No easily read date code

Pours a murked up brown with some floaties, with a thumb of tan head. Sediment settles down somewhat over time, great lacing & above average head retention

S: Dark fruit & faint brown bread notes

T: Brown bread, dryness & toffee, plus dryness up front. Dryness, toffee & little brown sugar, some leafy hop, & little pear as this warms, a little apple peel too, faint oxidation as well. Finishes with pear, leafy hops & more oxidation & some toffee, Became undrinkable once warm, a little sourness showed up as well

MF: Medium body, slight carbonation

Drinks alright up front, I suspect it is old. I would try again if assured I was getting fresh product

On tap at the Common Table. The beer pours a reddish-brown color with a tan head. The aroma has a good bit of cocoa in it, as well as some light spicing. The flavor is similar. I get some chocolate and dry cocoa, as well as some spice and a hint of earth. Medium mouthfeel and medium carbonation.

Pours a clear reddish brown color with off-white head. Caramel, roasted malts, and some sweetness on the nose; follows onto the palate. Medium bodied. Finishes with sweet toffee notes. Average bock.

So, this is an "ale" Bock according to the label.

A: 3.75 - Dark mahogany color with a small yet dense head. Not much lacing, though.
S: 3.50 - Notes of cocoa and caramel--not very bock-like.
T: 4.0 - Tastes good despite little similarity to the style--emphasis is squarely on the malt, with a lot of caramel. It's also a tad toasty (breadcrust-like), with just a light hint of roast.
M: 4.0 - Soft but substantial body--full.
O: 3.75 - Decent American amber.

Weightings (percentages): 20, 20, 40, 5, 15. Avg: 3.81.

I had this one on the recommendation of the bartender at the Flying Saucer in Fort Worth & I quote, “it’s like Shiner Bock but tastes good…”.

The beer is a reddish brown with some sticky beige lacing.

It has a nose of caramel and grains. Nice and fresh.

The taste is slightly sweet and grainy. A bit of slowpoke sucker, apple and whole grain bread.

The mouth has a bit of heft and I enjoyed the low carbonation levels.

Nice bock, the sweetness would keep it to a once a night beer for me
