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.

Overall, just okay. Odd taste at finish... maybe like cloves? I like some bock, but this one doesn’t overwhelm.

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

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours medium red-brown with a 3-finger creamy beige head that has awesome retention. Aroma is lot of rich caramel, light roast, crusty and doughy white bread, wood and earth notes and a hint of mild chocolate. Flavor is caramel, bread crust, sweet grain, sweet granola, mild chocolate, earth, light citrus, hay, grass and roast. Finishes with dark caramel, sweet grain and a little grain. Medium bodied with a light creaminess, somewhat dry finish and pleasantly mild carbonation. This is a really nice brew, tasty and rich, but not too heavy on the palate.
