Der Erlanger Urbock ist ein kräftiges, geschmacklich fein abgerundetes Starkbier und mit seinem Stammwürzegehalt von über 18% ein Doppelbock. Der neue Jahrgang wird nach der Bergkirchweih zu Pfingsten eingebraut und lagert in unseren kühlen Gewölbekellern besonders lange bis zu seiner vollkommenen Reife. Im Oktober eines jeden Jahres wird der neue Urbock vorgestellt und dient in der Winterzeit als kräftige Labsal gegen die Unbillen der Witterung und als Trinkgenuß zu den Festtagsspeisen.

SHIG (3586) - Wasilla, Alaska, USA - OCT 27, 2008
Bottle @ LCRBM 08: Poured a reddish with white head. Aroma is sweet with malts and fruits. Taste seemed tabacco and malts, on the edge of being something more in my mind.

JorisPPattyn (7910) - Antwerpen, BELGIUM - OCT 26, 2008
No head left over very red-brandy coloured beer. Cognac, sweet malts, some faraway bread & leaves. Sweetish, leafy, lots of malts, all very classical, but then I get worts... Very sticky MF, very slick. Seems not finished, not fully fermented-out? German brewers are supposed to know about lagering, aren’t they?

Bottled. Nut brown, brief head. Lots of caramel up front. Sweet with medium-full body and lots of buttery toffeeish malt. Rounded and well structured, but caramel and butterscotch are very dominant.
