Opaque ruby brown, small creamy tan head, mostly diminishing, fair lacing. Aroma roasted malts, licorice, dried dark fruits, sugar syrup. Taste light heavy to medium sweet, medium bitter, roasted malts, toffee, chocolate, with long duration. Bittersweet roasty finish, chocolate notes, medium body, oily to creamy texture, average carbonation. Not your typical bock but a nice brew.
Bottle @ home. Quite beautiful deep dark amber color, average sized beige head. Aroma is malts, caramelish, caramelised sugars. Taste malts, a bit sweet-bitter, again some caramel and lightly some sugars. Medium body, decent to medium carbonation.

Original review text: Bottle stared at tasting. Lightly unclear medium dark amber color, small off-white head. Aroma is malts, caramel, lightly some chocolate perhaps. Flavor is malts, again some caramel and light chocolate and some bitterness. Not bad. I like it this time.
Dunkler, kernig getreidiger und moderat süßer Beginn. Minimal röstig, dunkel, Nuancen von Schokolade, steigende Intensität. Schokoladig-karamelliger, eher trockener Abgang, etwas Alkohol. 10/9/10/10/9/10
33cl Bottle from AH. Red-brown colour, beige head. Aroma of grain, caramel, amber malts, hint of vomit. Flavour is medium sweet, malty, amber malts, hint of iron, caramel, watery bitterness, some roast, light fruity. Light bodied. Belgian amber sold as a bock imho.
At Maakun’s. Dark brown with nice creamy head. Sweet roasted malts, dusty dades and figgs, bit of speculaas, dry autumn leaves. Sweet and dry. Body is medium, carbo average. There appears to be no room for bocks in my otherwise generous heart. But this is quite alright.
Bottle shared at home. Dark reddish brown with creamy beige head. Figs, raisins, caramel and toffee, sweet malts, dried apple, plums, brown sugar, toast. Under medium sweet and bitter. Medium bodied. Pretty decent bok.
Bottle shared thanks to Deanso. Pours clear amber brown with a medium cream head. Aroma of toffee, caramel, malt, overripe dark fruit and raisin. Flavour is over moderate sweet and moderate bitter. Medium bodied with soft carbonation.
0.33 l bottle from ’Marqt’, best before October 2016. Clear, deep red with a medium large, foamy, almost stable, tan to brown head. Roasty, fruity-malty aroma of dark chocolate, coffee beans, raisins and brown sugar. Sweetish, fruity-malty taste of raisins, prunes and nuts, followed by a short, slightly bitter and roasty finish of dark chocolate and coffee beans. Medium body, slightly oily to creamy mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Well-balanced, not that sweet bock with prominent chocolate and coffee aromas. Very nice!
