COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bock beer has a storied history, emerging in 14th century Bavaria and undergoing many changes in style. Our Bock is traditional — dark, rich, toasty and smooth with caramel notes from the malt– but with an extra addition of hops to lend subtle strength.

I had this in May at the brewery. Pours a dark mahogany with small head and some lace. Aroma of dark malts and peat. Modest carbonation and significant mouthfeel. Flavors of caramel, molasses, dark chocolate, chalk,, dark roasted malts, some astringency. Overall flavorful and bold, earthy with light smoke and a bitter finish.

Bottle thanks to crajun. Pours a dark cola color without any head. Malty aroma with some coffee. Taste matches the aroma. Dry finish. Medium light carbonation.

Tap - nearly black beer - fizzy pour - nose is thick and sweet - molasses, maple, fig, a lot of roast - flavor is sticky sweet, husky, vegetal - quite a bit of roasty character - doughy flavors - brown sugar - some sharp, contrasting bitterness - very messy and hard to enjoy.

Bottle. Head is initially small, frothy, light brown, mostly diminishing. Body is dark brown to black. Aroma is moderately malty (chocolate / cocoa powder, roasted grain, husks), lightly to moderately hoppy (grapefruit), with a note of celery. Flavor is heavily sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, slightly unclean. Medium to full body, syrupy texture, lively/soft carbonation, lightly to moderately alcoholic. What on earth...? Bock? Whuuuttt? In a blind tasting I would swear this is a porter/stout. It’s all chocolate and roast, with some grapefruity hops. And it’s pretty much pitch black. ANYTHING but "traditional", there is no way anyone would think this is a German-style beer of any kind (neither dunkler bock nor dunkel lager nor doppelbock nor schwarzbier). Much too sweet/unbalanced, and a bit sour-vegetal/husky, as with the other examples from this brewery. Heck, maybe they accidentally filled their Bock bottles with the Stout, that would make more sense. What a weird little brewery this is.
