with huge....is there a superlative that surpasses huge, head. Buttery popcorn and malt smell. Caramel, toffee and cookie also. So strange....taste doesn?t follow the smell. Right up front there?s mr. licorice and the malts. Ends up with a bitter sweet linger. Mouthfeel could have been fuller for my likings but still. Very nice beer, not experienced with bock?s but if this is an indicator for that style....bring ?m on! !!
