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 brewery’s 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 Francisco’s 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. Small off white head that fades pretty fast. Aroma is of malts, bread, raisins. Taste is of bread, caramel, raisins and malts. Very small bitter finish. Not bad but have had better

Wiśniowo-herbaciane piwo z ciemno beżową pianą. Aromat lekko wytrawny, winny. W smaku wytrawny dość ostry posmak

From Mar 2007 Pours from 12oz bottle a deep brown-amber with a medium sized head of foam that shrinks to a fine broken layer with some lacing. The smell is of roasted and sweet malt. The taste on first sip has some real nice malty things going on. I can taste some sweetness, roastiness and some toffee and there's just a touch of chocolate going on as well. They work very well together indeed. Further sips in and I get somewhat of a bitter bite from the hops which helps to prevent this Bock from becoming too sweet oh, and the chocolate is a bit more obvious....I'm loving it. Bottom line: This is a very good example of the style. I recommend it!

Pretty big fan, these guys don’t seem to miss much. I’ve heard this one’s hard to find so I was hyped to get to try it at a friend’s in the Marina.

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. I’m 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
