COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

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.

Ughsmash (7092) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - OCT 9, 2005
Draft at brewery. Clear deep burgundy pour with a solid creamy off-white head. Very nice lacing. Aroma picked up some roasty malts and light caramel, but was rather weak. Flavor had a nice caramel base, some coffee bitterness, and light smoke... quite nice. Palate, however, was watery and somewhat cola-like. Short mildly bitter finish. Definitely palatable, and the finest of Huberís offerings.

This is a nice,nice Bock beer! Very drinkable and smoothe as a prom queens thighs... Nice full-bodied beer flavors without any lingering unwanted skunk!

A local watering hole in Champaign is Huberís. Once thought it great because in had Guinness on tap in the days when I believed Guinness rocked. This beer is a deep copper color with a transitory off-white head. Lightly carbonated but thin and watery, the flavor and aroma were malty, sweet, roasted grain, some caramel. Not a bad drink but nothing laudable.

A very dark bock with a deep reddish tint, this sadly loses its head almost immediately. The aroma is roasted malt with a touch of milk chocolate and a whiff of smoke. Itís got a nice malty, chewy body, but unfortunately finishes on a light metallic note. What that supposed to be the hops?

SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUN 28, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 23, 2006 In the bottle at the 2005 Bad-burek party. Dark in color (caramel coloring) without all the pesky taste. Thin in body but does have a little coffee-roasted flavor. Light in the aroma category. Schellís bock runs rings around this one. UPDATE: This beer was on tap at the 2006 Huber Haus Bockfest and used for loggerheading. Iíve got to say, it leaves a little to be desired once it is poked with a hot iron. I donít think thereís enough malt to caramelize in it.

A big chewy bock, especially considering the low price. Pretty decent in spite of a slightly metallic aftertaste. Matly and dark. Pretty good.

Dark bock, but not much body. Pleasant flavor. Aroma is more pronounced than most. I used to drink this stuff in college ($5.00/case of returnable bottles). I liked it then and I like it now. Not great, but better than many.

Truly the best tasting Huber beer. Now, thats not saying much, but give it a try, and you may find that if you are at a back yard bbq, and all there is to drink is cheap macrobrewpee and this - your decision will be simple - drink out of the toilet! Seriously though, this beer is Not Terrible, definately drinkable, but Not Even Close To Great. Little sweet, somewhat coffe-like, and only to be consumed frigidly cold - see note. ***Important Note - Never let you Huber Bock reach critical temperature, or you will not be able to avoid the gag reflex.
