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.

Thinking about the contest for the design of this beer’s label still irks me a bit, but this review is about the beer and not some art fluke. Pours a fairly clear reddish orange with a creamy beige head. Aroma of caramel, toffee, butterscotch (not off-putting), and toast. taste begins with caramel and transitions into a more earthy flavor with a slight hop presence to it. Finish becomes woody with lingering caramel sweetness. Bitterness is pleasant and mild to moderate. Mouthfeel is creamy and slick at once, very dopplebock-like in feel, with a moderate alcohol presence. Good stuff, more exciting than "bock" makes it sound. Good.

(22oz bomber thanks to TCUfroggie) clear light amber with creamy tan bubbles. Nose of raisins, chocolate wafers, and cream. Taste of watery grain, umami, peppercorns, chocolate, unsweet, herbal, anise, not good. Stewed tomatoes too. Lots going on, but doesn’t go well together.

Mora2000 (5694) - McKinney, Texas, USA - OCT 12, 2011
On tap at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth. The beer pours a medium brown color with a tan head. The aroma is full of caramel and toffee malt with a little bit of dark fruit mixed in. There is also a little bit of alcohol in the aroma. The flavor is also pretty good. I get a lot of toasted malt, with some caramel and toffee mixed in. There is a little bit of chocolate and some pecan and hazelnut notes. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Draft at the Fort Worth Saucer. Dark, dark red with just a thin head. Rich and roasty with a little bit of an alcoholic kick. Caution. (#4340, 10/12/2011)

Cavie (3795) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - OCT 1, 2011
Bottle courtesy Fratto. Very glad to see this. Pours a murky orangish brown color with a brown type head. Aroma is sweet chocolate, nuts and roasty notes. Has the typical Rahr flavor, possibly from the house yeast. Chocolaty flavor with some roasted notes. Yeasty finish.

22 oz. Bomber Nutty malt with hints of roast and caramel and just enough hops to balance the sweetness. Medium body, palate starts soft and moves quickly into some fizz. Good solid beer. Nothing over the top but easy drinking and enjoyable.

Smokey, toasted malts, caramel and just enough hops to keep the sweetness at bay! Very crisp, clean and refreshing. This dark malty lager is just strong enough to make for a brew with a little bit of weight but nothing heavy. This is an easy drinking brew and a fine example of a traditional bock.
