22 oz bomber. Pours a hazy honey golden with a medium white head. Aroma of malt, faint citrus hops, and vegetables. taste is hoppy with hints of orange peel, vegetables and malt. Pretty decent brew. goldtwins (4319) - Nesconset, New York, USA - FEB 27, 2008
Poured a clear copper color with an off-white head. Sweet biscuit malt aroma and flavor. Medium bodied and well that’s it. JoeMcPhee (9549) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 20, 2008
22 oz bottle. Deep amber-golden beer, thin white head. Soft sweet malty aroma. Pale straw-like crackery sweetness. A very European strong lager-like malt sweetness. Flavour is lightly floral and herbal. Fairly prominent bitterness with a lingering herbal/floral flavour. Okay, but not great. michael-pollack (4959) - King of Prussia, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 26, 2008
22oz. Bottle: Aroma of caramel malts, floral and fruity hops, herbs, vegetables, and a little cardboard. Poured orange in color with a large, creamy, beige head that lasted throughout. Good lacing. Cloudy. Sparkling. Flavor of caramel malts, toasting, chocolate, bread, wood, and hazelnut. Medium body. Lightly sticky texture. Average carbonation. Toasted malt finish. Uninspired. beerbuzzmontreal (3486) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - JAN 12, 2008

Bottle shared at Madness. Pours a slightly hazy orange amber with a small white head. Aroma of yeast, grains and must. Medium bodied with hardly any carbonation and a slightly dry finish. As bad as the aroma was it was a step up from the flavor. Well without bad beer how could one truely enjoy a good one? hopdog (13102) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 17, 2007
22oz bottle. Poured a medium amberish / brown color with a small sized off white head. Aromas and tastes of caramel, earthy, and some grains. Kinz (3786) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - NOV 26, 2007
Richmond "industry" gathering. Hoppy aroma of earth and floral notes. Caramel malt flavors and an intensely bitter floral hop note in the flavor that strays way outside of a typical bock. Nice, different, but I rather enjoyed it. Rastacouere (6177) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 28, 2007
Cloudy caramel bock topped by a fading light beige head. Vegetal, honeyed and kinda toasty nose. Very bready and almost wheaty in mouth. Rather strong bitterness, quite flowery, sandy, long dry and ridiculously mineral finish. Biting, strong carbonation, medium bodied. Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 17, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 29, 2009 In short: Chaotic but drinkable mess of some kind
How: Mtl-crew beer-and-spagatt tasting. Bottle, young.
The look: cloudy brown body with a short-lived tan head.
In long: Kind of weird aroma, hard to describe, I’d say vegetables-cake if such a think existed. Taste is somewhat spicy with something that reminds me of nutmeg, various herbs, cinnamon, others. Again hard to describe. Rather sweet beer with a roasted brown sugar taste. Grainy malts. Weird unexpected dry bitterness that just adds to this mess. Chaotic from A to Z but rather drinkable in a weird way. Certainly not classy but certainly not boring either. Given its low ratings I feared a true Bock from Hell, it is not although it is far from heavenly. Rock Art Purgatory’s Bock.
