12 oz bottle poured to a pint glass.
A- Dark, chocolatey color with a nice foamy head. Reminiscent of dark coffee with a mocha milk froth resting nicely on top.
S- Wet grains mixed with damp cocoa. Rich malty backbone that has a hint of brightness with tones of light vanilla and grass. Definitely sweet to the nose, sugary, with dark fruit aromas like cherries, figs, and black currants. Some caramel in there as well.
T- Candy-like sugary sweetness that consumes the tongue. Notes of dark fruit, plum, and a slight tartness that lingers a bit. Initial flavors remind me of homeade chocolate cherry bread. Most notably, this beer is like drinking a cup of caramel and toffee. Really rich toffee and caramel flavors dominant the taste with no detectable hop bitterness. Not the Uff-da I remember from way back… but still damn tasty. Hints of roasted coffee on the palette as it warms.
MF- Creamy texture and rich flavor. A bit thin, with light carbonation, but very drinkable. Slightly chewy.
O- Very rich caramel and dark fruit flavors. A great staple bock, but I again feel this beer just isn't the same as the old. Maybe it's just me. Still a solid beer that will always have a special place in my heart.

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.
