The word "bock" refers to a strong lager, usually dark, released between late autumn and early spring. The rich, malty flavour of Trafalgar's Bock is developed from four different malts lagered for at least two months at 6C followed by over a month of ageing. The subtle sweetness of Trafalgar's Bock is best enjoyed with desserts and rich foods.

    Bomber from the LCBO. This beer was sitting there for quite a while, but as soon as I slightly pried open the cap, the brew came foaming out. After cleaning the big mess, pours a deep copper-brown colour with an off-white soapy-foam head that stays a while and creates a bit of lace. Smells a bit sour, like it's outdated (or infected like their first beers where). Notes of spices at least adds a bit of positive to this one. Definitely tastes infected... sour, and not much else. Kind of watery with a short finish. Thin mouthfeel and probably one of the worst Bock I have tasted. Again, a few spices here and there. Not really enjoyable.

    Lookin’ pretty good. Deep mahogony body poured and created a thin beige white foam. However, this lasted about 1 minute, after which I found there to be very little carbonation in this beer at all. Aromas are gently roasted and mild chestnut. Some crystal malt in aroma as well accompanied with brown sugar. This is where it loses its glory however. The taste is almost sour roasted malt, with underlying sweetness and raisin bread. Watery prune-ish finish. Bordering on zero carbonation towards the finish. Very watery finish. I applaud this brewery for their innovation, and their ability to make about 10 different styles of beer, plus all of the meads. But I’m not sure where they are headed as the last 4 bottles I have bought from this brewery have either suffered from infection, or been completely flat.

    Nice enough presentation (sleek 650ml bomber) and an equally attractive appearence (with exception of NO head what so ever.) Didn't get far into this to see it's the same old Trafalgar story - NO carbonation, are they aware of the concept? DO they carbonate any of their beers? Flavour is nice - allbeit seemingly 'beer syrop' injected - this is exactly what I expected! How do they stay in business? Flavour offers no depth, more like a flat rye and coke. Hard to say exactly what's wrong when nearly everything is. I hate to knock on this local brewery (again) but when your beer has no aroma, flavour, or carbonation - you deserve it.

    650ml bomber poured a ruby highlighted cola shaded lager in the glass. The cap vanished almost immediately (a signature of this brewer) but a retained ring left moderate lacing on the glass. Nose is delicate...light tones of molasses ,figs, cocoa, and wisps of grass..very promising. Mouth feel is light-silky with a good dose of malts to chew on. Very nice departure of the malt mixture in the front side...we get a malty blend of flavors reminisent of rich raisin bread or fig pudding then this finishes a tad more subdued as the roast astringency comes through with the hops and a light drying/bittering takes place in a mellow medium thin bodied finish....very smooth, not overly sweet...sufficiently multi dimensional...but very dinkable. Like a light quaffable Salvator. This is probably the best beer I have ever tasted from this brewer and it is one I like well enough to keep one or two around for drinking. A plesant surprise from this brewer and something of a redemption after all the weak watery dirty yeast tasting ales this brewer made. Mouth feel is silky with a good dose of malts to chew on.
