COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Desire coupled with curiosity can drive you to do many foolish things. Fortunately, opening a bottle of our Pandora’s Bock is not one of them. Once it is released, a wealth of flavor and complexity will spill out into the world. With a traditional bock flavor profile and a hint of hoppy goodness, there’s a reason it’s spoken about in mythical terms.

This was good, wasn't sure at first, actually got better when it wasn't as cold. Not a regular Bock drinker, but will try this again! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lubiere (9745) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 17, 2009
A dark reddish amber bock with a thin off white head. A classy dunkle with lots of nutty malt in aroma, fruity esters and light vanilla. In mouth, a nice sweetish malt with nutty notes, oily mouth feel and bananas. Medium bodied. On tap at Ballpark brewpub 24 Jan. 2009.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - MAY 7, 2009
Deep dark red amber with a good head and sheets of lacing on the glass. Aroma is a bit metalic along with fruits and caramel, malts and a bit of citrus. Not bad.

pkbites (673) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - APR 23, 2010
Dark, cloudy brown pour with little head. No head, no lacing. Thick pour, looks like iced tea! Aroma is soft: dates, prunes, danish. But soft. No malt or hops detected. Thick mouth feel. Almost a dessert beer. Not sweet, but nuts, dates, prunes, and bakery is tasted. 7.5% alcohol? REALLY? it’s no detected. No burn. If someone said this was non-alcoholic I’d believe it. Smooth throat feel. No malt or hops in the aftertaste.This is good, but not as hoppy, malty, or wheaty as most bocks. The "thick" consistency makes it a keeper, though. TRY IT!!!!!!

Bottle. Hazy amber hued light brown with a thin creamy light tan head. Aroma is sweet, caramelly with some nutty nutes. A full rich flavored bark with some chocolate hints. Full creamy mouthfeel.

Elwood (3027) - Leesburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 17, 2012
Serving: 12 oz. bottle from Total Wine Sterling. It pours a light red color with a thin off white head. The nose dry darker malt with some bread and a decent earthy hoppiness. The flavor lightly fruity with a little bread, malt, and biscuit. Almost like a slight heavier Vienna. Medium body with easy carbonation and a pretty dry finish. Nice and very drinkable.

Caramel, Chocolate, Yeasts and Malts. All of the flavors are good but none of them really jump out at you in any sort of way. Still a decent bock beer, but it’s nothing special

JStax (2773) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - FEB 6, 2013
Poured from a 12 ounce bottle. Pours a Ruby red with a beige head of foam. Aroma is caramel, sugary sweetness, and a hint at an earthy hop profile. Very subdued hop profile. Taste is malt forward with a nice earthy sweetness. Not as bad as the ratings indicate.

Great smell. Reddish orange.. White head. Great beginning taste.. Long partially bitter after taste. Sort of grows on you as you keep drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
