Bottle conditioned.
Brewed under direction of Hildegard van Ostaden, formerly at Van Steenberge, now at Koningshoeven - La Trappe brewery.
With its rich foam, hoppy flavour and fine bitterness, Urthel Vlaemse Bock is a special ale with a high drinkability for lovers of the authentic Flemish brewing art. Vlaemse Bock as originally brewed for the winter, but is now available in 33 cl. (330 ml./ 11.2 FL.OZ.), 75 cl. (750 ml./1 PT. 9.4 FL. OZ.) and kegs the whole year. You can only buy Urthel Vlaemse Bock in the United States. This heart-warming dubbel of 7.5% of alcohol, traditionally top fermented and bottle conditioned flamey dark ale has a tastefully rich, malty, slightly sweet flavour. Vlaemse Bock’s very fine distinctive bitterness makes you forget the long cold winter.

Ungstrup (37558) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 28, 2006
A deep red beer with a disappearing brown head. The aroma is strongly fruity, but also with light notes of alcohol, peaches, and dusty hops. The flavor is sweet with primary notes of peaches and dusty hops, leading to an end with a note of dried fruits. It lacks more body for the style.

Draught at Akkurat, Stockholm. (6.5%) Ruby colour. Roasty and raisiny. Sweet with rounded mouthfeel. Well structured malt prfile, notes of toffee and typical Urbock character (like Namibian Hansa Urbock or Aass) Grassy bitter finish. Pleasant and very well balanced.

(Bottle 33 cl) Clear, orangey brown with a creamy, off-white head. Roasted malty nose. Medium to full body with a rather solid malt profile. Sweet, roasted malts basically without bitterness. A fairly solid Bock. 060706

madmitch76 (24789) - , Essex, ENGLAND - NOV 15, 2009
26th June 2008. Clear brown beer. Fairly stock malty flavours, no bitterness to speak of. Just a slight sour tang to seperate it from the crowd.

Travlr (24656) - Charlotte, North Carolina, USA - JAN 7, 2010
Burgundy red color with a small white head that disappears quickly and leaves little to no lacing. Aroma of dark fruits and milk chocolate, with roasted malts as well. Favor is dominated by the fruit and chocolate combination, a very pleasant one, which progresses to a mildly bitter finish. Good balance and complexity. Good body. One of the best of the Urthel range.
