4.21/5  rDev +10.2%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.25

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a tall New Glarus Signature Pilsner Glass.

Appearance: Pours a deep mahogany orange with a lot of rising bubbles. Huge four finger off white head that slowly settles into a thinner creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing around the glass.

Smell: A deep, toasty, and earthy malt forward aroma with good hints of toasty bread and chocolate. Upfront scent of toasted malts with hints of biscuit, toasted bread, caramel, toffee, chocolate, coffee, nuts, grains, and yeast. Sweet hints of brown sugar. Decent backing hints of earthy hops with some hints of grass. Also some subtle hints of dark fruit including cherry and dates. A pretty solid bock aroma.

Taste: Like it smells, a nicely toasty and earthy malt driven taste with good notes of toast, chocolate, and subtle fruit. Very bready upfront taste of toasted malts with notes of biscuit, toasted bread, chocolate, coffee, caramel, toffee, grains, nuts, cracker, and yeast. Some light sweet notes of brown sugar. Solid earthy backing presence of hops with some notes of grass. Undertones of dark fruit with some notes of dark cherry and dates. A really solid bock taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy and slightly slick and chewy. Finishes dry.

Overall: A very solid take on a Bock. Good dark toasty malt notes with a decent hop backing.

12 oz bottle poured into a New Glarus pilsner glass.
No date or info.

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.
