Since 1860, Schell’s Bock meant spring was around the corner. And until recently, tradition and climate dictated the seasonality of Bock beers. Today, with the ability to control strict brewing environments, we’re able to usher in a new tradition—August Schell Caramel Bock, available year-round.
This medium-bodied, dark copper beer sports a light caramel flavor with a hint of malt sweetness. We figured beer drinkers aren’t seasonal, so why should beer be?

scooterbub (1031) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - FEB 2, 2008
12 oz bottle out of a sampler pack. Has a dark copper color and a small off white head. The beer is slightly sweet and has a slight caramel taste to it. Overall, this is an enjoyable beer, that goes down smooth and is easy to drink.

jde123 (775) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - FEB 2, 2008
Bottle, an enjoyable Bock. Poured a dark amber color, with a rich sweet aroma of malts and chocolate. Not as sweet as I thought it would be, but had notable caramel notes. A decent beer that I could get again.

bluemooner (657) - East Bethel, Minnesota, USA - JAN 30, 2008
Pours a very dark amber color with thin tan head. Medium body with rich caramel flavor. Quite sweet but a good beer for once in a while. Pretty good bock.

WisconsinBeer (716) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Brownish amber color, minimal head. Flavor is roasted malts and caramel sugar. Has a slightly burnt note. Medium body. Somewhat sweet. Not bad, but not as good as some of the other Schell beers.

Tripplebrew (778) - Saint Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 17, 2008
Pours a light red-brown with a small amount of head. Aroma is burnt sugars/caramel and a bit of vanilla. Flavor is caramel and malts with a bit of bitterness to finish. The body is pretty light with some carbonation. An okay bock.

ChainGangGuy (4808) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Appearance: Pours a clear, reddish-brown body with a small, creamy off-white head. Smell: Aroma full of caramel, toasted malts, and apple juice. Taste: Carnival caramel apples with a toasted malt flavor and plenty of sweetness. I don’t pick up much in the way of hops here. Sweetish, apple juicey finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel. Drinkability: It’s an okay bock, but the sweetness becomes a bit grating in the long run.

Gregis (1281) - Stilwell, Kansas, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Bottle courtesy of csbosox. Pours a dark, cola-like, reddish brown with a frothy beige head. The nose is of slightly burnt caramel malt, light peat, and perhaps a touch of toffee. Fairly light-bodied with fine, tongue scrubbing carbonation and a lightly dry and astringent finish. The flavor is a dark, roasted caramel malt front with a burnt, peaty note and just a touch of hops at the woody, astringent finish.

dpjuart (1112) - Indiana, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2007
12 oz bottle. Pours dark amber with brown hues. Small, off-white head that disapates quickly. Sweet nose, caramel, toffee, and a touch of roast. Taste is much the same, caramel and toffee backbone with a touch of roasted malt. No real hop bitterness. Crisp finish, no real after. I just got the mix case at the local distributor, and it had the ’06 Snowstorm in it, so I have no clue whether or not this is new or a year old. Either way it is a decent brew, nothing special, but tasty nonetheless.

franksnbeans (265) - Columbus, Maryland, USA - DEC 23, 2007
Pours a clear copper with a small amount of white head that dies quick. Smells of toasted grain malt and a little toffee. Tastes the same. Light in the mouth with a lot of carbonation. Drink it all day if you like it but Id rather find a different beer to session.

BrianHagmeier (299) - Coralville, Iowa, USA - DEC 17, 2007
Pours a dark almost brick red with a noisy frothing head. Yes noisy....snap, crackle and pop. Nice sour-mash and malt nose. Full body gulps deliver a hardy malt flavor but if you sip it you can find a lot of little particulars. Rich caramel, malt, tanginess maybe a little metallic and some light fruit undertones.
