Drake (11937) - Milwaukee, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 13, 2015
Bomber from the brewpub. Pours a deep, dark copper, clear, with a large foamy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of raisin, toffee malt, mild earth and dark fruits. The taste is caramel, toffee, toasted malt, raisin, dark fruits and a bit of coffee. Medium bodied.

johnnnniee (3816) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 8, 2014
Bottle from the brewery store labeled Bock Lager. Pours a crystal clear reddish brown color with a huge creamy tan head that slowly recedes to a cap on top. Aromas of caramelized sugars and brown bread with some faint floral hops deep underneath. The flavor is sweet sugary malt with a bit of a burnt edge to it. Light dark dried fruits and a hint of earth round out the flavor. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and a sweet touch of syrup mouthfeel. Nice drinker but needs a decoction or something to make it a bit more interesting.

thornecb (5543) - Marblehead, Massachusetts, USA - MAR 7, 2014
Pours mahogany into a snifter. Off-white head with medium retention recedes to hug rim leaving scant spiders. Sweet caramel and earthy nut aromas. Dry with bitter toast and caramel front to back and through the lasting molasses finish.

22 oz. bottle purchased at the brewery gift shop. Pours a sort of clear reddish brown with a 1/4" of dense beige head. Some lace. Caramel malt aroma with some yeasty notes. Sweet flavor. Lots of malt and brown sugar. Dark wheat notes. Full bodied and creamy. Nice drinking brew.

AirForceHops (6302) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - FEB 24, 2014
22 oz. bottle purchased at the source. Dark brown color with light retention around the glass. Aroma is sweet, malty, caramel and dark sugar. Carbonation gives a lightly creamy texture. Flavor is lightly roasty, grainy-caramel, mildly nutty. No bitterness, all malt. Medium body with a lightly roasted finish. Enjoyable.

Snojerk321 (2960) - San Diego, California, USA - NOV 10, 2010
22oz bottle. Pours a mostly clear toffee brown with a 2 finger thick off white head. Nose was quite roasty and held some dried dark fruits. Very soft with an unassuming finish, pretty tasty.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - OCT 11, 2010
Quite dark - I almost thought my order got switched with the stout. Very rich, fairly sweet and malty with a thick, rich mouthfeel. Good amount of hops keeps it from being cloying.

Goodgrief (2000) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - OCT 10, 2010
On tap at brewery. Dark pour with one finger head. Surprisingly cocoa flavored, dry with a slightly bitter finish. A fruity sweetness was not overpowering, making this a wonderfully drinkable brew. More roasty and cocoa based than most bocks, but nonetheless one of the more enjoyable that I’ve had.
