COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

arminjewell (8626) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - APR 23, 2015
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark reddish pour with off white head, aroma brought notes of caramel, toast, some dark fruit notes into a bit of spice, some vanilla, touch of grassy notes. Taste was a mix of dough, grass, dark fruit into some spice, caramel, toffee into a bit of dark fruits, finishing slightly sweet.

"Hits the spot in late fall with a robust malty backbone. Hops are light and earthy. Almost tasted spiced, and is very bready, slightly sweet, with some caramel and brown sugar as well. Better than a 42nd percentile brew."

Det här var en riktigt bra bock, smaken var kraftfull men ändå tjusigt balanserad, kroppen var stabil och upplevelsen total!

BOSSbrewer (2707) - Arkansas, USA - JAN 19, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours brown with a frothy tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is malty, nutty, and slightly metallic. Flavor is malty and some nuttiness. Slightly sweet but balanced with nice hop bitterness. Finishes pretty clean with some lingering bitterness. Overall, a nice beer.

snoworsummer (3253) - baltimore, Maryland, USA - JUL 19, 2015
Draft at the brewpub. Pours clear reddish brown with a fizzy off white head. Tastes like sweet nutty malt, some dried fruit, caramel, chocolate, very sweet with a light hop presence. Light body and low carbonation. Smells like sweet malt, nutty, and some dried fruit.

Jabah (207) - Winter Park, Florida, USA - APR 28, 2015
The best thing about this beer for me was the kick (ABV%). The balance of flavors were a little overwhelming, but Bocks are typically heavy in flavor....especially a double. It was good, but meant more for sipping or a change of pace beer. I also read a review about not mixing with dinner, but to enjoy on it’s own....which I tend to agree with.

Clear amber with a barely-there head. Caramel, nuts and dark fruit. A bit too sweet and one-dimensional.
