12oz from a six pack. Poured into a goblet.

Pours with a crystal clear russet ruby body under a fluffy one finger head. Looks compelling.

Bock-like malts greet the nose, with some nice red fruit and warm bread. Minimal noble hops. Nice.

The flavor is simple and straightforward. Rich and layered malts with a nice and slightly sweet hop note to accompany. Very much within the style, and without any craziness or distractions. No flaws apparent. Little aftertaste. Nice balance.

The feel is on the sweeter side, with medium body. Clean.

Conclusion: A very nice American double bock. True to style, and doesn't get off track or flavorless like some American interpretations do. Harder to pull off, and earns my respect. Could be more complex, but I would much rather it taste good and simple like this, than compromise true flavors for increased "complexity". The original and classic German versions are better (than pretty much any American versions), but this is worthy of respect and I would drink it all the time.

Had on tap. Chocolate malt leads a malty bomb of goodness.

Pours clear dark Amber with very small head and low head retention, nose of bready bready malts practically no hop detection definite grain and heavy malts. Thick mouthfeel with a sweet bready taste that gets more savory afterwards, great beer, the sales associate that helped me described this beer as "the beer shiner wants to be".
