Uff-Da poured into the glass deep mahogany in color with good clarity. The head was fizzy cola-like and cola in color. The head fell to a thin collar and a wispy cover.
The smell was all about the malts. There were sweet malts, traces of chocolate, a light nuttiness, a hint of molasses and a suggestion of grassy hops.
The taste was sweet rich maltiness, light chocolate notes with strong hints of espresso, molasses and a light balancing hop bitterness.
The mouthfeel was creamy playing off of a medium body and a moderately active carbonation.
As is common to the style the taste leaned toward the sweet side. Hops were there in the background. This was nicely done and a pleasant change of pace. I seem to have forgotten how much I enjoy the Bock styles. New Glarus, thank you for this wonderful reminder.

A - Heavy carbonation streams through this beautifully clear copper-colored brew, feeding it's lasting ivory head that shrouds the glass in heavy lace. Uff-da is picture perfect!
S - Hearty maltiness offers rich aromatics of baked bread and nuttiness followed by dry toast and a slathering of sweet caramel
T - Chewy caramel cubes offer sweetness through this densely malty brew that leaves heavenly baked bread and toasted wheat and nut bread lingering on the tongue despite it's otherwise clean lagered characteristic.
M - Even though the beer's heavy carbonation is seen streaming through the glass, Uff-da is ultra-smooth; almost creamy in texture, which goes perfectly with it's fuller body and clean finish that leaves light malt traces on the tongue.
O - New Glarus' Dan Carey is a brewing genius, especially when it comes to German style beer, which is no surprise considering his time spent across the pond. Uff-da is a pretty simple bock overall but it's lack of defect and flourishing bready and nutty malt profile make it damn delicious. This beer is one of the best examples of the style you can lay lips on.
