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.

I go out of my way to get to Wisconsin to get to this beer, and I live in east Tennessee! This is a great low-carbonation beer, best served around 40 degrees, when the flavor really comes through. Wonderful with dinner.

UPDATED: NOV 7, 2005 Rerate update: have this one at 60 degrees and it doesnt get much better. The sweet caramel and chocolate malts headline the bill, with all other signiture bock characteristics and full mouth feel to seal the deal. Previously had this rated as a "4", but were bumping it up to where it deserves to be. Here are some notes from other tastings...

Aroma of sweet milk chocolate and brown sugar. Rich, smooth and very chocolatey flavor. A great body - a little oily and heavy on the palate. Cant trace the 7.3% alcohol. Also have had before and after smoking a Cuban. Its a great cigar beer. A solid bock. New Glarus knows how to do it right and continually makes world class beers.

orville (160) - Sun Prairie, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 29, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 7, 2007 Pours a very dark amber. This is a bold and pleasant beer, that has an intense chocolate flavor thats perfect for long winter days. I seriously challenge any brewery to out do this bock. This towers over any American bock that Ive had. Maybe because of my love of chocolate; come to think of it if you hate chocolate then steer away.

Bottle. A beautiful mahogany color. Velvety on the palate. Taste is great, especially the first few sips, but it remains good throughout. A chocolate taste with hints of fruit.

A truely great beer. Easy to find the taste of coffee and chocolate here. Pours very dark with a thick rich head. Warms you up and fills you up. Definatly not a beer for consuming in mass quantity. One of my favorite beers hands down.

Bottle. 12 oz. Split with and courtesy of the one and only Vinnie V. Cracked this sucker open while watching the Phillies beat up on the Mets. Pours a dark mahogany amber with a thin, one finger beige head which recedes to a soapy, bubbly surface slick. Aroma of fresh baked raisin bread, ground coffee, bittersweet cocoa, sweet and savory butter, cinnamon, and toasty malts. Flavors follow through on the raisny, butter toast notes and end with huge amounts of toffee, vanilla, chocolate, and bready hints, Medium, well rounded body with a robust, coppery, and a tinge tart. Outsdanding introduction to a truly oddly named beer style.

A great bock, dark in color but low in carbonation. Tastes spicy with sweet, almost chocolaty undertones.
