Bocks have provided nutrition to fasting German monks during Lent for centuries. We donít fast, we arenít monks, and honestly, we donít even know exactly when Lent occurs. But we are pleased to honor this tradition with Generator, our winter seasonal brew. Original Gravity: 18 Plato Bitterness: 25 IBU Color: 10 SRM ABV 8.2%

Pour is a dark red-brown with a huge tan head. Aroma is a nice caramel malt with plenty of dark fruit and a bit of alcohol. Flavor is a really nice dark fruit. Lots of sugar plumbs, raisons and a dark toffee coating. This was a pretty flavorful doppelbock and pretty spot on for the style.

Purchased at Bottles and Cans in Chicago, IL; enjoyed at home on a cold April night. Appearance is a dark amber with a thin off white head. Aroma is rich in caramel malt, sweet, faint. Taste is very good, great sweet profile rich in chocolate and caramel, biscuit flavored / rich. Good stuff!

Bottle. Pours brown with a tan head and aroma of malt and caramel. Taste is of toasted malt, toffee, bread, and dark fruits leading to a malty, caramel finish.

never get excited out the bock region, but iíll give it a fair shake .. . tan, mild foam .. . light molasses and toffee ... a decent bock but a bit simplified .. . . I was watching you while you slept. You look pretty stupid.

Great winter bock beer. Nice head in the pour. Darker beer, but not pitch black and intimidating to some. Very smooth and flavorful. Taste lingers for a while... in a good way. Very malty and not bitter at all.
