Bière brune de 7 % d’alcool. Elle possède un col mousseux, peu pétillante. Elle possède un odorat sucré et un léger goût de caramel et/ou de « toffee ». Très légère amertume en finale et un goût crémeux. Agréable et soyeuse.

Festbock presents a very nice blend of caramel, chocolate and coffee tones, with a nice blend of malts and hops to make this more than just a little enjoyable. As mentioned earlier, there is a slight hint of the alcohol coming through, but the above characteristics help to gloss over that minor drawback.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Poured from 500mL can. Clear copper brown with off-white head. Aroma right out of the can was almost like 7up, but became more like mild caramel and molasses after sitting in the glass. Taste of sweet malt and very subtle dark fruit. Quite light. Alcohol is hidden.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Way too much sweet malt and caramelized sugar in this one. Overpowering. Not been good in a seasonable way. Tall can.

I found this boch in a small, Chinese-owned, liquor store, in Fox Creek Alberta no less!
I’ve never had holsten’s Boch before, I have had their black one (the name escapes me). What drew me to this in the liquor store was the peculiar packaging (4-500 mL cans taped together), combined with the fact that most of them had been taken. Price was $11, which is right for 2L of great German beer!
If you’re ever in Fox Creek, get it for sure, and keep an eye out in other places too. It is a great beer.

Fairly aromatic. Lots of caramel, bitter hops...very earthy. Dark with a small head. Not too bad.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pours bourbon & cola dark with a hearty one finger cap. Taste is full with toffee, toasted pumpernickel & booze on the tongue. Bocks somewhat confuse me so my rating here is a little on the amateur side (if only others on here would be more honest when they rate a beer style they ’re not familiar with). While the taste is full without being bold, there is a syrupy essence here that makes me reach for something more crisp for my next pour.

This beer is much better than anticipated. The malt character is weak and masked by the booziness.
