COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hearty and full-bodied this is a “Big” bier. Brewed in the Reinheitsgebot tradition, our Bock comes by its mahogany hue naturally. You can expect this bier to be complex and smooth with deep chocolate and coffee undertones, complementing the rich bouquet.

12 ounce bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear, dark ruby with a thick head of beige foam. The aroma is musty, earthy, butterscotch, and some toffee. The taste is fairly sweet and nutty. The finish is more on the bitter, sort of dry nut hull type of taste. Medium to full body with low to medium carbonation. Nice rings of lacing are left on the sides of the glass and there’s plenty of head retention. Very nicely done.

Not my favorite style, but it was still a pretty decent brew. Very easy drinking for a dunkler.

northropfrye (3248) - Steinbach, Manitoba, CANADA - JAN 16, 2014
Dark red orange body with some head, quickly fading, some lacing. Sweet malty aroma, bready. Taste is sweet, lagery, malty, some roastiness and coca, but pretty subtle. Abv well masked. Nothing special but a decent beverage.

Not sure I understand the high rating on this. Nice grains and honey aromas and flavors. Smooth and easy to drink. But still kind of boring.

Bottle shared by Jeff. Pours a hazy dark red with small head that quickly fades away. Aroma is very malty. Toasted bread, toffee, maybe some light red fruit. Taste is mildly sweet and malty as expected. Mostly toast and toffee with some light chocolate, caramel and fruit as it warms. Very smooth. Nice mouthfeel, slightly sticky. Quality Bock.

tectactoe (3125) - Michigan, USA - JAN 12, 2014
Bottle: thanks, Jeff! Copper, hazed body with a small red-ish color throughout, topped with a quickly fading, beige & gray tinted head. Aroma has notes of sweet toffee covered Raisinettes, light apple skin, some faint black cherry & other dark fruit with some more caramel in the finish. Taste is caramel & toffee malt up front, lightly sticky with controlled sweetness. Some cocoa powder, figs, & raisins with a little bit of toasty brown sugar in the finish. Not the largest fan of the style, but as usual, New Glarus does it all. Nice & easy drinking bock.

Deep red in color. Malty aroma with a hint of cherry. I’m tasting some fruits in this brew too. Mills chocolate flavor. Its ok.

Scipio (831) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Pours a clear, dark amber with a thinner beige head. The aroma consists of caramel, earthy malts, and mild fruit, to go along with hints of chocolate and coffee undertones. The taste is rather sweet. I find maple, caramel, chocolate, and still some earthiness. Aftertaste is a long maple. Medium to full in body, with a chewy texture, while having softer carbonation. This one is done well. While this isn’t my style, others will probably enjoy it more than I do.

nielsedd (79) - Wisconsin, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Pours a clear reddish brown with a decent beige head. Almost no lacing. Smells heavy of caramel malts and grains. Tastes sweet, with flavors of nut, caramel malts, and coffee. Don’t really get the coffee they talk about, but still very good.

Bottle. Pours a clear, light brown with minimal head. Aroma and flavor are heavy malts and caramel. Thick, strong and warming. Perfect for the horrible cold.
