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.

Oh, man, you donít remember this beer five years ago. Back when it came in returnable bottles? I used to get 24 for ten bucks from a liquor store in Chicago. Then Iíd save the bottles and return them. Those were the beauty times. Now, it tastes kinda shitty. The returnable bottles added a special flavor.

Pour is a nice looking dark brown with a white head. Aroma is roasty with slight hints of hops. Flavor is bready and malty. Nothing really puts it ovre the top but still it is half way decent. A plus is it only cost $8 12 of bottles. Good session beer when your just looking to knock back a few.

From a 12oz. twist cap long neck brown bottle, no bottled/freshness date. Made a good appearance, poured a clear rudy hued dark nut brown with a fluffy, foamy off-white head that settled into a semi-sticky thin lacing, medium carbonation. Had a toasted grainy and slightly fruity malt nose with a little nuttiness. A smooth, but thin light bodied mouth feel, not much of a body, average drinkability. Toasted grainy and a roasted fruity malt taste, a little nutty banana bready as well, not much of a hop presence, and a watery, toasted grainy finish with a little dryness lingering in the palate. I saw this listed in "All About Beer" magazine, given 90 pts., so when I came across this in the store, I thought I would try again, I hadnít tasted one in years. I guess I could have scored the taste lower, it is a bit watery and thin bodied, especially for a bock, but it is at a very affordable, cheap price and I felt it wasnít that bad.

On tap at Crescent Moon Alehouse, 3/25/06: Dark red with almost no head at all. Watery consistency. Sweet caramel malt is the predominate tone for this one. Starchy finish. Snoozer.

Draft at CM Bockfest. Dark brown color, tan head. Mild malty & roasty aroma...flavor is moderately malty with a slight carmel tone and a bit roasty. Somewhat sweet. Light bodied. Not impressive in the least...but not offensive or awful. Pretty tame and boring.

Sampler from bottle. Okay, a nice foamy head. Dark in color, but not in taste. In fact, a big load of corn sweetener that makes it a little flowery. No roasts or darkness to it. A butterscotch finish. This beer was not a part of my growing up in the Midwest (Huber didnít come to my part of Iowa) so I have no emotional attachment to it then or now.

As waolsen said below....this beer is something special. I canít believe they still make this stuff.... One of my friends climbed a tree and fell off a roof after drinking this stuff. There were multiple times we ran around the neighborhood streaking after drinking muliple cases of Huber. It does weird things to you...I think they put crack in it. But, it was like $8/case when I was in college, and it was a dark beer with at least a little bit of taste.... Drink with caution.

This beer is special. Not the special you get in finely crafted beer but the special that if you drink more than one x-file shit happens to you. I havenít drinken this since college. Our nights drinking satans concoction were call Huber Nights and go down in lore forever. It started with a case of Huber that looked like it was made in someones basement. There were labels on "at least" half the case and the caps just said BOCK. When you got to the bottom of the bottle there was enough sediment to build a sand castle. But the rating of 20 is well earned. The stories are kind of hazy and memories week but you knew when you woke up in the morning there would be stories to tell. To sum up this beer in one word I would say DESTRUCTION. There should be a warning label on this beer. It was tough going down and tougher coming up but God shined his light on me the first night I tried Huber Bock.

Draught pint, at Baumgartnerís Cheese Store and Tavern in Monroe, WI. Dark, clear walnut with a bit of diminishing head...light caramel-cherry nose, hint of toasty malt...nicely malty body despite the too-cold serving temp, a bit syrupy, sweet and lightly smoky, touches of molasses and hazelnuts...better than Iíd expect from Huber, at least on tap at the source.

I had this at the brewery early fall. I just found a paper with my ratings on it. Slightly thick and malty. Beer is always better at the brewery.
