COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Desire coupled with curiosity can drive you to do many foolish things. Fortunately, opening a bottle of our Pandoraís 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, thereís a reason itís spoken about in mythical terms.

12oz bottle-thanks to JPDISPO for this suprise (I wasnt expecting much). Pours a deep copper/amber hue with 1/2 inch tan head. Very nice sweet, malty, sugary aroma with a noble hop bite. flavros are sugary, notes of grape, cherries, noble hops, caramel malts. I think this was a good example of a bock. my only problem with this one was the start of the flavors. It had a metalic start, but other than that, it was damn good.

This was one of the first beers that I had when I turned 21, but that was 6 years ago and Iím trying it again for the first time. Clear, Copper color. There is a soft foamy head that dissapates rather quickly (not that I really care about head retention). In the aroma, malt and yeast dominate, smells nutty. There is a toasty malt flavor that yields to a very dry aftertaste too quickly. I might like a maltier flavor, but the dry aftertaste makes it a Bock I guess. This Beer tastes fresh. I donít usually write a lot for mouthfeel, but the dry (yet not astringent), alcoholic mouthfeel is dominant in this beer. Overall, I really like Pandoraís Bock, I would just like a little more body. I think itís worth buying and enjoying. Itís a rather cerebral beer, if that makes any sense.

12 oz bottle. This is not my favorite Bock, but i have to say it was a good beer. There is a rich maltiness, with sweet brown sugar hints. The color was much lighter than I was expecting, but the flavors were all there. Overall I would say hats off to Breck.

MrBunn (2456) - The Wet Side of a Dry Town, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 20, 2009
Bottle. Pours a medium brown with a one finger tan head. Aromas are grainy with a little bit of leather and fruit. Flavor is sweet and dark malt with a bit of a plum like fruitiness that is pretty good. Iím not picking up much tartness. Finish is brown sugar sweetness.

After sampling 4 extremely average beers back to back, this is a pleasant change. The contrast is probably affecting my rating, but here goes: Pours red with a medium head. Aroma is sweet, molasses, toast, and faint apple skins. Flavor is nice, typical bock toasted flavor, caramel, spots of nuttiness, yeast rolls, slight burlap, hop pepper, and mild tobacco in the finish. Underrated, I think.

TomDecapolis (4477) - Milton, Delaware, USA - JUL 5, 2010
Tap at Breckenridge BBQ. Pours a translucent amber with golden notes and a medium creamy bubbly off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, toffee, nuts and caramel. Flavor of the same.

taphandle (1135) - Texas, USA - JAN 22, 2012
Brown with a decent head. Mostly a malt aroma with a smooth malt taste. Definitely a bock with only a bit of hops there. Not one of my favorite styles, but this one is smooth.

Poured a disconcerting brown with a wispy white head. Alcohol well hidden and really not bad at all if just a but pedestrian.

Bottle . Dark orange color, thin white head. A little sweet malty aroma, soft and smooth, medium body, light finish. A pretty good bock.

Light aroma of malt. Taste is malty, but also has nice caramel and bready tastes. Well balanced for a bock and has a nice palate.
