3.73/5  rDev -1.6%
look: 4 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.75 | overall: 3.75

12oz can poured into SN hop glass.

A: Pours a burnt amber with a huge, dense, light tan head that slowly faded into a thick and oily looking film. Soapy patches of lace were left down the glass.
S: Rye hits first and is prominent and spicy. I get scents of toasted malt, burnt sugar, caramel and faint citrus.
T: Much fruitier than the nose the suggested. I get the spicy flavors of rye up front, followed by sweet fruity hops, bread crust malt, and grainy wheat. The finish is sweet with fruit nectar, and the aftertaste is bitter with slight notes of citrus, and peppery with the flavorful rye.
M: Medium body, slick, heavy and greasy mouthfeel. The carbonation is fluffy but tingly.
O: The rye and dry hopping provide an interesting take on the style. I enjoyed this one a lot.

This rye bock was a really nice beer. The appearance was very nice with a hazy dark yellow hue and a nice fizzy head. The smell had great amounts of rye and malt to make a fresh bread smell with some citrus hidden underneath. The taste was fantastic with those bread flavors being front and center to make a full flavored beer that still had subtlety to the bear. Sweetness in the beginning and finishing with mellow Earthy tones through out. Would highly recommend.

Poured into a New Belgium goblet. Bottom of can says PKGD 06/03/14.

A- Pours a light brown color with a 1/2 light tan head that retains well before becoming a thick ring around the edge of the glass and a mostly full sheet of surface foam. Semi-resilient lacing leaves a broken ring behind.

S- Unique aroma of toasty, slightly spicy rye malt and grassy hops. It all comes together to make this fruity, somewhat sweet aroma that reminds me of something I can't put my finger on. Fume of booze.

T- More toasty malt, mildly bitter hops and a clean lager finish. Alcohol is noticeable but doesn't get in the way. Biscuity with a hint of citrus from the hop flavor and a touch of sweetness.

M- Somewhat sharp with medium carbonation and a body leaning toward the fuller side.

O- Out of the two bocks in the pack, this is clearly the better. Nothing super impressive but it's flavorful and goes down easy.
