3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours brown with thin tan head. Nose is malty with mild cherries and roasted, caramelly notes. Flavor is sweet and malty, lip smacky. Slight undertones of roasted chocolate. Finishes with nice sticky sweetness.
Poured into a pilsner glass, the appearance was a semi-ruddy burnt orange to brown color with a one finger white foamy head that leaves some light semi-foamy rings of white lace.
The aroma starts with some semi-sweet bready to smooth biscuity malts. Dosed with some light honey and cocoa butter and then hopped with some super light grassy tones.
The flavor leans to the smooth bready sweet side of those malts. The grassy hops, once again yield such a low undertone, one may think they’re barely there. Bready malt aftertaste, sheepishly sly bitterness. Mainly the breadiness in the finish.
On the palate, this one sat sat about a light to medium on the body. Fair sessionability. Moderate lager smoothness. Carbonation feels good for what it is.
Overall, decent bock for what it is. Hits the spot but doesn’t really go above and beyond, still worthy of having again. 5000 (6900) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - APR 28, 2013
Bottle:   Darker shade of caramel, slight orange hue, moderate frothy off-white head, nice lacing.   Malty
nose, pale apple fruit skin, slight caramel and breadiness.   Bready and nutty on the tongue, mild sweetness, and oddly
enough very faint woodiness.   Malty caramel sweetness on the backside.   Not as heavy or bready as others, which I
like.   Body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Sweet malty finish, a little nutty, slightly bready.   Fairly nice for
a Dunkler Bock. mike67 (1287) - , New Jersey, USA - FEB 22, 2013
12 oz bottle. Pours hazy amber with a short-lived off-white head and crazy carbonation. Aroma is of fermented apple juice and hint of peppery hops. Body is medium and tangy. Taste is caramel malt and peppery hops. Finish is long and spicy. There is something wrong with this bottle. Trev (2023) - Lakeville, Minnesota, USA - OCT 21, 2012

Aroma: The nose is fairly sweet, doughy, some toffee/caramel, and nutty notes
Appearance: It pours an unclear dark reddish color withg a smalle head and light lace
Flavor: The taste is much the same, leans sweet, toffee mostly, and not much hop presence
Palate: The body is light-medium, it feels somewhat sticky, with a short duration
This is a decent bready and malty beer, but nothing exciting in my opinion. I certainly wouldn’t rush out for it again.
Brown sugar sweetness is a bit overwhelming. Next to no head, light reddish brown. Not much carbonation. Absence of hop presence. HighlanderOne (1396) - York, SC via NJ, South Carolina, USA - JUL 6, 2012
Poured from bottle. Faint aroma of bourbon and vanilla ice cream. Looks like root beer soda, head runs away fast. Flavors of toasted malt, molasses with hints of banana, oak, smoke and bourbon. Could use more carbonation. Good stuff - could be great with some tweaking. DasBierChef (1081) - Hudson, Wisconsin, USA - JUN 22, 2012
Not bad for the style, but still nothing too special in this guy. Sweet, malty, and fairly drinkable. Bif (2394) - St. Charles, Missouri, USA - JUN 21, 2012
Bottle- Pours a dark bronze color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, some caramel sweetness and bit of spice. Flavor of roasted malt with caramel sweetness and bit of vanilla. Mild bitterness and a clean finish. Fairly medium body, smooth and somewhat creamy. As it warmed, it seemed to become more robust. Nice beer, quite good for the style. Worth visiting again when I get a chance.
