The “Back Forty” is property commonly found on the outskirts of the Wisconsin family farm. Here uncultivated acres wait prime for adventure- forts, tree houses, rope swings and first kisses! A place to run away, to camp, to climb, to build, to play. Not actually home but not too far away. That’s the Back Forty. The beer you hold is similar both dark and adventurous still smooth and familiar. Here’s a beer you can enjoy without pretense or explanation. Every mind requires some acres of possibility, space for dreams, the great escape, everyone needs a Back Forty.

Bottle: Pours a clear deep copper amber with a clingy-lacing froth of off-white head. Has a lightly sweet toasty caramel malty nose with some light noble hoppiness. Starts with a mild dark caramel sweetness with a good authentic hop bitterness and a smooth light chocolatey finish. Pretty true to style, but could use a little more body.

Bottle; Pour is hazy brown with amber highlights. Off white head - mild retention. Aromas are grassy hops, light bready malts and the feintest hint of dark fruit. The grassy hop bitterness is present initially; bready, almost nutty malts with that hint of toffee. Slightly sweet, ends bitter - and.....

Thanks to blutt59 for sharing this bottle. The beer pours a light brown color with a white head. The aroma is toffee, grass and some molasses. It smells about like a bock should. The flavor is toffee, grass and chocolate. The beer is also very dry, not sweet like a lot of bocks are. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Decent, but I expect more from New Glarus.

(12oz bottle, courtesy of blutt59) Pours a lightly hazy amber body with a small off-white head. Aroma of caramel, light honey, biscuit, and raisins. Flavor of caramel malt, earth, brown sugar, and grass with a dry finish.

DietPepsican (1591) - @ $13.99, Iowa, USA - DEC 26, 2010
Very dark ruby pour with a small off white head. Aroma is heavy on the toffee, chocolate, and caramel. Flavor has an up front roasted malt character that is quickly followed by sweet toffee and a bit of coffee. This somehow pulls off a great roasted profile while maintaining little bitterness. Very mellow finish, good carbonation, nothing that sticks out as bad. Very nice!

dekester1 (366) - Town of Maple Creek, Wisconsin, USA - DEC 24, 2010
Poured a nice dark red amber with a nice fluffy head that slowly faded to a frothy lace. Aroma of sweet malts. Taste is similar with a strong malty backbone a nice smooth finish. Mouth feel was very good. Overall, one of the better bocks I have tasted recently. New Glarus has done it again!

(12oz bottle courtesy of nuplastikk!!). Pours hazy dark amber/mahogany with giant off-white head. Some nice lacing and active carbonation. Aroma of hard candy, cooked banana, bread, and some dark fruit. Sweet with a little bitterness on the end. Thin bodied with a smooth finish. I would have liked this a touch sweeter-it almost has a salty component as it is. Super easy to drink. This could easily be my fall session beer.

blutt59 (6564) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 23, 2010
bottle via trade with ughsmash, amber color with faint sugary caramel nose, flavor is watery caramel with not much finish

Cavie (4718) - Arlington, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2010
Bottle courtesy blutt59. Dark brown orange color with a bubbly head. Very faint aroma, not much at all. Light malt and a bit of roast. Flavor is dry, watery and lightly malty. This is disappointing for New Glarus.
