Ok, the Coca-Cola-style twist off, light aluminum cap is just plain tacky. Now on to what really matters... Crystal clear, deep, copper-colored brew. Small, creamy, khaki head with minimal lacework. Yeast, malt (dark roasted), alcohol and citrusy hops in the nose. Different! But a nice combination of aromas! The flavor is filled with caramel, coffee, cocoa and dark bread up front. Nicely balanced. Lightly bitter and acidic with a touch of mildew on the backside. Medium-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and playful carbonation. Lengthy, astringent, lighty bitter finish. Pulls up just short of being a world class beer in my book. Mega-thanks to radiomgb for contributing this very fine bock!

I can't wait until the Christmas season again in 2003. Sweet enough, dry enough, heavy enough... near perfect.

A true bock style beer that hits all the right notes. Blends the correct amount of alcohol with enough hops to hint at balance. Great dark malt background. Well done.

UPDATED: MAR 11, 2003 Very dark in appearance, almost no head. Has a fairly bold taste, with a hoppy aftertaste.

Good dark colour and malt flavour but a little too carbonated.

UPDATED: NOV 4, 2003 What can I say Urbock is great. This small brewery is making some great flavoured beers. The people at the brewery are great to deal with. Very brown. And smooth. very nice. ..... Okay that's what I said about it from a past rating. Back to 2003 now. Something has changed about this beer. It's not as good as how I remembered it. It has good bitters the colour is the same however the flavour is much more lack-luster compaired to when I had it last which was when it first came out. Little to no head on it. Not much in the aroma. My rating was 3.7 I will have to lower it now.

presario (4902) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 9, 2002
UPDATED: APR 30, 2003 Beautiful dark colour. Almost no head. Screw top cap was a surprise. Great rich flavour. A better more agreeable malt and hops combination than I find in a number of bocks.

CapFlu (5074) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 6, 2002
UPDATED: OCT 18, 2004 (500ml bottle) Now I had this beer in the 500ml format, and I don't know if it comes in any other sizes, but a screw top (the ones you find on cheap wine) just presents to me as low-quality! The taste, however, is pretty good though it tastes somewhat over-carbonated as it passes the roof of the mouth.
