3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
600 mL bottle. Pours dark copper with a thick white cap. Sweet malty nose, rye, orange, honey, mint or thyme like woodsy herbs. Slight sweetness balanced by hop and a touch of acidity. Moderate to full carbonation with an above average body. Quite tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours a clear copper, and a large whit head. Aroma notes include orange peel, citrus, banana, herbal. Tasting notes include vegetables, orange peel, slight cinnamon, thick palate feel, and a medicinal finish. Definitely lives up to its description, heavy herbal palate in this beer! Does not taste like your everyday Bock!!

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
600 ml bottle from LCBO. Pours a clear copper colour with small, light tan head. Aroma is quite bready with fruit and mellow spicing. Flavour is also big on bready malt with sweet fruit and ginger. No peppermint though. Average plus body. Solid.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Single at the LCBO. Pours a clean deep amber colour with a frothy warm cap, good retention and creamy thick lacing. Spicy nose with lots of bread malt notes. Eventually, fruits come out, like oranges with some light alcohol in the background. Rye bread taste with a mild sweetness and a little yeast in the finish. The spices are not as strong in the flavours and that is too bad. Still, an overall easy-drinking bock. Note: the peppermint seems controlled to previous version of this brew. I do not feel it.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours deep marmalade with a slight frosting for a cap. Well if this ain’t just an odd little brew: sugar & spice is the theme here. Pour one of these goats & you’ll get breakfast jam, mint tea, honey & hints of juniper. I’m confused: do I drink this after dinner on a Saturday night or before work on Wednesday morning?

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
600ml bottle. Hazy brown/orange colour with a large off-white head. Some rye peppery malt, but mostly mint in the aroma. Tastes a bit better than it smells, rye malt, clove, dark fruit, but still mostly mint. Overall, there were things I liked about this, and things I didn’t. I’d like to try it without the mint.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle [650ml] shared at Burger Bar w/ garthicus & HogTownHarry -- c/o HogTownHarry. Feb. 4. Pours a cloudy orange-amber with small foamy off-white head. Aroma is sugary sweet, fruity and kind of odd, but not in a bad way (must be the peppermint), quite spicy too. Flavour of spices, herbs and malt along with some sugary sweetness and honey. Average to medium bodied. Pretty good, it’s not something I’d want a lot of but it’s nice to share.
