4.11/5 rDev +12.3%
Presentation: Very classy looking label with an awesome looking logo and a decent color scheme with eye-catching look. Label gives web info, ABV info, IBU info, a small description of the beer, a nice back story on beer, a bit of brewery info, and states “Colorado Mountain Town Crafted Beer” and Tommy Knocker has been creating quality lagers and ales in the Rocky Mountain since 1994.”
Appearance: An aggressive pour from its 12oz brown bottle into a 14oz Pokal glass led to a 2 ½ finger tan head of medium density atop a clear deep dark amber/mahogany beer. Head retention was 4min 12sec before fading to a thick ring and coating with excellent lacing.
Smell/Aroma: Smells of dark fruit, toasted malts, and a toffee aroma with a nice alcohol bite.
Flavor/Taste: Taste is of molasses and dark fruits on the front end before a toasted toffee malt midpoint with hints of hops and alcohol. Finishes roasty with a nice toffee flavor. Roasty aftertaste.
MouthFeel/Drinkability: Thick, creamy, and full bodied with a smooth slick mouthfeel. Drinkability is medium because of the full bodied nature and higher ABV.
Overall/Comments: I really enjoyed this beer and loved how it stayed so true to the style. Excellent mouthfeel and flavor profile. This would be a perfect lat fall beer. Classifed as a Doppelbock @ 8.2% ABV. Consumed 9/22/2013.

Tommyknocker Brewery Butt Head Bock Lager (2013) - 8.2% ABV. Thick head, nice lacing. Beautiful caramel cream color. Strong fruity aroma. Underlying hop aroma as well. Some sugar scents too. Thick caramel and toffee nose. Big malty flavor. Bread and sweet sugar mid palate. Almost like some sort of strange fruity Danish. Nice roasted barley as well in the mid-palate. Finishes with a little hop by. Some fruit. Little bit of lemon grass. Just a hint of pine. Nice warming at that point from the alcohol. Full mouth feel. Maple syrup like. Crisp aftertaste. Good lager flavors. Those lager flavors dissipate to a nice roasted barley flavor. The malt notes return at this point and then fade into nothing. Very well-balanced. Very complex taste note. Full flavored. Like a roller coaster. Lots of ups and downs in the taste sensation. All of which are enjoyable and deservingly are there at the right points.
Nothing overpowers any other taste or scent note. Again very well balanced. Low alcohol taste is deceiving. All in an excellent example of the Bock style of Lager beers. A very good homage to this traditionally German Winter brew. Glad I had the air conditioning on. Lent itself to a nice crisp day albeit artificial in creation. 4.5 out of 5. Excellent. highly recommended.
