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.

Bottle to Samuel Adams glass. Pours dark amber with thin head, but it continues to lace. Cherries, bread. Nice coffee, chocolate with a bit of bitter finish. Alcohol is present and accounted for, could be a little sweeter. Very nice full palate with ample carbonation. A very good bock, nice to find this one.

Pours brown/red, thin off white head. Malty aroma, caramelly and bock-ish... Full bodied, malty flavour - very nice. Not something I usually go for but very good.

Toffee, caramel and plum scents. Appearance is well carbonated medium brown with creamy head. Flavor matches the nose well, with more of an emphasis on the caramel. Palate is creamy. Good.

twindadplus2 (602) - Wisconsin, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Dark coppery brown color with a film of a head. Spicy roasted malt aroma. Sweet malt flavor with a bitter sweet finish that lasts. Medium with an almost sticky mouthfeel. This is a very easy drinking, satisfying beer.

wickster (85) - fort wayne, Indiana, USA - DEC 13, 2009
I must say I really enjoyed this one. Very good bock. Nice dark coper color. Getting lots of malt, but a nice balance, not a total malt bomb or anything....I would buy this again!

This is a really solid bock. I enjoyed this more than most Sam Adams brews. Nice malty taste with just a touch of sweetness. Some bread type notes in it as well.

Pours clear deep amber/copper. Aroma of toasted cereal and fruit. Taste is the same. I found this to be an easy drinker. Good stuff
