Pours dark orange/red. Smaller head. Smells of vanilla, rye and molasses. Taste is combination of malt, warming sweet molasses and finishing with a rye whiskey glow. Not that familiar with Bock style, but this is a nice cool fall evening beer.

Bottle. Darker amber than expected. Sweet barrel-dominant nose, oaky vanilla and rye. On the palate the malt stands up very nicely, balancing the barrel very well. Chocolate is very evident here, quite a surprise. Much tastier than I thought it would be! Really enjoyed this.

Orange/brown pour. Small head. Aroma of vanilla, a bit of molasses, roast and a bit of oak. Taste of chocolate, a bit of rye and oak. Not much of the roast in the aroma detected here.... Quite muted actually. Medium body.

650ml brown bottle. Orange coloured with decent white foam. Nose has some toast and chocolate notes with light wood. Taste has chocolate malt, toasty malt, wood, caramel. Bit of vanilla at the end with rye and barrel notes. Pleasant but feels a bit restrained at the same time.

Tap. Pours a clear dark amber body with a minimal ring of off-white head. The nose is slightly boozy with some spicy rye, moderate vanilla and oak, and a hefty caramel malt base. The flavor is a bit boozy and alcoholic, but rather smooth. Some light toasted oak. Heavier on the caramel malt than the rye, but it does come out a bit on the finish. Rather warming, surprising that this is only listed at 6.8% ABV. Must be more placebo in nature from the whiskey flavors. Rather thick and a bit sticky with soft gentle carbonation. Pretty nice beer, not a ton of depth, and heavy on the sweetness, but it’s enjoyable.

lovely malt on the nose with notes of lemon zest
a fantastic treat for the taste buds as sweetness and whisky goodness combine with the wood flavour that makes this beer a treat indeed!

Bomber. Pours a translucent copper. Nose of strong malt, nuts, some rye whiskey. Flavour is malt and spice, rye whiskey is apparent, some nuts, vanilla, and dark fruit. Smooth. Nice malt-forward beer, far better than any other Phillips lagers I’ve had, I believe.

Pours clear brown. A little thin on the taste and mouthfeel. Slightly sweet syrup but that's about it. Not really that good.
