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..... Mora2000 (6158) - McKinney, Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2010
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. bu11zeye (13029) - Frisco (Dallas), Texas, USA - DEC 28, 2010
(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!

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! dcschiller (2208) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - DEC 23, 2010
(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 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. mar (5415) - Dallas, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2010
