Pours dark brown with a nice tan head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of a touch of cocoa/chocolate with a slightly metallic tinge. A hint of vague hops are there, as is some dark grain.

The taste is of cocoa - slightly metallic. Not too sweet. It has a balanced, abrupt finish. Not much flavor. It almost seems like it goes towards a doppelbock, but a thin one.

Although thin, it's not watery or too fizzy. Although not particularly creamy, either. Still, it's easy on the tongue.

Not bad. A decent dark bock.

16oz can from a tour of the Minhas Brewery (I will not contribute to their dilution of the word "craft" by including it in their name).
Poured into a shaker pint; darker reddish-brown with a medium off-white head that fades quickly into a spotty topping of foam.
Smells surprisingly promising; metallic darker malt, although there is a worrisome odd sweet scent at the end.
Taste starts off alright, but things go bad quickly. Starts off with darker robust malt, but immediately devolves into sickly sweet grain and sugar. It's like drinking the milk left over from a bowl of raisin bran.
Mouthfeel is thin.
Overall, I didn't expect much and I wasn't wrong. My first drain pour.

12oz glass at the nascent brewery in Calgary.

This beer appears a clear dark cola amber colour, with one fat finger of foamy, sort of creamy beige head, which leaves a consistent wall of iceberg cliff lace around the glass as it quickly recedes.

It smells of mildly roasted, somewhat nutty caramel malt, a bit of stony minerals, and very faint earthy, leafy hops. The taste is moderately sour, thin caramel malt, some stale bar top nuts, a bit of cheap rum-esque alcohol warming, and musty dead earth hops.

The bubbles are pretty inert, and hardly noticeable, the body medium-light in weight, and smooth with a tacky add-on. It finishes nearly sweet, the strangled caramel malt aided by an emerging stale orchard fruitiness.

A rather plain and sketchy bock - the edginess just isn't there - and the slight off-flavours are thusly accentuated. Not altogether undrinkable, just wholly unremarkable for the style, once again.

Pours with a cola color, 1 finger of head. Has a mild toasty, not burnt, aroma. A caramel flavor with some chocolate notes. It has a very smooth and bitter sweet finish. Probably one of the more drinkable bocks I have ever had. I have tried to find it again but must have been a one-off for my local store. A shame...

Poured from a 16 oz. can. Has a cola color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is mild, some malts, a hint of chocolate. Taste is the same, malty, chocolate, slightly sweet, not what I expected. Feels medium bodied in the mouth and overall is a decent beer, which considering the brewer, is saying a lot.
