3.78/5  rDev -2.3%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.75

I had this one on the recommendation of the bartender at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth & I quote, “it’s like Shiner Bock but tastes good…”.

The beer is a reddish brown with some sticky beige lacing.

It has a nose of caramel and grains. Nice and fresh.

The taste is slightly sweet and grainy. A bit of slowpoke sucker, apple and whole grain bread.

The mouth has a bit of heft and I enjoyed the low carbonation levels.

Nice bock, the sweetness would keep it to a once a night beer for me

Not like most bocks I've had but you can definitely taste the chocolate taste.

3.66/5  rDev -5.4%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3.5

Appearance: Dark brown glass has a murky core and holds a tan cover of foam that leaves dots of lacing.

Smell: Malt, deep almost malt extract intensity. Sweet and earthy with a autumn leaves aspect.

Taste: Candy sugar, almost cotton candy with that level of lightness and an odd cola gummy bear twang. Not much of the earthy notes in the nose, light and sweet.

Feel: Thin body, slick texture, slightly foamy carbonation, dry finish.

Overall: A nice Bock, probably note what most Texans expect from a Bock given their Shiner experiences, but this seems close to what the rest of the world thinks of as a Bock. There is a bit of candy note that goes off and pulls down the total scores for me, but enjoyable and worth a try.

Revolver Bock by Revolver Brewing has a strong mahogany color and a dense head. The smells nutty and somewhat like chocolate, which while pleasant isn't similar to the style. The taste is a rich toasted toffee like taste that feels very strongly towards he malt with little to no taste coming from hops. Every gulp and sip is rich and full bodied with nice amounts of carbonation. Overall Revolver Bock is a pleasant American Ale with decent drinkability even if it isn't very inline with what a bock is meant to be.

3.81/5  rDev -1.6%

So, this is an "ale" Bock according to the label.

A: 3.75 - Dark mahogany color with a small yet dense head. Not much lacing, though.
S: 3.50 - Notes of cocoa and caramel--not very bock-like.
T: 4.0 - Tastes good despite little similarity to the style--emphasis is squarely on the malt, with a lot of caramel. It's also a tad toasty (breadcrust-like), with just a light hint of roast.
M: 4.0 - Soft but substantial body--full.
O: 3.75 - Decent American amber.

Weightings (percentages): 20, 20, 40, 5, 15. Avg: 3.81.

Enjoyed on the patio at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth

Man alive this is some transcendentaly amazing good beer. A revelation in a glass that makes me want to shout hallelujah!

Yes. It. Is. That. Good.

Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a smallish off-white head. Very striking contrast in colors.

Aroma is seductively rich with lots of maple.

Flavor is a mouthfeel. Incredibly rich and malty. A little bit of hops. Lots of maple.

Thick and rich mouthfeel. It reminds me of a thicker version of salvator.

This really is a dopplebock. Super rich. I can even pick up some bourbonish notes.

Extremely good. Highly recommended.

On tap at the Common Table. The beer pours a reddish-brown color with a tan head. The aroma has a good bit of cocoa in it, as well as some light spicing. The flavor is similar. I get some chocolate and dry cocoa, as well as some spice and a hint of earth. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.
