Had a taste on tap at Blue Tractor in Ann Arbor. Tasty, if a bit on the round side. Full flavor.

Tap @ Blue Tractor. Hazy, red orange appearance with an off white head. Sweet, rich caramel malty, mild earthy hoppy aroma. Fairly sweet, toffee, caramel malty, earthy hoppy flavor. Good brew.

flatmatt (1466) - Northville, Michigan, USA - OCT 17, 2011
On tap at the brewery as part of a six-beer sampler. An amber beer with a white head. Has a sweet aroma with caramel and berry notes. Flavor again sweet berry, honey, caramel, biscuit. In the end, it’s okay, but that’s all.

Sample at brewpub
The best of the bunch was this bock. Luckily it is a regular based on the menu which means you should be able to get some regardless of when you visit. Of all the beers on the tray this is the one I would have been most likely to order a full pint of had I wanted to hang around.

Aroma / Appearance - The flat body is relatively lifeless and hides the spark within. The sweet nose is like a Mars Bar or caramel chew dipped in powdered sugar. Malt drives this beer from start to finish.

Flavor / Palate - Granny smith apples were a little alarming at first but then things settled down. Chewy half melted caramel flows across the senses. There is some alcoholic bite in the tail end. Even so drinking a couple of these would not be terribly difficult over dinner.

On tap at the brewpub. Pours a clear, brown colored body with a thin, creamy, beige head that dissipates quickly and leaves a light lacing. Aroma is lighter, but has a decent caramel backing with some toffee and a light earthiness. A bit nutty as well. Flavor is similar. A bit more of a richer caramel with some nuts and toffees up front. Toast comes out a bit more at the end as the caramel richness increases slightly and this finishes smooth and somewhat dry from a light earthiness that balances well. Medium length aftertaste following a medium body and a moderate carbonation. Overall, a decent dunkler bock. Nothing special, but drinkable with a nice caramel and light earth to balance the moderate sweetness.

Mostly clear dark amber. Big caramel malt. Big up front and lingers. The only potential flaw is it is fairly sweet.

chibuck (3510) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 28, 2011
I had this on tap as part of a sampler and this stole the show for sure...The beer pours a lightly clear and watery brown with amber highlights, light tan head, typical bock look...The aroma is decent lightly matly, a little brown sugar...The taste is amazing, there is a whole new taste to a bock, peanut butter. If you like brown ales or peanut butter give this beer a try, as its really unique and awesome.

Poured a medium and cloudy copper color with a small sized off white head. Toasty with some earthy and roastiness. Caramel and nutty.

hopscotch (10610) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - JUL 27, 2010
Draft… RBSG 2010… Clear amber lager with copper highlights and a small, fizzy, white head. The restrained aroma is of toffee, caramel and toasted tree nuts. Medium-bodied with relaxed carbonation. Leans a touch toward the bitter side of balance – caramelized, nutty and minerally bitter. Crisp, moderately bitter finish.
