4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tap. Opaque, brown body with red/orange hue. Small ring of a head, stays a ring, and doesn’t lace. Look is OK, but the aroma is lovely. Dark fruits, dark malts, some estery yeasty fruitiness, and a generally rich and delicious aroma. Body is awesome. Velvety carbonation, fullish, not at all sticky with a great finish. Fantastic. Flavor is a continuation of the aroma, fairly malty, but not really sweet. A dark, fruity monster of a bock and it’s tastily complex and lovely.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Advertised as a Triple Bock at RnH, 2010. Sweet chocolatey, a touch boozy, has a nice fruitiness in the midpalate that melds nicely with the chocolate bitterness. Very nice.

3.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
750 ml bottle - pours deep brown, with a small soapy off-white yellowish head. Immediately an aroma of rhum soaked raisins and salted caramel. Medium body, high on the sour side, alcohol sting as from the middle darkly roasted and slightly smoked towards the end. Peat aromas and light toffee taste. and alcohol burn - pity

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Pour from bottle - milk chocolate brown with creamy tall head
Aroma - Very fruity aroma. Raisins, figs, dates, dark cherries, raspberry. Also loads of chocolate, brown bread, and faint whiff of booze.
Taste - chocolate covered cherries, raisins, bubblegum, roasted malt, citrus hops, touch of lemon juice.
Palate - oily mouthfeel, soft carbonation, syrupy heavy body, sweet aftertaste that is pretty brief.
Very delicious, but pretty sweet and heavy. Definitely share a bottle with a friend.

Very thick and malty. Long-lasting head. Slight coffee, but predominately chocolate flavor. It’s almost like eating a Snickers bar. This one drinks slowly.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle (75cl). Inch-thick light beige head, good retention, settles as a thick bubbly layer with flame-shaped lacing. Dark brown colour. Complex, sweet malty aroma with raisins/prunes, chocolate, licorice, menthol, wood, ash, vanilla, whisky. Full body, yet somewhat lighter than expected from the ABV. Soft carbonation. Taste is dryer than suggested by the nose, very well balanced with a rich bitter-sweet and woody maltiness. The finish is tongue-dryingly bitter with sweet malt and menthol/cloves.

4.1 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
January 2, 2014. 750mL bottle from LCBO quite some time ago, pulled from our ’cellar’. Lovely caramel and raisin aroma. Opaque. Lovely lacing. Thinner than expected. Would not guess this is 11%, masks the alcohol quite well. Bit of lingering bitterness on the end. Wish we could get more Mikkeller in Ontario.
