Tastes like a cheap macro american porter, not sure how they consider this a bock

Ughsmash (7181) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 2, 2009
Bottled. Poured deep cola brown with a short, creamy cap of tan head. The aroma picked up artificially-sweetened caramel, chocolate, and molasses accented by some vanilla.. almost like a beer soda. The flavor found very sweet molasses and chocolate notes at the core, again with a little vanilla on the edges.. bitterness was very light and earthy.. finished sweet with a bit more of the molasses and vanilla. Lighter-bodied and overly sweet on the palate, but no serious flaws or infection noted.. maybe I had a "good" bottle of it.

DuffMan (7028) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2008
Spontaneous tasting with presario and others whom we wont mention for their safety. Pours dark brown with a frothy khaki head. There is chocolate in the aroma but you have to fight through a weird scotch tape sweet chemical thing to translate it. The palate is essentially the same. The chemical trait became so distracting as to make this undrinkable after several sips. Presario thinks infection but it has been in a number of beers from these guys. I think that its just crap brewing skills and crap product. These guys are aggressive marketers but their products are pure shit.

BVery (6964) - Burnsville, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2011
Bottle from the Minhas brewery gift shop in Monroe, WI. Dark brown pour with a thin cream colored head. Aroma is sweet malt and slightly roasty. Thin watery palate. Taste is that of cold coffee (stole that comparison from a prior rater - I like the comparison), with a touch of sweet malt. Pretty much a right down the middle beer - nothing exceptional, but not too bad either. Probably the best thing I’ve had from Minhas to date.

BBB63 (6154) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - MAR 27, 2009
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: Pours deep cola brown with a fading off-white head and some lace. The aroma has notes of walnut, caramel and bready malts, hint of grassy hops, some corn and veggie esters along with a dash of lacto sourness. The taste starts malty enough but there is also a twang that is not wanted. Nutty and bready with a hint of sugar. The mouth feel is watery as expected. Okay enough and the best of the four I tried but it is hardly even an average brew IMO.

Skyview (5269) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - DEC 14, 2008
Received 12-oz bottle from distributors sample pack. Pours a clear dark brown blonde brew with a fast dissolving beige head that dissipates nearly clean. Aroma of caramel malt, some chocolate, flowery hops and some roasted nuts. Taste is light bodied, plenty of carbonation with flavors of light caramel malt, a touch of flowery hops, some chocolate, sage? or was it some dry herb I have to look into. Finish is metallic, gritty, a tad watery with some caramel aftertaste that quickly disappears. I can not remember the last quality craft beer I had from Monroe since Has Kessler was forced out of the old Huber brewery.

EithCubes (5088) - 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.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 8, 2008
After the last few offering from this brewery I can say I am not really looking forward to this even though I do enjoy a good bock. I am mildly titilated by the cap that states bock equals taste. Dark brown color with a diminished head leaving just a thin lid of taupe bubbles. Earthy malt and mild dry cocoa is about all I can inhale. Ok maybe a bit of dirt and hints of roasted nuts as well. This very much reminds me of the bock of my youth when a good share of breweries had a bock out each year and very year the joke would go around that it was time to clean out the vats. Darker grain flavors. A bit husky in the finish and linger. The cap makes sense from a 1980s perspective when light beers ruled and this was then the seasonal dark brew offering. I do not fild great faults in this one except it has not depth. Toss a litttle more dark malt in and call it a bock.

presario (4708) - Stampede City, Alberta, CANADA - DEC 3, 2008
Looked good. Dark brown with a nice head. Thin chocolate and off-aroma. Flavour is malt, chocolate and a flavour that seems like an infection or something off in the brewing.
