look: 5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 4.5
A: Deep crimson with a quickly fading off but persistent white head. Gorgeous!
S: Nutty with hops.
T: Good. Quite hoppy but low on overall flavor. Not quite as bold as it should I feel it should be. Hops flavor going down with a nice bitterness in the after taste.
M: Leaves the mouth a bit dry, but quite soft.
D: Excellent! Light enough to go down easy even after a few.
Overall: The appearance is amazing! The deep crimson color is really beautiful. Smell is good, taste is pleasant, and it goes down easy. I've lived in Wisconsin my whole life but this is my first go at 1888 Bock. I was extremely surprised with it and would recommend it to any one. Truly a fantastic beer, despite what the other reviewers have said!
