COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The “Back Forty” is property commonly found on the outskirts of the Wisconsin family farm. Here uncultivated acres wait prime for adventure- forts, tree houses, rope swings and first kisses! A place to run away, to camp, to climb, to build, to play. Not actually home but not too far away. That’s the Back Forty. The beer you hold is similar both dark and adventurous still smooth and familiar. Here’s a beer you can enjoy without pretense or explanation. Every mind requires some acres of possibility, space for dreams, the great escape, everyone needs a Back Forty.

OnWisconsin (132) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 30, 2012
A perfect bock. Black in color which did not pour thick but rather thing. Not much head from the pour, about 1/2" finger. Aroma was a nice simple malt aroma with very little hop noted. Taste was a perfect balance of the malt and hops. Very good bock. Mouthfeel is very thin which is common in the bocks.

ryecatcher (651) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 18, 2014
Bottle. Pours a medium-deep chestnut color with an off-white head, superior retention and lacing. Nose is caramelly malts, German hops, mildly metallic. Mouth is medium bodied, those same caramel malts, dates, mild sweetness that fades quickly to a toasted bready pumpernickel body . In the Dells, there isn’t really much craft beer to be found besides those from New Glarus... and I could think of far worse problems. Nice little bock.

fidemaster (257) - Naperville, Illinois, USA - AUG 18, 2013
Pleasant aroma, of malt, caramel, toffee. It has a deep cola like brown color. Starts off with a nice sweet caramel flavor, then you get a rich malty taste like cereal. It has a nice spicy herb finish. Solid beer
