I went to the beer shop to pick up a 6-pack of a beer I could drink at the party... that just came out to the store so why not... This is a special edition of their bock. BOttled on november 19, 2009. Tasted at the party on the december 4th, 2009. Tasted seriously december 13th, 2009.
Notes from december 13th, 2009: Color is amber almost red. It is very dark amber color. A nice head which is a change from this brewery. The aroma is malts (caramel), not much hops. The taste is caramel malts with a light note of bitterness at the end. Medium body beer and very refreshing. I nice beer to have during fall. Typical of this brewery, not out of this world beer, more like a classic beer. Nothing shocking which could be good sometimes.
Tastier and smellier than their all-year round bock. Not bad, not extraordinary... however much better than their bock...

3.18/5 rDev -13.4%
A - Deep red with tinges of brown. Bright. One finger light brown head fades to a nice cap. Medium carbonation.
S - Soapy, metallic, and candied maltiness in the form of toffee or caramel.
T - More of that soapiness with more of that caramel maltiness with a dry and slightly bitter finish. I expect alot more warming maltiness from a bock.
M - Medium amount of carbonation with a medium body. Soft in the mouth. A touch thin.
D - Not a bad attempt at a bock but definately no better than average. Requires more solid maltiness and a little more body.

Served from a 341 Ml bottle
A: Small one finger head that left some nice looking but rather thin lacing. Head retained itself for a moderate length. The color was a transparent amber. Looked quiet appetizing.
S: Caramel. Mostly highlighting sweet tasting malts and small tinges of a yeast character coming through.
T: Once again malts are the most present flavor here. Sweet caramel flavors are present and there is almost a light smoked flavor in the after taste. Very little hop flavor and not very bitter. The higher than average alcohol content is masked pretty efficiently
M: Slightly above par mouth feel. Fairly low carbonation and could perhaps be just a tad higher. A good clean finish leaving the drinker craving more.
O: This was a good beer and personally I thought it was far better than the companies other Bock offerings. I would pick this beer up again if i could but unfortunately its been continued. I wonder why?
