3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 oz bottle from the LCBO, served in a shaker. Pours clear caramel with a moderate tan head that fades slowly to a thin remnant. The nose has a surprising hoppy note, along with caramel and a slight earthiness. The flavour is moderately sweet with an herbal maltiness. The finish is long, with notes of caramel and herbs. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture. Overall, this is a fairly simple malty sweet brew but fairly tasty. 2012-03-22

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
May 23, 2011 - on draught at the Brewpub in Toronto. Really attractive bright, clear and refractive copper, not much head. Smells like a bock - sweet grain, a bit floral. Taste follows, a little pungent with more bitterness, but very sweet, like a candy necklace. Average body, chewy, decent but low-level carbonation with a surprisingly long(ish) pungent floral finish overcoming the OTT sweetness somewhat.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Deep dark brown amber with a quick disappearing head. Smells of light roast caramel, malt and alcohol. A light musky tone. Medium smooth and yet biscuity body. Smooth tasge of brown sugar, malt roast, caramel and and earthy biscuit that is slighlty bitter. Easy to drink, enjoyable and not overpowering.

Amber body with a thin beige head and tons of carbonation. Sweet and corny mats with a few odd fruity notes and sweet caramel,toffee notes. Caramel malts and a bit of an off flavor. Overall, not bad, but not great either.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from store at the Toronto brewpub. Pours a clear light brown. Aroma of caramel and booze. Toasty caramel taste, which quickly becomes too sweet. Thin body, which is surprising for a 7% ABV Doppelbock. I only had 1/3 of a glass and that was enough for me.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
This tastes like strong alcohol and not much more. Really not that good. An empty taste with a touch of watery sugar. Not sure what the goal is here, but I am sure it’s not being hit. Bottle from the brewery store.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle: Poured a medium amber color bock with a medium size foamy head with OK retention and not much lacing. Aroma of sweet malt with caramel notes. Taste is not overly complex with some caramelized malt notes with light touch of toffee. Body is a bit light for style with good carbonation. Not bad but lacking taste or complexity.
