This is about as good as bock beers get. Sweet, but not cloying. Malty, but balanced nicely with understated hopping. Perfect mouthfeel. GreatLibations (1854) - Last Supper, Arizona, USA - MAY 24, 2006
Pours deep velvet coffee black with a full, tan creamy froth. Aroma is infused with cocoa and coffee. Full nectar w/ residual effers. Flavors are dry with fruity cocoa puffs, rich coffee, a slight leathering, and sour dough bread w/ a nice bittering on the finish. Well ballanced. Drinks well cool. This stuff is awsome. Highly recommended. iamsancho16 (99) - USA - NOV 17, 2006
This is quite simply one of the best Bock’s that I’ve ever tried. The Anchor Brewery sure can kick out some fantasitc beers! SPDickerman (1239) - Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2012
Pours dark ruby-mahogany with a finger of brown head. Smells spicy with some solid malt sweetness. Taste hints of roast, lots of chocolate, caramel, and some spicy hops. Medium-bodied with a slick, wet texture and mild mouth-carbonation, Anchor Bock Beer finishes with some chocolate-like sweetness.

UPDATED: AUG 2, 2006 Enjoyed 2 pint glasses of this beer on draught at Frisco’s Cantinia in Columbia, MD in May of 06, and just enjoyed it on draught at the Anchor Brewing Company in San Francisco, CA in July of 06. Pours to a deep caramel to brown color, with a thick, creamy, off white head, and a moderate carbonation. The nose on this beer is very nice, with aromas of sweet malt, light toast, and nutty malt aroma. The palate is firm, with good sweet malt, toasty and nutty malt flavor. Body is very clean and round, with very light esters, due to the fact this beer is brewed with an ale yeast strain. Anchor Bock finishes with more really good smooth maltiness up front, then ends slightly cloying with a sweet and nutty edge that lingers. Very well done bockbier from a legendary San Francisco brewery. I really enjoyed this one, and hopfully distribution will be bigger for next year’s spring release. cazort (561) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 29, 2009
(Bottle) Wow. This beer got my attention with the first sip...and I can’t say I even like this style normally. Bocks can be terribly boring, but this one grabs you and takes you on an exciting ride! A rich, dark aroma, almost like worcestershire sauce, emanates from this brew. Normally, that kind of aroma signals a poorly-executed beer, usually one that is too sour. But there is barely any sourness in the flavour! And it is also, thankfully, not too sweet or too heavy! There is a fair amount of alcohol in the aroma, which I normally don’t like, but in the case of this beer it blends well with the other things going on. There’s a rich maltiness...and a very dry aftertaste. Overall, it is quite smooth, yet complex. Outstanding! Wulfstan (509) - California, USA - APR 17, 2008
After being unimpressed with my first couple sips, I soon found this to be excellent. It is almost opaque black, rather like a darker porter, with a fairly big, long-lasting dark tan head that slowly shrinks, never vanishes, and leaves very nice lacing. The aroma is alcoholic burtn caramel, toast, a hint of chocolate, caramelized prunes and other fruit. It is reminiscent of a milk or oatmeal stout but not quite as heavy. The taste is similar, with the same elements as above. It starts off rather dry with a light bitterness and faint sourness but becomes more full-bodied with a nice sweetness coming after a few sips. It has a light peppery quality in the finish, along with the toast, burnt caramel, fruit. The chocolate quality is exceedingly faint but, just barely, noticeable. It is exceedingly smooth and drinkable. Grzesiek79 (4276) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 23, 2012
Świetny ciemny bock z USA. Świetnie palony słód równoważy się z lekką nutą słodkości. Piwo przyjemnie rozgrzewa choć ma małą zawartość alkocholu jak na bocka. piana wielka i aromat palono-słodowy slugstout (18) - Zig Zag, Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2008
Beautiful dark beer, bottle poured with thick, creamy brown head. Smooth + Tasty. Slight hop linger with minimal hop presence. Chocolate and cherries, what a delicious beer.
