A hazy dark beige body with an off white head. Scattered spots of lace.

The bourbon is front and center in the nose with vanilla and oak. Some light bready notes is about all that's left of the base.

The bock shows up more in the flavor with a light tart apple, banana, and bread pudding. Then back to the bourbon, which is long in the finish.

I was quite impressed by the way this lower abv, lighter bodied beer held up
to the barrel aging. It's a medium body, but relatively lighter than most bba. Smooth.

The bourbon really dominates and I would have liked to have experienced more of the bock, but still a very good drink.

Buffalo bock pours a redish like color, with a nice large white head. There are strong alchool, and wood like aromas. The taste is much the same, rather boozy, strong wood like flavors, and a profound sourness. Full flavors, but the more I drank, the less I wanted this. Overall I found this a tough beer to finish.
