Availability: Winter

Notes/Commercial Description:
Each year the promise of spring was confirmed as the first keg of Schell's Bock rolled onto waiting delivery wagons. And since 1860, Schell's Bock has continued in the true German tradition. Completely reformulated for 2009, Schell's Bock has replaced Caramel Bock as our late winter seasonal. Brewed with a harmonious blend of 10 different types of malt and noble hops, Schell's Bock is fermented slowly, and then lagered for an extended period of time to ensure a smooth finish. Perfect for passing even the coldest winter day.

This dark amber colored beer sports a robust malt character.

Medium sized foamy light tan head settles to a nice lacing above a clear caramelized reddish brown colored beer.

Light caramel grain malts aroma that brings with it some sweetness.

A light sweetness on a roasted caramel malts taste.

Just a bit of dryness associated with a light caramel aftertaste on this lighter bodied Bock.

A decent tasting Bock, maybe just a tad on the wettish lighter feel, but definitely worth drinking.

im not a malty beer guy at all, but this is a great example of one that isn't overly sweet or cloying. roasted toasty bread, nutella, pumpernickle, oak. savory yet extremely drinkable.

another solid schells beer
