3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: JAN 30, 2007 Bottled, thanks Fukito! Dark mahogany with firm off-white head. Aroma mostly of caramelized sugar. Fairly sweet with evident caramel flavour. Medium bodied with soft mouthfeel. Thankfully the flavour of crystalized sugar does not carry over into sticky sweetness, so the beer reminds gentle and drinkable. Mildly herbal finish.

Hazy reddish brown ale with a thin off white head. Caramel aroma, with nice walnuts notes. Bery nice nutty malt in mouth, with roasted coffee notes, veering on a brown ale. Quite good. Medium bodied. On tap, May 2006.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smell has a bit of a roasted barley but the taste only follows through a little bit. There is a little sourness, but not as much as somedarker beers around Bariloche. This one’s not bad, just average. Had a bottle from the store in Bariloche.

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?

3.9 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"

3.3 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.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Dark burgundy with a thin, tan head. The aroma is malty and sweet, full of brown sugar, caramel and a light fruitiness. The nose on this is really nice. Fairly full body with nice development on the tongue. The flavor is on the sweet side, but not inherently sweet on its own. Nice malts and a hint of bitterness at the finish. Easily the best beer from this brewery, at least in my experience.

On draught at Pilgrim bar. An opaque dark brown with medium body and very clean, dark malt flavors. Very carbonated, with a evenly balanced dry/sweet overall maltiness.

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.
