Pours a reddish copper color with a good sized tan head, mostly dissipating. Nose is malt. Nice and creamy on the palate, this bock has a sweet flavor of caramel wrapped around the malt flavor. Tastes more like a dopplebock than a bock. Very good beer- pairs well with brats off the grill.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a white head that dissipates slowly to the edges. Aroma has lots of bread with some light caramel and a touch of sweet grains. Flavor has bread throughout with a decent amount of toffee, light caramel and a hint of sweet grains.

Dark caramel to umber color. Moderate sized, dense head of taupe bubbles. Sweeter aromas with caramel, brown sugar and just a hint of toasted malt. Interesting start, which seems rather dry, but suddenly is overtaken with sweetness of sorghum, caramel and malt. A sweet simple bock.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle dated 050816 into a Pilsener glass. Golden dark amber, dark but clear, plenty of carbonation, a tall tan thick creamy head that recedes slowly. Thick, clingy, creamy lacing follows the beer down the glass. Sweet aroma, dark fruits, bread / grain, floral, perhaps a bit of caramel. Moderate to substantial feel with a good presence on the tongue. Complex flavors; dark fruit, sweet, nutty, bread, honey. Finish is slightly (just barely) bitter with a mild finish. Very, very good. This is a top notch beer, true to the style.

Medium Malt aroma and flavor with a medium low body. Little to no hop flavor with a low to medium low hop bitterness. Overall a well balanced bock that leans slightly towards the malt.

Bad water equals bad beer. Contaminated. Groundwater in New Ulm, MN farm country is toxic due to livestock and pesticide run-off and saturation to the water table in porous soil that has been abused for centuries. Check the demographic data on cancer.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pour on tap, dark red pour with white head, aroma brought notes of grain, bread, dough, sour fruit, spice, hints of slight yeast, some trash. Taste was a mix of grain, sour fruit, bread, toast, some yeasty notes into a bit of earth, finishing slightly sweet. Something not working together well for me, but decent overall.

Pours a clear red color with khaki head. Well balanced with caramel and malty flavors. A tad on the sweet side
