i had this up in madison last night. it was darn warm up there. it would make a nice winter warmer. it doesn't mesh with breadsticks too well, but anyway... a little coffee adds a bit of oomph-da. it's nice. smooth, sweet chocolate/toffee, with a little spice and coffee to provide a welcome pecularity.

Good stuff, once again, from New Glarus, who constantly delivers with quality product. A lovely reddish brown in the glass, but oddly there's not head at all. It looks rather Coke-like. There's a light chocolate malt aroma, but the flavor explodes with toffee, caramel, chocolate, all lightly sweet and with a hint of bitterness. The folks at Shiner Brewing need to try some REAL bock sometime, like this stuff. The 7.3% abv is pretty well-hidden, as well. I can scarcely taste it.

UPDATED: JUL 12, 2004 Brilliant mahogany, quickly dissipating head. Malty sweet aromas, very subtle spicy hops. Gingerbread, toast, roasty coffee flavors. Don't be so humble, Dan, call this a dopplebock.

dark in colour thin quickly discipating head, malts in the nose somewhat watery. Same goes in the taste. Probably the best thing about this stuff is that it is very easily drinkable.

I'm not a big bock fan. But this one was smooth. Head vanished quickly but left a nice lacing.

Thanks wawood! Medium to deep brown with reddish accents, OK head that died fast. Nice aroma, somewhat sweet, notes of chocolate and dark fruit. Flavor matched, more chocolate at first, becoming fruity and sweet as it warmed. Bocks will never be my favorite, but this was a nice beer.

Uff-da indeed! This is a surprisingly good beer despite the unassuming label and name only the priveledged can understand. Malty rich, beautiful color, a very nice bock! Think I'll have another if it comes my way again. Recomended.

Poured nice and smooth with a nice ag sized head. Color was a darker brown and when held up to a light you could see through it. Taste was chocolaty and smooth. I like and would recommend to anyone.
