COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Imperial American Bock
Shmaltz Bock Bock has spent months in a blend of bourbon barrels, including Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, and Buffalo Trace.

Barrel-aged Bock Bock gains its toasty, rich malt body and nutty caramel flavor from distinctive European malts, such as Vienna, Munich and Crystal, to make a traditional bock base.

keepersj12 (3133) - Sicklerville, New Jersey, USA - JUN 2, 2017
Pours a nice red amber color with a thin tan head. The aroma has dark fruit with some bread. The flavor is sour with some bourbon and wood. Lots of alcohol to burn the throat. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Visual: (cellared for 1.5 years). Pours clear dark mahogany brown without a significant head, ringed retention with a large island, very steady micro streams

Nose: super toffee barley malt forward, notes of bourbon barrel (lvl-7)-pungency

Attack: crisp, micro-tingly, thicker viscosity, heavy malt impression

Mid-palate: alcohol detection, tangy heavy (lvl-8-sweetness), raisin toffee barley malt, bourbon edge, wet woody zingy-sour

Finish: residual heavy sugars, bourbon-laced malty exhale

Summary: Great body and depth, solid execution. The dark fruitiness balances the bourbon malt nicely. Hits decently hard yet still sippable, although somewhat heavy halfway through the bottle.

Bottle, shared with Parksy. Deep tawny amber with a creamy light golden head that retains as a finger-thick pad. Brown bread and brown sugar in chewy abundance, warming bourbon provides lovely vanilla and oaky notes. Balanced, rich, and delicious. Shmaltz proves once again that they are masters at malty, full-bodied beers. Fantastic.

Bocks aren’t one of my favorite styles...but I enjoy a clean quality one. Shmaltz rarely disappoints. Semi-creamy texture, with some heavy malty/bready and bourbon flavors. Mildly hopped to cut down the sweetness a bit. Semi-cloudy medium brown appearance with an off-white head. This is one that I’d get again.

Draft at Craft & Draft. Hazy deep amber color. Boozy aroma. Taste of boozy caramel.

Bottle. Pours brown with a beige head. Aroma is vanilla and bourbon and malt. Taste is rather sweet with no real boozy notes in it. Boozy and whiskey aftertaste. Maybe too sweeet. thanks for sharing JB.

This does not represent a doppelbock. It is spme sort of booze bomb with no subtlety. Doppelbock has layers of intrigue. The bourbon barrel blasts away any malt or yeast notes that once existed here.

MarcoDL (5028) - NETHERLANDS - SEP 20, 2016
Draft at Slaters. Dark brown pour. Delicious aroma of bourbon vanilla, riasin and caramelised malt. Taste has thick sweet vanilla, raisin, caramelised malt, booze, ripe red fruit and a long finish. Sorry Germans, the jews have brewed the best doppelbock I ever had

beezydrunkit (29) - Alabama, USA - SEP 10, 2016
Draft at craft bar 30a. Pours copper brown. Thin head. Smells toasty, caramel, malty rye bread, nuts, wood. Taste is bourbon soaked wood, smooth malt character, caramel, really good. Strong flavor but mellow at the same time. Body is medium heavy. Light carbonation. Dangerous! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

4.5
onceblind (9856) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2016
Clear brilliant deep ruby with a thin off white cap. Amazing nose that’s bready but also a touch whiskeyed and oaked, a wee little sweet boozy German Amber malt tone and something delightfully floral. Huge flavor of oak barrel whiskey and lovely sweet bready German malts, a little caramel, a touch of toffee, a kiss of vanilla sweetness and a lovely bock-bready sweet and brown sugary finish.
