3.58/5 rDev +2%
12 ounce bottle into lager glass, no bottle dating. Pours slightly hazy/cloudy reddish copper color with a small dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass, with a light amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toast, brown sugar, brown bread, light roast, green apple, raisin, plum, herbal, and yeast earthiness. Ok aromas with solid complexity and decent balance of dark/bready malt and fruity yeast ester notes; with solid strength. A bit too estery with green apple on the nose. Taste of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, raisin, fig, plum, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness. Light earthy bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of caramel, toast, toffee, brown sugar, brown bread, light chocolate, raisin, fig, plum, herbal, light pepper, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a good bit. Nice complexity and robustness of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast ester, and earthy hop flavors; with a good malt/bitterness balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a smooth and fairly creamy/bready mouthfeel that is nice. Alcohol is very well hidden with minimal warming present after the finish. Overall this a nice Bock style. Good balance, complexity, and robustness of dark/bready malt, fruity yeast ester, and earthy hop flavors; and very smooth to drink for the ABV. If the nose wasn’t overly estery this definitely would have scored a bit higher. A nicely enjoyable offering.

12oz bottle (no date) served in a shaker pint glass.
Appearance: Hazy orange-amber with lots of bubbles coming up through the beer. Thin off-white head. Some small strands of lacing that would slide back down the glass to the original head.
Smell: Bit of caramel upon first poured, but then after awhile the smell goes away completely - almost odorless. With a very deep inhale I can pick up a tiny bit of noble hops and some of the caramelized malt again.
Taste: Up front a mix of toasted malt, caramel, and something metallic. Moves quickly to a burnt sugar, herbal/spicy hop finish with some lingering mild sweetness.
Mouthfeel: Highly carbonated - fizzy. Some stickiness to the teeth.
Overall / Drinkability: Hmm....just okay I think. Maybe it would be better with food. By itself nothing special and I've had better bocks. Tasty enough, but everything together leaves something to be desired.

Pours a clear golden brown with a billowing khaki head that leaves modest lacing as it slowly dissipates.
Floral hops, nutty, toasted malt, and light melanoidins form the aroma.
There's a metallic character in the flavor, which also has a malty, toasted backbone. Something's not quite right. Almost fruity.
Body is moderate, carbonation is light, and alcohol warmth is substantial.
The metallic character really kills this. Good toasted malt backbone, though.

A - I would have to call this beer a dark amber color. I got very little head with this beer. It looks off-white.
S - I smell some caramel, toffee, and toast. I can also pick out some floral hops.
T - There is a definitive malt presence. I get a lot of caramel malt initially, but the hops come in to balance it out a little on the finish.
M - Medium with medium carbonation.
O - It has been a while since I have had a bock. This is a decent beer. It has pretty good flavor.
