Aroma is Carmel Chocolate hints of figs. Amber in color. Has a malty taste kinda chewy on the palate. Another top 10 by the Brewery only available in Wisconsin.

PhillyCraft (6272) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 18, 2016
Backlog, Bottle shared with PatrickFannon, Sampled during the Phils beatdown of the Mets. Pours brown red with a small to medium off white head. Aroma of plum, raisin bread, coffee, vanilla, bakers chocolate, rich malt, wood and light cinnamon. Taste is most of the same. Another nice beer from New Glarus

MetalNHopHead (1565) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - NOV 2, 2016
When conversation arises concerning American brewers who make exceptionally good German beers, New Glarus rightfully tends to be brought up in that conversation. Uff-da is one of the reasons New Glarus belongs in that dialogue. This is a rich, full-bodied Bock that pours a very dark brown and has a tan head. Malty, lightly smoky, and somewhat fruity nose. Flavor is complex, even for a big beer such as this. Chocolaty and syrupy malt, a subtle, smoky meatiness, dark fruits, and coffee. When you step away and look at all the taste profiles coming together, it all sounds a bit weird. However, this Bock is extraordinarily cohesive and approachable. Somehow, all the pieces fit.

From a bottle, pours a clear cola color with a tan head. The smell is caramel, molasses, dark bread. The taste is toffee, molasses, dark bread ending crisp and fruity. The body is medium and a touch oily with average carbonation.

drdisque (775) - Illinois, USA - SEP 28, 2016
On tap at the Mars Cheese Castle bar. Pours plain thin black. Flavor is rich, fruity, slightly nutty, but still fairly light bodied. Slightly dry finish. More on the Schwartzbier end of the spectrum than the bock, but good.

Gespuccian (141) - Wisconsin, USA - SEP 24, 2016
This is a great beer. Nose is dates, sweet malt. Pours a dark ruby brown, low head. Taste is smooth, malt, light roast coffee, sweet brown sugar or light caramel. On the tongue its both sweet and bitter, playing off the sides and middle of the tongue. Finishes slight crisp, with lingering sweetness. Its making me wish I drank more bocks.

MattChiasson (63) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 8, 2016
5oz draft sample at the brewery tasting room. Poured a medium brown, filtered clear. Very malt forward with a pleasant grainy/bready malt character, together with milk chocolate, caramel and chocolate. Hops integrate well in the palate producing a nicely balanced quaffable beer. Really enjoyed it.

Kind of malty smell. Malty taste with a light bit of hops. Pretty decent beer.
