COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Great Dane’s Uber Bock is a rich, strong, malty, medium- to full-bodied bottom fermented beer with low to moderate hops levels. Don’t look for a lot of flowery aroma or bitterness in this beer! The two base malts for this beer are Light and Dark Munich Malt, grown in Germany, these malts have significantly more depth and flavor than your typical pilsen or pale malts. This is combined with some Crystal and Honey Malt to add to its complexity. It is mashed in Twice so that the maximum malt sugar can be extracted and put into one beer. In the end the depth of character is front and center on this beer but the mistake and awesomeness is that it is BALANCED! It’s not too sweet, or too dry or too alcoholic!

Ughsmash (7154) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 12, 2013
On tap at Great Dane - Wausau and again in bomber form. Poured a lovely shade of garnety-amber with a tight-bubbled, smoked beige head. The aroma picked up semi-sweet toffee, caramel, and wildflower honey with peppery notes, herbal character, and toasted fruity accents.. warm, and I really enjoyed it. The flavor found chewy darker grain bread, caramel, and honey at the core, with peppery notes and some rougher alcohol around.. finished with a nice blend of grainy malts and a shot of booze. Medium-plus bodied with lower carbonation on the palate.. good balance, but rougher toward the back.. overall a very solid brew.

[Tap] On tap at the brewpub in Wausau. Medium amber in color with a quickly receding white head. Sweet and sticky caramel nose. Taste is of toffee, cookies, some light brown sugar and light alcohol. Well balanced and and easy drinker.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle:   Darker caramel, thick, moderate foamy sandy head, spotty lacing.   Rich sweet malty nose, some dark pitted fruit, bready, sweet biscuit notes.   Sweet start, malty, bready, biscuit, and very much a strong Bock type of beer.   Clean, thankfully not mealy or cloying.   Comes across as a big sweet bready, biscuity, and malty beer.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate to full.   Finishes clean, thick, bready, sweet but not cloying, with strong biscuit notes.   10.1% really?   Surprisingly tasty for such a big bock and not being overly sweet or cloying.   Thanks Bob!

Bottle at Yespr. Pours a hazy brown with a small off-white bead. Sweet and quite bitter. Lots of alcohol notes. Aromas of caramel and hints of Belgian hops. Medium to full bodied. Soft carbonation. Very bitter bitter finish.

Tap at the brewpub in Wausau. Slightly hazy copper pour with a smaller head. Sweet caramel and toffee - slight booze. A bit sticky. Warming - quite good!

Skyview (5242) - Papoose Jct, Minnesota, USA - FEB 2, 2010
On draught at the Great Brewpub in Wausau, Wisconsin. Pours a clear copper colored brew with a fast dissolving off-white head that leaves behind some spotty lacing. Aroma of sweet caramel malt, honey, a hint of butter and cotton candy. Taste is full bodied, hard texture with flavors of cotton candy, caramel malt, a hint of maple syrup and floral hops. Finish has a strong alcohol presence with a cotton candy and caramel aftertaste followed by an alcohol warmth. Just what the doctor order for -0°F northern Wisconsin weather.
