COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
2008. Created by homebrewer Alex Drobshoff. Alex’s Brew is a bright copper German inspired bock with a complex, full bodied mouthfeel. Hints of rich plum and cherry aromas paired with its toasty, malt flavor make this the perfect beer to linger over on a cool evening.

Pours a deep copper with a whipped-cream consistency head. Aroma of sulfur, melanoidins, and caramel. Taste is very taosty/melanoidin with caramel overtones. On the back of the palate, this is a surprisingly bitter beer, which I don’t think of a bock as being. Perhaps it will be a little better balanced after it ages a bit. This is still one of the better bocks that I have had. Reminds me of some of the Gordon Biersch bocks, but with more taste and body. Not as good as the DIPA by a longshot (Ha).

By far the best beer in the 6 pack. Aroma is melange of malt with some caramel and some nice melanoidins. flavor is nicely integrated and balanced with caramel, dark bread, and a balancing bitterness. medium bodied. Very nice drinking beer.

Headbanger (3005) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 17, 2009
12oz bottle 4/17/09 (Binny’s Naperville)-Pours a dark amber body with a huge off white head. Aroma of roasted malt, nuts, and caramel. Taste begins with malt, caramel, and cherry. It finishes with more sweetness. This medium bodied bock is very well balanced and I agree with egajdzis that this is definitely a different tasting bock but still very tasty.

egajdzis (5196) - Spring Mount, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 16, 2009
Poured a clear dark amber color with a small, off white head that left light lacing on the glass. Aroma of caramel, nuts, roast, and some toasted malt. Taste of sweet caramel malts, toast, nuts, dried fruits, and a bit of alcohol in the finish. An interesting bock, not like one i’ve had before, but I liked it.

Pours a nice brown color with a tan head. aroma is malt, bread, caramel, roast, biscuit. Flavor is malt, bread, caramel, chocolate. Nice slick oily mouthfeel. Lots of roasty chocolate malts, but a touch sweet. Still a really nice brew.

Blaketj80 (78) - Oklahoma, USA - APR 15, 2009
UPDATED: APR 18, 2009 Pours hazy brow with thin white head. Smells of roasted malt and sort of sweet. Tastes sweet and slightly roast. It has decent body and finishes smooth. It is decent, but and lacks any great qualities.

Pours a dark amber brown with medium tan head. Aroma strong of malt, dried fruit, and biscuit. Taste is slightly sweet, but otherwise no big surprise. Mouthfeel is creamy to slightly oily. Solid beer.

Ruby copper brown. Nice looking tan head. Smells of wheat, spice, bread, pale. and dark fruity malt. Taste is sweet and malty. Bread, caramel, roast, nuttiness, and very subtle grape and cherry. Mouth is pretty agreeable. Good dry finish. Slick. Decent. Would like to try side by side with last years’ weizenbock. This and the DIPA make the 6er a re-buy.
