dekester1 (322) - Neenah, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 7, 2010
Poured a dark amber-red color with a light tan head that faded very slowly. Aroma of sweet malts. Taste of roasted malts - slightly sweet with a mild hop finish. Nice palate - decent body. Overall, not bad of a bock if you like a slight sweetness and low hop bitterness.

EithCubes (5053) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 21, 2010
Bottle. Overly sweet nose with a little ash and burned notes amid the roast. Just a little cocoa. Pours very dark red with ruby highlights and a noisy, rocky light tan head. Taste is bittersweet leaning heavily to the sweet side, some syrupy caramel, red berry, and very nearly artificial sweetener. Some dark earthy undertones but more in the direction of earth. Full body, lightly slick and lightly creamy. Aftertaste is very cigarette-ashy but pleasant. Again, unclean, and something I won’t be buying again, but there are some good flavors in here and it’s possible to scrape out more than a modicum of pleasure.

IlanMan (1015) - Appleton, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 5, 2010
Bottle. One thing that annoys me is that some people call a beer a name that does not justify what the beer really is. For instance, this is definitely not a bock, so why is the word on the label? I know the style proposed for the beer, but I’m guessing that’s just because the beer didn’t turn out the way it was supposed to. This was a light bodied beer with hardly any malt flavor. Dry and one dimensional. I wouldn’t drink this one again.

   AROMA 3/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 5/10   PALATE 1/5   OVERALL 7/20
VertBaconStrips (2093) - Assat, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 20, 2010
Dark brown swill, tiny light tan head, weak lacing. Raw almonds, over sweet malts - there isn’t much "bock" about this. There is lots of malts in the flavour but that doesn’t help this pile of garbage, decent soft bitterness, slight roast. It’s drinkable.

CapFlu (4586) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 25, 2009
(12oz bottle) Courtesy of my father-in-law, he said this is available in Saskatchewan at the provincial liquor store?? Pours a dark, brown body and a light, foamy almond head. Nose is very cereal. The flavour is doughy and grainy. Nothing terribly notable about this beer other than I was anticipating it being much worse. Its passable.

EHopper (620) - Minnesota, USA - DEC 5, 2009
Tasted at Beer Dabbler event in St. Paul. Not worth saying too much about. Kind of a sour, thin bock.

patrick767 (3586) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - NOV 1, 2009
bottle - Pours dark amber and has a toasty malt aroma. The flavor is toasted, slightly grainy caramel malt. It’s too watery once again though not as much so as the previous two Minhas beers I rated (Farmhouse and Pilsner). Drinkable and really boring.

CanIHave4Beers (3327) - Pouring Bus, Iowa, USA - OCT 23, 2009
Pours a deep brownish amber color with a good medium head that shows a nice retention. The aroma is lightly buttery and mildly reminiscent of coffee to some degree. The flavor is a little tart and nutty with a light roastiness and overall it’s pretty bland.

2.7
   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 10/20
fidelis83 (1997) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - OCT 7, 2009
Pours dark mahogany tinted brown with a 2 finger, chunky tan head that fades to a thick skim after a couple of minutes and leaves some sparse lacing from there. Aroma is toasted pecan, sweet grain, light roast and plain croutons. Flavor is sweet grain, light roast, a hint of smoke, dates, vanilla, some medicinal notes, dry wood and light herbal hops. Finishes with roast, sweet wheat bread, a hint of espresso, slightly medicinal. Palate is thin, a little oily and has a moderate, sharpe feeling carbonation. Not bad, reminds me of a schwarzbier.
