Dug this one out to enjoy this cool evening.
Poured a deep brown, reddish hues evident when examined. Nice two finger tan coloured head formed on the pour. Nicely carbonated, but scantly laced.
Caramel, dark fruits, and a hint of bitter chocolate and earthy spice rose from the glass to greet my nose.
Very similar to the aroma profile. Caramel and dark fruity flavours of raisin and dates predominate, and are complemented by chocolately undertones and a hint of earthy hop spice.
This is an almost rich medium bodied beer. The rich maltiness is nicely balanced by the alcohol which is slightly warming. Some earthy hops present, just enough to ground the malty richness without distracting from it.
This is a very drinkable and tasty brew. Not the richest or most decadent bock I've had, or the most refined. But this is a tasty and well balanced treat. This would make a great session brew in the upcoming cooler weather, or also be good crossover fare for someone interested in exploring what can be done with dark malts. Ill be enjoying this beer again sometime.

12 oz bottle poured into a New Glarus pilsner glass.

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.
