Saskatchewan (Canada)

3.65/5  rDev -0.8%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

A - deep red, brilliant clarity, fizzy off white head

S - clean, malty, some dark fruits, not overly dense, but clean and inviting

T - huge maltiness up front, bready and fruity munich malt, sticky toffee, some residual sweetness, just enough hop bitterness to balance, clean throughout, aftertaste is pleasant, but a little abrupt

M - medium full body, medium carbonation, somewhat creamy, but also sticky, warming alcohol is evident

D - this is a pretty nice Canadian bock, quite enjoyable

This has just about all the classic components, and is very well brewed. The only knock is that it comes across as almost "too clean," which sounds odd for a lager, but makes me think it has been overly filtered instead of given an extended lager (another website said it was lagered for 2 months and then filtered, so there you go).

Definitely one of the better beers I've tasted from Onterrible. Way to go Derek!

Thanks to Viggo for the bottle!

3.43/5  rDev -6.8%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

500mL bottle into snifter. 7.2% abv. smudged & illegible date code on the neck of the bottle

a: a beautiful and clear dark mahogany (just like the bottle says) with a finger of off-white head

s: raisins and bready malts. hints of figs, slight caramel as well. not a strong or complex aroma but it definitely smells appetizing

t: mostly raisins and toasted bread. slight apple, nutty, grassy, and chocolate flavours on the back end. a little bit of alcohol comes through. finishes dry and bitter. good stuff

m: medium body with good and appropriate carbonation

o: it's one-dimensional but it's tasty

3.76/5  rDev +2.2%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

A: Rusty brown, clear filtered, very little carbonation, 3 fingers of very light tan head.

S: Skunk, offal, toasted burnt caramel, light citrus hops, apple candy.

T: Apple candy, lightly burnt caramel, toasted malt, light citrus lemon peel hops.

M: Medium thick body with little carbonation.

O: It’s a good brew. I Like the slight citrus note that’s not overdone, and the overall flavour. Not overly sweet as some in this style tend to be in my opinion.
