Strong head, dark brown almost black color. Malt. Very smooth. Almost tastes like a coke after the ice cubes melt in it..but in a good way.

Back 40 Bock pours red brown with a persistent head of small tan bubbles. Nose is rich and malty with hints of caramel. Taste is slightly sweet with a good amount of nuttiness. Body is thicker with light carbonation. Finishes with more of the mellow nutty slight bitters. a nice solid drinkable beer.

12oz bottle. Pour is red-brown hues. Aroma is flowery and malty. Taste is sweet, with fruit and caramel notes. Malt really hits on the back end, which is to be expected for a dark bock like this. Nice, crisp finish. An enjoyable beer.

I don’t know why i keep trying New Glarus beers. I am a big fan of Bock’s and this one fails to impress. Alcoholy taste not much in carmel hints nor is the aroma very good..

Shared by Thorpe429. Thanks Mike.
The beer appears a clear, light caramel shade of brown with over an inch of dense, off white. Excellent head retention and ample lacing. The aroma offers brown bread, malt, a faint hint of alcohol. Light in body. Simple and easy to drink. Not complex, per se but enjoyable and sessionable. A good pairing with brats and sauerkraut. I would have this again.

No aroma to speak of, did pour a nice medium brown with frothy off white head. Malty swett taste, no hope, medium mouthfeel and not very carbonated. Okay I guess, but I expect more from New Glarus.
