Pours an amber color with a small brown head that dies off quickly and doesn't leave any lacing on the glass. The aroma has a caramel malt character and some sweetness. The flavor is nice and malty with some bready character. The mouthfeel is way thin, but drinkability is ok.

From the American Beer History collection. Apperance is dark ruby amber with an average, light brown head. Smell is moderately malty, with a bready aroma. Taste is malty, more of roasted malts than bready tastes. A little bit surprising. This is enjoyable, but needs a little more in the way of bready flavor. I would pick up an occasional sixer of this if it were made available.

Given the name of this beer I expected it to be a homage or imitation of Texas' own Shiner Bock. Instead I found an interesting take on the bock style.

An excellent aroma is this bock strongest point. Fairly hearty and rich. Brewed with Carapils, Brewer's two row, caramel and black malts- it has a malty nose. I found this Wisconsin Bock interesting. Being new at this beer style I have tasted nothing to compare it with. Ingredients seem well blended I found it smooth with a clean finish. Ahaaa the AROMA! It keeps calling me Bock

From the American Beer History sampler. Bottle says it is brewed by MDII, but with a little research, I found out it was contract brewed by Huber.
Pours a dark brown color, still has translucency, but for a bock beer this is pretty dark. Smells lightly malty , with some hints of dough. Taste is plenty malty for a Bock beer, not much of a hops taste, just Slightly-coffee tasting malt. Good drinkability, best when it warms a little.
