COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Upon their arrival in Bavaria, beers brewed in Einbeck were much appreciated. In the Bavarian pronunciation, "Einbeck bier!" became "Eine bock bier!" (One bock beer!). This type of malty lager took the name bock. The billy-goat (bock in German) became its symbol. L’Entêté is inspired by the traditionally darker dunkel bocks of Bavaria. Its well perceived toasted malt notes along with a slightly caramelized touch gives L’Entêté a nice mouthfeel that will satisfy the malty beer amateur. Its continental noble hops balance the flavors without bringing much bitterness. Prost!

Lubiere (10139) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 26, 2013
A reddish amber bock with a thin mocha head. In aroma, nutty and chalky malt with mash tun notes. In mouth, a smooth nutty malt with grassy character and mineral notes. Bottle at Festibière de Gatineau, May 26, 2013.

MartinT (7952) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 3, 2012
My Bottom Line:
Wooden hops and Munich malts’ candied fruit angles converge onto an earthy aftertaste in this well-made but ultimately unmemorable Dunkler Bock.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A creamy sheet of foam decorates the clear mahogany.
-The soft mouthfeel increases drinkability, which is quite high for the style.
-This is on the dry side for a Dunkler Bock, imho.
-The flavor profile is balanced.
-Malts could be a bit more expressive.
-Mineral edges appear here and there.

Bottle.

Bouteille de 500 ml achetée chez La Barik (Trois-Rivières, QC). Arôme: Légère odeur de céréales grillées avec une pointe de caramel. Apparence: La couleur est cuivrée foncée avec une faible densité de bulle. Présence d’un moyen col mousseux et d’une large dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût de caramel avec une pointe de noix et d’houblons. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement onctueuse. Faible effervescence en bouche. Légère présence de caramel en arrière goût. (Rating #4669)

Boutip (4775) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle: Poured a deep brown color bock with a large foamy head with good carbonation and light lacing. Aroma of caramel malt that is dryer then expected with some light spicy notes. Taste is dryer again then expected with a spicy finish which appears to originate from the malt. Body is about average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. Interesting and while not being unpleasant the spicy notes are somewhat surprising.

solidfunk (4168) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 9, 2012
Good smell of malt here with some aromas of spice. A little roast as well and some caramel. Pours mahagony with some good creamy foam and a little lacing. Taste leaves with a little sweetness and a little bitterness. Decent, drinkable beer. 500 ml bottle thanks to Boutip.

SlovakSniper (3226) - Out Of This World, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2012
Un liquide qui présente une robe fortement cuivrée et limpide. Un anneau comme simple représentation mousseuse. Un nez de grains grillés assujettis à des parfums de caramel et de sucre d’orge qui affichent, cependant, une certaine retenue. Des saveurs qui permettent l’éclosion de notes douces contenues par des flaveurs de grains grillés. Tout compte fait, un goût qui suit les arômes. Une bouche de moyenne densité et des bulles qui finissent par piquer la langue. Une texture qui réussit à être légèrement huileuse. Un arrière-goût essentiellement malté.

rodenbach99 (3183) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 12, 2012
Bouteille de 500ml. Ce Bock foncé a une belle robe de couleur noisette avec une mousse beige durable. Elle m’a suivi tout au long de la dégustation. Le nez est de malt Munich, de noix, de grain grillé. En bouche le liquide offre de belles notes grillées, le corps est moyen. Il y a un drôle d’amertume. Elle manque de digestibilité. 5/10

Eructoblaster (3056) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 16, 2012
Bottle - 500ml. Dark brown body with a fair off-white frothy head. Decent malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar and grainy hints. Its robust malty/hoppy taste carries sweet, fruity, and some subtle woody notes. Ends with a warming bittersweet finish. Not bad at all.

probstblueribbon (2944) - Nepean, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 13, 2013
500 ml bottle from Broue Ha Ha, served cool in a tulip glass. 12NO12.

App.: Beautiful deep ruby-copper with a nice orange-tan head. Aroma: Extremely metallic, iron, oddly fruity, a touch infected, bad. Palate: Medium body, very relaxed effervescence. Flav.: Still metallic, some decent malts, a touch of infection, a little burnt sugar, messy; dry with more bitterness than appropriate (my opinion), and a not terrible dark/almost burn malt finish.

Looked great. Looks aren’t everything.
