COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Is so hearty and headstrong you can stick a pencil in it! So take a moment to savor that deep caramel color, the distinctive, creamy taste. Availability: January - March

Very nice bock as they go, a little hard to find West of the ’Big Muddy’, but well worth the hunt. Strong and robust, hop and malts well balanced and noticeable, fairly high ABV.

I liked it a lot. The color is a beautiful wine red when held up to a light. It’s very smooth going down and has good flavor.

One of the best bocks ever made by a macrobrewery. Rich character, nice aroma. And hey,hey: flavorful aftertaste!

Ah. the picture reminds me of there old commercials, The beer so thick a pencil will stand in it. Amber color with a thick head of light tan bubbles. Aroma of caramel, toast and pale malt. Well bodied. Mostly malt flavors with a touch of biting hops to keep it honest.

I am not terribly impressed with this example, but it is a good beer for something to smooth over a night of Bud drinkin’
