COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This legendary beer style has a richness of history to match its rich flavor. The beer was named in Einbeck, Germany during a city celebration where the strong dark beer was being served. It seems that a bock (the German word for goat) entered the grounds unseen. Soon after, one of the villagers was knocked to the ground. The bock was standing nearby and to this day it is still unclear whether it was the beer, or the bock, which leveled the villager. <br /> Ingredients: Pale, Caramel, Cara Pils and Black malts, imported Hallertau and domestic Cascade hops. <br /> Available January through April.

Reddish brown with off-white head. Light roasted and caramel aromas. Malt roast, caramel, and mild alcohol (whiskey-like) flavours. Watery, with mild bitter finish.

Sampled at a beer tasting at a Hy Vee Wine & Spirits. Considering it’s Schell, this really wasn’t too bad and almost on style.

One of my favorite beers of the spring season, especially on tap. Very malty beer with hints of chocolate and roasted nuts. Absolutely delicious.

Narnad (1503) - Wonder Lake, Illinois, USA - MAY 12, 2009
Pours a brown color with thin, white film head. Aroma is a mix of caramel, very light citrus, some light notes of chocolate and heavier roasted malts and a light grainy hint as well. Flavor starts a slightly smokey chocolate, moves into caramel middle and ends with a very sweet malty note with some like bitterness. Carbonation is very fine and the beer is a moderate density. Overall a good offering that is very drinkable.

Dragonfly1 (498) - Colorado, USA - APR 19, 2009
Peoria Beerfest 2009. Sample pour. Light brown in color, faint head. Nice nutty flavor with some sweetness- very balanced. Nothing too complex here, but very nice flavor.

Clear copper with a creamy quickly dissolving tan topper. Aroma of toasted grain, pale malts and caramel. Taste of toasted English malts, toffee, caramel and a touch of alcohol. Goes down very easy and finishes up a bit dry.

rabba9 (115) - Chaska, Minnesota, USA - MAR 26, 2009
Aroma is nutty and caramel malt. Color is dark brown and amber. Tastes of malts and a slight earthy tone. Mouthfeel is smooth and goes down easily. I really enjoy this style, sweet yet very smooth.

daknole (10279) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2009
Bottle from stykzone, thanks a million Dave!! Pours a nice amber color with a pretty small white head. Aroma is full of malt, caramel, nuts and some oxidized metallic smell. Flavor is somewhat metallic with caramel, light hops and some nice nutty flavors. Metallic flavors and aroma stop this from being a pretty damn good beer.

Pours an amber red with little head. Aroma is metallic, beyond that not a lot. Flavor is metallic with floral notes and ginger.
