Was very curious to try this organic bok beer. This one was new to me.

A: A beautiful dark red/brown color and a light brown head.

S: Roasted malts, caramel, some dark fruits and something veggie.

T: Dark roasted malts, caramel, hints of apple/pear and a light bitterness.

M: Thin body and medium carbonation. Rather dry finish.

D: This not really a bok beer imho. It's more in the direction of a stout. Too watery for my taste. Will not refuse if offered.

A dark brown, almost black beer with a dense, creamy head.

Smell is very roasted with tobacco and molasses notes. A pungent cooked vegetable smell is spoiling the entire smell.

Taste is very roasted which gives the beer a maltbitterness that does not fit the style, which is a Dutch bock. Together with tobacco and molasses this beer is strange. The cooked vegetables taste is here too and makes me want to drain this beer. This taste does not grow on me and I put it on the bar. Next!

A colleague of mine brought this beer with him, so why refuse...Poured into a sniffer. The beer pours a dark-brown (less ruby compared to other Bockbeers) with a light brown head that disappeared while I blinked my eyes, leaving a messy lacing.

Smell: very sweet caramel, maple syrup, roasted malts, grain and cabbage.

Taste: This beer has a very short taste. Very sweet caramel and roasted malts quickly followed by a slightly bitter and spicy hoppy aftertaste that didn't last for a second. In the aftertaste there was also a bit smooked taste present.
Mouthfeel: Medium-light bodied, medium carbonation.

Overall: Not great, just below average for the style. Will not refuse one in the future

Serving type: bottle

Organische bock met karamel smaak. Goed geslaagd. Na een aantal slokken begint deze steeds beter te bevallen.
