1.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle, dark brown with a thick foamy beige head. A malty aroma with some coffee. Very dry palate, a little flavourless and a bit burnt.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Toffee colored pour with a head that sprays carbonation. Nose of cinnamon and powdered sugar on toast. Vague, strange sweetness. Tastes of sour fruit, white grapes, palpable sugars. Palate is void and very loose. Kind of intriguing for its weirdness but not in a favorable way.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Little of everything. It is not for what one expects from a dark beer. Something of Malty, in a very slight body. Nothing more.

1.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Clear dark brown with medium beige head. Low and empty aroma, flavor too sweet for a bock. Light body and watery. It´s like a pale lager in taste but coloured.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Can. Clear, copper with beige head. Malt, caramel, sweetness and a tad spice aroma. The flavor has a malty sweetness and some hops. Medium body and a sweet and malty finish. A decent bock, but a bit anonymous. (070427)

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Unlike the lager, this beer is definitely very drinkable. Nice body, caramel, and even though not like most of the bock beers I drink in Europe, it is very refreshing.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottled. Dark brown, minimal beige head. Dominated by crystalized sugar. Medium bodied with clean mouthfeel. No finer nuances, but there are notes of coffee and caramel. Very low bitterness. Tolerable.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Big bottle (there are so many big bottles in Argentina!). Dark amber colour. Aroma of caramel, toasted malts, some hoppiness. Bit sweet flavour of caramel and toasted malts, some alcohol, with a sweet bit bitter finish. An ok brew.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle: Quite flat and boring for a ´bock´ beer, very close to it’s brother brew. Watery, plain, boring. Heineken do something here, you’re dying!
