I had this on tap at Barcade in Philadelphia, served chilled in a pint.

The color is medium amber with light haze and thick white cream with good retention and fine bead. The smell is malty with a nutty mildly sweet aroma and mild alcohol presence with a fruity ester. The texture is balanced with malt and moderate carbonation with mild spice and subtle dry toasted and clean dry medium bodied finish has a spiced hop element.

The flavor is great as the bock has the appropriate toasted maltiness you expect with woody hops and a very mild caramel accent with hint of nuttiness and gentle yeast flavor adding to the complexity with a traditional lager finish. Overall a wonderful beer, a very well crafted bock that is enjoyable to drink.

Pours a light copper color with a soapy white head with plenty of lace. Aroma of bready malts and faint toffee. Little hop bitterness or alcohol flavor, just a very clean German malt character. Medium bodied and well carbonated, full flavored and rich. Overall, a nice clean American made German bock perfect for enjoying the fall season.

I scored a pint of this on my last visit to Victory, on 08JUN14. Served in a stange glass.

Color was an attractive, rich, clear mahogany/chestnut. Had some carbo drifting about, and the head was creamy and off-white but thin. There was lots of lacing, though, as it really coated the glass. Aroma was restrained, with some caramel and toastyness being noted. Fairly smooth it was, with a decent, medium body.

I tasted lots of good caramel here, with light sweetness and a touch of nuttiness. The finish was dry, with some flowery hopping present to balance the malts. A solid brew; nicely done. Prosit!!
