Rating from 2010. Nicht von der Narragansett Brewing Company selber, sondern von der Cottrell Brewery in Pawcatuck, CT gebraut. Die Farbe ist schön dunkelbraun mit cremefarbenen Schaum – wie es sich für ein dunkles Bockbier gehört. Nur der geringe Alkoholgehalt von 5,4% scheint mir für ein Bockbier zu wenig. Der Geruch ist schön malz-betont trocken-süßlich, dabei angenehm fruchtig nach Trockenpflaumen bzw. roten Früchten. Im Antrunk ist das Bier etwas flach-wässrig. Zum Hauptteil kommt eine vollmundige, aber immer noch etwas wässrige Malznote mit angenehmer Süße hinzu. Zum Nachgeschmack wird das Bier immer mehr karamellig-süßlicher und geht schön in die Bockbier-Richtung, wenn auch etwas schwach. Die typischen Aromen finden sich trotzdem: Angenehmes Süße-Malz-Verhältnis, untermalt mit schönen vergorenen roten Früchten, leicht milder Schokoladen-Karamellton und eine ausgewogene leichte herbe. Zum Nachgeschmack hin kommt eine ganz leicht saure Note hinzu, die sich im Gesamtgeschehen relativ lange hält und das Gesamtbild, das sowieso etwas schwach ist, trübt. Ansonsten wird der Nachgeschmack etwas herber, dazu angenehm karamellmalzig und auch schon etwas alkoholisch-schwer – aber wie gesagt etwa flach!
→ Netter Bock, auch wenn ich das Ganze eher als Dunkel bezeichnet hätte, aber es ist ja ein amerikanisches Bier! Vielen Dank an Micha!

Can. This is a bad bock but its good for the price. Interesting to see Ganset coming out with these new styles.

Green can. I am finding more and more excellent beers in cans. Creamy malt tast and even pour. Also good for bumming it straight from the can.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JUN 29, 2012
Can. Pours a decent cheddar orange with a nose of wet autumn leaves and weak caramel. Flavor is wet autumn leaves, stale bisuit, and light rose. Average mouthfeel. Disgusting.

A wonderfully malty brew by Cottrell/Gansett. It is a nice medium amber color with good carbonation and sweet nutty aromas. Flavor is very malty - choc, caramel. Medium body. Roasty-sweet finish. Well made.

I enjoy this local on tap. A good presentation of a style that I’m not fully enamored with, but I enjoy on occasion. It’s a darker bock with a lower alcohol content of many the bock standards, certainly the doppels... It has a solid malty sweet taste to it with low carbonation and little hop bite. I like it and will continue to drink it from the draught.

From a 355 ml. bottle marked 04020934B1. It poured mahogany brown with a beige head. Decent lacing. A powerful aroma of malts and yeast. Not watered down. I would describe it as medium mouthfeel. Flavor is slightly bitter but also quite yeasty. Bolder than I would have imagined. It is above and beyond the typical Narragansett product. You be the judge of whether that is saying much.
