Bottle from the Co-op in Davis, CA. Pours a dark brown with quite a bit of carbonation. Tastes of coffee with a hint of chocolate. Definite roasted malts with a hint of hop at the end. Solid brew.
Good charcoal roasted bock. Not bad but not amazing. ---Rated via BeerBuddy for iPhone.

12 oz bottle served fairly cold.
A lightly sweet Dunkle Bock that leans strongly towards a Schwarzbier but with exceptional notes of chocolate and coffee. There are also some nice roasted nut notes in the aroma. While the flavor leans towards a 7, the aroma is s solid 8.

ABC Orlando bottle with a January 2014 enjoy by date....ooops. Dark brown color with a small tan head. Aroma is light chocolate and molasses with some lurking coffee. Flavor has a nice espresso-like bitterness. Nice. slowrunner77 (12051) - Reno, Nevada, USA - SEP 22, 2014
"Light cocoa and coffee on the nose and especially in the flavor. Malt heavy and just a touch sweet. Pleasant and easy to drink. Could be one that I increase tr score down the road."

Pours dark cola into a shaker. Mocha head with medium retention recedes to skim surface. Dark chocolate, pit fruit and espresso aromas. Sweet chocolate and milk upfront turning to dry espresso in the lasting finish.

Cocoa, caramels, light notes of dark fruits, medium sweet, slick medium body, tasty, easy to drink. mbgrayson (774) - Anaconda, Montana, USA - MAR 30, 2014
Pours black, with a dark tan head. Light aroma of malts and dark fruits. Taste of malts and coffee, with a hint of licorice. Nice palate. A very good black lager. Thumbs up. Davhgbrew (948) - Seattle, Washington, USA - MAR 6, 2014
Dark brown to black color. Aroma is def chocolate. No coffee or chocolate in this brew...whoa they are right, that is cool. Tastes like a malty chocolate coffee porter. I would never guess this is a lager. Alc is present in the afterbreath. Medium to full bodied with big cocoa and coffee...so weird, yet so good. drowland (8758) - Georgia, USA - MAR 6, 2014
1/25/14. 12oz bottle from Trader Joe’s in Tallahassee. Amber pour with a small khaki head. Caramel and metal on the aroma, otherwise bland. Mild toasty flavor, caramel, hints of chocolate, more metal. Meh. Ratman197 (14842) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - FEB 26, 2014
Bottle poured a clear reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of cocoa, caramel, toasted malt and light coffee. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of cocoa, caramel, light coffee and a hint of earthiness with a smooth lingering cocoa finish.
