3.94/5 rDev +2.1%
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.

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.
