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.

For an American version of a Germanic Bock beer, this one does the trick well.

Cor marrom escura, brilhante. Espuma boa, bege e persistente. No aroma caramelo, chocolate e tostado. Paladar frutas secas e grãos torrados. Retrogosto seco e levemente amargo.

Bottle. Dark amber, red in colour with white head. In aroma caramel and malt with a hint of dried fruit. In taste caramel and toasted malt mainly. Surprisingly low bodied, medium bitter. Doesn’t really taste like a proper bock, isn’t that bet on the other hand.

Cerveja de bela cor marrom brilhante. Aromas de caramelo e pouco frutada. Sabor doce de malte com pouquíssimo amargor de lúpulo. Corpo leve. Boa.

Pours a very dark deep ruby with medium tan head. Aroma of sweet malt, dark fruit and hops. Tastes of chocolately and fruity with some caramel malt and a light bitter finish. Light to medium bodied.

Darwenus (612) - Virginia, USA - APR 19, 2015
Not bad, but too sweet for my taste. It pours a warm brown color with a lot of head. The aroma is sweet malt. It’s very sweet smelling, and the flavor is even sweeter. A little spice, some nutmeg, some ginger, some fig... but mostly, a butter-sugar-molasses thing going on in the flavor. This wasn’t bad but I won’t have it again.

bottle. Brown with one finger head. Malty with some caramel and toffee flavors. Balance of sweet notes initially with a hoppy bitterness in the finish.

Dark brown colour. Aroma of roasted malts. The same is the taste. Slighty watery aftertaste. For dunkler bock it should have nearly 2% higher abv.

Bottled. Pour into snifter, black porter color, big tan head. Aroma is toffee, fig, cherry, plum, caramel, slight burnt sugar. Like a malt forward Barleywine. Really awesome Aroma. Flavor is sweet candied sugar. Really really sweet sugar. Cherries, plums, dark fruits, caramel. Very sweet but not unpleasant. But the body is a bit too effervescent. Otherwise really good.

12oz bottle from Masuyo’s Liquor in Asagaya. Poured into a shaker pint. Dark brown color with a modest tan head. Roasted coffee, toffee, chocolate and malt aromas present. Slightly bitter resiny taste surrounded by nice toasted malts. Rich and dry finish.

American Bock, and the land of the free! In my humble opinion, go for Doppelbock instead, too soft for my taste! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
