500 mL bottle. Cloudy brown pour, thin tan head, no retention really. Aroma of toasted malt, spice and some darker fruit. Taste is the dark fruit, raisins, toffee. medium body, little bit sticky.

Raistlin (167) - London, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 30, 2015
It has this metallic after taste that just throws the whole beer off. Really bland and flat. No carbonation to liven it up at all. Would never drink it again.

OOKPIKABLE (168) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 15, 2015
Pours golden brown with minimal head. Not much aroma. Tastes of malt with malty raisin on the finish. Just fine.

Johnsense (943) - - NOV 9, 2014
Golden pour, monstrous head,like 90 percent head. Toffee, bitter hops in the aroma. Slightly astringent, fruity, grainy, metallic aftertaste. Not recommended

radiomgb (2465) - Peterborough, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2014
500ml bottle from the LCBO in Peterborough, Ontario. Golden-orange in colour with a very thin white head, very light lacing. The aroma is of wheat, toffee, bread. The flavour is fruity, some biscuts and toasted grains, herbal, light spice. Lightly sweet mouthfeel, medium/light body, medium carbonation. Finishes long, some sweetness. A wonderful beer, quite clean.

ILduce (219) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 2, 2014
Bottle @LCBO: cloudy brown with slim chance of any head. Although, carbonation is decent. Nose comprised of citrus and darkened fruits, toast, and hops. Taste is sweet caramel with fruit and malt. Thick mouthfeel with a nice bitter end. Great on a fall day after raking the leaves.

mathieuc (1948) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - AUG 27, 2014
Pours a clear golden with a medium offwhite head that clings quite well to the glass and leave impressive lacing. Nose is of fruits, spices, raisins and something I’m not quite sure I can pinpoint but it is slightly off. Grass on a wet dog maybe? Taste is acidic, green apples, maybe some raisins, but definitely full of acetaldehyde. Body is light, carbonation medium-high (a bit more than that even) and you get more green apples in the finish. Overall this wasn’t good but not horrible, there are some pretty obvious flaws in this one.

HopsandBolts (165) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 6, 2014
Pours a murky brown with just a little white head. The aromas come through pretty decent on this one with malt, brown sugar and fresh bread. The flavour is mainly malt with some yeast. While this is an interesting Bock and is quite drinkable, its also not one of my favourites. I found it a little one dimensional and lacking complexity.

Tessic (918) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2014
This bock poured a nice amber colour with big head of off white foamy. Scents include ripe fruit, malt, and bread. First sip was smooth with medium/ light carbonation and is a little watery. Flavours of ripe fruit and malt most prodominant. Finish is slightly hoppy with a light bitter end.
