Just in time for the holidays is our special treat. A dark and chewy bock beer. Around November you’ll find ’chocolate bock’ on tap down at the brewery. The history of Bock beer is a complicated one, going all the way back the dark ages in Europe. In the 14th century, the city of Einbeck became famous for this style of beer. So thats where the name "beck" or "bock" has come from. No other beer has a more pure and intense malt character as a true Bock. Many large breweries in the U.S. have diluted the original strength of this beer, but we make the real thing. The body of this beer is rich, making it a good beer to warm up to during those "special" Iowa winters. The blackened malt that we use in it gives the brew a slight hint of chocolate. Its a smooth brew, having been lagered for over a month in our cellars, in true bock style.

Poured from a bottle. Dark mahogany hue with thin tan head. Nice chocolate aroma followed by some subtle chestnut. Semi sweet malt that has some earthy dryness at the very finish. Great flavor and very well balanced.

Pretty decent bock beer. Pours dark brown. Mild malty character. Chocolate is surprisingly understated.

Bottle. A- Malty, subtle toffee. A- Dark brown color, clear liquid, beige head. T- Iron, watery, malty, subtle bread. P- Medium body, average texture, average carbonation, boring finish. O- To make a short story long, a Dunkler Bock was one of my last styles to try. Searched for ever and everywhere to find one. Finally came across this a few days after I finally found a Dunker Bock (Anchor Bock to be exact). I loved the Anchor and was excited to try my second Dunkler Bock now. Well, this sucked. I expected it to have a fair amount of chocolate in it with some other nice notes but not so. It was very malty. Lots of blood/iron taste to it and very boring. A bland beer.

12 oz single bottle from Hy-Vee Wine & Spirits. Clear amber/brown appearance with a small tan head. Aroma of chocolate, nutty malts, vanilla, light caramel, light toffee and a hint of fruity esters. Similar flavor, moderate malt sweetness balanced by a mild earthy bitterness with a medium body. Good enough for me.

Since HuskerTan, jbuskirk and I didn’t find any Millstream beers around Omaha, and Millstream didn’t make it to the Great Nebraska Beer Festival, I was happy to find them at the Wohlner’s next to my hotel. Bottle. Clear brown color, tan head. Aroma of sweet cocoa. Taste has chocolate, toffee. OK.
