Pours with a white head. Nutty malt aroma. Very nice nutty taste with good amounts of alcohol and malt. maniac (3800) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - DEC 16, 2005
Nutty aroma with a cloudy dark amber color and a creamy white head. A sweet malty flavor with a nutty aftertaste. hershiser2 (3265) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - DEC 13, 2005
On tap at Mellow Mushroom, Charlottesville, VA. Pours light amber with no head whatsoever. Looks flat and quite plain. Slightly malty aroma, ordinary, with no hoppiness. Not much of a flavor, other than a simple amber or bock beer (which frequently relies on the ordinary and plain itself), with slight maltiness. Bland. Oh well. Note: this is NOT their "Fall Bock" beer. hurleymanvw (101) - Raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 13, 2004
This bock was great. Very amber in color with a light hops smell and a decent head. very crisp taste not too bitter. It was a very smooth beer for high content beer. TheBeerGod (6224) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - OCT 12, 2004
UPDATED: OCT 15, 2004 Had this at St. George Brewing in their sampling room. *** Also, while picking up some cask conditioned Porter today (10-15-04), Conor gave me a bottled sample of this. Thanks Conor! Amber body. Nose is light spicy hops and a pleasant maltiness. Bit of mild grassiness as well. Taste is malty with more of the spiciness coming through. Crisp at times but still a bit chewy. The alcohol is there but not overdone and leaves a bit of warming with it. Finishes well with milder malt and hop spice with minimal bitterness. Very good beer!
