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%

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.

valpoaj (659) - Valparaiso, Indiana, USA - DEC 29, 2014
Bottle pour - smooth deep brown pour with a modest off-white head that dissipates quite quickly. Aroma is caramelized, bordering on burnt malts, biscuit...lots of overarching sweetness. Flavor is obviously heavy to the malt side of things...borders on being overly sweet, but such is my palate nowadays. There is the slightest of hop notes to add a bit of bitterness. Palate is mildly carbonated and has a bit of an oily presence. A style that Iíve strayed away from in recent memory...still not a go-to for me, but I will admit that this is a nice rendition of the style.

nuplastikk (4878) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 7, 2014
12oz bottle. Stained glass brown-amber body. Thin beige head. Sweet, caramel, toffee tones. Big malt sweetness, but remains drinkable. Pretty enjoyable overall, I could go for a sixpack of this any time. Rich caramel and brown malt tones, well lagered. Very enjoyable and well executed.

A dark but clear almost blood red copper color with a bit of white head. Smells of brown sugar, tart cherry, apple, banana, fig. Taste is a cross between a sweet brown sugar, caramel, apple, fig sweetness and a grainy like spiciness with just a touch of hop bitter. Tastes aren't real complex, just a light sweet with the light spicy and hops. An ok doppelbock. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma is dark fruit, berries and malts. The flavor is dark fruit, cherries, malts, fruit, a hint of earthiness and a mix of mild alcohol and slight tartness in the finish.

jeremyh70 (832) - Missouri, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Pouts a clear dark amber with two fingers of ecru head with good lacing. Malty, grainy aroma with some raisin and hint of spice. Big bready malt taste with some caramel, dark fruit and an earthy nuttiness. Graininess and an almost burnt character in the aftertaste, as well as very mild bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth with a light/medium body mad moderate carbonation. A solid dopplebock but I wasnít completely fond of the burnt grain flavor.

2014 bottle to a tulip glass. Pours a hazy red amber color with a small tan head. A deep caramel malt smell with some brown sugar. Taste is the same with a little prune and some roast. Little to no bitterness. Medium smooth mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Solid foppelbock. Lighter and easier to drink than most despite the alcohol content
