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.

Serving type: on-tap

On tap at the brewpub. Served in a Town Hall chalice glass.

Appearance: Color is a deep dark brownish amber orange with a moderate amount of bubbles. Solid three fingers of off white head with good retention. Leaves a good amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A whiskey barrel forward aroma with solid hints of sweet caramel and fruit undertones. Big hints of bourbon whiskey upfront with some vanilla, oak, and wood. Toasted bready malts with hints of sweet caramel, toffee, biscuit, yeast, and wheat grains. Some candied burnt sugars along with a slight hint of cloves and pepper. Hints of banana and apple as well as some dark fruit hints of fig, prune, plum, raisin, and dark cherry. Hop scent is very light. Very good aroma.

Taste: Follows the nose pretty well, big taste of the bourbon barrel with lots of caramel malt and fruits. Big bourbon barrel taste throughout with notes of oak chip, vanilla, and wood. Sweet toasted malts with notes of caramel, toffee, yeast, biscuit, and wheat grains. Some brown sugar and candied sugar. Notes of banana and apple fruits along with some dark prune, fig, plum, cherry, and raisin. Light presence of earthy hops in the back end. The bourbon notes blend nicely with the malts. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy and somewhat chewy and syrupy. A little booze heat is felt.

Overall: A very good bourbon barrel aged version of a Weizenbock. Nice creamy notes of bourbon, caramel malt, and fruit.
