Did not know what to expect at all when I opened my first bottle. Saw it, bought it on a whim and am quite satified for the price. Chocolate, coffee, nuts, grass, dough, earthy, brown, clear, tan foam, medium sweetness, medium bitterness, full body, creamy, soft carbonation, long finish.

12 oz bottle. Pours a slight dark clear red color, slightly off white head. Aroma is sweet malts. Flavor is pretty crisp, malts, nothing super special about this one, but worth picking up a six pack to try.

Pours a nice, deep garnet-brown. A nice tan head that lasts for a fairly long time. Nose of malt and licorice. Medium body with a malty, chocolatey, licorice beginning, fading to a mild hop aftertaste. The hops are there, albeit lightly so, just as it should be in a bock. Overall, kind of like a chocolate malt for adults! I wasn’t sure exactly what to expect when I bought this beer, as it received lukewarm reviews for the most part. But I was quite satisfied with this beer all the way around! This might be the best American bock I’ve had from a relativley "mainstream" brewery. If you like the American bock style, by all means, try this one.

jjuf1853 (1262) - Land O Lakes, Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2010
Draft at International Beer Garten (Lutz, FL). Pours a reddish brown color with a dense tan head that leaves excellent lacing along the glass. Somewhat mild aroma of roasted caramel malt. Good flavor, smooth and easy to drink yet tasty. Roasted nut and caramel flavors with a fair amount of hop bitterness in the finish.

Clear reddish chestnut color with an inch of dense bone colored head. Aroma is caramel with a bit of pumpernickel. Taste is the same with grainy astringency to a bit of an extreme that causes a medicinal finish. $2/12oz

Bottle. Whow, this is great. I think this is suppose to be a seasonal beer but I believe they should make it all the time. It has a nice dark amber color. Nice lace and head. Good aroma and man, the flavor is nice and malty , with good balane. Now I remember why I love dark german style beers.

nick76 (4304) - Tampa, Florida, USA - FEB 25, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 26, 2010 The aroma is sweet and has brown sugar and malt with soapy hops to balance. The appearance is deep amber with a large foamy head. The taste is like the aroma with both the bread like malt and the soapy hops and has a somewhat cardboard finish. The palate is just right for the style. Overall a well made Bock but not outstanding.

BREWMUSKCLES (2359) - New Jersey, USA - FEB 25, 2010
bitter taste of dishwater hops enhanced with the tree bark flavor and spice characteristic that really makes this quite a decent brew indeed. a touch sweet and darkly as well as lightly fruity this beer seems a shock to be a bock. light and astringent seems the older brewers still remember what to do. had to buy another bottle to make sure this was for real!

zach8270 (3798) - Henrietta, New York, USA - FEB 24, 2010
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear brown with a thin tan head. Light and fruity aroma with some hints of caramel, roasted malts, and cocoa. Bitter roasted flavors at the start. Lots of roasted and nearly burnt malts over top of a rather bitter and peppery hop flavor. Some very mild sweetness moves around the palate as well, but mainly you get the roasted malts and hops. Bitter and crisp aftertaste with a lingering and rather dry bitter finish.

sebletitje (7473) - Enghien, BELGIUM - FEB 23, 2010
pours copper/burgundy, white head. aroma is hoppy, mild malty- toasted scent, some grassy notes. flavor, light hoppy mouthfeel, not an intense toasted malts palate but one that adds a nice malty profile coupled with a modest touch of caramel, pale malts and hints of fruits. A mild lingering bitterness in the finish. Ends a little thin compared to other German Bock.
