Pretty true to style Bock. Reminded me of the Victory Hellerbock. Sweet with just enough bitterness. Felt a little alcoholic. Silky body, plenty there. Typical lager tastes. Not too shabby.

Tap @ brewpub. Clear amber body, thin whtie head. Strong aroma - caramel malt and classic tart bockiness. The flavor brings more bock tart malt notes with a light grass and stem bite.

On tap at the brewpub. Probably my least favorite of the evening. Slight retention on the fizzy creamy off-white head. Relatively clear amber. Perfumey sweet aroma. Stale, husky bock-like malt, sweet overripe banana. Sweet dough and orange/caramel flavor as well.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught, new brewpub November 2005: dark orange bronze with a fluffy, gray head that settles into a thin film. Toasted caramel and peanut aromas with wet malt and gooey/soaked barley in the background. Lightly bitter in the back of the throat with a rich tapioca pudding and toasted almond flavour. A much darker flavour than the appearance would suggest and the alcohol was increasingly subtle…those die hard 3 Floyds hop fans may not be able to palate this, but I thought it was a unique and tasty take on the style…way to branch out guys!

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at 3F. A clear amber with some white fizzy head. Nose is honey, malt, and some floral hops. Taste is like a honey biscuit. Semisweet, nice mouthfeel, but needs something more.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Served deep-copper and headless. Aromas were hops, honey and alcohol with malts showing up as dominant in the flavor. However, I felt the alcohol was far too prominent and drowned out much of the flavor. The beer felt honey-thick in the mouth, but dried out quick with astringence.
