Dark brown hue, thin and quickly diminishing head, a decent aroma of malts and some chocolate. Up front, rather thin, some caramel and roasted malty taste, yet they seem to diminish throughout. Some bready and toasty notes, yet they never develop. Finishes on the papery and rustic side. Very little flavoring or character, overall, just average.

One of those beers where you don't really expect much, and a "hey, not bad" reaction is a surpirse. Poured a magnificent, rich mahogany color. Not a lot of aroma, and the flavor was rather muted, with some very faint roasted malt flavors. A fair bit of apple was present throughout the beer. I would have like the beer to have been more assertive in the roasted malt flavors, but it was quite pleasant.

Pours a deep, dark brown....nice tan head on top that rims the glass nicely..quite impressive really...the nose is subtle malt sweetness(caramel) along with some burnt malts...the taste is basically sweet malt..borders on a little oversweet...a bit of a dry hop bite on the finish helps to balance things out a little but still a bit unsettling in the mouth....

All in all this is not a bad beer by any means....I got a 12er for $5 bucks and that is a steal. I enjoyed a few the other day while smoking a Don Carlos Robusto on the deck...I hate drinking top notch beer with good cigars, but I do enjoy a cheaper, solid dark beer to pair with my quality smokes and this fit the bill nicely....

Maybe a tich sweeter than the Berghoff Bock but for all I know it's the same beer with different labels.

Deep, clear, garnet. Slight beige head. In less than a minute, it becomes a slight beige collar that sticks around. Lacing is adequate. Aroma is good. Sweet, malty, fruitcakey and bready. This beer almost feels a little too carbonated in the mouth. Body is about medium. Taste is decent. A little yeasty. A little bready. A little sugary caramel goodness. Just a titch of molasses. All in all, a pretty average bock.

This brew poured a medium head of fine to large light brown bubbles that left a fair lacing. It had an opaque black brown body that was more like a stout than a bock. Its medium strength malt and roasted caramel arroma was very nice indeed. Its palate was very smooth and it gad a plesant malt fore and after taste.

This Bock poured a medium head with medium sized bubbles that mostly diminished. The lacing was good and the hue was brown. It had a moderately malty aroma to it and a fairly smooth flavor as well. The palate was light in body and the texture seemed to be a bit on the watery side.

Obtainable in a large case of returnables...

Clear reddish brown color with a refuge head of medium-sized bubbles. Incomplete and thin ring laces. Reserved aroma, barest sense of a burned diacetyl, almost like movie popcorn. Rather thin impression, tea-like, a bit of cinnamon and brown sugar on the tongue with a drawn-out and similar aftertaste. A little papery oxidation. Not particularly good, the rest of the case goes to the next party I go to. I'm not sure how this differs from the Berghoff Bock the company puts out at greater cost.

At $12 a case, how can you complain? This is actually a good beer. Dark red-brown with a madium body. Poor head retention, but who cares at $0.50 a brew! Nice malty flavor, a hint of hops, and you can drink it all night. I got hooked at college (was even cheaper then), and now I grab a few cases everytime I'm in Milwaukee. Beats the heck out of any other beer in its price range.
