COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This malty, sweet, dark amber colored German-style bock beer is brewed with imported malt and hops. Its uncommon smoothness and impeccable taste make it the perfect companion for a cold night.

Thanks to nearbeer for the bottle! The body is a cherry mahogany color that makes a thin soapy head of mocha. Caramel and molasses nose. Spritzy palate, the flavor is lightly sweet, no hop bitterness. Simple and easy to drink.

Light,sweetish,malts coming up, along with a wisp of sulfur, thin sugary sweet dark fruit,and caramel taste, that drys out very quickly almost to the pont of astringency, a sour milk like lactose taste keeps peeking out. Some noticable alcohol. Merely ok

UPDATED: JUL 14, 2012 12 oz. Dark copper-brown with ruby tints and a four-finger, creamy head that lingers and leaves nice lace. Nose is earth-spicy molasses and cocoa with slight sweet corn in the background. Tastes of twangy-sweet caramel, molasses, dry cocoa, slight sour apple, toasted nut, and grain. Near medium body is pretty smooth, but has an astringently dry finish that sweeps the malt away pretty well.

12oz Bottle. Rather warm, lightly skunky malt character glows from the glass. Rather subdued, but present and rich. Vinous. A big waft of wine in the nose, cabernet. Pours clear in mid-red amber, with a tall head of suavely tanned foam. Does this have sulfites in it? Weird, heavy vinous blasts up front again. Chewy malt starts to shine. Caramel, Munich and a bittering hop edge. There’s the faintest skunkiness to the whole profile, but it’s not overly distracting. Tannins and astringency. Body is in place for the style. Could use more depth and nuance and to back off on some of the flavors that aren’t entirely desirable. Gummy hop glow in the back end.

Aroma is a little weak on this one. Its appearence is nice with a nice head. Flaveor and after taste are pretty good. Had it at the brewery and at the Detroit Athletic Club.

Deep red. Sweet mild aroma. Creamy but not much flavor. Good body. Not too much to it but still pretty good.

Silphium (3158) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - DEC 31, 2007
Clear caramel red-brown body, thin cream head. Nose of caramel, sweet breads, dark fruits, and leafy hops. Somewhat medicinal. Very light body, almost a sugar water with light berries, grape, toast, and bitter earthy hops. Too thin.

This to me didn’t taste like the bottle was fresh. I was tasting quite a few beers but this had almost a stale smokiness to it.

Pours a very dark ruby-red color, with a small head. A nutty, caramel aroma. Slight alcohol detection. Rather sweet body, a very malty caramel character. Not very complex, but solid.

12/27/2007: Atwater Winter Bock has a very nice clear honey amber color with a moderate, diminishing beige to ivory head that produces creamy and dense lacing. A sweet caramel malt and butter aroma is quite enticing. The flavor is also sweet and tastes much like butter toffee covered popcorn. There are also hints of maple syrup in the aroma and flavor as well as lightly roasted malts, fruit, and some even bitterness in the finish. However, it is a bit grainy in the middle. The body of this beer is medium to medium-full and is smooth and mellow on the palate. Overall this is a balanced and decent bock beer from a pretty average brewery.

12 fl. oz. bottle from Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #12 for this beer...
