750ml bottle served in a Belgian snifter. Consumed slowly with temperature rising from about 39F (too cold) to 55F. This brewery is new to the U.S. (GA only, so far).

Pours a dark red-brown color with a thin head; a little spotty lacing is left on the glass. Looks like a porter.

Aroma: A bit malty for a bockbeer, with suggestion of a Scottish ale. Some caramel, green apples, light spices, faint smokiness and mild alcohol esters.

Taste: More malty than the smell suggests. Some caramel and darker roasted grains, with just hints of coffee and dark chocolate. Moderately complex owing to the grain bill.

Mouthfeel: medium+ body and crisp carbonation. Dry finish.

Overall: not a typical German Bockbier, but quite tasty and easily recommended.

A - Pours deep brown, only slightly reddish with a light tan head

S - Roasted grains and brown sugar

T - Toasted, smokey malts, hints of rye and brown sugar. Finishes dry and hoppy

M - Thick, full-bodied, slightly carbonated. More like a porter than most boks

O - Overall a very heavy, dark bok, that's more along the lines of a porter than a typical bok bier, but still very enjoyable, especially on a cold Fall day.

330 ml, long neck brown bottle, ABV 6,5%, at home, poured into a snifter.
Pours a very dark brown coloured beer, with a good two finger beige, creamy head, with average retention.
Aroma of roasted malts, coffee and on the background slight caramel and alcohol.
Taste is sweet at first, giving its place to a light pleasant bitterness. Roasted malts and dark chocolate.
Medium to full body, light carbonation.
A very tasty bock.

22 Oct 2012 in Valkenburg, Holland: Cafe De Grendelpoort is having a Bockfest and this was one of the brews on-tap.

Very dark, most likely the darkest Bok I saw during my stay in Holland. The head was also the whitest I saw on a Bok this time around.

The aroma and taste were of roasted but not burnt malts with red berry notes in both the smell and mouth flavours. Coffee, prunes and plums can be added to the taste thoughts as this is a complex and interesting beer.

Medium bodied and easy to drink: pity there were so mant to try, or I could have stayed on this for another one or three!

Poured a 1" head which dissipated quickly. Clear burnt umber brown in color. Smell and taste both are mildly chocolate malt, and it's followed up by a pleasant long acidic zing. Really a pretty nice Bock. What was most notable of all was the massive amount of sediment in the bottom of the bottle (must have been at least 1/4" solid thick sediment and it came out during the pour as big globs). It didn't bother me, I've just never seen so much in a bottle.
