look: 4 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a beer glass.

Appearance: Burnt-sienna to light-mahogany in color, yet nearly opaque. Partially-tan head which leaves minimal lacing.

Smell: Toasted malts, with a prune/plum sweetness which is nearly overpowering. Very heavy with the malt here.

Taste/Mouthfeel: Lightly oily, very thick with minimal carbonation. Plum/banana flavor dances on the palate while a bready feeling lays a strong foundation. Not too cloying, which has been the downfall of many a bock in my book.

Drinkabilty: I can drink this...hahaha...personally, I'm not a fan of bocks, but this one is easily tolerated. I would definitely recommend it to those who enjoy a good bock.

Totally disagree with the other reviewer.

A: Brown and red color with nice lacing; not too carbonated.

S: Smoky smell with some malt aroma.

T: Caramel malt taste, with smoky flavor and some soft fruit flavor. Everything melded well, not too fruity, very nice balanced and drinkable brew.

M/D: Super drinkable, honestly loved this brew.

Pours a tawny brown with absolutly no head to speak of,some slight caramel aromas but very light and uninspiring.Flavors are off a little for the style there is some caramel upfront but an annoying sourness that takes over that lasts into the finish.A non noteworthy bock not much to it and way out of character for the style
