3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
12oz bottle, thanks to nuplastikk. Shared with b3shine. Mostly clear, brownish red color. Thin khaki head, leaves good ropes and dots of lace. Medium-plus body. Good, kind of crisp lighter carbonation, and dry finish. Toasty, nutty, kind of chocolaty malt. Some dark fruit. Nice moderate bitter taste, light sweet. Great bock. Had high expectations for this, and they were met.

Bottle to snifter (shred by DrSilverworm). Looks good for the style; a semi-transparent copper with light beige lacing. Smells solid; semi-sweet and malty with some toastiness as well. Tastes like it smells with a nice, smooth mouthfeel. A good example of the style.

The savory malt matches perfectly with the alcohol tang. The balance is impressive especially considering the boldness of the flavor.

Pour is reddish brown with a small tan head. Aroma and flavor are both sweet malts and grains with some slight hop bitterness. Alcohol is hidden well. Very basic, but well done.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a deep red/amber with moderate head and lacing. Aroma was of sweet malts with a hint of hop fruitiness. Taste was of sweet malts with a twinge of caramel that then moved into a mild slightly fruity hop finish. Palate was nice. Overall, a nice bock offering from Dan @ New Glarus.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
12 oz bottle pours a cler brown/copper color with moderate off-white head but no lacing. Aroma is as full of roasted malts as a bock should be, but I didn’t detect any chocolate and very little coffee. Taste is slightly sweet with medium to light body and average carbonation. A good honest dunkler bock from a great brewery, but maybe not quite up to the superlative name.
