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.

Poured into a tall glass to drink. The beer had a semi-cloudy dark amber color with bubbles and a thick creamy tan head with good retention and very good cling. It had a sweet malty aroma which featured caramel, brown sugar, and a touch of floral and grainy hops too. It had quite a sweet and rich malty taste which was somewhat fruity and floral as well, and had some banana tones. The beer was very creamy, with a smooth mouthfeel, that was wet and full, yet somewhat dry at the end.

This was a nice copper, brown color with a thin tan head. Caramel aroma with a slightly bitter coffee taste. I could drink this again.

Not a dark bock, but rich caramel color. Nice earthy/malty aroma with nice head and some lacing. Nice carbonation in the mouth feel with some bitterness in the aftertaste.

hayduke (3577) - Eureka, California, USA - FEB 23, 2010
From a 12 oz bottle courtesy of Strykzone. Poured a clear copper with a good sized tan head and excellent lacing. Nose is sweet caramel malts with a hint of ripe fruit. Medium body and moderate mouthfeel. Flavor is moderately sweet again from the caramel malts. The finish finally shows some bitterness and there are some odd lingering flavors.

Smooth easy sweet bock. Covers up the 7.5 ABV well. Looks great doesn’t have lots of smell. Would go well with a juicy burger. Only down side is it has a metallic/dry finish.

polomagnifico (1202) - Saginaw, Michigan, USA - JAN 23, 2010
Bottle. Aroma has notes of caramel, toffee, roasted malts. Dark amber brown hue with a small off-white head that mostly diminished and left little lace. Flavor is sweet with a mild finish. Palate is watery soft. Overall a below average beer. Aroma and flavor has an off note near the finish. Like cooked vegetables or metal. Lame overall.

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - JAN 18, 2010
Tap at Barcade: Deep orange with great clarity and an off white head. All diacetyl aroma- a butterbomb. Butter over a touch of toasted/ worty barley. Slick body, very buttery and grainy. The diacetyl smothers some pale mildly toasted barley. Diacetyl gone wild.

argo0 (11957) - Washington DC, USA - JAN 7, 2010
12oz bottle. Small tan head atop crystal clear copper body. Aroma is moderately sweet, caramel, molasses, some chocolate, light raisin, anise. Taste is moderately sweet, caramel, earthy/grass, some chocolate, orange, raisin. Medium body, light resin. A bit more bitter than I expect for a doppelbock, but tastes ok.
