Toasty and Smoky, very enjoyable, really really liked it, of my top 10, with 5,2% ABV you can only drink a couple before getting heavy on it, but still, i need to try more beers to come across a better one to rate, Guinness tops it for example.

Very thin in mouth feel and taste for a "bock"- it's not really a bock, it's a generic "dark" beer. It's not terrible. I often drink it on tap if the other selections in a bar are light beers or Bud. But it's a poor selection if you actually want a true bock beer.

I'm 55, and tried alot of different dark beers/lagers/stouts over the years, of all I've tried, this one is my favorite, even knowing it's water source is criticized by most folk, I really like the taste better than most dark beers, just the right amount of carbonation, without too much bitterness, I think the only one better has to be imported,,, Guinness.

It's good but there isn't anything that makes it stand out. It's beer with a smoother finish, and a medium body.

Taste Rating in Words: Just a blade of grass, in a field of grass, as far as the eye can see.

DATE: July 8, 2016... OCCASION: watching BattleBots on a Friday night with the fam... GLASSWARE: Michelob pokal... pours a dark amber, almost mahogany body that is nonetheless translucent, framing out a healthy amount of effervescence... the creamy white head sits ably, with variable bubbles... surprisingly robust plum and malt, though sugars suggest a macro birth... a soft, drinkably swift rush is provided, much like a flat soda... the taste is heavy in toasted malts, with plum, apple, and enough caramel to provide a true sweetness... some molasses as well... I find this beer to be above meager expectations, with its flavor profile sweet and sessionable, as a compliment to foods or as a succession of brews...
