Keg @ Bull Falls. Deep chestnut pour with a small head. Nose is toasty, bright. Rich malt. A bit of dark fruits. Flavor has sweet, earthy malt character. Full bodied, a bit boozy. muzzlehatch (4969) - Beloit, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 13, 2016
16 ounce can from Trig’s in Wausau, drunk sometime between July 29th and 31st at my family reunion in Three Lakes, WI, from the can. OK I poured a little bit in my hand to make sure that it was, indeed, "bock colored". At least I think I did. I don’t know, between the heat and running around after my nieces to make sure they didn’t drown and trying to find a tiny bit of alone time the family reunion is already a bit of a blur, and I didn’t take reliable notes on any of the many beers I tried. But these Bull Falls samples really did stand out, mostly because they were a lot better than I expected. This had a lovely - very typical - caramelized malt nose, maybe some brown sugar and smoke, even through the hole in the can...it was nicely balanced between those sweet malts and a little bit of burnt/charred bitterness, though certainly slanted more to the sweet side...carbonation level low but reasonable...perhaps just a bit on the thin side, but overall a solid bock and easy to drink outdoors in the summer heat. madvike (3302) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 23, 2016
Can - Cola color with ruby highlights. Nose is sweet with a little raisin and medium toasted sweet bread. A little bit of roast and nuttiness. Taste is the same with a little less roast and nuttiness. It’s mellow and bready, with a touch of bitterness and herbal hopping on the finish. Pretty solid...one of the better Bull Falls I’ve had.

Beer pours a rich mahogany color with small head and some lacing. Deep rich chocolate on the nose with an earthiness, and hop scent as well. Beer is rich velvet smooth bordering on oily with a lingering hop aftertaste. Taste has notes of chocolate, with a hop finish. JPDIPSO (6293) - Wauwatosa, USA - JUN 19, 2015
Dark chestnut color with a moderate sized tan head. Aromas of toasted to lightly roasted malt, some caramel and mild dry herbs. Full feel. Heavier bock presents. Dark malts, and a bit of wintergreen hops. Strong dark caramel. Quite smooth. The malt lacks some richness and depth for what I am looking for in a great bock, but still a good bock.

Sampled from a can at the St. Paul Summer Beer Fest. Pours a deep amber with a yellowish brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of bread, sweet grains and a bit of caramel. Flavor has notes of lager yeast, bread, sweet grains and a touch of toffee. johnnymusky (1004) - Minnesota, USA - MAY 18, 2015
Taste was way better than expected...cola colored...smooth and refreshing....really nice stuff...(#481) crossovert (14006) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - FEB 15, 2015
473ml can. It is a sweet but not too sweet bock, crisp hoppy finish, not too much maillard reaction type soy flavors some bocks out of WI get. One of the more German-like and better WI bocks. sitzds (318) - - NOV 8, 2014
16 oz can poured into red solo cup for the short notice share with Justin and Morgan in FL. Brown body with creamy tan head that sticks, even to the plastic cup. Super malty aroma with notes of cocoa, roast, a little smoke, and bread. Taste is sweet - roasted malt with chocolate, plus a touch of leafy hop bitterness and alcohol on the swallow. Medium body, creamy and slightly oily texture, average carbonation, a pleasant touch bitterness on the finish. Bacterial (3060) - Twin Cities, Minnesota, USA - AUG 13, 2014
Dark caramel brown pour with a nice tan head. Big malty nose, big malty taste with a hint of booze.
