COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Keg and bottle: Filtered.
First brewed in 2005.
Ingredients: Finest barley malts, wheat malts, and fresh whole hops.
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.

Bottle. Dark brown with beige small head and some marks or lacing. Aromas of dark fruits and caramel, rather medium but very pleasant. Medium to heavy body, malty, roasted, caramel taste with right sweetness. Im not a big fan of bocks, this one was really good.

12 oz bottle shared by ebone1988. The pour is a dark brown with a thin cap of light tan head and a couple spots of lace. The aroma is pretty chocolatey. There is a nice dry roasted malt and a pretty heavy metallic tendency. There isn't a lot of other notable things going on. The flavor is surprising. There is a good chocolate and a nice malt profile. The metallic is there a little bit, but it's not as prominent as the nose. There is a dry roast that pops up about half way through. The mouth feel is decently creamy with a soft velvety carbonation and a lingeringly chocolatey aftertaste. I actually think I like the aftertaste better than the actual taste, but it's good ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Anchor Bock is one of those brews thats eluded me for a long time. Well, no longer. Bock was tonights pizza beer. Rich, German-style beer and salty, cheesy pizza is a combination I love. Anchor Bock was perfect for the fare. It poured brown with off-white bubbles up top. Aroma was full, rich, and fruity. Flavor had lots of devilishly tasty malty stuff. Chocolate, molasses, dark fruit, and caramel. The barley and wheat created a lot of sweetness, yet this beer managed to not be cloying. While its a big beer, Bock was balanced and smooth. Anchor, its been too long since weve done something new together. Lets get together again soon, yes?

Bottle. No detailed notes on this one - aroma and flavor both strongly reminiscent of chocolate-covered raisins. Small hop bite at the end. Not my thing.

jamaty (1988) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2015
Casi negra, opaca. Buen aroma, caramelo, malta y lupulos. En boca, sorpende por la combinacin de los tonos aromaticos florales y frutales de las ales de la marca junto con amargores secos de caf tipo stouts. Cremosa y sorprendente.
