I’m not the biggest fan of Bocks and I’m certainly not a style purist, but this still seems off.Caramel and some brown sugar present. Rich and creamy, with a strangely heavy amount of citrus hops. cubs (10634) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - MAY 15, 2011
Bottle @ home. Bock ale?! WTF? I guess lush caught this too. Very lively, carbonated, white head with a yellow golden body. Quite sweet malty, lightly citrusy ale nose with some bitterness. Sweet pale malty, bock-like flavor with citrus notes that is an ale. Interesting beer and I am pleasantly surprised. I am still not sure this should be classified as a Dunkler Bock or even a Bock.

Bomber pours hazy copper/orange with large fluffy white head. Aroma is pear, apricot, raisin, spice, and toffee. Taste is similar to aroma starts very fruity into spice with a bitter dry toffee and nutty finish, taste is very sweet all the way through. For as sweet as this is I’d like to see a little more malt all the way through, otherwise a decent beer. drjay44 (3707) - Salida, Colorado, USA - JUL 18, 2010
22 oz. bottle. Pours a large, fluffy white head, over a slightly cloudy amber, (SRM 7) body.....nose is doughy, fruity with light plum, slight raisin, toffee/ caramel....taste is sweet malts (toffee/caramel, brown sugar) to start, then plum, raisin, finishing with a sharp and harsh bitterness, which lingers.....mouth feel is light to medium, hot alcohol arrives at the finish, carbonation after the initial burst is low. The bitterness and alcohol heat of the finish are off putting, and are the flaws in an otherwise nice beer. BJCP 6/3/12/4/6 notalush (5874) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JUN 30, 2010
Bomber - American bock...ale? - all style designation aside, this is an interesting brew - pours a hazy medium reddish brown - lively body that kicks up a substantial, lasting head - the aroma is all you would expect of a bock - lightly doughy - notes of caramel, toffee, raisin, date, a light bit of spice - a touch of earthiness - full carbonation, creamy mouthfeel - starts with sweet notes of caramelized sugars and date, a bit of fig - gets drier and fairly spicy through the middle - arriving late is some bitterness and alcohol spiciness that slightly derails the experience - lingering dry bitterness and caramel - turn down the bitterness and mask that alcohol in the finish, and you’ll have a killer bock "ale" here - for now, though, it is still decent.
