Trafalgar Brewing - Bock Lager

A medium tan coloured and short lived head on a very dark red/brown (cola) coloured beer.
I could find no aroma at all.
The feel was medium, slightly watery.
The taste started with a bit of roasted malt, some chocolate and a hint of berry in the finish.
Some alcohol or acitone tastes were present as well.
As Bock beers go this is not a great example. Of course, knowing Trafalgar the next bottle could be exceptional. I wish they could learn to be consistant.


Same

I wish they could be consistent too!

I like to see breweries

I like to see breweries experiment and I like a wide variety of tastes but I really hate it when one batch is so radically different from the next.
I have found some of their beers to suddenly be an entirely different style, not just a different taste.
I can understand minor variations due to raw material changes, but not the kind of swings I have found with Trafalgar.

Westmalle Dubbel

A thick, creamy, light tan coloured head on a very dark black beer with some highlights of red. You can't see through it even against a bright light.

The aroma is of berries with a hint of citrus and some earthiness. There is a scent like cream or milk somehow.
The feel is very rich and creamy, well rounded and full.
It starts with rich berry tastes and a touch of bitter chocolate,quickly followed by a light and bright citrus bitterness. There is a lingering cream sort of taste on part of the tongue while the citrus tingle fills the rest of the mouth.
Overall the citrus berry taste predominates with the hint of bitter chocolate alway present.

I have waited quite a while to get this one and it was worth it.

Highly recommended.

Beer Quote of the day

There were years when I was a beer and tequila guy, then I got real fat. And then I found that you could actually go on a diet and drink scotch.
