This smoky beauty devastated me on the first sip. Even pouring it was a real treat - gorgeous color, just the right amount of head. As others have noted, it's a real food-accompanying sort of beer - it just cries out for robust meats and fish. This Urbock deserves to be a legend.

Like so many of the finer things in life, the first bottle of this stuff is awful. The smoke is overwhelming and unpleasant, and the result is a concoction worthy of the ole' sink sacrifice. But give it just one more shot, and you will discover a beer of astonishing complexity, with varying layers of smoke at different stages of the tasting process. The underlying bock is of the highest quality. Indescribably delicious with pork chops or smoked ham. The best beer out of Germany, and a top five brew for me.

This is still something I'll need
to get used to, if possible. Too much
liquid smoke flavor. Oakes (18873) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 20, 2000
Hugely assertive. I might like this more than the marzen....................
