Had this one on tap in the Groene Engel in my hometown...and was the only bock available.

A: Brown/red with a minimal lightbrown head.

S: Some roasted malts and a sign to expect an overpowering sweetness.

T: Exactly, SUGARS upfront. Roasted malts and that's about it.

M: Medium carbonation and a very light body.

D: I'll pass on the 2009 edition! But will try again in some years. These seasonal bock beers keep changing taste.

look: 4 | smell: 2 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance: Very deep, dark red. Big brown head with average retention.
Smell: Not much expect for some boiled cabbage-like smell (not very pleasant!).
Taste: Definitely malty character balanced by some bitterness. Light notes of roasting also present but overall, all flavors feel somehow subdued.
Mouthfeel: Full body, perhaps a bit too full, with a sticky feel that I don’t like. Very low carbonation.
Drinkability: Not for me. Something with the stickiness, something with the absence of (pleasant) smells, I just wouldn’t want another one

Poured it from a 33 cl. bottle into a glass on a sunny autumn afternoon, sitting on my neighbours 1900 barge. Ideal circumstances, hence.

The colour was very dark brown, ruby when held against the light. It had little foam.

The taste was a little flat, with a remote hint of spices and smoked wood.
Somewhat cowardish in the beginning, slightly bitter at the end.

Well balanced between yeast and sweet.

A fine Bock, nothing more nothing less.
