I had this on tap at Barcade in Philadelphia, served chilled in a pint.

The color is medium amber with light haze and thick white cream with good retention and fine bead. The smell is malty with a nutty mildly sweet aroma and mild alcohol presence with a fruity ester. The texture is balanced with malt and moderate carbonation with mild spice and subtle dry toasted and clean dry medium bodied finish has a spiced hop element.

The flavor is great as the bock has the appropriate toasted maltiness you expect with woody hops and a very mild caramel accent with hint of nuttiness and gentle yeast flavor adding to the complexity with a traditional lager finish. Overall a wonderful beer, a very well crafted bock that is enjoyable to drink.

Took this growler home after a fun visit to Victory. Always a good experience.

The brew is a crystal clear light copper with a nice lasting head that dots the glass with lacing on the way down.

The nose isn't necessarily lackluster as much as it is nonexistent. Very light bready, malty aroma is about it.

The flavor is excellent. Malty, bready, nutty with accents of caramel. Almost no hop character to speak of, which is ok because it's a bock! Roasted malts make a restrained appearance. Just enough to give you hints of light roast coffee. Finally, a hint of lightly fruity lager yeast to top it off. Very balanced feeling for such a malt forward beer.

The mouthfeel is fantastic. Rich and perfectly smooth. Fills the mouth with only a hint of prickly carbonation.

Overall I thoroughly enjoyed this beer. Perfect for cold nights!

I scored a pint of this on my last visit to Victory, on 08JUN14. Served in a stange glass.

Color was an attractive, rich, clear mahogany/chestnut. Had some carbo drifting about, and the head was creamy and off-white but thin. There was lots of lacing, though, as it really coated the glass. Aroma was restrained, with some caramel and toastyness being noted. Fairly smooth it was, with a decent, medium body.

I tasted lots of good caramel here, with light sweetness and a touch of nuttiness. The finish was dry, with some flowery hopping present to balance the malts. A solid brew; nicely done. Prosit!!

Pours a light copper color with a soapy white head with plenty of lace. Aroma of bready malts and faint toffee. Little hop bitterness or alcohol flavor, just a very clean German malt character. Medium bodied and well carbonated, full flavored and rich. Overall, a nice clean American made German bock perfect for enjoying the fall season.
