This beer is a dark beer. But it is not too dark it go`s down smooth. It has a some what heavy taste but not too heavy. If you like dark beer this is a good beer to buy. The smell is really good as well. The smell is not too strong or too weak. This beer is a good beer for just sitting back and relaxing around the house. It is also a good beer for out at a bar with friends, or at dinner. I would recomend it to anyone who likes dark beer, or to someone who likes to try new beers. It is one of my favorite beers and I know that I will have this beer again with no problem. So I would recommend that anyone who likes dark beer shpuld go out and have a Shiner Bock. I do not believe that you could go wrong with this beer.

Sampled earlier this evening and had this once before a couple of years ago. Bottle chilled down to 36 degrees F in my beer cooler and poured in to a tulip glass.

Pours a dark amber in color with about a 1/2-finger off white head that leaves some spotty lacing as well. The aroma is a faint sweetness with malt. Carbonation is a bit under average. Taste is of a light sweet caramel malts unlike many other bocks. Goes down pretty easy with no harsh or bitter aftertaste. Actually wasn't that bad and would have one again.
