COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Introduced in October of 1989, the bock style far exceeded original expectations. This micro-styled bock beer has a rich and full-bodied flavor while being creamy on the palate. The nose yields a fresh, malty aroma with a hint of caramel sweetness. Hop bitterness and aftertaste balance the sweetness and maltiness. Berghoff Bock is made with Brewer’s Two-Row Malt, Carapils Malt, Caramel Malt, Black Malt and domestic hops.

Scrapersnbeer (1466) - Boston, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 19, 2013
Aroma of caramel/toffee malts and chocolate, approximately the same flavor, plus some starchy hopping. Dark reddish brown color. Mildly heavy, a welter weight for a bock. Drinks well with spicy food.

Patrickctenchi (3468) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 4, 2012
Pours a very deep brown...glows red when backlit, only a few, lonely bubbles of soap-like off-white head. Scent is dark caramel, cola, slightly nutty. Taste is malt, cola, a bit roasty. Quite drinkable, easygoing.....good flavour.

arkurzynski (1487) - Combined Locks, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 13, 2012
Deep brown with red hues. Sweet fruity malts, molasses. Flavor is syrupy malt, dark fruit, molasses, barbeque sauce, light spice, and a nice trailing dose of butter. Sweet, buttery finish.

Onslow (1135) - Kalamazoo, Michigan, USA - MAR 11, 2012
Pour from a 12 oz bottle. Clear dark brew that glowers a deep red when held up to a light. Small head that quickly fades. Aroma of caramel, roadted grain, dark fruit, molassas. Taste is sweet malts with a bit of roast, dark fruit, modest hoppiness blending with the sweet tasts at the finish. Average palate. Good stuff.

BeerInHeaven (134) - Brillion, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 16, 2011
pours a rich brown, about the same color as the bottle. tan head fades quickly but lingers on the sides of the glass. The aroma is a little nutty and burnt. Tastes the same as it smells. A little bit syrupy, but hey, that’s bock. An average bock at a good price.

cbfobes (2273) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - APR 4, 2011
Poured from 12oz bottle, pours a clear dark brown with a thin diminishing tan head, aroma is of dark malt with some roastiness, the flavor is of sweet malt with some caramel, overall pretty light on the mouthfeel, just not for me.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Bottle. Poured a dark brownish color with a small tan head. Aroma was roasted malts, nuts, and caramel. Flavor was nutty, with caramel and chocolate. Medium body, higher carbonation. A lot better than I thought it would be. Highly drinkable. Kind of thin.

thebeertourist (4774) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 10, 2010
Bottle from Monks Café, Wallingatan. Very dark reddish brown with a smallish head. Strong roasted coffee aroma. Caramel, molasses and coffee flavours. On the sweet side. Touches of originality.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JUN 16, 2010
(Bottle, Monk’s Café Sveavägen, Stockholm. Labeled Berghoff Traditional Bock) Dark brown colour with hints of red, frothy beige head. Malty nose with dark bread, dried fruit, raisins and caramel. Malty taste with notes of dark bread, ryvita, caramel, cola, a touch of dried fruit and a spicy finish with moderate bitterness. Medium body, smooth mouthfeel. A certain malt sweetness shines through. A decent and drinkable dark lager, not really exciting though.
