On tap at Rowlands Calumet Brewery. The best of the brews I had on my visit but seems more like a porter than a dunkler bock. Clear ruby red with a thin taupe topper. Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, dark malts and brown sugar. Taste of dark roasted malt, chocolate, coffee with mild bitterness on the finish. Scubatrip (610) - Annandale, Virginia, USA - AUG 30, 2010
On tap at the brewery, pours a clear dark red with no much of a head. Taste is sweet, with notes of orange and cinnamon. Pretty good offering. phishpond417 (2088) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 19, 2008
This beer pours a dark black colour, full nutty light brown head. Roasted malts in the aroma as well a little toffee. Taste is dark, bold and rich with burned coffee grounds and dark chocolate. A fairly decent bock, lighter then what i would expect and very smooth. BDR (2534) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - MAY 1, 2007
Thanks to skyview for sharing. Sweet biscuit nose with a dark brown body. Sweet malty body with a faintly bourbon biscuit character. JK (6095) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - APR 28, 2007
My thanks to Skyview for sharing. Malty like a bock should be. Some caramel, sugar. It is definitely bocky overall, with all of the standard qualities. Very good, but it can’t compete with the best doppelbocks. Sweet, smooth finish.

Fourth stop during Wisconsin Trip #2 and one of 11 brews offered at this small town brewpub. Pours a very dark brown brew with a near white thick head. In light background there are some mahogany red highlights. Aroma picks up smoky toasted barley malts with scents of chocolate, nuts, and llight coffee. Taste is smooth with roasted and bitter malts in this medium body bock and a creamy finish. Kevin (2199) - Montana, USA - MAY 2, 2006
pours dark brown with a small head. a bit of something floral with the sweet nose. woody and smokey flavor with a lingering roast sweetness. a bit metallic in the finish but an enjoyable brew none the less. jewedekind (450) - Middleton, Wisconsin, USA - JUL 28, 2005
On tap at brewery. As Bob says this is as dark a coal miner’s rear. Pours a swirly brown and whitish head...all of Bob’s beers seem to have a true creamy head. Fragrant, but not that typical sweet malt aroma. Full bodied, welll balanced, with that distinctive spice that sets these beers apart. I disagee that this beer is of a dessert quality. I found it inviting, complex and very unique. With anise, black pepper, and cardamom. Great even on a hot day in July.

Deep chocolate brown with scarlet hues when held up to the light. Smells of sawdust, chocolate malt Whoppers, Hershey syrup and hay. Flavor is rich and sweet, with a touch of astringency as it slips from the center of the tongue. Some aspects remind me of a key lime cheesecake I had with chocolate icing dripped over it. The lime aspects account for the slight acidic lick on the sides of the tongue. Palate is a little thin but not distracting. Syrupy cola finish.

Tap at the American Club. Dark ruby color with offwhite head. Smells of chocolate, light roast, and caramel malt. Mildly hoppy.
