MarkR (68) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Bottle <P> Clear with a strange color that is akin to putting a few drops of brown coloring into a copper brew. Off-white head starts out well, then fades to a small ring around the edge. Overly simple, clean aroma of fresh malt, toasted bread, and caramel. Flavor is sharp, with a clean and fairly thin burst of bready malt, honey, and singed caramel. Small hint of nuttiness. Surprising amount of hoppiness. Not much malt depth. Finish has a slightly burnt note and some vague spiciness. A bit watery in mouthfeel, with a firm dryness on the tail end. Overall, a bit bland and thin for a bock. I expected something heartier from a winter/holiday bier.

Sweet and malt in the aroma, pale in color. Fairly hoppy. Not overly thick dryish finish. Nice clean strongish lager, but totally lacking in bock character.

egajdzis (5384) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 7, 2003
Dark golden color with a bubbly white head and some lace. Spicy banana, clove aroma. Very wheaty, reminds me of a dark hefe, and not what I was expecting from this bock.

wilkie (1208) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 6, 2003
Thin dissipating head. Coppery color. Weak flavor with some sweetness, but slightly watery. I am not impressed.

JPDIPSO (4956) - Wauwatosa, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 3, 2003
Dull amber color with cream colored smallish head. Rich caramel and light peat aroma - seem to fill the Bamberg style. Rich smooth feel. Dry, very dry malt flavors. Some malt sweetness mid swallow, that evaporates to an herb hops acidic/bitter end (somewhat pepper like). I think I need some german peppernut.

Hopistotle420 (1178) - Amherst, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 2, 2003
Orange copper hue. Small white head. Sweet almost spicy nose. Weird sweet malts first. Almost syrupy, light to medium bodied, honey, yeast, with a pleasantly hopped up finish. A refreshing bock, a nice winter brew.

DrGonzo (625) - Somerville, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 22, 2003
On tap. Clear brownish gold color. Malt, honey aroma. Medium body, fuller tasting than other bocks, spicy hop flavor bite, good malt backing. Not bad, had some spice to qualify as a holiday type beer.
