Were almost a month past their "best before" date. Good bock, a decent amount of hop bite for this style...I guess? Watery mouthfeel. Need to try fresh ones.

A little fruity and thin. Caramel and malt along with a little hoppy flavor.

amber, frothy white head, good sweet malt flavor, touch of carmel, hint of esters, balanced but not hoppy or bitter, complex for a bock
-------- /> Date: 04/11/2002

creamy malt flavor, low bitterness, malty but dry, great carmel character
-------- /> Date: 04/15/2004

still very rich carmel malt flavor with only a touch of sweetness and just enough bitterness in the finish to keep it honest

Pours a rich golden brown with a 1/8 inch tan head. dissipates quickly but leaves some persistent lace. Smell is malty and lightly fruity. Taste is malty and light sweet caramel. Fruity too. Lightly bitter in the aftertaste. Medium bodied with the caramel aftertaste. Stickiness lingers after itís gone. Canít put my finger on it but there is something in the finish that I donít like the taste of. Not bad. A pretty fair bock beer.

I was very sad to see Dogwood close and it was because of this beer. I first tried it as a sample at the Rusty Nail on Buford Highway and immediately went to Greenís and bought a 6-pack. While not the greatest beer in the world, it was intriguing enough for me to see if Dogwood could bottle a consistent beer. This was the only beer made by Dogwood that I ever had that didnít have a skunky bottle in the pack.

Poured a rather hazy amber color with a pretty light head, even with a vigorous pour. Not too much complexity in the aroma The flavor was very malty, which I enjoyed as I am not a huge fan of hops. On the whole however, this beer did not impress me, and will surely ot be one of my repeats.

I like wacky label art as much as the next guy, but this one seems to suggest that goats and beer bottles were delivered to Earth by U.F.O.ís...not sure why theyíre implying this, just seems a little bit weird... Cloudy, dark amber color, with a fizzy, buzzing, active, slim cream-colored head. In the nose, a toffee-ish sweetness, soft, sweet, fruity. In the taste, more of the same, well-modulated, nice and juicy...pretty nice bock bier, I says. Ah, nice flavor rising up with every sip. Medium bodied, nice, sweet finish. Got to hand it to Dogwood, UFOs or no, this is a beauty of a bock.

Poured amber with a moderate, short-lived white head. Rich of aroma of malts -- and thatís just about it. The flavor was much the same, a sweet caramel maltiness but just not enough hops to balance. And the beer was too thin for my tastes. Not a bad brew, but not remarkable in any way. For a brewery that I hold in such high regard as Dogwood, Iím disappointed. Iím even more disappointed, however, to see Dogwood closing its doors. Farewell to a great brewery.

Bottle. Brought this bottle back from GA and it was worth the trip. Rich amber color with a medium head that dissolved into just a thin sheet of light bubbles. The aroma is malt, smoke and yeasty. The first thing I get from the taste is a light hop bite then a full malt taste that blankets the tongue. Iíve noticed Dogwood uses malts very nicely, subtle and not too rich. I usually donít use "chewey" to describe a liquid but this description fits here. Caramel taste as the beer came up in temp.

Not much head out of the bottle. Its not that important. Dogwood beers have been great so far. Again, this is very good. Dark Amber color, Good hops/malts, smooth with nice gravity and a quality mouthful feeling. This is one of the beers from Ross whoís a great trader and should be congratulated for passing 400 beers a couple of days ago. Thanks Ross great beer!!!
