COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our bokbier that rings in the autumn every year. Dark and full-bodied, but not as sweet as you would expect. The fine, light brown head holds for a long time while the dark, black-brown beer releases the aromas of the roasted malt: brown sugar, caramel and beautiful, dark fruit. The aftertaste is pleasantly dry.

Dunkelbraun fast klar mit hellem Schaum. Geruch malzig mastig. Geschmack ist recht mastig mit Port-Aromen und einer brotigen Würze. Zum Abgang karamellig bitter.

Dark brown beer with not a real distinctive smell. The taste is bitter but the after taste is not quite what i expect from a bock beer. At the end, just an average bock beer wich has surprisingly one of the more expencive price tags.

Kolor miedziano rubinowy, klarowny. Be?owa, ?redniej wielko?ci piana do?? szybko si? redukuje do ko?ucha na powierzchni piwa. Aromat jest delikatnie karmelowy z mocnymi akcentami chmielowymi. Smak: delikatne nuty ziemiste a dalej jest podobnie jak w aromacie, akcenty chmielowe i karmel. Fantastycznym balansem dla karmelu jest tutaj goryczka, chmielowa, nieco trawiasta, przyzwoicie d?uga. Wysycenie ?rednie w kierunku do wysokiego. PIwo sprawia wra??nie bardzo delikatnie wodnistego.

33cl bottle at home (19 XI 2016), shared with friends while we had a little bock beer happening. A brown to orange brew with a little white foamed topping. The nose is very hoppy, with dry-ish herb lingering features. The malt aromas make me think of dried rye. The taste is likewise with a sharp edge and some hay notes. The mouthfeel even has a little mint in there as well, which is quite lovely. The taste of course hints at those sweetish, hops and little bitter hints. The sugary chocolate has some roast aspects and caramel dashes. Pretty well balanced. The backbone is not heavy, just fine, this dunkler bock’s is lovely soft - with a very modest carbonation. The ending is, as expected, dry and somehow bitter-sweet. This ’t IJ IJbok clearly is one of the better Benelux dark bock beers: A very pleasant beer sensation.
