Bomber. Gold foil-topped 2007 edition. Hazy mahogany with a thin beige head. Sweet caramel nose, some chocolate and vanilla notes. Body is a bit thin. Sweet malt flavors, with caramel and some nutmeg and a light smokiness. Not bad.

2007. Sweet roasted malt aroma. Nothing too outstanding here, medium bodied, nutty malty roasted flavor.

nimbleprop (6160) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 24, 2007
Poured a dark, thick deep brown with a thin white head. I was expecting Christmas-y and Holiday aromas, what I got was the nose of a standard bock, malty and sweet with hints of brown sugar. Sweet and drinkable flavor, malty, sugary, touches of biscuit, clove, and nuts. This was a very standard dunkle, I’m surprised it hasn’t had better ratings. If you can still find them, grab one and see for yourself. My 300th rating!!

Pours a ruby color with a thin light brown head. Aroma and flavor of fruits, slightly roasted malt and boiled vegetables, the veggies ruin the whole experience.

beastiefan2k (2904) - Emerald City (formely NYC & KS), Washington, USA - JUN 28, 2007
Bomber, 2006, bottle # 3544 of 3800. Been sitting on the selves since but I finally decided summertime is a good time to enjoy this. Pours a thin, dark (reddish in direct light) brown color. A bit off white colored small head. Aroma is a light nuttiness and sweet light breadiness mixed with lagered frutiness. Taste has a nice full maltiness with faint chocolate chip cookie flavors, faint earthy and toasty aspects. A subdued, unoffending offering with a light body but enough taste. Finishes with a light grassiness, low bitterness. I got to say so far Rock Art has sucked big time so far but this is a nicely done, understated yet very quaffable brew.

fbennett (293) - Portland, Oregon, USA - MAY 2, 2007
This offering from Rock Art pours a murky dark brown leaving a thick creamy tan head. The aroma is nutty and sweet creamy milky aroma, ripe fruit, plums, raisins, with a bit of milk chocolate. The taste starts a bit tart, underipned fruit in the taste, creamy milky mouthfeel, nuts, brisk carbonation lovely feel on the palate. I’m actually really enjoying this beer it has a load of flavors that really mesh well together and leave you wanting more of this bock. A great offering from Rock Art one that I will buy a couple more bottles of

IMtheOptimator (1164) - Bethel, Connecticut, USA - APR 14, 2007
Poured an effervescent mahogany with a large fluffy/fizzy off-white/light tan head. Rather faint aroma of grassy hops and a bit of caramel. Flavor is lightly sweet with some brown sugar, smoke, and a bit of grassy hoppiness. Not much else to it than that. Pleasant flavor if a little on the light and predictable side. Overall I didn’t find it to be that terrible, just predicatable and unexceptional.

kkearn (1165) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 24, 2007
22oz bottle. Reddish brown; modest brown head. Brown sugar and caramel aroma. Thin, watery body. Caramel and malt flavor, with a roasted malt finish, Nothing special.

DocLock (8678) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 23, 2006
2006 version from trade. Pours hazy dark brownish with ruby hints. Aroma is roasty caramel malt, nuts, chocolate, nutmeg, cinnamon. Complex palate with the aforementioned flavors, getting spicier as it warms, but maintaining a solid dark roasty malt bill with backup spices.

CaptainCougar (7133) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - DEC 1, 2005
Pours a dark, barely transparent mahogany with a thin, light tan head. Has a sweet milk chocolatey grainy bock aroma. Body starts with a subtle earthy sweetness, turning more dry and sticky with a hint of cinnamon spice toward the finish. Nice authenticity and balance. Definitely one of the better Rock Art beers I’ve had.
