3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

An affordable brew with more flavor than the "macro" bocks. Sharp, with a lasting finish. When I lived in IL and could get this beer daily it changed my perspective on cheap locals. I highly recommend this brew for anyone with tastebuds and a wallet on a budget.

What can I say about Huber Bock? Beware. You have been warned. This beer is dangerous. (see glkaiser and waolsen) Bad, bad things happen when you drink it. Huber Nights have been known to injure people and cause sever memory loss. Drink at your own risk. God bless you if you dare.

3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Huber Bock pours a deep brown with a tan head. Smells malty, roasted. The taste is malty again, with a hint of caramel. The palate is carbonated, but the roasted malt flavor lingers on your tastebuds. Goes down rather sharply for a bock, but still extremely drinkable. Quite affordable as well. This could well become my everyday beer.

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.

2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
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.
