473ml can. Clear deep dark red with a thin foamy off-white head. Flavors are bread, cherry, plum, raisin, molasses and roasted malts with spicy and nutty notes. A bit medicinal and metallic at times. Medium body, soft carbonation, smooth texture.

Strong beer. Bitter, and taste of chocolate lingers in the mouth. Very malty. Mollasses. Moderate carbonation. Fairly heavy. It might be good for a sample of Bock. Better to sip, not to gulp.
Bock is a strong lager of Munich origin in 17C.

Can from the LCBO. Pours a clear dark brown. Nose is full of sweet malt, apples, pears some white wine. Same for taste has some toffee, caramel, banana, bread, brown sugar. Thicker feel. Really nice, probably the best I’ve had from Creemore.

The colour on this beer is absolutely fantastic, though it’s sorely lacking in head (amen to that) and retention. Nose is mostly caramel and...dirt. But good dirt. Fresh dirt. Oh. The panel on the right side informs me the term I’m looking for is "earthy". There’s also a bit of spice in there, but overall the nose is fairly timid.
Taste is caramel, burnt sugar and spice, a bit of alcohol, with a finish that’s by no means dry, but is definitely drier than I was expecting (I solemnly swear to stop making dirty parenthetical jokes). Overall it’s nice, and drinkable, but it’s lacking any real punch.

Foncée comme un vin rouge, dans les mêmes tons cramoisis également. En nez, fruits rouges, sucre d’orge et quelques douces épices. Bien maltée en bouche, ce sont encore des fruits foncés, en plus d’une fine amertume, qui dominent de ce côté. Une bière très bien faite pour son style, qui souligne encore la qualité générale des bières d’inspiration allemande produits par Creemore. On souhaiterait peut-être juste un peu plus d’audace, plus de torque.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Canned sample. Brownish copper in colour with moderate carbonation. Aromas are of molasses, chocolate, and wet earth. Very malty in the mouth with a dark molasses laden bread dough flavor. A bit of mineral and citrus on the back end. Fairly heavy in the mouth. Ok for the style, but not a favorite.

473 ml can. Pours a darkish amber/brown, with a mid size off white head. Aromas are sweet molasses malts, a little earth, Tastes are toffee, a little toastiness, and some minerals. Full bodied, creamy, medium earthy finish. Not too shabby!

Pours dark ruby read with off-white head that lasts one or two minutes. Caramel and burnt malt aroma with a hint of chocolate. Taste is caramel, light chocolate, with a hint of alcohol, and finishes with burnt malt and hop bitterness. Overall, I would say nicely balanced.

Have had this on draught over a period of time. Found that it grew on me as I had it over multiple visits to the pub. Very nice seasonable, good balance between hoppy bitterness and the sweetness of the malts. Feels pretty thin on the tongue, but consistent with the dunkel style. Highly recommend getting on tap!
