I’ve never seen such a dark Bock. Chocolate mixed with maltiness & some hop aroma. Love me some anchor, but didn’t get this beer at all.

Bottle. Dark brown with beige small head and some marks or lacing. Aromas of dark fruits and caramel, rather medium but very pleasant. Medium to heavy body, malty, roasted, caramel taste with right sweetness. I’m not a big fan of bocks, this one was really good.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a dark brown with a thin cap of light tan head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty chocolatey. There is a nice dry roasted malt and a pretty heavy metallic tendency. There isn't a lot of other notable things going on. The flavor is surprising. There is a good chocolate and a nice malt profile. The metallic is there a little bit, but it's not as prominent as the nose. There is a dry roast that pops up about half way through. The mouth feel is decently creamy with a soft velvety carbonation and a lingeringly chocolatey aftertaste. I actually think I like the aftertaste better than the actual taste, but it's good

Anchor Bock is one of those brews that’s eluded me for a long time. Well, no longer. Bock was tonight’s pizza beer. Rich, German-style beer and salty, cheesy pizza is a combination I love. Anchor Bock was perfect for the fare. It poured brown with off-white bubbles up top. Aroma was full, rich, and fruity. Flavor had lots of devilishly tasty malty stuff. Chocolate, molasses, dark fruit, and caramel. The barley and wheat created a lot of sweetness, yet this beer managed to not be cloying. While it’s a big beer, Bock was balanced and smooth. Anchor, it’s been too long since we’ve done something new together. Let’s get together again soon, yes?

Bottle. No detailed notes on this one - aroma and flavor both strongly reminiscent of chocolate-covered raisins. Small hop bite at the end. Not my thing.

Coloração escura. Aroma suave mas marcante. Colar denso de pouca duração. Leve amargor. Retrogosto tostado, de café. Corpo leve. Excelente!

Casi negra, opaca. Buen aroma, caramelo, malta y lupulos. En boca, sorpende por la combinación de los tonos aromaticos florales y frutales de las ales de la marca junto con amargores secos de café tipo stouts. Cremosa y sorprendente.

Mega intensywny, karmelowo-chlebowy aromat. W sensie piwo pachnie chlebem, kupionym dzien wczesniej w piekarni. Niezle.Dosc slodkie, karmelowe. Przyjemna interpretacja kozlaka.
