look: 4.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 5

Has this on each of my two weekend visits. Deep copper with a light tan head. Nice even carbonation. Very clear.

Aroma is nutty and malty. Very clean with no fruitiness.

Big malty brew that is light on hops, Slight roasty malt nuttiness present that give the beer some depth. Not too heavy, but does present a little bit of alcohol in the flavor.

Medium bodied brew that is very smooth and well conditioned like a proper bock should be.

Very drinkable. And goes well with pulled pork or pizza. This was the best brew on tap during my visit.

A very decent rendition of the bock style. Nice typical brownish color. Nice malty aroma. The taste has a nice aftertaste. Otherwise, it is stylisticly perfect. Exceptionally smooth mouthfeel with perfect carbonation levels. Good drinkability, but a little astringincy comes through.
