3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Thank you Mathieu87 & PriorL! 750 ml. bottle sampled @ “Epic beer Tasting 2016”. Unknown vintage, felt quite vintage to me. Dark brown, little tanned head, visually clear that the carbonation is low. Taste is akin to a thick oxidized very syrupy Bock, rather metallic with thick leaves. Taste is old thick metallic syrupy Bock, leaves, plastic, roots, clear oxidation, bland, overly & extremely sweet. Thick oxidized lager. Feels too old & overly thick uninteresting Bock. Definitely below average for The Bruery.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cream ring over muddy red-brown beer. Sweet, almonds, marzipan, rosewater, amandine, frangipane. Rosewater, marzipan, wàààày too sweet, even for a Bock. Medium bodied, almost no carbonation. Not my taste, and certainly not Patricks’ best. "Shegöat"??? What’s that Umlaut doing there?

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle... Hazy dirty-orange pour with a small, creamy, white head. Good retention. The aroma features vanilla and winter spices. Full-bodied and creamy with soft carbonation. The flavor is a mélange of rich toffee, vanilla and graham malts, accompanied by seasonal spice rack fun and a nice, acidic/mildly tart component. Finishes tangy, malty and minerally.
