Notes: From the brewery: Battlefield Bock is a smooth and creamy Bavarian Style Bock Lager. It is brewed with our proprietary blend of Bavarian Dark Roasted Malts giving it a distinct taste with hints of coffee and chocolate. We add Noble Czech Saaz Hops to balance the flavor of this rich full bodied lager. Battlefield Bock is slow cold aged for a minimum of 8 weeks.

Drinking this at The Red Oak Brewery.
On tap poured into a pint glass.
Appears dark brown, nice head and lacing.
Smells spicy and sweet, definitely chocolatey.
Taste follows the nose nicely, malty upfront.
Mouth feel is medium for the style.
Overall a very good Bock that I would definitely order again.

Enjoyed an evening with this brew a few years back at a bar in Winston Salem. I cannot remember the name, but I see the place clearly. Sucks to get old. I'm partial to Red Oak products as they are local to the Triad and I've been downing them for well in excess of two decades. Looks like chocolate, tastes like chocolate, smells like chocolate and satisfies like chocolate.

Appearance: Pours dark chocolate brown with little or no head. What head there is leaves a nice lace on the glass.

Smell: Sweet, sweet, sweet. Chocolate tones everywhere, with hints of raisins.

Taste: Overly sweet up front, heavy chocolate tones, with hints of various fruits and raisins all over the palate. Finish with a hint of hop spice. Clean non lingering finish.

Mouthfeel: Very light beer, light carbonation, quite refreshing.

Overall: Suprising beer but not necessarily true to style. Lighter feel and much sweeter than other bocks I've had in the past. Not by any means a bad beer and I will have it again. Just not what I expected from a bock.

My Favorite Red Oak Beer. This reminds me of Home in Greensboro, NC. The slightly higher gravity followed up with the chocolate and coffee notes make it just the perfect beer.

***Cough*** - I wish they would bottle and distribute this beer!

Dreaming - If they weren't constrained to the German Purity Laws. I wonder what a smoked version of this or a barrel aged version of this would yield.
