3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet milk chocolate creaminess is the predominant note here, with a satisfying mouthfeel, moderate hop bitterness, and palate-coating sweet finish. Very nicely done.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very tasty bock, pouring a deep brown body with a foamy tan head. The aroma is sweet, almost like wort, with the slightest touch of hop bitterness at the edges. This is creamy, or perhaps it just seems that way because of the rich, milk chocolate flavor that predominates. There’s a lightly roasted barley here, too, along with some coffee. It’s got a sticky sweet finish, but not cloyingly so. Why isn’t something like this imported from South America?

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle - July 2005
Frothy beige head - medium lasting. The appareance is brownish black. Aroma is faint and i cant discern anything. Flavour begin slightly sour and ends with the thypicall chocolaty and warming afterstaste of bocks....
Funny, the aftertaste is something like bitter chocolate because of the combination of flavors. The brew is nice, but I prefer their Pilsner. Maybe sometime in the future i will give it another chance.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
the following are my notes in my journal from my recent visit there: "... the Bock - the verdict is just in: nice, medium dark brown, w/ hints of yellow & of course hazy; aroma: malty, toasty, roasty, clean; flavor: (wow! I’m digging this a lot sitting out here on their patio in front) negligible flavor/aroma hops, a bit roasty, toasty, something a little putrid the score 7/10"

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Full choc/mocha aroma, deep deep red in colour. Chocolate flavour predominates the thin palate. Tasty but not entirely satisfying.
