COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A full-bodied lager beer of exuberant and robust character. It’s muscle-man body comes from decocted German malts and noble German hops. Lagered long and cold to refine its strong temperament, St. Boisterous emerges smooth and seductive, with a malty sweet charm. This classic rendition of the German ‘maibock' style will warm your heart.

The tap says lager, which it clearly ain't. The commmercia description says Bock, which doesn't seem quite right either. Honey sweet, good bitter hoppy finish, almost syrupy. Closer to a well-hopped barley wine than anything else.

Pretty good bock. More like a mild Maibock I believe - mildly sweet, vaguely hopped, mild alcohol & honey. Did I mention Mild? I guess with all their other great flavorful brews, this one came across a bit flat.

Didn't seem all that sweet to me. Alcohol pretty well-hidden, which is always tough to do. This is a decent bock, but doesn't hold up against the bock alltime greats like Ayinger Maibock.

Oakes (15294) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 1, 2003
Some fusels, faint malt. Light amber colour. A little bit of stickiness. Like an underhopped Polish mocne. Lacks the melanoidins I seek.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 1, 2003
Bright golden color. Candyish and somewhat plastickey nose, a touch of fruit. Body is thick with malt and has a light hoppiness. These do nothing to combat the much too evident alcohol and the over-the-top sweetness. Not very good, maybe one of the worst ones from this brewery.

hopscotch (10557) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 29, 2003
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2006 Crystal clear deep straw-colored brew. Almost no head. The nose is malty with notes of honey and flowers. Lesser notes of citrus fruit and butterscotch. Up front, the flavor is of soothing orange blossom honey and citrus fruit. Clover and lemon peel (just barely bitter) on the backside. Full-bodied with a creamy mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Nice dry finish. Warm alcohol seeps slowly down the throat at the wee end. Very good brew! Overall, the alcohol is well-disguised.

Nate (4114) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2003
Weak aroma with light malts. Hops imparted a sour note. Tan amber clear liquid with no head. Light smooth carb and medium watery body. Light dry hops and decent malt profile. Good bitter in finish and sweet nutty after. One of the more disappointing Victory beers.

boto (2083) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - APR 22, 2003
UPDATED: APR 2, 2005 Draught @ Victory. This one pours a absolutely clear golden color. There was very little white head on it. The nose was somewhat malty and also had a slight grassiness to it. The taste is a bit of a malty biscuity taste, and was slightly sweet. The medium body belies its 7.4% alcohol. Very Good!

I had the first pint off the first keg of the season. Good balance between malt and hops, toffee undertones

Not on par with other offerings. Whereas the Dopplebock is a beautiful beer, this one was flawed with some real "off" flavors.
