Pours dark brown with a thin, lasting head. Lacing sticks.

The smell is of lightly toasted dark bread, medium-dark fruits and a hint of chocolate.

The taste is of dark bread, sweet dark malt balanced by earthy, spicy, slightly fruity hops in the clean, crisp, smooth finish.

A well-made, enjoyable, mildly warming yet easy-to-drink bock!

I had this right after visiting the Civil War Museum in Kenosha. So the taste of civil rights was lingering ever so slightly on my palate. They served this to us first thing upon starting the tour. It was good, but like the tour, it was short lived. If you like winter lagers, you might dig it.
