2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Bottle - Pours dark amber with a nice foamy light tan head. Nice sweet, bready, malty nose. Lots of toffee notes. Dark bread shows itself more in the taste, big pumpernickel notes, along with a subtle herbal hoppiness. A bit too sweet for my liking, but it’s pleasant enough. A little too much carbonation and a bit syrupy--detracts a bit. Overall a decent beer, though too sweet..

This beer has a nice darker amber color with a average head. The beer is sweet and malty with a light spicyness. Maybe a hint of sour fruit.

4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Serving glass: Poured from bottle into Frankfurter glass.
Appearance: Rich chocolate brown with creamy off-white head.
Aroma: Strong bready malt with cherry, chocolate, and metallic & spicy hops.
Taste: Complex and rich malts with chocolate, bread, caramel, cherry and dark fruit. Turns spicy and slightly bitter at the end.
Palate: Moderate carbonation, medium body that is very smooth, clean and almost creamy.
Overall: Fantastic Bock that even rivals many Doppelbocks in terms of its malty punch. One of the very few German-style Bocks around with its pure barley malts (no wheat, adjuncts or spices) and its original gravity of 16+.

Pure sweetness in the malt that dominates. Not much hops but bocks aren’t supposed to have much hops, great standard bock.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Overall, just okay. Odd taste at finish... maybe like cloves? I like some bock, but this one doesn’t overwhelm.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle from a Schell variety pack. Brownish with a tan head that holds modestly, not much lacing, nutty malty flavoe and quite good for the style
