Huber Bock has traditionally provided a creamy texture and rich flavor to beer lovers all over Wisconsin. It has a fine, malty body like the bocks of southern Germany, but is drier than the typical bocks of Bavaria. Huber Bock is made with Brewer's Two-Row Malt, Carapils Malt, Black Malt and domestic hops.

Pours a clear reddish brown, topped by a half inch head of light tan foam that reduces to a sparse cap and a ring in short order. Decent lacing at first, scant lacing after half the beer is gone. I find a mild sweet caramel malt and a hint of cherry wood in the aroma as soon as I pop the cap, but oddly after the beer is poured in the glass the aroma is somewhat diminished. The flavor is drier and thinner than the aroma led me to believe. It is more of a toasted malt, however the caramel and very little stone fruit come through briefly in the finish. The aftertaste is dry, however, and more like the toasted malt with a mild non-deScript hop presence. Medium body, gentle but ample carbonation

I was pretty pleased with this beer. I remember taking the Huber tour in Monroe a few years back and not being too impressed then or more recently with the Berghoff beers, but I thought this offering to be above average. It poured a dark brown with good white head. Aroma was of caramel malt and was slightly sweet. Taste was typical of bock-beer, with a quite pleasing caramel malt taste and good balance. Mouthfeel was good; and I must say that this beer surprised me in a pleasant way.

Sampled from tap on 11/11/2006 at the Joseph Huber Brewery in Monroe, Wisonsin... Very dark amber color with a dense, off-white head. Aroma and flavor are slightly roasted malt with a every so slight amoung of alcohol in the finish. Medium body and slightly creamy on the palate. On a side note: I am glad that I was able to visit the Joseph Huber Brewing Company and take a tour of the facility. It is the second oldest brewery in America, but has recently been bought by a Canadian and will be renamed to Minhas Craft Brewery...

theisti (3588) - Kansas, USA - OCT 6, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 1, 2006 Bottle. Deep dark amber color, not much head. Aroma is caramel and roast. Great traditional bock flavor. For $10 a 12 pack, this is the best beer value in the US!

Bottle. Pours a medium amber color with a minimal off white head. Aroma of caramel and malts. Taste is thin, slightly sweet and with a hint of citrus. Nothing special but easy to drink.

BBB63 (6507) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - SEP 29, 2006
Bottle and served in standard pint glass: pour a nice reddish brown hue topped by a small but lasting frothy beige head and okay lace. The aroma has notes of caramel and toffee malting, rye bread, some apple and plum, and a non-aromatic tobacco ester. The taste is bready, nutty and a touch sweet at first with some fruity undertones. What is shocking is how sharp the finish is, dry and even a bit acidic. With the spritzy carbonation, it is refreshing even if not what you would except from a Bock bier, Quaffable stuff.

Good malt flavor and rich dark brown color. I dropped a bottle on the basement concrete floor and it stained it brown (grin). Drier than German bocks. Little hop flavor.

heemer77 (5210) - Urbandale, Iowa, USA - AUG 23, 2006
UPDATED: JAN 10, 2007 Very dark body that shows some medium orange when held to light. The head is a fairly light tan color with lots of large bubbles. The aroma is fairly sweet with some bubblegum and a little bit of pancake syrup. There is a hint of old carpet. The taste is better than I expected. It has some roasted peanuts with pancakes. There is also a hint of light coffee. Pretty good for a bock.

Getting a paint/paint thinner aroma. This bock is decent given the price. Not thick or heavy, just a cheap bock that’s enjoyable.

Deep brown color with some nice highlights. Thick tan head that leaves excellent lacing. Aroma of roasted malt. Nice malty flavor but the sweetness you would expect never comes. The driest bock that I have ever had. Overall very nice and for the price an excellent beer.
