Sweetness all the way. The roasted brown sugar and caramel flavor blend together so well. Iíve been buzzing my local beer distributor about Poconoís caramel porter forever. Now I finally have something comparable to that, from the same great micro brewery. Taste great for a beer with heavy body. Bohemian from New York taste like caramel water when I drink them together.

Bottle courtesy of doclock. Pours amber/red with a rich off white head. Smells sugary with some oranges, lemons, dough and pepper. Tastes roasty and nutty with a nice malt character complimenting the hoppy peppery finish. Mouthfeel is thick and chocolatey on this one.

Stegs new/old Brewhouse Bock -- brewed in the 19th century tradition.
Basically they have dug up some old recipes and are releasing four seaonal brews this year.
The Bock is dark amber in color and has a pronounced malt taste. I understand it is over 6% alcohol but does not taste it -- I will have a few more to determine the alcohol content... It is a very drinkable quaff - and as it just arrived on the market it is very fresh - kudos to the Lion Brewery. BTW this brew is only available for the next few month in Pennsylvania.

This is a very good local bock. At $18.99 a case, this canít be beat. The color was dark amber brown with a thin off-white head. The flavor was malty and this was really fresh, bottled just a week or so before consumption. Give it a try and Iím sure youíll like it. Recommended.

What a nice little surprise this one was.
Beautifully clear amber color, remarkable..
Very malty aroma with some caramel and maybe a bit of bread. Starts a little sweet, then the roasted malts kick in and it goes back to sweet malt again. Very nice brew here.
Liked this one a lot. If I could get this one here, I would drink it regularly.

Deep shiny copper, creamy light tan head. Rich nose of toasted caramel, soft plum, toffee, and bread dough. Flavor is very similar with a light back end bitterness providing balance. Medium bodied and smooth, soft carbonation, malty finish. Nice stuff. Thanks to Matt and Kenny for the bottle... fordest (2470) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - MAY 10, 2006
12 oz bottle via trade. thanks to kramer17801. Aromas were a little weak, maybe some sweetness and a lot of non descript maltiness. But the flavor really picked up. Caramel, still sweet. Slitghtly bitter of the finish, but the hops really take a backseat to the malt on this one. Pretty good though. Styles (2014) - Lincoln Park, Michigan, USA - JAN 27, 2007
Bottle courtesy of kramer17801. Pretty standard across the board. Amber, white head. Caramel and toffee aroma and flavor. Very clean, as this is over a year old and canít detect any flaws. Well done, easy drink. artistsatwork (25) - USA - APR 29, 2007
A case for $20 from Matty Beeryard. Itís nice to taste a brew from guys who know malt. MattShizzle (613) - Bernville, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 19, 2009
Bottle. Medium copper color - clear. Sweet aroma - hinting at maple syrup. Sweet malty -but not overwhelmingly so- taste.
