2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bought a liter of this beer while living in Buenos Aires, and poured it into a wine glass to drink. The beer had a malty aroma with a strong caramel presence, along with some fruit, molasses, and a bit of grainy scents. It had a dark brown color, with a slight ruby hue, and a good-sized creamy off-white head that had pretty good retention and a lot of cling. The taste was somewhat sweet and malty, but also had a bitter grain effect. Its body was creamy and smooth, mostly wet, and had a decent amount of fizz and carbonation. Overall the beer had a lot of good characteristics, but the taste was its weakest component.

Bottled 970ml. -Dark amber coloured, medium sized pale beige head, caramel nose. Toasted malt, caramel and slight alcoholic with faint fruity notes (plums). Bit sweet but in comparison with Quilmes Cristal pleasant surprise.

1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Quilmes Bock is lightweight in every respect. The style’s hallmark caramel, bready flavours are there but only just. Rather than being proudly paraded around the palate, like a pedigree at a Best in Show competition, the flavours make an all too brief appearance before ingloriously exiting down the throat. The bitterness never reaches any great heights so the balance of the beer is lost, leaving you feeling underwhelmed and disappointed.

For me, Quilmes Bock is the best beer of Cerveceria Quilmes, much better than Quilmes Cristal (lager) and Quilmes Stout

Draft in Arg. A bit sweet. Not really a bock. Just a dark latin american beer. I switched back to regular Quilmes right after, if that’s any indication.

Poured dark but clear. Some burnt hops, but watery. Not bad for Latin America.
