COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottle: Filtered.
First brewed in 2005.
Ingredients: Finest barley malts, wheat malts, and fresh whole hops.
Bock beer, released in celebration of the arrival of spring, is an ancient and mysterious part of the brewing tradition. Over time, the term "bock" has come to mean a beer darker and stronger than the brewery’s regular brew. This is the first time we have brewed a bock at Anchor Brewing Co., and we hope you will find it to be a rich and flavorful addition to our offerings. San Francisco’s Anchor Bock Beer is virtually handmade by the brewers of Anchor Steam® Beer, in one of the most traditional small breweries in the world.

(Bottle) Pours brown to black. Roasted aroma with hops, chocolate and a sting of sour coffee. A bit fruity and a small note of smoke. Malty flavour with liquorice/anise and some hops. A tiny bit minty with hints of herbs. Light sour finish.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2006
Very dark brown/black body with a small head which rapidly fades. Typical Anchor liquorice-like aroma with a nice malt profile. Quite sweet flavor with hops and some spice - mint leaves? Refreshing, with a light mouthfeel; not too heavy on the carbonation. Its not a bock as I know it, but it sure is a nice brew.

JensenTaster (1719) - DENMARK - DEC 15, 2006
(on bottle) Am I getting old orwhat? This is just not a bock in my bo(o)(c)k. Allmost pitch black, beige head. Small hoppy nose, watery mash and coffee/dark chocolate finish. A porter in every aspect and I don´t give a s#%¤ if RB all of a sudden has invented "Dunkler Bock". Nice porter though.

thedm (5141) - Fort Wayne, USA - NOV 18, 2006
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a large sized head of foamy finely sized bubbles that were mostly lasting and left behind a typically carbonated dark brown colored body and a thick foamy lacing. The mild aroma was sweet and dark malt. The thin smooth mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The thin flavor contained notes of sweet and dark malt. An OK brew just nothing special.

Dickinsonbeer (5075) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - NOV 14, 2006
One of my favorite regular bock beers. Pours a ruby red clear and a thin lasting sticky head and some lace. Aroma is lightly roasty, thcik strong caramel and toasted malts, lightly nutty and some chocolate hints. Roasted nuts, thick toasted malts, bready, loads of munich character and a light herbal hop finish with a hint of sweetness. Great smooth mouthfeel. Nice fall beer.

12oz bottle. Dark amber color brew with light brown head. Sweet malt and molasses aroma. The flavor begins with a slight tart twinge that hits as the carbonation does. Then roasted malts and some brown sugar (maybe) fill in the rest of the flavor. As the taste ends the flavors kind of even out and dissipates.
