Bocks have provided nutrition to fasting German monks during Lent for centuries. We don’t fast, we aren’t monks, and honestly, we don’t 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 i’ll 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.

gilsmit (5) - Tinley Park, Illinois, USA - JAN 21, 2015 does not count
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 (705) - 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 I’ve 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.
