12 oz. bottle, with unreadable bottling code printed on the back label (BOU)? Another new beer to me from Anchor Brewing Co., acquired as part of a mixed six pack at the local Binny's. Expectations aren't great based on the style, and this beer's current poor ratings.

Poured into a clear balloon snifter.

A - Pours a dark chocolatey woodsy brown colored body with about three fingers of frothy khaki head. Leaves lots of good scattered lacing behind. Looks very nice.

S - The smell isn't anything special but it's suitable for the style. Some nuttiness / barley malt roast, and some dark fruit presence like raisins, figs, dates.

T - Taste follows the nose - lightly woodsy, chocolate malt, caramel malt, dark fruits - figs, dates, raisins, mild cola, mild creaminess, and some indistinct spicing. Fairly unexciting, but drinkable.

M - Feel is smooth, crisp, and creamy. Medium-light bodied with good carbonation.

Overall, a decent bock offering from Anchor. Clearly, it wouldn't be my first choice, but I'm not entirely sure that it deserves such a low rating. Bocks aren't a style I am too familiar with, but this one is approachable and sessionable.
