Enjoyed on the patio at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth

Man alive this is some transcendentaly amazing good beer. A revelation in a glass that makes me want to shout hallelujah!

Yes. It. Is. That. Good.

Pours a clear dark mahogany brown with a smallish off-white head. Very striking contrast in colors.

Aroma is seductively rich with lots of maple.

Flavor is a mouthfeel. Incredibly rich and malty. A little bit of hops. Lots of maple.

Thick and rich mouthfeel. It reminds me of a thicker version of salvator.

This really is a dopplebock. Super rich. I can even pick up some bourbonish notes.

Extremely good. Highly recommended.

Revolver Bock by Revolver Brewing has a strong mahogany color and a dense head. The smells nutty and somewhat like chocolate, which while pleasant isn't similar to the style. The taste is a rich toasted toffee like taste that feels very strongly towards he malt with little to no taste coming from hops. Every gulp and sip is rich and full bodied with nice amounts of carbonation. Overall Revolver Bock is a pleasant American Ale with decent drinkability even if it isn't very inline with what a bock is meant to be.

12 oz bottle poured into tulip glass.

A - Pours a murky reddish brown with 1cm of beige head, which dissipates rapidly.

S - Sweet caramel and some smoky roasted malt.

T - Much like the nose, this tastes quite sweet with a major caramel note. There is a good amount of maple, some bread, and a good amount of roasted malt.

M - Thin-to-moderate body with low-to-moderate carbonation. Sticky mouthfeel.

O - One of my favorite bocks! If you're in Texas and want a good bock, forget Shiner and go for this!

Beautiful dark golden brown with a thick, creamy light brown head. Nice lacing. Very nice caramel flavor, very smooth with just a bit of bitterness. Overall, a very good beer. I have been enjoying the offerings fro Revolver.

Dark amber color. Strong caramel smell. Taste is well balanced -- malt sweetness dominates but does not overpower. Easy drinking, feels lighter than it could be. Overall good choice and would get again.
