3.2/5 rDev -9.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 3.5
Sampled 4oz @ The Island Beer Fest, Club 919 in Victoria, BC
A: Fruit-coloured redish-gold, almost like a cooler. Big white head, moderate retention with clean, small lacing patterns
S: Raspberry, blackberry, a little malt, but overall sugary with a few mild phenols
T: Slightly hoppy at start, malty and sweet, with berry aftertaste
M: Light and frothy, again like a cooler with malt, more of a fruit beer than a bock
O: Meh. If one likes the style, Swans' Berry Ale is much better IMO. Week body, not much flavour. Very basic, a 'beer for non-beer-drinkers'. Even my sugar-addicted roommate wasn't impressed.
Serving type: on-tap

Hoyne Brewing "Big Bock" @ 6.5% in a 650 ml bottle served cold , poured into a stein
A-dark amber with a big frothy head and lotsa lacing
S-hint's of sweet berries and a herbal floral hoppyness
T-a sweet malt start and herbal hoppyness finish
MF-"bock - bitter hoppyness can be assertive enough to balance though must not get in the way of malty flavor most are only lightly hopped" - this particular bock is to hoppy for me
Ov-just ok , maybe some extra months lagering will help smooth out such a strong brew

Big bock pours a bright, red amber with an nice head that lingers as a thin layer. The aroma is slightly sweet and malty with a nice herbal and slightly floral hoppiness. Malt is upfront in the flavor, with an almost perfumy like sweetness. There is a nice, light fruity flavor, almost grape like. The herbal, hops pop up in the finish, with a bit of earthiness and a nice bit. A hint of alcohol lingers, but overall the beer is clean.
