Just in time for the holidays is our special treat. A dark and chewy bock beer. Around November you'll find 'chocolate bock' on tap down at the brewery.

No other beer has a more pure and intense malt character as a true Bock. Many large breweries in the U.S. have diluted the original strength of this beer, but we make the real thing. The body of this beer is rich, making it a good beer to warm up to during those "special" Iowa winters. The blackened malt that we use in it gives the brew a slight hint of chocolate. Its a smooth brew, having been lagered for over a month in our cellars, in true bock style.

Smooth medium-heavy body. Low smell. Simple chocolate taste, slightly sour. Slightly bitter finish.

It looks : creamy, fluffy beige head, 1 very steady finger. I mean nothing will make it die. Love it. Body is burnt copper/dark honey colored. About 60% opacity.

It smells : A malty nose, with toasted and baked nut and chocolate. Sort of a nutty "tin roof sundae" smell too. What's there is good - but a weak volume in the bouquet. Oops, I snorted some. Definitely nutty, peanut hull...wow haha.

It tastes : Whoa!!! Double whoa!! Just awesome. Very malty. Roasted nutty flavors - peanut, pecan, walnut... maple sap, with melted chocolate. The swallow is the best part (that's what she said), with a wrapped chocolate ferro rocher-type finish, a slight sting of hop, and dark malts. Breathing the finish is like roasted cocoa, a handful of peanuts, and mocha coffee.

Feel : creamy and medium bodied, buzzing carbonation. Ends wet and slightly grainy.

Overall : every time I take a sip of this, my eyes gently pop out of my head, I blink slowly twice, and I smile. It's that good. You owe it to yourself to try this Bock. It's amazing.

The wonderful malty flavors of a traditional bock come through in this beer. The nose gives those slight chocolate undertones which come though when you have a couple sips. I love it with a dark chocolate candy bar to inhance the chocolate flavors.

Sampled last night on 1/2/14. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured into a brandy snifter.

Pours a very dark brown with a smaller tan head. Good amount of lacing was seen with each sip. Perfect carbonation. The aroma is of coffee, toffee with a hint of chocolate and roasted malts. The taste is even better! All the above flavors come through and blend together nicely. Goes down smooth and easy with no bitter or harsh aftertaste. Very pleasant for sure!
