Pours a deep, dark brown....nice tan head on top that rims the glass nicely..quite impressive really...the nose is subtle malt sweetness(caramel) along with some burnt malts...the taste is basically sweet malt..borders on a little oversweet...a bit of a dry hop bite on the finish helps to balance things out a little but still a bit unsettling in the mouth....

All in all this is not a bad beer by any means....I got a 12er for $5 bucks and that is a steal. I enjoyed a few the other day while smoking a Don Carlos Robusto on the deck...I hate drinking top notch beer with good cigars, but I do enjoy a cheaper, solid dark beer to pair with my quality smokes and this fit the bill nicely....

Maybe a tich sweeter than the Berghoff Bock but for all I know it's the same beer with different labels.

Deep, clear, garnet. Slight beige head. In less than a minute, it becomes a slight beige collar that sticks around. Lacing is adequate. Aroma is good. Sweet, malty, fruitcakey and bready. This beer almost feels a little too carbonated in the mouth. Body is about medium. Taste is decent. A little yeasty. A little bready. A little sugary caramel goodness. Just a titch of molasses. All in all, a pretty average bock.

This brew poured a medium head of fine to large light brown bubbles that left a fair lacing. It had an opaque black brown body that was more like a stout than a bock. Its medium strength malt and roasted caramel arroma was very nice indeed. Its palate was very smooth and it gad a plesant malt fore and after taste.

This Bock poured a medium head with medium sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The lacing was good and the hue was brown. It had a moderately malty aroma to it and a fairly smooth flavor as well. The palate was light in body and the texture seemed to be a bit on the watery side.

Obtainable in a large case of returnables...

Clear reddish brown color with a refuge head of medium-sized bubbles. Incomplete and thin ring laces. Reserved aroma, barest sense of a burned diacetyl, almost like movie popcorn. Rather thin impression, tea-like, a bit of cinnamon and brown sugar on the tongue with a drawn-out and similar aftertaste. A little papery oxidation. Not particularly good, the rest of the case goes to the next party I go to. I'm not sure how this differs from the Berghoff Bock the company puts out at greater cost.

At $12 a case, how can you complain? This is actually a good beer. Dark red-brown with a madium body. Poor head retention, but who cares at $0.50 a brew! Nice malty flavor, a hint of hops, and you can drink it all night. I got hooked at college (was even cheaper then), and now I grab a few cases everytime I'm in Milwaukee. Beats the heck out of any other beer in its price range.
