Bottle at home, 300 ml. Into a snifter. ABV 7%
Pours a nice red brown colour on the body, with almost two fingers of light beige head. Low retention, it does leave though a thin film on the surface and light lacing on the glass.
Aroma is of stewed fruits, glue, nail paint.
Taste is fruity, sweet, at least at first.On the finish it gets some roasted malts, light chocolate, caramel and turns to a nice bitterness with good long duration.
Very dry palate, average carbonation, medium thin body.
Pretty good actually, I was expecting much less but it proved me wrong, always happy when that happens. omhper (25568) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - AUG 28, 2014

bottle from Bierkoning - Danke! Hazy brown colour, mid-sized beige head. Caramel, walnuts, marzipane - with a surprising hoppy punch in the finish. Very nice. Christian (13807) - Odense, DENMARK - MAR 17, 2012

Bottled. Deep amber colour, small beige head. Aroma is rather sweet ripe fruits, mild alcohol and sweet malts. Flavour is raisins, mild spruce, some spices and sweet malts. Quite nice flavour, but the aroma was way too sweet.

750ml Flasche. Ins Glas ergießt sich ein rötlichbraunes Bier, beim Einschänken entsteht extrem viel Schaum, dieser ist cremig und leicht bräunlich. Geruch röstmalzig, Karamell, dunkle reife Früchte. Geschmack sehr röstmalzig, Kaffee, bitter schokoladig, reife Früchte, viel Kohlensäure. bierkoning (13615) - La Tropica/Doarp, NETHERLANDS - OCT 13, 2010
Bottle. Brown color, paler as most Dutch bocks. Soft maltaroma with vegetable notes. Malty dryish roasty flavor. Medium bodied. Some earthy notes. Quite likeable bock, more German than Dutch. goozen (4122) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - NOV 26, 2010
Bottle 0,33ltr: An Dutch commisioned brew in Germany, so the beer taste more like an German Doppelbock. Dark clear brown brew with an bitter taste, like the German way and the Dutch way thats sweeter. JanEric (1244) - Meppel, NETHERLANDS - NOV 4, 2012
