The Franconian Bock (“Frankische Bockbier” in German) is a 7% abv seasonal beer of the type brewed in northern Bavarian state of Franconia. Made with a blend of 3 malts imported from Franconia and German Hersbrucker hops and German lager yeast, it is a malty flavoured, medium-bodied and very drinkable strong lager beer. Medium amber coloured and extremely soft and round on the palate with a smooth finish that is typical of this style, the Franconian Bock will appeal to drinkers who are looking for a more traditional biscuit/caramel palate in this style. We made the Franconian Bock because our brewmaster visits that part of Germany every year and has fallen in love with their Bockbiers.

lesifflebiere (1550) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2015
Version brassée et vendue au pub sur Wellington St. à Ottawa. Belle bière claire cuivrée ou acajou, peu de mousse qui disparait de toute façon aussitôt. Le nez est de céréales caramélisées, de noix, de sucre cuit, et malheureusement un peu d’alcool vient se pointer en arrière-plan. Plutôt ronde en bouche, l’alcool se retire finalement, et des notes de noisettes et de boisé apparaissent. Une sympathique allemande costaude, bien faite, présentant une jolie complexité mais qui n’est pas exempte de défauts.

DuffMan (8817) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - APR 6, 2013
Bottle. Medium amber, crystal clear, average off white head that fades rapidly. Fruity caramel nose and palate, lightly toasty, moderately hoppy, clean finish. Fine.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 23, 2012
12 oz bottle from the LCBO, served in a shaker. Pours clear caramel with a moderate tan head that fades slowly to a thin remnant. The nose has a surprising hoppy note, along with caramel and a slight earthiness. The flavour is moderately sweet with an herbal maltiness. The finish is long, with notes of caramel and herbs. On the palate, it is medium in body with a smooth, milky texture. Overall, this is a fairly simple malty sweet brew but fairly tasty. 2012-03-22

HogTownHarry (6372) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - SEP 9, 2012
May 23, 2011 - on draught at the Brewpub in Toronto. Really attractive bright, clear and refractive copper, not much head. Smells like a bock - sweet grain, a bit floral. Taste follows, a little pungent with more bitterness, but very sweet, like a candy necklace. Average body, chewy, decent but low-level carbonation with a surprisingly long(ish) pungent floral finish overcoming the OTT sweetness somewhat.

worldbeertaste (1789) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 22, 2012
Deep dark brown amber with a quick disappearing head. Smells of light roast caramel, malt and alcohol. A light musky tone. Medium smooth and yet biscuity body. Smooth tasge of brown sugar, malt roast, caramel and and earthy biscuit that is slighlty bitter. Easy to drink, enjoyable and not overpowering.

Lagerboy (1809) - British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 7, 2012
Clear copper, off white head vanishes. Smokey caramel malty aroma. Rich roasty caramel malt taste, some light bitterness and dark fruitiness. Softly carbed, light bodied, low hopped. Light bittersweet finish. A decent, mild bock. LF (Lagerboy Friendly)

patricks110 (2359) - Alberta, CANADA - MAY 26, 2012
Amber body with a thin beige head and tons of carbonation. Sweet and corny mats with a few odd fruity notes and sweet caramel,toffee notes. Caramel malts and a bit of an off flavor. Overall, not bad, but not great either.

Strangebrewer (1098) - Chatham, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 31, 2012
bottle. Poured clear very deep copper with a small off-white head, little retention. Light malt aroma. Very slick mouthfeel, smooth carbonation, medium body. Flavour is malty with notes of raison but has a vegetal hoppines. Alcohol is well hidden.

kevinsenn (1854) - Waterloo, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 26, 2012
Bottle from store at the Toronto brewpub. Pours a clear light brown. Aroma of caramel and booze. Toasty caramel taste, which quickly becomes too sweet. Thin body, which is surprising for a 7% ABV Doppelbock. I only had 1/3 of a glass and that was enough for me.

solidfunk (6782) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - MAR 22, 2012
This tastes like strong alcohol and not much more. Really not that good. An empty taste with a touch of watery sugar. Not sure what the goal is here, but I am sure it’s not being hit. Bottle from the brewery store.
