Pours a very dark amber color with about one finger of fluffy off-white head that disappears fairly quickly.

The scent is of caramel notes and some toasted malts.

The taste is of sweet caramel, toasted malt, some light hop presence.

Light body, smooth and crisp, moderate carbonation.

I thought this was a nice presentation of the style. It was flavorful, well balanced and very drinkable.

Bottle poured into a pint glass.

The appearance of this is dark, caramel brown with no head whatsoever and what appears like tons of carbonation. The aroma is slightly funky, slightly sweet, slightly caramel, and slightly nothing. The flavor is weak and not very bock like. The flavor is, well, weak for a bock. It isn't a bad flavor, it just isn't much of a bock. It mimics the smell and appearance. The MF is higher carbed than I would like, and i think of the style, and thin and watery. Overall, this is a beer. A bock, I am sure that it is, but not a great one.
