Bock beer, released in celebration of the arrival of spring, is an ancient and mysterious part of the brewing tradition. Over time, the term "bock" has come to mean a beer darker and stronger than the brewerys regular brew. This is the first time we have brewed a bock at Anchor Brewing Co., and we hope you will find it to be a rich and flavorful addition to our offerings. San Franciscos Anchor Bock Beer is virtually handmade by the brewers of Anchor Steam Beer, in one of the most traditional small breweries in the world.

Very poor examle of the style IMHO. Nice color but no head and the palate is pure metallic- black metallic.

Bottle. Courtesy of hopdog. Thanks Steve! Opaque dark brown pour with a small tan head. Nose is toasty but subtle with caramel, sweet malts, nuttiness, light choco notes and soft bitterness. Taste is equally roasty and slightly bitter. Dark chocolate notes, caramel, sweet chewy malts and chocolate covered peanuts round this out. Body is chewy and rich with moderate carbonation a medium-full feel. Finishes with more chocolate, caramel, sweet malts, and nuttiness. Some toasty flavors throughout the end as well. Very nice stuff!

Tejas (1005) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 19, 2007
Good appearance. Perfect head. Good balance between roastines and bitterness. VERY dry palate which I dont care for. Definite anchor flavor. Seems like a cousin of their delicious porter.

vanvenlo (1855) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 18, 2007
29 Apr 06 - Sweet malt and complex fruit hop aroma. Dark brown-red colour, good head and fantastic sheet lacing that stays. Light fruit malt and vegetable hoppy flavour. Stark malt and hop finish, a bit thin and a distinctive finish.

boboski (1095) - Alabama, USA - JAN 16, 2007
UPDATED: JUN 11, 2007 I was excited to get a six pack of this last spring but was not expecting to be wowed by the flavor. Pours a modest brown and mahogany tinged body, ruby highlights and a dwindling tan head. Blackstrap molasses leads the way in the aroma, along with notes of herbal hops, nuts and caramel. Flavor is outstanding, more focused on hop spices rather than bitterness, creating a frre roaming plane for the caramel malts to shine. Excellent mouthfeel and a bittersweet and long lasting finish. Very well made bock.

Lunkie (1923) - Glen Iris, AUSTRALIA - JAN 10, 2007
Hop malt aroma with smotky bitterness. Dark brown red colour with fair head and good lacing. Very bitter burnt malt flavour. Smooth palate.

UPDATED: JAN 14, 2007 Bottle. Very dark color but not quite black, khaki head that leaves slight to moderate lacing. Aroma is of molasses and spice, mouthfeel is pretty thin with tangy spice that moves into a thinnish malt, taste has caramel and coffee.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 25, 2006
(Bottle) Pours brown to black. Roasted aroma with hops, chocolate and a sting of sour coffee. A bit fruity and a small note of smoke. Malty flavour with liquorice/anise and some hops. A tiny bit minty with hints of herbs. Light sour finish.

iep (230) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - DEC 21, 2006
Very dark brown/black body with a small head which rapidly fades. Typical Anchor liquorice-like aroma with a nice malt profile. Quite sweet flavor with hops and some spice - mint leaves? Refreshing, with a light mouthfeel; not too heavy on the carbonation. Its not a bock as I know it, but it sure is a nice brew.
