COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This German-style bock has a robust malt character and a dark amber hue. Hop bitterness is assertive - just enough to balance the malt flavor. Enjoy one in celebration of Fort Worth’s true visionaries.

brokensail (10808) - Orange County, California, USA - FEB 19, 2012
The pour is a dark amber color with an off-white head. Lots of toffee and bread malt aromas with a touch of toast. There is a bit of a nuttiness in the background. Tastes much like it smells. Sweet bread and toffee with a hint of brown sugar. A nice nuttiness and perhaps even a hint of vanilla. It’s also a bit toasty with a mild fruitiness. Not bad at all.

dyetube (1181) - McKinney, Texas, USA - FEB 9, 2012
Bottle from halls liquors. Pours a deep brown with a thin off white head. The aromas are nuts, toast and gingerbread. The mouthfeel is bready, slightly sweet and has a medium body and low carbonation. Cheers!

rougeau13 (1992) - Richmond, Texas, USA - FEB 2, 2012
Dark mahogany-amber with a small tan head that fades quickly to a ring around the edge of the glass. Aroma of nuts, roast, caramel and honey. The taste is malty and caramel sweet with a mild bitterness. Medium bodied with a short finish. Decent brew, seems sessionable, but at that abv, it would be an abbreviated session.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 2, 2012
Bottle from The Creeper.
Pours a deep, cohesive mahogany with amber highlights. The nose is assy malt and roasted leaves from a dirty field. Flavor is a slightly smoky caramel-infused molasses that leaves a trail of smoked raisin and bread. Oily but average on the tongue. Not bad tasting, but the nose needs some work.

SudsMcDuff (5813) - .....Manchester United.........., Texas, USA - DEC 20, 2011
650ml bottle from D&Q .. Pours a dead murky brown .. no foam at all .. . aroma of old brown sugar .. . light mouth, goes down easy enough .. . meow, hi .. . an alright bock, but at 8-9 bucks a bottle, what a rip off for such a mediocre brew .. . another big step back from rahr .. . . I hope, when they die, cartoon characters have to answer for their sins..
