Tastes like backwash. Truly terrible beer from an otherwise excellent Texas brewery. I bought a 6-pack and had to sue the remaining 5 beers to cook with. On a positive note, they do make great buffalo wings:

Steam the wings using the beer instead of water for 10-12 minutes. Put them in the fridge for at least 3 hours. Then bake at 425 degrees for 20 minutes, flip, and bake for another 20 minutes. Remove from oven and toss in a bowl with whatever sauce you want. They are actually really good with the hint of bock beer.

12oz bottle with twist-off cap bottled on 01/22/2015 poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a clear deep amber with 2 fingers of head that recedes

Smell: Bready malts

Taste: Malt-forward with hints of toffee and and bread pudding and a slight hop bitterness in the finish

Mouthfeel: Medium and well-cabonated

Overall: A nice traditional bock. Offers a clean finish while still being satisfying and offering a good ABV for the style.
