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.

Poured nice and smooth with a nice ag sized head. Color was a darker brown and when held up to a light you could see through it. Taste was chocolaty and smooth. I like and would recommend to anyone.

Finally the along awaited for Uff-da bock has finally come to my house.Thanks to Wawood.Medium brown color with a light reddish hue to it.The head was small and short lived but did leave a small swirl in the middle of the glass.Malty caramel aroma with a slight dried fruit presence.The flavoe was malty caramel and a bit thin bodied.There is a light chocolate tone to it but it doesn't get very pronounced and the coffee that they mention doesn't come on until the tail end and it's a bit weak but the hops do manage to make a nice mild appearance and i guess over all this is a pretty decent brew,very drinkable in volume.I think i could drink this brew everyday.Nicely done but needs just a slight tweek to make it better.

aroma is caramelly. slightly nutty, slightly earthen. Dark red/brown color. Medium sized light tan head. Medium carbo retention after pour, flavor slightly stronger than aroma (I dont have the best nose on earth), sweet burnt carmel flavor not overly strong - Nice finish - if I had to guess the ABV I would have been way off due to the smoothness, I would have guessed around 5 - at 7.2 its a job well done (as usual) by New Glarus

Rich, caramelly malt aroma with hints of chocolate. Deep red in color with an avg.-sized off-white head. Nice lace. I probably shouldn't be rating this beer after eating raw onions, but what can you do? Flavor matches the aroma. Rich, well-balanced brew. More on the malt side than hop side, but there is an alcoholic zing that keeps things interesting. Some faint hints of bourbon as it warms. This is a beer with complexity and worthy of my recommendation.

Bottle pours a deep garnet red with a small head that dissipates rapidly leaving no lace. The aroma is malty almost resembling maple syrup with a hint of ripe banana. The flavor is caramel and maple like. The palate is ever so slightly rich and clean finishing. Another fine one from New Glarus.

Another GABF sampled one ounce marathon. Tellin' ya it ain't always easy to get the best out of a good beer this way. The strain on my face must have been hilarious at times - trying to smell from this narrow vessel and filter out the noise and other distractions. A good beer, this I could tell. Good malts used. Fine aroma (from what I could tell, though some imagination was used). Gimme another. Maybe I'll even make my way to brewery to give 'em all another chance.

Deep red. Bready nose, some toffee. Lightly chocolate, very malty. Lightly sweet and tart, finishes with a strong toffee character. Nice palate, lightly creamy, quite nice.

JahNoth (1039) - Rochester, New York, USA - SEP 6, 2003
Deep rich mahogany color with minimal head. Sweet aroma of raisins. Strong maple syrup flavor with dark chocolate and a bit of hazelnut coffee. The sweetnes definitely pick up as the beer warms and masks some of the alcohol. I feel flush

UPDATED: NOV 18, 2003 Bottled. Whew! This is the first ”big” bock that was worthy of the name. There's a slightly hazy beer-bottle-brown body under a transient ochre head. Funny, I can't taste anything that says “coffee,” but instead a fruity alelike nose and tastes of raisins, rum and maple syrup. Also a warming alcohol presence and a slighty winey finish. Maybe the difference is that my bottle had been cellared a few years, but this tastes more like a microbrewed porter or a young barleywine. So try holding on to this for a while, and see if it doesn't do the same for you!

Great aroma, the coffee came out, predominantly. Some carmel notes. Good head. On the palate, the coffee still predominated over any chocolate. Fairly smooth, as far as alcohol was concerned. Didn't feel to heavy, either.
