Aroma is toasted caramel malt, toffee and earthy hops. Pours transparent red-brown with a small head and decent lacing. Flavor matches aroma. Palate is sticky and smooth. A good example of the style and an overall good brew. Nice and full bodied, :).

Poured from a 12oz bottle into a DT tulip. Extra special thanks to HeatherAnn for the assist and the hook-up!

A: Pours an ever so cloudy orangey/amber color with one-finger of creamy, just off-white head. Minimal lacing and relatively still carbonation.

S: Nice aromas of caramel and floral hops. Throw in a bit of toasty malt, roasted nuts, vanilla, toffee, and raisins.

T: Tastes like it smells. Caramel, toffee, toasted malt, vanilla, nuts, and raisins that taste a little booze soaked.

M: Creamy and full with a bit of spicyness and/or hop bitterness. Finish is sticky and hangs around for quite a long time.

D: Wasn't sure what to expect when Heather gave me these, but we were both pleasantly surprised.

A - Hazy copper with a thin off white head that disappears quickly.

S - Toasted malt, caramel and slightly earthy hops.

T - Sweet malt, slightly toasted caramel, candied toffee and earthy hops.

M - Slighty thin with a touch of sticky sweetness.

D - I haven't had many regular bocks but this one seems solid compared to the ones I have tried.

This beer pours a lovely clear reddish-orange color with a medium thin bone white head that sticks around. Stringy lacing. Toasted malt, caramel and hops in the nose. Medium-bodied and clean with sweet caramel malt, hops and light sweet fruit flavors. The finish is sweet up front and leaves a nice hoppy aftertaste. Overall this was a pleasant surprise, especially considering I am pretty unfamiliar with the style.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

A - Pours coppery, with a small, off-white head that lasts a bit and leaves behind a cap with little lacing. Hazy, with yeast in suspension.

S - Predominately sweet, malty, and fruity. A subtle hint of hops for balance. A note of raw alcohol as well.

T - Very sweet up front with plenty of toasted malt. Finish is fruity with a kiss (peck on the cheek, even) of bittering hops. There is an essence of alcohol on the swallow, with a candy sweetness.

M - A bit above medium-bodied. Carbonation is pretty aggressive and it prickles the tongue. This is my first bock, but that seems wrong for such a rich brew.

D - I could have one or two for variety, but I don't know as that I'd session it.

A solid beer I'd be willing to come back to, but the brewer needs to work on the bottled carbonation level.

Kind of opaque and cloudy and orangish gold. Little head. Not much of a smell. A little bit of sweetness and malt. Taste is a little bit better than the smell. It's sort of sweet and with a moderately rich malt flavor. But overall, kind of plain for a bock. Good consistency and pretty easy to drink but I'm somewhat disappointed. Not much there. I tasted it again just now... it's got a nice sweet flavor with no bitterness but nothing too special.
