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.

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.

Papsoe (25083) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 15, 2006
(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

Dark amber color, brownish head. Chocolate aroma, some vanilla and hops. Malty flavor with sourish notes. Fruity but a bit thin and watery.

cbkschubert (2900) - BFE, Arizona, USA - JUN 18, 2006
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.

SpringsLicker (3169) - Tennessee, USA - JUN 20, 2006
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.

[Bottled] Dark brown with a thick, beige head. Fresh hoppiness in the aroma. Flavour from dried fruits, prunes and chocolate. Pretty sourish.
