COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oktoberfest Lager: Robust, roasted, chocolate malt flavor, followed with a clean and crisp finish. Chocolate Brown. 15°

Beer Stories
History states that the first Oktoberfest was held on October 12, 1810 for the commemoration of the marriage between Crown Prince Ludwig and Princess Therese of Saxe-Hildburghausen. Keeping up with Erie Brewing Company’s German brewing influence, our brewer created Fallenbock. This brew is a classic Oktoberfest Lager which creates a harmonious marriage of classic malts and hops;resulting in a wonderful clean crisp flavor. Happy Autumn!

Bottle courtesy of beachbum25. Pours ruby red with a thin white head. Smells of tarte cherries, vegetal, some sweet malt, roses. Tastes of molasses, spice, some sweet malt, touches of cinnamon. Good!

ChainGangGuy (4374) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 12, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, dark reddish-brown body with a small, thinning, white head. Smell: Huh, pretty mild aroma here. Slight notes of dark malt, smoke, berries, and spearmint. Taste: Sweetish dark maltiness with a hint of dark caramel and chocolate. Touch of smoke. Berry fruitiness. Sweetish finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-thin body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: Kinda basic, at best. Aptly named, I must say!

A dark amber almost brown pour. A raisen aroma and light malt. A pretty nice flavorful beer thaat is pretty close to style. Full bodied and good carbonation. Overall good beer that I enjoyed.

CaptainCougar (7132) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAY 24, 2008
Pours a transparent dark copper amber with a thin, spotty-lacing light tan head. Mild aroma of lightly sweet toasty caramel malts and a touch of German hops. Body starts lightly sweet and caramely malty with some doughy yeast and a thinner, mildly warming finish. Doesn’t quite have the fullness of a true doppelbock, but is pretty smooth and drinkable.

Pours a deep amber color with an off white head. Aroma is malty, caramel, toffee, roast, and brown sugar. Flavor is malty, caramel, toffee, roast, and a sugary finish.

Goodgrief (1789) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - APR 12, 2008
Dec. 2007 - Dark brown pour with decent head and lacing. Strong aroma of chocolate malt balls...you know those "Whoppers" things that your grandma used to eat when you were a kid. The flavor was strong and rich...chocolate malt balls, some roasty smoke and some bitterness. Bordering on too sweet, but a nice wintertime beer. Like the Railbender, this is interesting. I must seek out more of these Erie beers...they’re anything but bland and boring.

12oz bottle, no date. Clear brownish red with a 1/2 finger quickly fading beige head. Sweet caramel, earthy hops, and alcohol are basically the aroma. Wait, there is a hint of chocolate. Flavor is caramel and raisins up front, a bit of chocolate again, alcohol (not detracting or hot in this case), and a semi-dry finish with bitterness peaking at a 2. Very low carbonation with a medium body. I like the style, so I think this got an extra point or two.

Was told that this was a ’chocolate bock’. Gave it a try I thought it was flavorless. But as a double bock. I think it was better suited. I’ll have to try this one again.
