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.

Renaissance - Stonecutter Scotch Ale
 
Pours very dark copper, slightly cloudy with a full tan coloured head.
Aroma of earth, raisins, hints of coffee and chocolate and just a touch of alcohol.

Feel is very rich and creamy.
Taste is very good, starts with coffee and dark berries, raisin or dried plum. Honey and rum fill in the middle with a light citrus finish.
A bit on the sweet side but the citrus in the finish cleans it up fairly well. It still leaves coffee and a sweet liqueur feel lingering in the mouth. Reminds me of rum in a lot of ways.
I like this as an after dinner drink but I wouldn't want too many at a sitting.
