Its a really big brew, loaded with chewy malt flavor, a slightly nutty aftertaste and enough body to make a Zigfield girl jealous. Our Bock gets its deep mahogany color from lots of medium roasted lager malt imported from Bamberg. The Hallertau and Spalt hops are there, but do not compete with the big body and rich malt character. There is a saying in Germany - "The patron should not notice the strength of the Bock until he rises to pay the bill". It'll put horns on your head and hair on your chin!

Had this brew on 7/31/06. It was a bottle conditoned brew from 05. Poured deep mahagany with perfeect head. The nose was malty with a slight roastedness. Taste screamed malt and hinted at hops. This was such a great beer with a slight nut finish. I didn’t know what it had done to me until i stood as well. Great Beer ask for the bottle conditioned beers whenever available.
