3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours cherry wood dark with a thick creamy cap. Tastes like Fall weather: brown sugar, caramelized root vegetables, under baked pumpernickel bread. A little too syrupy for my taste. Enjoyable sipper on a grey rainy day with the bioshock soundtrack murmuring in the background.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle from the LCBO. Clear dark copper with a one finer tan head that fades quickly to a sheet. Nose is brown sugar with dark fruit and some floral and spice notes. Lightly sweet caramel and honey throughout with the faintest hint of fruity tartness. Thin slightly watery mouth with soft carbonation.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear dark chestnut brown with a burgundy tinge and a one finger tan head that disappeared quickly. Earthy notes, brown sugar, and light fruity floral notes on the nose. Taste wise, lighter bodied and sweet with brown sugar, raisin, light minerality, and a bit of a floral taste that leads into more of the same with some malt, and yeast in the finish. It’s by no means complex, but it’s solidly enjoyable in the world of bocks. I’d buy it again.
