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.

UPDATED: JUN 11, 2007 I was excited to get a six pack of this last spring but was not expecting to be wowed by the flavor. Pours a modest brown and mahogany tinged body, ruby highlights and a dwindling tan head. Blackstrap molasses leads the way in the aroma, along with notes of herbal hops, nuts and caramel. Flavor is outstanding, more focused on hop spices rather than bitterness, creating a frre roaming plane for the caramel malts to shine. Excellent mouthfeel and a bittersweet and long lasting finish. Very well made bock.

Marsiblursi (3070) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2006
(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.
