Notes/Commercial Description:
From the brewery: Battlefield Bock is a smooth and creamy Bavarian Style Bock Lager. It is brewed with our proprietary blend of Bavarian Dark Roasted Malts giving it a distinct taste with hints of coffee and chocolate. We add Noble Czech Saaz Hops to balance the flavor of this rich full bodied lager. Battlefield Bock is slow cold aged for a minimum of 8 weeks.

look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance: Pours dark chocolate brown with little or no head. What head there is leaves a nice lace on the glass.

Smell: Sweet, sweet, sweet. Chocolate tones everywhere, with hints of raisins.

Taste: Overly sweet up front, heavy chocolate tones, with hints of various fruits and raisins all over the palate. Finish with a hint of hop spice. Clean non lingering finish.

Mouthfeel: Very light beer, light carbonation, quite refreshing.

Overall: Suprising beer but not necessarily true to style. Lighter feel and much sweeter than other bocks I've had in the past. Not by any means a bad beer and I will have it again. Just not what I expected from a bock.

Serving type: on-tap

My Favorite Red Oak Beer. This reminds me of Home in Greensboro, NC. The slightly higher gravity followed up with the chocolate and coffee notes make it just the perfect beer.

***Cough*** - I wish they would bottle and distribute this beer!

Dreaming - If they weren't constrained to the German Purity Laws. I wonder what a smoked version of this or a barrel aged version of this would yield.
