T - cereal grains, bitter, some warming alcohol
M - medium bodied, well carbonated, warm
This is a rather simple though very drinkable beer. There isn't much to report in either flavor or aroma, but there aren't any off flavors either. This is a beer that you can sit back and enjoy a few of without worrying about fatigue. I'm glad I tried this one once, but I probably won't pick it up again.

This Bock is on the lighter side of the style, a dark orange leaning brownish-red in the darkest depths. The tan-tinted head isn't small but it doesn't last very long. It is able to throw down some thin patching in decent quantity, though.
The nose is a little odd, with a dark malts foundation but little strength and giving little but earth, wood and some sort of metallic mineral note.
It's earthy with a notes of woods, kind of stemmy in the bitterness, with a bit of a nutty character underneath. A bit of breadiness shows up in the malt profile, too, and the hops add a very gentle black pepper bite.
Bock shouldn't be huge, but this seems a little thin in body. Still, the malts lay down pretty good support, and there's a good balance between crisp and smooth, dry and sweet.
