I love dark brown lagers and ales. Michelob Amberbock is a nice example. Beginning with its aroma which is roasted, like fruits also. It has a nice full body, with a healthy reddish brown color, foamy and fuzzy. And, an excellent taste, deep, roasted, and with fruit traces.

Weak aroma; some roast and booze. Flavor is malty with boozy finish. Feels more than 5.2 abv. Not great, but beats the macro pale lagers when choices are limited at restaurants.

tastes like a watery lager with some color. can tell its a bad example of the bock in the 1st few seconds as what little bubbly head disappears quickly

Not terrible.... Considering it was Michelob. Malty and dark fruit aromas. Watery flavors. However I was expecting worse.

This was all my dad drank a few years back. Figured it’s time to give it a try. Pours a deep, clear ruby with about a finger of fizzy white head that dies down to a thin ring and leaves no lacing. Aroma is caramel malts. Taste is sweet malts and water with no real finish. Overall, this surprised me by being okay. Not good or a bock by any stretch of the imagination, but it drinks well enough.

boy...really not sure what to make of this. I figured Amber Bock meant some kind of dark, strong beer...Guiness-like. This one was a sheep in wolf’s clothing or at least in name. Mediocre at best.

While in Chicago I was fooled by the new design on ths label, it now says Michelob Amberbock ’Dark Lager’. It pours foamy head, not very dark, no detectable aroma. A mild and unambitious beer, not too anything except boring. I think this is what bock means in greek, boring. I’d swear this is Ziegenbock, bottled also by AB (Inbev) in Texas. We like exclusive names in Texas.

Bottle. Dark amber pour with off white head. Smells of a lot of malt. Taste of toasted malts with sweet finish. Best michelob I've had. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pleasantly surprised, as I was expecting this to suck. Pours medium brown with thin head, light malty aroma, taste is malt, caramel, slightly nutty. Mild bitterness and faint lingering flavor. Kudos to Bud for making something drinkable.
