Poured a dark brown color with a very nice tan head and great lacing the whole way down. The aroma was vinous with some hoppiness. The flavor was vinous, somewhat nutty, with light chocolate present. The finish was bitter and dry, hops (light pine but mostly resinous / bitter) and even the wheat somewhat detectable.

Coffee colored with a much tinted, long lasting head. Smoaky, coffee flavor with a short lived aroma. A winter warmer rather than a spring celebration. Interesting.

Courtesy of Pailhead. Aroma has lots of roasted grain and some coffee. Flavor is all coffee. Would say this more like a porter than bock. Decent but once again, I am not a coffee fan.

A nice beer that can be found outside of San Francisco, unlike it says in the description. Pours a dark brown with a spicy flavor. Hints of chocolate and some herbal notes.

(Bottle 65 cl) Pours a clear, dark mahogany with an orange hue and a handsome, beige head. Aroma of hard roasted malt. Medium-bodied with very dry, hard roasted malts - vaguely burned actually. Also some accents of good aroma hops. A pleasant albeit rather unusual Bock. 110606

Pours a dark brown color with a nice initial off white head that faded to nothing quickly. Has a nice roasted malt aroma. Has a light dry roasted flavor with a nice little hop zing. Aftertaste is a little malty. Fairly smooth, medium body beer. Decent beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Deep dark light absorbing brown that can be coaxed into some garnet highlights with intense backlight. Thick creamy tan head.
Malt and brown sugar aroma.
The flavor is full of sweet malt with little to no hop bitterness or flavor.
Could perhaps use a bit more body, but this is not really thin in any way. A bit of tang in the finish, perhaps from the wheat malt.
