Papillon (366) - Sudbury, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 1, 2014
341 mL Bottle. Deep gold-copper body with a rocky off-white head settling to a wispy film. Aroma of light malts and grains with an earthiness to it and a subtle phenolic note. Sweet malts dominate in the taste, subtle molasses and treacle aftertaste, and a cream cheese finish.

Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2012
Bottle - 341ml. Beautiful dark copper body with a thin off-white foamy head. Rich malty/hoppy aroma with brown sugar, fruity, and some subtle spicy hints. Taste is well balanced but rather thin for a Bock. It carries woody notes and ends with a short, moderately warming, bittersweet finish. Not bad.

solidfunk (3605) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - NOV 16, 2012
Smells very sugary. Taste is sticky and sweet. Pours cloudy orange. A kind of shitty chemical bitterness. Not very good. Same bitterness as their IPA, very strange. Nothing to do with a dunkler bock whatsoever. From Delires du Terroir. Bottle.

czar (4110) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 14, 2012
pours a clear medium dark golden orange with a very small off-white head, little retention. fairly sweet caramel malts, light citrus. average carbonation, light to medium body, decent grassy-citrusy finish.

BarrelSelect (16) - Quebec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 27, 2012
Teinte ambré avec reflets orangés, mousse mince mais persistante. Nez de céréale. Goût de malt torréfié, miel, agrume, amertume résineux. Effervescence agréable. Une bière correct mais le malt n’est pas assez présent à mon goût pour le style Bock. Le houblon prend le dessus sur le malt.

Minderbinder (1680) - Québec, Quebec, CANADA - APR 5, 2012
On tap. Pours amber, with low white head. Good lacing. Aroma is of malt. Taste is malty, somewhat bitter. Nutty? Dry finish. Not a great beer.

VT (1298) - Quebec City, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 10, 2012
341 ml bottle. Pours a clear orange amber with no head. Smells strongly of caramel and alcohol. Tastes like toffee and dried fruits, with some bitterness and booze in the finish. Alcohol taste is persistent. Medium bodied. An alright beer, but far from memorable.

AlainG (1127) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 4, 2012
Liquide cuivré limpide ayant pratiquement aucun col. Des arômes de caramel et de malt en émanent, accompagnées d’une odeur me rappelant celle de la peau exposée au froid. En bouche on y retrouve des notes plutôt sucrées, âcres et acidulées, ainsi qu’un touche d’ alcool bien amalgamé au reste. Légère amertume en arrière-goût qui donne un peu de personnalité à cette bière. (145-100112)

UM02 (302) - Quebec, CANADA - DEC 13, 2011
Not as good as this brewery’s Eisbock nor completely true to its style but nevertheless quite a good beer. It is crisp tasting with nice water and is nicely hopped though a bit too hopped to be true to the bock style. It is on the low side of alcohol content for a bock and thus not surprisingly lacks the heavy alcohol taste of many bocks.
