3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours mahogany brown thick creamy off white head that stays
Aroma is sweet malty scent with slight hop smell in there
First sip is sweet malty: caramel and toffee notes a bit saltiness and a bit fruit like.
Very good beer. Don’t taste the alcohol much
Aftertaste is like caramel apple. Caramel fruit esters.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle - Toffee, raisin, toasted malts and rum. Clear but dark amber with a thin brown head. Boozy toffee, some dark fruit and alcohol burn. Finish has a bit of bitterness and is quite dry. Not very well balanced in my opinion and too much booze.

Disclaimer:bock ain’t really my thang. While I enjoy one once & awhile, it’s not something I’d reach for on a regular basis. That being said ive enjoyed everything that I’ve by these guys & this was an enjoyable drink. Aroma is rich & I get nuts & toffee on the tongue with every sip. I fact, there’s as much nuts in here as there is in the Toronto mayor’s office.
